The Four Components of Journaling: A Two Year Guided Journal

Questions for Life

Journaling is one of my favourite ways to practice self-care and there are lots of different ways you can use your journal, whether this be to relieve stress, express gratitude or to simply reflect on your day. In today’s post I’m going to tell you all about my newest journal ‘Questions For Life’, a two year guided daily journal for international living created by Jessica A.Walsh.

Four Components of Journaling

I have countless journals in my bedroom most of which are simply lined notebooks, as much as I love them they do not provide much guidance. As a result my journals have little organisation and include a variety of thoughts, ideas and to-do lists, which can end up looking a bit messy! ‘Questions for Life however, is perfect for those who like to keep their journal neat and organised, created with the idea to have one journal to capture four components of daily journaling practice:

  • Daily reflection
  • Expressing gratitude
  • Capturing your happiest moments
  • Answering self-discovery questions

Is this Journal Right for me?

‘Questions for life’ is perfect for self-reflection and self-discovery, it’s also a brilliant guide for anyone who is new to journaling. Everyday, simply fill in the date and answer the four thought-provoking questions which vary throughout. This journal will help you get in the habit of slowing down and reflecting on each day, while the questions asked will allow you to get to understand yourself and your goals. Completing the journal takes only five minutes each day.

Thought Provoking Questions

One of my favourite things about ‘Questions for Life’ are the thought provoking questions. Answering these questions can truly make you reflect on your day, your future and your feelings, the questions will make you think twice about how you are spending your time and how you are treating those around you. Which I believe are the kind of questions you want and need inside your journal. I love the questions so much that I thought I would share some of them with you!

  • Did you work towards your goals today?
  • What should you do differently tomorrow?
  • What did you want to be when you grew up?
  • Are you giving your goals the time they deserve?
  • Did you look in the mirror today and like what you saw?
  • Is there a place nearby you want to visit, but haven’t yet?

    Journaling is so much fun! I used to do it when I was a teen. But lately I’ve been trying to start again. This might be a good option for me!

      I hadn’t come across a journal with thought provoking questions before either! They’re real good as you wouldn’t ever think about some of the questions otherwise. Thanks for commenting x

    I love this idea for a journal! I struggle with the same issue of guidance in a basic journal. Guiding questions tease out thoughts that may not otherwise come to the surface during the course of a regular day.

      I completely agree! It gets you thinking about things which you wouldn’t of usually thought or wrote about. Thanks for commenting x
