If you are anything like me, you’ve probably hoarded so many pretty notebooks that you don’t know what to do with them. There are actually many uses you can find for an empty notebook, depending on your interests and your lifestyle.
1. A gratitude journal
Given the fast-paced world we live in nowadays, where we have become accustomed to instant gratification, it’s easy to focus on the negatives and overlook everything that’s going right in our lives. A gratitude journal could go a long way in helping you adopt a more positive mindset.
2. A reading journal
If you’ve also hoarded many books you haven’t even touched yet alongside a notebook, by starting a reading journal you will kill two birds with one stone. You can use it to write down your favorite quotes, details you found interesting about the book, your theories about how the book will progress, and more!
3. A dream journal
Many people love analyzing their dreams and reflecting on their possible meanings. If you happen to be one of these people, why not start keeping a dream journal? Just use a notebook that has been around for a long time! It could aid you in recording your dreams and it might help you notice patterns in your dreams that you might otherwise miss!
4. A planner
This is a great idea for those in need of a tool that will help them stay on track with tasks, be they for school, work, or otherwise. I would recommend a planner to anyone who enjoys making to-do lists! Sometimes it’s easy to forget that you have things to take care of unless they’re right in front of you; this is something a planner can really help you with.
5. A plain old diary
Keeping a personal diary is never a bad idea. It’s like a close friend who will listen to anything you have to say to it! For this reason recording your thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a diary can be great for your personal development, and even for your mental health. You can even add little embellishments like photos, stickers, artwork, or pressed flowers to it, just to make it feel like it’s truly yours.
