I’m a big believer in the benefits of journaling, especially when it comes to keeping a gratitude journal. It’s harder than ever in today’s world to maintain a positive attitude, and a gratitude practice helps you focus on all that’s good in your life. Paws for the Good Stuff: A Cat Lover’s Journal for Creating a Purrfectly Pawsitive Life offers daily and monthly journaling prompts to help you create a sustainable gratitude practice, inspired by cats.

I just five minutes twice a day, you can reap the benefits:

  • Increased emotional and mental well-being
  • Replacing negative thoughts with a more positive mindset
  • Enjoy a better night’s sleep
  • Live a more joyful life
  • Connect with your cat in a unique and meaningful way


I’m all about learning from our cats, and I love the book’s feline spin on the basic concepts of creating a journaling and gratitude routine. “We can use a helping hand from time to time, but for  those of us who feel that happiness is where our cat lies, there is nothing better than a loving paw to crack open our hearts and transform our lives,” writes Carlyn Montes De Oca in the book’s introduction.


The book features plenty of lovely illustrations to enhance your daily practice. I love the structure of this program, but I especially love that it incorporates our love for our cats. I can’t help but think that not only will this book bring more positivity into your life, it will also deepen your bond with your cat as you reflect on your cat’s gifts and perhaps allow yourself to be inspired to be a little more cat like in your daily life.

Paws for the Good Stuff is available from Amazon.
