If you’re here reading this right now, I’m guessing you’re curious about journaling. It’s something you’d like to do, but you’re not sure where to start, or if you’d like it. You may not even know why you should even attempt journaling (hint: there are some pretty awesome health benefits!). But you know that journaling is something that has captured your attention.
Let me ask you:
- Have you wanted to create a journaling routine, but just can’t get started (or stick with it)?
- Does a book filled with blank pages feel overwhelming and uninspiring?
- Are you afraid that you have nothing “good” to write about?
- Do you buy notebook after notebook thinking that *this* will be “the one”?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Heart-Centered Healing: A Journal for the Non-Journaler may be the perfect solution for you!
My Love-Hate Relationship with Journaling
This book developed out of my own love-hate relationship with journaling. For almost my entire life, I have wanted to cultivate a regular journaling routine, but I have never been able to stick with it. I’ve purchased countless journals and notebooks, from fancy to plain, all in the hopes that that next book would be the key to shifting my relationship to journaling.
And yet, journaling eluded me.
I’d write a few thoughts down for a day or two, but then I’d get annoyed and move on. I would become overwhelmed and intimidated by a big blank notebook. I’d find myself straining to write one page of content. In comparison to some, I felt as though my life was rather simple and boring. What on earth do I have to write about?
Even though I struggled with journaling, I had a strong desire to make it a regular part of my life. I felt a call to capture my life in some sort of written form (outside of blog posts). I knew I had to find a way to make journaling comfortable and fun for myself…something that I could stick with for the rest of my life.
The Birth of Something New
One day, I took a blank sketchbook (leftover from art school many moons ago) and just started carrying it with me wherever I went. I would jot down random thoughts, to-do lists, things I wanted to learn or explore, business ideas, or just an a-ha moment that I might have while I was out and about.
I didn’t write page after page of words. I didn’t sit down at a specific time each day to write. Some days I didn’t write anything, I simply sketched or doodled, or wrote down inspiring quotes that I had heard recently. I gave myself specific personal development questions to answer or other fun activities that I had come across. I used colored pens and pencils because color just makes me happier.
Little did I know that this new method of capturing my thoughts, experiences, and dreams helped me sink into a more regular journaling routine. One that allowed me to relax into the process of self-exploration without getting caught up in the fear of pain or perfectionistic tendencies that had long plagued my life.
Gone was the overwhelm of looking at a book full of blank pages. Instead, it was replaced by fun activities that helped get me out of my head and allowed me to grow, even if I wasn’t writing page after page about my life every day.
One day, I realized that if I had struggled with traditional journalling, then I certainly couldn’t be the only one. Many holistic practitioners recommend journaling to their clients and patients as a way to help with the emotional and mental parts of healing. How many people could really benefit from a journaling practice, but felt overwhelmed by it, just like I had?
It was in that moment Heart-Centered Healing: A Journal for the Non-Journaler was born.

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Out of my own necessity, I created a journal that finally makes me want to journal regularly. This became a passion project for me, filled with my heart and soul. And now I would love to share it with you.
In this journal, you will find:
- 260 pages with a beautiful hardcover and metal spiral binding.
- a fun, colorful, whimsical design that will relax and inspire you.
- information about why journaling, gratitude, and meditation are so important to our physical and mental health.

- and for those days where you don’t feel like writing anything (but still want a little quiet time to yourself), coloring pages that will offer a small retreat from your daily life.
What is most important to know is that there is no right or wrong way to use this journal. There are no expectations, no rules, no formal structure. This journal was created for you, my non-journaling friend. It is a way to capture snapshots of your life and learn more about yourself through the power of writing and reflection.
I want nothing else than for you to HAVE FUN with this book. I want the process of journaling and deep exploration of your life to be a fun and uplifting experience.
