“Always use your journals as examples in my work.
Best I’ve ever come across.”
DR EMMA WOODWARD – The Child Psychology Service
“This should be funded into the hands of every primary school aged child in New Zealand.
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.”
ANNA – Parent
It actually makes me quite emotional because I think how resources like this could’ve helped me so much as a child. You should be super proud of the things you are doing to help our kids.”
AIMEE – Parent
Childhood is the perfect time to develop resilience and the Resilient ME® guided journals are the perfect tool to start this journey.
A5 size (148 x 210mm) contains 100 pages and a soft cover.
We can’t always stop our kids facing challenges but we can give them the skills so that these challenges don’t break them.
And the best news?! Resilience can be learned through fostering a positive attitude, having the ability to regulate emotions, being able to focus on strengths rather than weaknesses, making meaningful connections and creating healthy habits. All features of our new resilience and gratitude journal.

Children are capable of extraordinary things…
Adversity is a fact of life, but being resilient means they are better able to cope during hardships or challenges, and sometimes bounce back stronger than they were before.
Resilience is more than just putting on a brave face, it is having the capacity to persevere and to recover quickly from difficulties – disappointments, setbacks, illness and tragedy.
It is one of the best skills we can teach to our children.
Helping ourselves and those we love survive through difficult times can seem like a distant dream. But imagine not just surviving but thriving. Becoming stronger and wiser through the experiences of everyday life. That is what building resilience is all about.
Childhood can be a challenging time – independence, self-identity, self-worth all become increasingly important. Throw in hormones, schoolwork and social life and they’re navigating a load of emotions.
Plus children are more stressed than ever before, there are higher expectations and schedules filled with team sports, swimming and dancing lessons, homework, chores, and after school tuition, but often we are navigating the problem solving for them. We remove the barriers to success, we are not letting them take risks or giving them the skills they need when they face adversity.
The AwesoME Inc Resilient ME® journal will introduce your child to the simple ways you can build resilience.
Together you can start building your family resilience tool-kit that’ll set them up with life-long skills. Because ultimately as parents we just want our kids to be happy, confident and resilient.
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, the world’s 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.”¹
If you focus on the good, soon you will see more, enjoy more, appreciate more…
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.²
Your attitude is yours to choose…
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 or intential activity – that is 40% that is in our ability to control.³
So 40% of your happiness is subject to manipulation! The thoughts and behaviours that characterise naturally happy people can be nurtured, acquired, or directly taught.
AwesoME Inc Resilient ME® journals are full of the simple tools to help you learn these behaviours that will positively influence your well-being.
