AwesoME Inc® journals are more than a gratitude journal – they are also a resilience building tool. When crisis hits having skills that build up your resilience can be a life-saver. Helping yourself and those you love survive through difficult times can seem like a distant dream.
Imagine not just surviving but thriving, and becoming stronger and wiser through the experiences of everyday life. That is what building resilience is all about, and in AwesoME Inc® products you will find added tools and techniques, based on the latest scientific research, to help you do just that. Read through the pages and fill in the activities to learn amazing yet simple ways you can build your emotional resilience.
AwesoME Inc® is headed by Nicky Perry, a graphic designer and mum of two with a background in scientific publishing and psychology.
In 2015 the first AwesoME Inc gratitude journal was created after Nicky was introduced to the concept of practicing gratitude by her then business partner. She began to investigate the science behind it and soon discovered that a regular practice of gratitude not only reduces depression and anxiety, but can boost your immune system, lower your blood pressure and rewire your brain to bring more joy, optimism and happiness to your everyday life.
Known by her friends as a ‘good listener,’ Nicky had long been the go-to support person for loved ones in times of mental distress. The more Nicky learned about the power of gratitude, resilience and positive psychology, the more she wanted to share these tools with others BEFORE they reached a point of crisis.
And so AwesoME Inc® was born. From an initial modest print run of just 50 journals, AwesoME Inc® now supplies educational resources, gratitude journals and resilience training to thousands of individuals, families, schools, sports clubs, government departments and corporate customers across Australasia and beyond.
