How to create a kindness journal.

All you need to make a kindness journal is an unlined notebook and then anything else you can find plus a splash of creativity.

Don’t just write! 

Illustrate, decorate, list make, mind map and use anything and everything that inspires you.

Journals look amazing if you use mixed media, bits from nature, newspaper cuttings, paint, crayons, coloured pencils, ink photo, stickers, bits of fabrics.
