I am such a huge fan of the new year because it’s a time to start fresh, a time to set new goals for yourself, and a time to buy new journals and planners. Not gonna lie. I’ve already purchased a daily planner, a reading planner, and a guided journal because I can’t get enough of planning, dreaming, and writing about everything going on every year. In all honestly, I’ll probably buy a few more planners off of this list before the day is through. I cannot be stopped.

Guided journals are a wonderful way of tracking your thoughts and goals, especially if you find the blank page a little bit daunting. They can be used for all kinds of things, such as finding gratitude in each day, tracking your wellness, documenting your most valuable memories, and finding space to dream big.

If you’re like me and you love starting off the new year with new guided journals, then I’ve got some great options for you! These journals will help you plan, prepare, record your dreams, set your goals, remember your best moments, treasure the ones you love, and so much more. Get your Etsy and Amazon shopping carts ready because these journals are going to help you have the best 2024 possible.
