Journaling for All Ages - 2022 – The Year for You


This week I wrote about my wanting to kick up my journaling. My daughter finished her art journal/memory book and asked for a new one. I was so jealous. Look at the difference between the one she just finished and her new one. The one she uses is Speedball Travelogue. She loves the off-white paper, how nothing (ink, paint, watercolor) bleeds through and just look at that stretch! I cannot tell you how many books have lost pages as the binding got wider.  

Make the most of 2022 by giving back to yourself and cultivating some self-love with the help of a journal (and pen) from online gift emporium, Pen Heaven.

With the new year marking a time of new opportunities and fresh starts, Pen Heaven are encouraging writers of all ages to take up journaling for emotional and mental wellbeing. A traditional technique proven to help quieten the mind and align your thoughts, journaling for just a few minutes a day can help boost your energy and improve your mood. In addition, handwriting can decrease stress levels, reduce anxiety and help you sleep better!

An essential part of your daily routine, Pen Heaven impresses the importance of making time for yourself each day. From setting out personal goals and achievements to noting affirmations and giving thanks, writing in a journal is one of the easiest, yet most positive changes you can make for a calmer, happier you.
