One of the best ways to enhance your mindfulness practice is to keep a mindfulness journal.
This will mean different things to different people, but in general it’s a tool to help ensure you are more mindful throughout your day. You can keep a plain spiral notebook or you can buy a pre-designed journal with prompts, quotes and reminders.
I really like the idea of buying a mindfulness journal because we often struggle to stay accountable and motivated when it comes to journaling. Buying a journal can keep you stay on track and inspired.
Here are some of the best mindfulness journals we’ve come across…check them out for the New Year and start 2020 off on the right mindful track:
The Mindfulness Journal* – This journal provides 365 daily writing prompts divided into 52 weekly mindfulness topics. This gives you seven days to fully immerse yourself in each topic. Also the prompts are unique enough so you’ll never feel bored while journaling.
A Year of Mindfulness: A 52-Week Guided Journal to Cultivate Peace and Presence* – This mindfulness journal provides effective ways to make practicing mindfulness part of your everyday routine so you can reduce negativity and grow your sense of calm.
Good Days Start With Gratitude* – This is a self exploration journal designed to focus on being thankful for what we have, the big things in life, as well as the simple joys. Each well designed weekly spread contains an inspirational quote, space to write 3 things you are thankful for each day of the week, and a weekly checkpoint.
If you start each day by writing down mindful exercises, or three things you are thankful for, or vent your thoughts and worries, you will start the day on a more mindful note.
Do it daily and make it a habit to focus on the present moment and what you are grateful for around you. Grab a copy of one of these for you and for a friend and share the journey together!
