Here it is The Daily Self Care Journal. I came up with idea for this around the first part of December. I wasn’t sure it would be completed and published in December, but I’m glad it was done for the new year. It’s a perfect way to get the year rolling.
This is not part of the Journaling to Feel Good Series. This is a standalone journal that can be used daily (or a few days a week).
It has six writing prompts each day that doesn’t change, but what does change is the affirmation written across the top of each page. I believe there are eight in total. One for a day, and then it rotates through them again. I find that repetition is always a good thing to help remember things that are important, and I believe these affirmations are really great foundation for a good self-care practice.
I’ve been using this journal for a couple of weeks now ( a proof copy), and I really like it as an addition to my journaling. I don’t use it every morning, but many of them. There are enough pages in this journal for a four month daily writing journal practice.
Here is the official book description…
Self-care is the ultimate expression of love. When we care about how we feel and give attention to ourselves in a regular and positive way, it opens ourselves up to a far richer and fulfilling life. This guided journal has positive affirmations and daily writing prompts to help bring awareness to the self and what is needed to realize our best life.
This journal is available in paperback on Amazon and as a printable on Etsy.
So if you are looking to start up or enhance your self-care for the new year, this is a great way to get that ball rolling!

Here’s my newest journal in the Journaling To Feel Good Series. In This Moment, I Feel… is all about taking time to stop and enjoy the moment.
That has probably been one of the hardest things for me to do is to stay present. I get so busy thinking about the past, or dreaming about the future, I often overlook where I actually am. That’s why I created this topic.
I have been journaling in a proof copy for a little over a month with this one. I don’t use it every day. Maybe three to four times a week, but each time I do, the prompts really help me see what’s around me with fresh eyes, which is quite a lot of fun.
Here is the official book blurb.
When we take the time to be present in the moment, we step out of the constant chatter of our minds to see what really is. We are no longer living in the past, or the future, but in the now, and the now has so many wonderful gifts to offer us. We can also cultivate a deeper awareness of ourselves that can bring positive change to our lives. This guided journal is a great way to step into the moment, and regularly enjoy the here and now.
This is the third book in the series. I feel Peaceful Because… and I Feel Appreciation For… are the first and second book.
And look for two more journals coming out by the end of the month! One more for this series, and another one that’s a stand alone called The Daily Self-Care Journal.
After spending a few months using the writing prompts in this book myself, and making some adjustments, this new guided journal is ready to go!
Appreciation is such an important emotion to build, allowing us to live fuller and happier lives. This guided journal makes it easy to spend a few minutes each day embracing what we already have, so to ready us for far more to come.
To start things off, I created an appreciation affirmation that really resonated with me. Then there are three basic writing prompts to dive into what it is that is appreciated. There is enough pages in this book for three months of daily use.
Below is the offical book blurb.
The more we appreciate, the more we discover that we have to appreciate. It’s a cycle of positivity that can fill our cup up so much that it can truly transform our lives and allow dreams to come true. All it takes is the consistent redirection of focusing on all the good in our life, instead of focusing on the things we don’t have. And that work can be as simply as writing down a few appreciated things each day as regularly as possible. This guided journal is a wonderful first step in that effort to gradually make this positive life change a regular habit.
With this holiday season coming up, I feel Appreciation For… is a great gift to yourself or for someone you know. And if you use it and like it, please post a review on Amazon.
Also, I am in the process of making this journal and its predecessor, I Feel Peaceful because…, available as digital journals. I will make an announcement when they are completed.
I am excited to present another project I have been working on the last few months. Here is I Feel Peaceful Because…, a guided journal created specifically to help those who are interested in reaching for good feelings on a regular basis.
I have been on an intense spiritual journey for a deeper discovery of self the past several years, and one of the themes that has continuously popped up for me is the need to feel good. I believe that when we focus on thoughts, emotions, and situations that feel good, we invite more good feeling thoughts, emotions, and situations.
If we do this consistently, we can significantly change our lives for the better over a relatively short period of time. How long that takes really depends on how often negative thoughts and emotions are exchanged for positive (good feeling) thoughts and emotions.
This journal is a really great step to start doing that. It rotates through fourteen different positive emotions for about a three month period. It begins with a short prompt like I feel peaceful because…, and then it’s up to the user of the journal to fill in the rest.
In this journey of discovering what good feelings already exist and why, many more will be revealed, allowing for a deeper, richer, and more positive life all around.
But don’t take my word for it, if you are looking for something to help give you a positive boost, then try this journal and see how it can work for you.
If you do decide to try it out, please consider leaving a review on Amazon to let me and others know how it worked for you. This is the first book in a series of books I am looking to create, so helpful feedback is welcomed. Thank you in advance!
