Review on PixieBod Journal
I’ve always wanted to try journaling – you can see piles of notebooks strewn around in my room – but none of them has truly made me start and be consistent. Lists of things to do, things to be grateful for, dreams and goals have been hanging there for months if not years.
For my 2023 resolutions, I’ve been aiming to become more of a wellness person. Affirmations and manifestations – they have always been something I believe may help me feel better on bad days. So, in order to change things up, I’ve chosen to pick up some journals from PixieBod.
The first PixieBod journal I decided to pick up is the Self-Love & Gratitude Journal for Adults. This gratitude journaling reminds me of what is happening right in my life, no matter how big or tiny. There is always something to be grateful for, whether it is something huge like family, a job offer, or acknowledgment at work or at home, or something small like the smell of coffee and the sound of waves, or an exceptionally great hijab day.
I’ve started journaling daily for the past two weeks with PixieBod journal, and I’ve noticed that it has helped me reduce stress and sleep better. I also realised that it educates my mind to focus on the positive aspects of life, which has made me a much better person mentally. I get anxious at times, especially when I think about being perfect and balanced at all times, and this journal has really helped me with that.
I’d love to show you the bits and pieces from the PixieBod journal, but that wouldn’t be a surprise for you. You can click here if you want to see more of it, and even get one for yourself!
I picked up another journal from PixieBod, All The Little Things Minimalist Journal, which I frequently use to journal at night. The contents in this PixieBod journal are more on the lighter side and I feel more calm and at peace when I am about to tuck myself in bed.
This gratitude journal has been quite beneficial to me in terms of cultivating a better mindset. It provides daily questions and plenty of space to ponder, making it simple to develop a regular gratitude practice. I liked how this journal made me realise things I’m grateful for and how my emotions went throughout the day; it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders every night when I finish journalling.
Yet, journaling has not worked flawlessly for me. There are days when I feel completely blank and have no idea how to fill in the holes. While the journal provides tools for cultivating a good mindset, the negative thoughts are still sometimes there. I occasionally ask myself, “Did I do enough for today?” or “Was I productive enough to meet my daily goals?”, those are things I still doubt now and then. Nevertheless, this journal has taught me to take time for myself rather than push myself down the drain.
If you’d like to join me on this journaling journey, you should definitely check out PixieBod journals and select your journal of choice. Being a first-timer, my personal favourite would be the All The Little Things Minimal Journal because I am more of a minimalist gal. I also like that it’s hardback, so I won’t have to worry about it in my overstuffed tote bag.
I realised that since I began journaling, I have started to put my thoughts into action. While you could definitely accomplish this in a blank notebook, something about the gentle advice and reminders on each page of the journals feels like a loving, warm hug in the midst of the mess and confusion.
