There’s no silver bullet that will create mental wellness. When we know that, we can stop looking for it.
Mental wellness is the outcome of all the little things you consistently do to nourish and look after yourself. Moon Turtle helps to identify the patterns of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that aren’t serving you, and focus your efforts on those that do.

I absolutely adore this fabulous idea. This booklet is the perfect, compact, log for tracking life throughout the year.
It is simple, well spaced, unpretentious, and has just what you need to jot down things worth remembering (for "better" and "worse") which you might otherwise forget or take for granted.
I think this is a great tool for both gratitude practice and for learning from, inspiring us to roll with the punches and keep on showing up in the land of the living each day. It also pairs well with the Moon Turtle Mood Journal if one is so inclined to use both. Easy to pack in a purse or backpack, to keep in the auto, or to stow neatly on a desk or bookshelf.
Thank you for creating such a worthwhile idea, which is quite valuable to the end of encouraging being present for one's lived experience. It makes a nice gift as well.
– Jo, What Did I Even Do This Year?
After many hours and days spent Googling, I fortuitously happened upon the Moon Turtle Mood Journal.
My aim was to discover the most simple, uncomplicated, aesthetically pleasing rendering of a mood tracker, which would translate to a tool I would both enjoy using and stick to (for a reasonable duration). I found all of these attributes in the Moon Turtle.
I feel it has just enough detail to be at once useful and not off-putting. I do not become overwhelmed when I open the cover and look at the pages.

The whole concept behind this is so good! What I like best about this is that it's such a simple tool, with the potential to be super effective, and because you guys are New Zealanders, the language/the way it's written, is more relatable!
Moon Turtle journals are a manageable, one-page a day check-in that you can easily flick back to see how things went a few days earlier. The info on the back with sites and numbers, if needed will be heaps helpful for those who need it, too!

I use it night and morning! If I miss a night or morning, I don’t feel guilty or annoyed, I just go on to the next page.
This journal is just simple and detailed enough to be extremely helpful and not burdensome. So far it’s been great. It feels like having a little friend at my bedside to always ask me how my day went. At the same time I’m creating a map of my moods and emotions so that down the road my mind can better navigate.

You know what what’s been missing from our lives since birth? A holistic, in and outside education system unpacking, processing and empowering of our emotions. Our feelings. Those beautiful things we should be acknowledging and working with every day of our lives. It’s not about being ’happy’, it’s about understanding the natural cycle of emotions. We love the concept of journaling, and cannot give Moon Turtle enough kudos for this.
