What educators are saying

Super easy to use and a great end-of-day relaxing task for my students, especially with some soft background music and low lighting :)
SEL is so important in these times. Having these resources is nice to pull out and use when 7th grade is feeling overwhelmed

Help kids and young adults practice mindfulness with a yearlong mindfulness journal. Mindfulness activities can help promote happiness, attention, emotional control, and self-regulation. The 200 mindful prompts in this journal include activities for mindful observance, using senses, deep breathing techniques, coloring, emotional check-ins, guided visualizations, yoga, and more. Daily activities are specifically tailored to kids and young adults. Complete them as a full class, a small group, or individually.

Digital Version

Updated: I have included a digital journal for Google Slides. Please note that some pages are best suited for printing, such as coloring pages. However, I thought it was important to add a digital version to allow for use during distance learning.

Mindfulness means being present in the moment with your thoughts and feelings without making judgements. It is being aware of what is happening but not being overwhelmed. This can be an incredibly helpful strategy for kids and young adults who struggle with self-regulation or coping with challenging emotions.

Journal for the Full Year!

Note that this is a complete yearlong mindfulness journal with daily activities for the entire year. That means your students will have 200 unique mindful activities and prompts to take them through every day. Just complete one section per day (or however many you want!).

How to Use

This journal is a no-prep strategy to integrate mindfulness on a daily basis. Using it is simple! Just print the pages and allow students to complete sections as you see fit. You can choose to have students complete one section per day, or as many as you have time for.

You can use the journal in the morning to help students start their day off on a positive note, right before morning meeting as an emotional check-in, or any time of the day!

Skills Targeted

While the main focus on the journal is mindfulness, several related skills are integrated into the journal prompts and activities. The skills highlighted include:

Mindfulness: Learning to be present in the moment, including being aware of emotions, feelings, and thoughts.

Self-Awareness: Developing a greater understanding of individual thoughts, feelings, strengths, needs, and hopes for the future.

Emotional Awareness: Being able to notice and identify feelings.

Coping Strategies: Using skills to help manage stress and tough emotions on the spot.

Positive Self-Talk: Using helpful words to provide motivation and encouragement.

Growth Mindset: Using strategies to grow your skills and abilities with hard work, determination, and grit.

Compassion: Developing care and concern for others.

Self-Love: Developing acceptance and admiration for yourself.

Self-Reflection: Being able to observe, question, and think about actions to help be the best you.

Sample Activities

Here are a few sample activities students will be completing. Please see the preview for more!

  • Mindfulness is learning to be present in the moment. Take a look around you and think about what you can see, hear, feel, smell and taste. Then, list below.
  • Practice mindful breathing! Use your finger to climb up each mountain as you slowly breathe in. Slide down the mountain as you slowly breathe out.
  • Spending time outdoors is a healthy way to practice mindfulness. List at least three activities you can do to spend more time outside. Then, picture yourself doing them.
  • Be the eagle! Close your eyes. Image you are a bald eagle soaring through the sky. What do you see, hear, feel, smell, and taste? Describe your visualization below.

Note that both color and black/white journals are included! A student cover page and a welcome page to introduce mindfulness are included as well.
