Unplug and Journal this Summer!
Looking to get away from your phone and tv screen this summer? Starting a journal can help you relax and enjoy some quality time outside!
How To Begin Journaling:
Your journaling will be most effective if you do it daily for about 20 minutes. Begin anywhere, and forget spelling and punctuation. Privacy is key if you are to write without censor. Write quickly, as this frees your brain from “shoulds” and other blocks to successful journaling. If it helps, pick a theme for the day, week or month (for example, peace of mind, confusion, change or anger). The most important rule of all is that there are no rules!
Our new collection of A5 Notebooks provide a great resource for journaling. View all our styles!
A great idea is to try what’s called the “Five-Minute Journal.” It really only takes about five minutes, and yet it helps you remain present, to focus on your goals, and practice gratitude and positive affirmations. So if you want to try the method out, here are the daily prompts!

Happy summer and journaling!
