Food for Thought – a journal for appreciating daily life

appreciative inquiry journaling, Food for Thought, Appreciating People, UK


Download our introductory guide, What is appreciative journaling?, here, which shows you how to get the most out of journaling. We’ve also developed a protocol to evaluate and support reflective learning. If you’re a trainer and want to use the journal in your workshops, email us at and we’ll send you the protocol.

Appreciative journaling is based around the idea of noticing, and recording, the good things in your day. Food for Thought encourages you to develop an appreciative attitude to life, prompting and inspiring you to notice the good things.

This method of positive psychology is becoming increasingly widespread, and has been adopted by the NHS, homeless hostels and the US army, amongst others, to support personal wellbeing.

The tips, tools and techniques you’ll find in Food for Thought can be used at home and at work, helping you focus on life’s positives as you learn to develop your appreciative self, flourish and support your wellbeing.

Food for Thought encourages users to follow nef’s Five Ways to Wellbeing, and is sponsored by Liverpool PCT’s Decade of Health and Wellbeing.
