Some Of The Best Journals & Planners For Positive Thinking, Mental Health & Wellbeing.
These journals and planners not only allow you to keep your life in order / organize appointments / to do lists etc. But they also encourage you to record your ideas and thoughts and allow for reflection and clarity.
These types of journals promote mindfulness and allow you to capture those brilliant thoughts as soon as they occur. They enable you to break down large goals into small manageable tasks.
Use to monitor your feelings and increase your happiness. Some are focused on mental health while others are focused on physical health and encourage you to keep a food / habit tracker.
Studies show that writing down your thoughts and feelings can relieve stress and anxiety. Writing them down and seeing them in back and white (or rainbow colors if that’s what you’d prefer) helps you to understand them and gain some clarity.
It’s especially helpful to record your thoughts in your planner or journal at night time, this is sometimes known as a ‘brain dump’
Writing down your feelings / tasks before bed helps to clear a space in your mind and allows your brain to switch off ready for sleep. This has been known to help insomnia and can be life changing!
