Fun Journaling Ideas for 2016!!


As y'all might know, I'm a huge fan of journaling. I absolutely love to write, and recording life is just such a special thing. There's nothing that I love more than looking back through old journals and remembering tons of fun times, inside jokes, remembering emotions and people and experiences. But I'm the first to admit that I'm terrible at actually keeping a journal. I love it, but gosh, I'm so bad at it! I always forget to write, or I procrastinate doing it, and then I'm so long winded that it takes forever. It's so frustrating! I really hate it because journaling is something that I really care about, but I just don't do it enough.

For Christmas this year, I got not one but TWO awesome journals. I was so excited to receive them, and I've been having a great time filling them in.



This is the Q&A a Day 5-Year Journal. Each day has a prompt, and four lines to write your answer. You continue the journal for five years, and you get to see how your answers evolve each year! I think that it's such a cool journal, and it literally takes five minutes of your day. I've had so much fun answering each day's question, and it's going to be so much fun to look back over it in a few years! It's such a great way to record life.





I absolutely love this journal! You only have to do it once a week, and the prompts are really great. Plus, they're LISTS!! I adore making lists. I'm kind of an OCD list maker, I make lists about everything. So a journal full of lists is absolutely perfect for me. Plus, can we just appreciate how adorable this book is? I love the cover, and each page has cute little sketches on it. Can't get enough of this book!

These journals are both so much fun! I definitely recommend them to use this year. Do you have any fun journaling ideas? Leave them in the comments below!!

  1. Oh I am SOOO jealous of these journals :) Journals like those are definitely eye candy to me!
    I love journaling too, but a lot of times I just forget. I try to write down any important events that occurred during the week every weekend, but sometimes it just doesn't happen XD

    1. Hahaha!! I know, I was absolutely crushed when I learned that he died. I don't really feel equipped to write a tribute post for him, because I haven't seen the Harry Potter movies, but I might include a little something in a post soon:)
