Here’s why a journal is the perfect gift for the busy person in your life

Journaling is a practical way to prioritise what’s important and take time for reflection, something that’s ever more important in our hectic lives.

So many of us seem to be constantly busy, running from one commitment to another, switching between screens, and never feeling like we have enough time. With the many demands of everyday life, and our increasing reliance on our always-on technology, our attention is pulled in multiple directions, and it can feel like you never get a chance to take a breath.

Irish company Mojo & Co has created a range of journals to help you take time for yourself, achieve your goals and live with intention. 

Positivity & Wellness Journal, €32.95

For those that like to take things day by day, their Positivity & Wellness journals combine a planner for your week, alongside prompts to help you plan and reflect. It’s a simple but effective approach, combining the practicalities of your everyday life while keeping larger goals in mind, and providing a space to express gratitude.

By combining the power of gratitude and positive thinking, this undated journal allows you to take control, focusing the mind and embracing a positive mindset using gentle prompts throughout.

People who prefer a free-flowing approach to journaling will love the Brain Dump journal. It provides a less structured place for you to declutter your mind, taking all of the thoughts, ideas, worries and things you’ve pushed to the back of your mind, out of your head and put them down on paper. 

Brain Dump Journal, €32.95

This is combined with elements like weekly planners and goal setting, as well as prompts to get your journaling flowing. Processing your thoughts in this way helps to boost productivity in all areas of your life, and can improve your mood and mental health, help with goal setting and achievement, give more space for creativity, and provide better sleep.

Each journal is also full of motivational quotes to inspire, and comes in a range of stylish colours, with a soft-touch vegan leather cover. Plus, they can be personalised with your initials. 

To get the most out of your journal, Mojo & Co recommends making them a part of your daily routine. Try reaching for your smartphone or device less and your journal more. Pick it up early in the morning or last thing at night, when you have a few moments to reflect and project.
