Guided Journals for Self Discover

Using a guided journal is the easiest way to get started with a writing journal.

The benefits of writing in a journal have been well documented and the process can impact you in positive ways such as reducing stress, improving physical well-being, and even helping to reduce the symptoms of mild depression.

A journal also offers a safe place to explore our deepest thoughts and feelings. With a regular journaling practice, over time you’ll even begin to notice the beliefs, patterns and habits that shape your life. Through deeper self-exploration you can modify or change those beliefs, patterns and habits that hold you back, in order to live a more fulfilling and happy life.

Guided Journals

If you’ve never kept a writing journal before or are unsure about how to get started with one, a guided journal is a great way to begin. Instead of staring at a blank page wondering what to write or how to begin, a guided journal includes thoughtful questions and prompts to get you started.
