Day by Day, a guided journal from Jess Conte Book Review

About the Book:

Be immersed in the beautiful illustrations, entertaining activities, and writing prompts in this interactive easy-to-use journal by beloved social media influencer, Jess Conte.

Journal at night before you go to sleep or in the morning while drinking a tea or coffee, or any time you want to escape from your everyday and have some “me time.” Jess touches on topics like your bucket list, current style, travel, family, goals, and your daily life. You will be able to create a keepsake that you’ll want to return to day by day.

My Review:

I have been journaling most of my life. I have notebooks filled with life events and my reactions to them. What was missing, however, was a dedicated way to process those events and my reactions. Also, there was no lightness to my journaling. It was all very intense and serious reflection.

Conte sees journaling as “me time” and provides a variety of potential experiences. One can document a day and express gratitude. There is the opportunity to create a little time capsule of favorites, food, music, podcast, book, and much more. Some of her ideas I had not thought of doing. She provides pages on which to sketch, color, create and, my goodness, play. There are even color by number pages and other pages to just color at will. I had no idea there could be such lightness and creativity to journaling.

Still, my favorite pages are those devoted to reflections and growth. There are thoughtful questions for self discovery and ideas for good health and well being. She has ideas for goal setting and crating a vision board. She provides space to record thoughts on family members and friends. I love the idea of thinking about my dream day.

This book has brought my idea of journaling to a whole new level. This is a good book for those new to journaling as you will get lots of ideas to get you going. It's also a good book for those who have been journaling for years. Like me, you will get some imaginative ideas to have your journaling experience be even more exciting and enjoyable.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
