Does it really work?
Yes! We’re proud to say we had the Self-Love Journal tested, and the results speak for themselves.
One of our favorite results was the fact that after only three weeks of using the journal, participant saw significant changes!
In just 21 days, users already experienced:
- 30% Increase in Self-Kindness
- 30% Increase in Common Humanity
- 32% Increase in Self-Acceptance
- 28% Boost in Mindfulness
- 23% Less Isolated
But along with positivity, they also found the journal helped reduce negative thoughts.
- Self-judgement decreased by 28%
- Self-blame dropped by 29%
- And over-identification went down by 27%
So what does that all mean?
Simple! After using the journal, people are more confident in themselves, more accepting of themselves, and better prepared to handle negative thoughts!

We've been thrilled to see parents work through the journal with their teenage children, couples tackle self-love together, and independent readers find strength and resilience between its pages. Join our team of self-compassionate thinkers today! Here's what some of our self-loving learners had to say...
I found this through an ad. I enjoy working through the prompts and will continue to try my best to use this journal to be better. I still struggle with mental health and with the combination of journals like this and help from doctors, I hope to help myself work through my issues and demons.
Last year I started focusing more on my mental health.
I noticed a simple & effective pattern —
When I put myself first, I’m a better me for my daughter, friends, and family.
As the wise old saying goes, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
Why can’t this be true for mothers too?
We spend everyday caring for our little humans that sometimes we forget to care for ourselves in the midst of the chaos.
Switch Research is dedicated to offering affordable mental health resources for all! Including self-love, as they have worked along side psychologists, clinical therapists, and psychiatrists to deliver a 13-week journal with daily prompts to help reframe my thoughts and to be more mindful with how I speak to myself.
Really happy to work on self love journal as usually we are taught that love is something that you receive from parents, siblings, partners etc. However, loving SELF in indian society is considered as selfish. To be able to break the chain of thought patterns is what is required. Thanks a lot for guiding and providing the valuable insights on daily basis that is able to clear certain self doubts so as to embrace self completely...just as I am.. Grateful 🙏
I bought the print journal for my niece who is struggling with self-loathing over a significant weight gain (pandemic pounds). I experienced the same self-loathing for the same reason, and it was absolutely why I struggled to get back into a healthier lifestyle. The self-loathing delayed attending to a problem. When I read the Switch website and realized the journal was research-based I ordered it for my niece. When it arrived, I looked it over, and decided it was something that, even though I had stumbled upon getting back on track, I knew my success would only be temporary if I didn’t address the underlying negative thinking. When I realized there was an electronic version of the journal I ordered it for myself. At this point, I’m at day 23, and I’ve made it through the holiday excesses without succumbing to my old ways. I did a fair share of indulging with my many family events, but not once did I fall victim to dwelling on failures. At all times I felt positive about my journey. My niece is working on it, just since New Years Day, and I have talked about it with a few friends. Admittedly, I’m retired, so my mornings are rarely a time to rush, and I’ve easily incorporated journaling into my morning routine of self-care.
I’m loving the Switch Self Live Journal. It’s exactly what I needed with simple step by step daily pages to reflect m current feelings about myself. If you are experiencing a rough time in your life and want to realize your strength and worth, this is the perfect journal to use!
I am an LCSW psychotherapist, and I've recommended self love and self compassion journals and workbooks often. Yours was found by a client of mine who told me about it. I wanted to get it myself to look it over. It seems like a wonderful resource.
It’s fun to turn to something daily that brings you joy about yourself and helps you to reflect upon ways to help bring your life more enjoyment and make you a richer person for yourself and others.
Ready to love myself!
I will be starting it today since we are in a new year. Looking forward to getting started. Thank you
First week has been great🙂
