"Well-being is present when a person realises their potential, is resilient in dealing with the normal stresses of life, takes care of their physical well-being and has a sense of purpose, connection and belonging to a wider community. It is a fluid way of being and needs nurturing throughout life."
Journaling is an easy, in-expensive and accessible habit for all, scientific research has proven time again that the act of journaling reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression by up to 40%, it aides in the development of mindfulness and well-being, it increases emotional intelligence and it stimulates cognitive development.
The question should not be Why journal?.... it should be Why are we not already?
We have designed The Playbook Journal to align and follow on from the Junior Certificate key skills requirements, providing your students with content, activities and space to explore their own well-being, mental health and self development.
Also providing your teachers, a resource with a wealth of opportunity for group discussion, creative writing, introspective activities, mindfulness and well-being
