I believe another reviewer called this a "Low pressure" journal and I love that description. It's accurate. The cover is beautiful, and I am one of those people who love lists and planners, so this is the perfect journal. Seal provides just enough structure for you to make the prompts your own and you can write as much or as little as you want. I find that sitting down and writing my list each week is something I look forward to.
More importantly, after each list there is an "action item." I truly think that this is one of the journal's biggest strengths. By focusing on the positives I am learning to cope with my stress and become more self aware. Obviously depression cannot be treated with this journal alone but I have made more progress with this journal than with a month of therapy.
The book is divided into seasons, and as we are 2/3 of the way through summer, I decided to start with List 36 - List Everything You Love to Do Outdoors. I started my list with my number one outdoor activity - "walking." Of course, I would prefer to be walking at Coast Guard Beach in Eastham on Cape Cod, but around the neighborhood also works quite nicely. For number two I put "water garden and flowers," which I love doing every day.
Now, here's where the book takes on new meaning. At the end of the space for our lists our author asks us to think about indoor activities that we can bring outdoors. I immediately wrote down "meditate." It seems to me that being outdoors will bring a new dimension to this important indoor activity. Then I wrote "eating." I thought, why not bring my cereal outdoors and enjoy it with some sunshine?
The very next day I meditated and ate breakfast outdoors and enjoyed these new experiences. Winter and ten degree below zero weather will be a problem for these activities, but I'll deal with that in January - now it is August.
I think readers of this review get the idea about the lists, but quickly I'll give one more example - List the Ways You Get Energized. Perfect. First on my list was "writing," as in writing this review. This activity takes all my concentration and attention and I like that. Next I put "music." I am listening to Mozart for study and concentration as I write this. I love Mozart and his music is a part of all my days. I won't bore you further, readers, you get the idea.
The 52 Lists Project is a well-made hard cover book with many delightful pictures inside of it. It will stand up well over time.
One more thing. Our author Moorea Seal has her own, quite extensive web site: (MooreaSeal.com/pages/52Lists). Those readers who want to connect with other list makers can do so using the web site. I decided not to take advantage of this opportunity.
Summary: If you are a list maker who wants to take your practice to a new level, I think you are going to enjoy The 52 List Project. Even if you don't make lists but think that perhaps list making might help you to understand what is important to you, buy this book. I don't think you will be disappointed
I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 for three reasons.
1. It is subtitled, "A year of weekly journaling inspiration" which is actually a little confusing. It's not really a book of writing prompts since you're making lists, not writing stories. (Though, it's yours so do what you want!)
2. I realized that what I like about lists is that feeling of accomplishment when crossing something off of it. These aren't that kind of lists, folks. Nothing to cross off!
3. The "take action" at the bottom actually kind of makes me feel stressed out. Not only do I not get to cross anything off of my lists, but now I have all these other things to do AND an entire book that I can't finish for a year. Ridiculous? Probably. But are there others out there like me who feel compelled to finish it in one sitting so they don't have to feel guilty when they realize it's one more thing they never finished? I hope so... so, that being said, I haven't done it a week at a time like it was intended. I usually do 3 or 4 prompts at once. It's fun to think through what I'd do with a million dollars, or the things that make me laugh, or my quirks, or the people that light up my life...
The great thing about these kinds of books though is that there aren't any real limits. Do with it as you will, whatever sparks joy!
Truthfully, I debating on purchasing this for awhile and decided against it until I leafed through one at a local store. The value here makes it that much more appealing as it is $7-$10 more if bought in a bookstore or other outlet.
