About this Daily Journal Template

This daily journal template was designed by Jim Eagar, a member of the Craft Community. It provides a guided morning journaling experience that helps the writer to start the day with gratitude, define their most important tasks for the day, and invites them to write open-endedly about whatever is on their mind. 

What is a Daily Journal?

A daily journal is a type of journaling practice where you can document your feelings, emotions, thoughts and experiences each day. It is often used as a form of self-reflection or meditation where you can gain an understanding of how you are feeling each day. Journaling can help to improve mental clarity, stress relief, and help you to get in touch with your inner self.

The journal also serves as a place to document and reflect on life’s moments, both big and small. You’ll be able to look back and gain insight into how you’ve grown since starting your journaling practice.
