I love journaling and it’s one of the best things I’ve added to my life. Not to mention, it’s one of my go-to remedies for self-care. Personally, I use journaling to mind dump things that could be blocking aspirations and happiness. We all have things that seep into our minds and distract us. When I started journaling a couple of years ago, I used to do it almost everyday and I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the hustle and bustle of everyday life made it hard to journal everyday. Well, I recently found an easy way to help me journal everyday; guided journals.
