If you are like me then you probably have dozens of blank journals laying around. Again if your like me then you probably bought them because they were pretty and not because you had a purpose in mind for them. I have a few blank journals and the options on ways to fill them are endless. It is however sometimes hard to figure out what to use them for. I have to go to YouTube and Pinterest to get ideas on how to fill my journals. So I thought I would share a few ideas I like with you.
Number one is a travel diary. I love the idea of traveling and want to do it very badly. I also love the idea of having travel diary. It can be fun to collect memories and fill the journal with memories. I'm sure there are travel journals/ diaries you can buy but if you make it totally customizable and to your liking.
The next journal idea is an art journal. The art journal can be a scrapbook or a sketch book, or something to just doodle and have fun with and practice your art. I actually have one and use it almost everyday. Mine is a canson mixed media sketch book. Since it is a mixed media journal it means the paper is durable enough for paint, markers and glue. So the possibilities of what I can add to this journal are endless.
Number three is a food journal. Now if you're a foodie then this is perfect for you. A food journal is a place where you can keep some of your favorite recipes. Or if you find a recipe on Pinterest you like an want to try you can add it to the journal too.
Number four is a gratitude journal. A gratitude journal is a place where you can write down all the things you are thankful for. Whether it is something you are grateful that day, month, or year. It's just good for when your having a bad day to help you remember all the good things you have in your life and be grateful for them.
Number five is a quotes journal. If you're like me then you probably look for quotes to put up in your room, or just need a good quote to make you feel good through the day. Over the years I have found many quotes that have become my favorite. So I have a journal where I can write down my absolute favorite quotes.
Number six is the bullet journal. I’m sure a lot of you know what a bullet journal is. But if you don’t, a bullet journal is a one hundred percent personlizable planner. I’ve tried bullet journaling more than once and realized that even though it’s fun to do I’m not that good at it. I need to practice more with it. If you want more information on it you can look it up on like Pinterest or YouTube and you will find all the information you will ever need.
Number seven is a normal diary journal, Some of you might think having a diary is super childish. But, it is good to have a place where you can write down all of your thoughts. A place where you can go to write about your day or to just help you get your thoughts organized.
So there are many ways to fill your journals. The options are endless they can you use to write a story, your personal thoughts, or art. I know I have more journals than I know what to do with. These are only a few ways you can fill your journals but there are so many more. I hope this was helpful or got you inspired to fill your journals and I hope you enjoyed it.
