Ok, that's all great, but how do you get started? Here are five awesome tips:

- Set aside time: Choose a time each day or week to journal. Consistency is key, so make it a habit to journal at the same time each day or week.
- Find a comfortable and quiet space: Create a peaceful and comfortable environment to journal in, make a space that is your sanctuary!
- Use prompts: If you’re struggling to get started, try using prompts, such as “What am I grateful for today?” or “What are my thoughts on…” Our journals make this super easy!
- Be honest and authentic: Write down your true thoughts and feelings, even if they are negative or difficult. This is your private space, and it’s important to be honest and authentic.
- Don’t judge yourself: Remember that journaling is a tool for self-reflection and growth, not a place for self-criticism. It is super important to be kind and non-judgmental with yourself as you write.
