A world of positivitity!
44 FREE “Pads” on the Back™ Templates in 42 world languages (so far) by Dr. Jane Bluestein & Lynn Collins, Ph.D.
Download for FREE! (Click here to go directly to the languages for your free downloads.)
The same 8 sentence starters in our original pre-printed “Pads” on the Back are now available in a reproducible template you can use to print your own positive statements—as many and as often as you’d like. Choose your own paper and colors and watch faces light up when you share these notes of appreciation!
With these little notes in hand, you’ll see how easy it is to start noticing and remembering what you appreciate in others. They make it easy to be positive, and serve as reminders that it only takes a few seconds to let the special people in your life know that you value them.
And now they’re FREE!
After 30 years of selling the paper version of “Pads” on the Back, Lynn and I decided to expand the mission and intention of this product: to give people a simple way to spread mesages of appreciation and recognition, and the positive feelings that go with this acknowledgement, to as many people as possible—all around the world.
We know all too well how easy it is to get caught up in negativity and criticism, and that sometimes, just having a concrete reminder can turn this negative focus around.
So here they are! Help yourself. Make as many copies as you want, in any language you can use. Share them wherever you see fit, and encourage others to use them.
The only things we ask is that you keep the copyright notice on the page and share these materials for free. If you wish to support this site, your help will be much appreciated. (See below.)
What you get
The template is a one-page PDF download with eight different message starters for you to complete, including:
A special thank you for…
One of the nicest things about you is…
It’s nice to know I can count on you for…
I noticed something special about you today. It is…
You can feel very proud of yourself for…
Each template is a one-page PDF, 8 1/2” x 11” with eight different messages and crop marks for easy cutting. Great gift idea!
Like getting a hug on paper!
