For years I used to shop for a blank notebook and do my own journaling; even though it was great as a beginner, I often found it to be ” too much Work.”

I have to think and write down the prompts and affirmations questions, and then its answer.

It felt like a lot of work, and I only could think of little things as per my knowledge.

If you are someone like me, guided journals will be your best friend!

What I love about them is-

  • They are designed with a lot of research to help us get what we are looking for and make us think about the questions we usually would not.
  • They are easy to use in your busy work life and don’t take too much of your time!

Especially if you are a beginner, then I recommend getting guided journals.

What different types of journals are there?

I feel there is a journal for everything, but mainly journals that fulfill our everyday basic needs can be categorized as

  • Gratitude Journal
  • Mental Health Journal
  • Travel Journal
  • Daily Intentional Journal
  • Memory Journal
  • Reflecting Journal

But What I love about this is how minimal and yet time effective it is! It is LITERALLY for ordinary people like us who do not have much time but still want to practice gratitude and Mindfulness in our day-to-day life.

It takes 1 and a half minutes in the morning and night, so a total of just five minutes of your day.

What you will find in this-
