The Easter weekend is upon us, so why not take time to check in and practice self-care. As much as spa days at home have been recommended to death, journaling is an excellent way to take care of your mental health.
At first, journaling may seem like a task if you’ve not mastered a journaling style. You can experiment between wide notebooks for doodling or tiny ones meant only for writing to see what works for you. After all, it would be great to walk down memory lane years later.
Once you’ve established your book of preference, it’s time to write away. Why not make it a meditation session, too, by whipping up your favorite cup of tea and playing relaxing jams. Check in with yourself this weekend and consider using these ten notebooks to journal your thoughts.
