Practising gratitude also helps kids bounce back from stressful events and deal with adversity by acting as a buffer against internalising symptoms.

Teaching our kids the simple, practical skills that helps ensure they are happy in their youth is extremely important as it can set them up for a great life, and help them create amazing experiences in their childhood. After all those are the moments we always remember.


99% of basic gratitude journals on the market fail because it's almost impossible to get children to WANT to use a gratitude journal if it's hard to read, not engaging and flat out boring…

This is why our Resilient ME® Gratitude Journal will introduce your child to a whole NEW way of gratitude journaling,

Our guided journal is designed to be super easy and FUN to follow along, which in turn motivates kids to want to journal regularly.

On top of that we developed a new approach to gratitude journaling that uses visuals and pictures, as a way to guide kids along their journaling process and make it more exciting.

After all, visuals are far easier to engage with and follow along than text or blank pieces of paper.


Feeling grateful to others makes us inspired and uplifted. These feelings of elevation bolster motivation to become healthier, more generous people but also better, more productive workers.

There is scientific research that kids who practice gratitude are more engaged in their schoolwork and hobbies and have higher grades.



How and why does Gratitude work?

Gratitude is an easy and effective way of retraining your brain. If you focus on the good, soon you will see more, enjoy more and appreciate more. Here are some quick facts about the benefits of practicing gratitude:

Resilience can be learned at ANY age!

Did you know that you can literally rewire your brain through the experiences and attitudes we expose it to.

Practising gratitude is the basis of all AwesoME Inc journals and science tells us it is one of the easiest and most effective ways of retraining the brain.

Robert Emmons, a world leading scientific expert on gratitude, says, “When disaster strikes, gratitude provides a perspective from which we can view life in its entirety and not be overwhelmed by temporary circumstances.”

Not only does practising gratitude help to increase resilience it can also help to:

  • -Increase social connection
  • -increase empathy and compassion
  • -lessen anxiety and depression symptoms
  • -facilitate higher cognitive functions
  • -create emotional stability
  • -strengthen the immune system
  • -reduce symptoms of illness
  • -improve sleep
  • -make you less bothered by aches and pains
  • -increase productivity
  • -make you less materialistic
  • -make you kinder
  • -make you happier.


Designed for kids to feel a greater connection and feel more satisfied with friends, family, school, community and themselves.

Studies say that gratitude journaling helps with developing enhanced empathy for others.

By focusing on feelings of gratitude towards other people it helps children to see what others give up to help them, whether it is their time or something physical like a toy. It helps them to be able to put themselves in the other person's shoes and see things from their perspective.

Not only does this make it easier to connect, but it becomes easier to build lifelong friendships.


The more thankful we feel, the more likely we are to act pro-socially toward others.

The Resilient ME® Gratitude Journal guides kids on ways they can use kindness to help others, and how to show thanks to the people who have helped them.

Gratitude motivates us to be more empathetic and show more compassion not only to others but also ourselves. When you openly show your gratitude towards others it also can cause a ripple effect for them to feel grateful for us and this sets up a beautiful virtuous cascade of gratitude!



It is our natural human pre-disposition to focus on what is going wrong, but gratitude teaches kids to flip the switch and focus on what they already have in their lives. According to studies by research psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky and colleagues, it has been determined that after taking into account our genetically predetermined personality (50%) and the circumstances we are born into (10%), a whopping 40% is left over. This 40% is our behaviour, intential activity and MINDSET – that is 40% that is in our ability to control!

The thoughts and behaviours that characterise naturally happy people can be nurtured, acquired, or directly taught and our Resilient ME® Gratitude Journals are full of the simple tools to help kids learn these behaviours that will positively influence their well-being.


This is a big one if we want our kids to be have a positive mindset and the ability to self-regulate BIG emotions. Practising gratitude not only helps build resilience and a better attitude, but it's also great for showing kids how to manage and embrace emotions. Using gratitude as a tool to find the positives and self-soothing techniques to flip moods helps kids control those overwhelming emotions much more effectively.

Challenging negative thought patterns also helps to calm the anxious and boost the moods of those who are depressed.


By learning how to focus on the positive things about themselves - their strengths and abilities - rather than what they are not good at, has been shown to increase confidence in children.

Focusing on what is important, maintaining a positive attitude and learning to stay calm when facing challenges can make all the difference to the confidence of your child.

It's important for kids to develop a positive attitude early in life, so they understand that:

  • - they can ask for help when they need it
  • - they can learn from mistakes
  • - they can get better with practice
  • - getting better takes time
  • - effort makes them stronger
  • - welcoming challenging themselves
  • - regulate emotions
  • - focus on strengths

What others are saying...

This should be funded into the hands of every primary school aged child. Teaching kids how to look after their mental health and about resilience is as important as teaching them how to swim, or read and write.”

“As a mum and a mental health professional I use gratitude journaling for myself, with my clients and my kids to build in and strengthen good wellbeing habits into every day. Both gratitude and journaling are powerful wellbeing tools and the gratitude journals by AwesoME Inc are actually the best that I’ve come across.

Dr Emma Woodward
Child Psychologist

I thought they were terrific. I actually pinched a couple and took them home for my two kids. That was probably my favourite workshop and I think teaching gratitude is an important thing about appreciating what people have from the smallest to the biggest of things.”
