Hey there! I'm Mena Joseph - the creator of Thriving Good Life.

I design guided prompt journals and printable journal pages - primarily for women who are intentional about improving the relationships they have with themselves, with others, and the world around them.

But really, these journals are for anyone who wants to increase self-awareness, experience inner peace, love, and compassion through a self-reflective practice. 

Regular journaling will help you:

  • Learn more about yourself and create a deeper, more meaningful connection with YOU.
  • Improve your relationships with others by improving the way you communicate and interact.
  • Increase your self-awareness to gain a better understanding of what’s going on in your life.

        Among other things.

The key to a deeper connection, and  a better understanding of yourself is to ask good questions. The type of questions that get to the root of who you really are, and what you really want and need.

Often times it can be challenging to know how or where to start.

And if you're stuck in such a place, this is where I can help.

My goal is to make the process of journaling simpler - with guided prompt questions that offer a starting point for writing and organising your thoughts. 

Think of this place as a resource of tools that help you get in touch with your emotions. Of meaningful questions to help you explore your innermost thoughts, feelings, and behaviour.

Of course, journaling isn't a magic pill, and keeping a journal isn't for everyone.

But, if you're deliberate about building a habit that supports your wellbeing.

And you're ready to experience open and honest introspection that will lead to better relationships, then you're in the right place.

Ever struggled to keep or start a journal but want to learn how? Read this.

A Bit About Me

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology and health science, a master's in health psychology, and a certificate in counselling skills.

I was on track to becoming a psychotherapist, here in the UK, but then something changed.

You see, I love helping people, but the clinical route wasn't what I really wanted to pursue.

Not deep down.

And so I found another way to put my background in psychology to good use... enter Thriving Good Life.

But look, I'm not all fur coat and no knickers.

Degrees and theoretical knowledge are one thing. They're nice to have and help me apply science-y know-how to the products I create.

Lived experience of transforming my own life through journaling. That's something else. My experiences make it possible for me to share personal insights that are helpful.

I've been journaling for over a decade.

I'm on a mission to create tools that help people to help themselves.

And journaling, well. It's one of the most powerful forms of self-therapy out there.

I've witnessed the power of journaling first-hand, and it's supported (and continues to support) me in so many ways. 

Through journaling I've gotten to:

  • Heal after painful breakups and loss.
  • Navigate my way through difficult relationships with family members.
  • To know myself deeply - figuring out what I want in my life (and what I don't want).
  • Challenge my inner critic that wants to tell me I'm not good enough.
  • Better manage my emotions, feelings, thoughts, and actions.
  • Develop habits that support me in living a healthy and intentional life.

I'm a meditator, researcher, and lifelong learner in the areas of positive and social psychology, and human nature as a whole.

And I'm looking forward to creating more tools to help you to transform into the best possible version of yourself. Because hey, who doesn't what to live a Thriving Good Life?
