My Book of Brilliant Thoughts, Doodles and Drawings
An A5 note book to support your child's emotional health!
What is My Brilliant Book of Thoughts, doodles and drawings?
This is a notebook with an emotional wellbeing twist! Remember the days before technology, when writing and doodling helped children relax, promoting mindfulness and the processing of thoughts and feelings? That's exactly what this notebook encourages!
Research shows that writing and doodling can promote emotional health by facilitating the brain's ability to process them and make more sense of them leading to improved emotional awareness. The aim of this notebook is to guide children or teenagers back to these forms of expression for their wellbeing.
How does this notebook support my child's wellbeing?
Inside the appealing front page, there is space for your child to write their name and take ownership of their notebook so it becomes their safe space to explore their thoughts.
There is double page introduction explaining how writing and doodling can support their emotional health and reassure them that sometimes thoughts are brilliant, for example in their creativity or imagination, but sometimes unhelpful in the form of anxiety etc. This message will help your child understand that thoughts aren't the same as truth. The introduction page encourages them to use their notebook to doodle or create as a form of mindfulness, and/or write to explore thoughts and feelings to make sense of them.
What's inside the notebook?
The internal pages of the book are set up as a double page spread with a page for thoughts and a page for doodling and drawing. This is clearly indicated through the graphics and text in the notebook. Throughout the book, after each 7 days of journal/doodle space, is a structured space that encourages your child to check in with their emotions and then doodle and draw something positive from their week. The notebook is otherwise for your child to write and doodle freely, exploring their own mind.
