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.
Actually, one of the reasons it was hard to journal everyday is because there were times when I didn’t know what to write. Who gets writers block when trying to journal? This girl, but this is no longer an issue thanks to guided journaling. Keep reading if you’re interested in finding out more about guided journals and their benefits.
Guided journals have the same look and objective as traditional journals with blank pages for you write your mind away. However, a guided journal include pages with questions for you to answer and elaborate. Some of the questions are super simple and you can probably answer it in one sentence, but don’t be basic. Don’t just answer the question; purge the reasoning for your answer. Trust me, the words will come pouring out on the pages via your pen.
Recently, I started using a guided journal that included beautiful color images with inspirational messages on the opposite page of the guided pages. The bright images helped set my vibe and reminded me that I’m in a positive and free space. Plus, the inspirational images are a nice touch and are so beautiful.
