The beauty of journaling is that there are so many different ways to journal and this week I’ve shared with you a few of the popular journal types to keep. Well, I’m sharing a few more journaling types that you will want to check out.
This is a journal that has a daily page template that you can fill in. If you’re new to journaling, this type of journal is a great place to start because:
- It’s easy to do daily
- No daunting blank page to deal with
- Creates a journaling habit
Whether the journal is about gratitude, manifestation or capturing moments from your day on paper. This type of journaling is a great for new journalers or if you’re looking to try something different.
While a prompted journal and guided journal may feel like the same thing, a prompted journal is one where you have a prompt that you can journal about each day. When I was in elementary and middle school this type of journal style was used in my English classes and of course I loved it.

This type is all about writing what’s on your heart each day. You may only journal for a couple of sentences or journal a full page. There are no rules with this type of journaling and if you’re a regular journaler this style may be one you enjoy. If you’re interested in this style of journaling but a little freaked out about that blank page, start out by writing about your day. From there that blank page will become less and less scary.
If these journal types still don’t strike your fancy, here’s a list of a several more types of journals you can keep.
- Dream Journal– Journal about the dreams you have each night. Yep, write down even those crazy ones too.
- Intention Journal–
- Health and Fitness Journal– if you have a health or fitness goal you would like to reach why not track your progress. Use this type of journal to track meals, workouts, water intake but most of all how you’re feeling and what you’re discovering about yourself through your health and fitness journey.
- Gratitude Journal– each day write down 3 to 10 things you’re grateful for.
- Idea Journal-each morning or night, write down 3 to 5 ideas that have come to your mind. This is a great way to spark creativity and potentially give you a great idea to work on.
- Reading Journal-if you’re a book lover like me, this type of journal would be perfect way to capture your thoughts on the book your reading but to also keep a lit of books you want to read.
- Gardening Journal– if you’re an avid gardener, this is a great journal to keep to track not only your favorite flower, plants etc., but to also write down things you notice from watering schedules that worked best of the intricate details needed to get the best hydrangeas or peonies.
- Meditation Journal– Use this type of journal to write about what your thinking and feeling from your day. This styled journaling can be done at the start of your day or as a part of your evening routine.
As you can see, there are a lot of ways to journal and it’s not limited to just writing how your day went. This is one of the reasons why I love journaling because it truly can be anything you want it to be. What are your favorite types of journals to keep or one you would like to start?
