Something I am so excited for is to start daily journaling again in 2023. I haven’t journaled consistently for a long time and I am looking forward to having it as part of my daily routine.
Journaling not only has positive physical and mental health benefits, but for me I enjoy creative journaling as part of my self care, it brings me so much joy. I also use stickers and washi tape to design beautiful pages to journal on makes me so happy.
I always find the end of a year and start of a new year, a great time to journal. You are able to reflect on the previous year as well as to learn what you can take forward and what you wish to leave behind. Also, at the start of a new year, answering journal prompts and journaling can give you a sense of direction and clarity. When I journal I not only gain focus and but also explore more on what I want from this new year.
If you are wondering about your intentions and direction for a new year I cannot recommend journaling enough.
Here are 40 journaling prompts for the start of a new year?

There are so many benefits of journaling some include: reduction in stress and anxiety, improves your memory, track your progress and growth, gain self confidence and so much more.
Journaling is a practise of self-care that fits so well into a daily routine. Journaling will be more prevalent in my daily life and routine. Whilst also getting creative with my washi tape and stickers, which always bring me joy.
My Journaling Supplies
For 2023 I am going to start the year off using my new Dingbats* Earth notebook, which is A5 with dot grid pages. In addition, I have brought the clear journal cover from Archer & Olive to keep the journal clean and protected. I will be using a range of washi tape and stickers that will be linked on my Instagram as well as using my Dingbats* fineliner pens. So, I am really excited to start journaling again!
