Journaling: Why you should try it

Updated: Nov 16, 2023

For Christmas this year I received a book called The Thoughtful Journal. My initial reaction was ‘oh great another book with empty pages that I’ll never write anything in’.


When you first open up the journal there is a page of all the months for the year. I typically circle birthdays or events in this section to remind myself.

The next two sections are the ones you begin to journal in. The first section is the monthly overview, this is where you write about your past month and plan this month’s goals. It also asks what you look forward to and encourages you to plan something fun. This section also always has a fun question to answer that is different every month. The last important thing this section has is the habit tracker. Where you can track your habits to see if you’re breaking them!


I never liked just journaling my thoughts in an empty notebook. If you’re like that too, then consider The Thoughtful Journal. It helps me vent, set goals, track my habits and reflect. I enjoy the fun questions you get to fill out and all the quotes. This book makes journaling fun and easy.
