Plain notebook can become a great journaling tool

Why we love it: It’s so easy! Just grab a piece of paper or a plain notebook, along with the pen, and you are good to go! No rules, no boundaries – you can write freely about anything you want.

It is for you if: You love writing and have no problem expressing your thoughts in writing. Your thoughts flow naturally, and you enjoy documenting them as they come. Or you just want to try journaling and are not ready to invest in a more expensive tool.

Our choice: Any plain notebook will do it, so just get something from Amazon, or use whatever you already have.

Option 2 – Mindfulness journal

JMB Living journal is a wonderful mindfulness tool

Why we love it: When it comes to journaling, sometimes it can be hard to start. You feel like your thoughts are in chaos, and you struggle to write that first sentence. This is where prompted journals can help. They are your guides in this process – they have specific questions, by answering which you become more self aware.

It is for you if: You are really into mindfulness and are ready to invest in a tool that will help you uplift your life further. Or you just don’t know where to begin.

Our choice: We have two favorites here. The first one, The Five Minute Journal, helped Olena Mytruk, our founder, get into journaling in the first place. It’s so easy to use and so inspiring! And it really only takes 5 minutes a day to feel the difference.

And here is our second favorite – JMB Living Journal. If you want to live a joyful, balanced and intentional life – look no further. ?

Option 3 – Digital journal, or journaling mobile app

Why we love it: If you are like us, you are always on the go. And taking a physical journal with you everywhere you go is a luxury that you cannot afford. But your phone is always there in your pocket! Yeah, it’s really hard to beat the convenience that a mobile app offers.

It is for you if: You are a digital person that cannot live without their phone. Or, it is also a great option if you want more than just journaling – for example, with the Breverie app you can also track your goals, habits and routines! No need to have 10 different apps for your personal development anymore, yay!

Our choice: Breverie app, the first all-in-one personal development mobile app created by a woman for women. Breverie app has all the tools you need in order to succeed on your self development journey!


Journaling is extremely powerful and has many benefits. And if you haven’t been able to stick with it, then maybe you just haven’t found the right tool yet. We hope that this blog post will help you do that!
