Are you trying to start journaling more but have no clue where to start or which kind of journals are the best for you? Maybe you’ve heard about the benefits of journaling, and you’d like to try it out. Or perhaps you’re just looking for another fun and creative way to spend your free time.
Starting the habit of journaling can sometimes be challenging, especially if you haven’t done it before. However, the great thing about journaling is that it can be done in so many ways; you just need to find out which way suits you best.
Journaling is not a one size fits all kind of thing. Some people like free journaling. Others want to use journal writing prompts. Other people don’t like writing in a journal and prefer to do some doodling or coloring in a bullet journal. And some like a combination of both.
When it comes to journaling, it should be something you enjoy, something to help you improve your life. It is a form of self-care, and it should be done on your own time.
There is not one particular time that is the best for everyone. Some like to Journal in the morning, others at night after a hard day. Or maybe in the middle of the day to let of some steam.
Journaling might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you are thinking of starting a journal, here are some of the best journals you can try out. Or if you want to encourage someone to start journaling, these journals would work great.
The Best Journals to Start Journaling More
The Daily Journal
Journaling in the morning can help you be mindful and start your day off more relaxed and in a better mood.
Our daily journal is the perfect journal for if you don’t have a lot of time to journal but would like to make it a morning habit anyway.
The journal has 4 journal writing prompts to start your morning. It can help you to start your morning with gratitude and a positive vibe. There is also room for reflection on the day at the end of the day.
Another great thing about the Daily Journal is that it has a motivational/inspirational quote at the beginning of each week. This can help you start each week with new motivation to take on everything you need to do that week.
There are enough pages to journal every day for 6 months. Answering the morning journal prompts can be done in 10-15 minutes. The same goes for the reflection at the end of the day.
‘Pause Breath Relax’ Relaxation Journal
Relaxing is an excellent form of self-care, we all need to make time for. Whether it is just because you’re tired and need some time to recharge or because you’ve had a stressful day and need to express and let out all that is going on inside and relax.
This journal is like that friend you need to go to when you need to let off some steam, and the great thing is, it fits in your bag. The Pause Breathe Relax Journal says it all in the name. This journal is great for when you need a break, take a breather, and relax after or during hard and long days.
The journal has room to express your feeling in words or in the form of coloring or drawing. Both writing and drawing or coloring can have a relaxing effect on your mind. It brings out the creativity in you and helps you to get your mind off of things.
These activities can also help you to think clearly and unravel those thoughts and feelings that are going on inside of you.

Getting to know yourself better and understanding yourself is a key factor in living a life you love and enjoy.
The Self-discovery Journal has 100 Questions that can help you to get to know yourself better. These questions are divided into 4 parts: Personality, Self-image, Goals, and Loved ones.
