Journaling Prompts: New Year, New Intentions for 2022

Journaling Prompts: New Year, New Intentions for 2022

At DesignWorks Ink, we recognize the potential of every day and realize that big impact happens over time. We encourage you to grow at your own pace and remind you that no matter the time of year, there is always space to start mindful habits every day. Have compassion for your process and celebrate all of your wonderful little wins! 

Journaling has an incredible amount of benefits, especially for your mental health. Journaling is a great way to manage your emotions and cultivate mindfulness. It’s important to remember that you should write or draw whatever you feel - your journal is meant for free expression, not judgment and perfection. 

We understand that it can be challenging to get started when it comes to journaling for beginners or get stuck in the same routine for longtime keepers. If you are in need of some creative journaling ideas and inspiration, you should check out our Guided Wellness Journals. These hardcover journals feature uplifting covers to keep you in a positive mindset, interior pages filled with prompts and plenty of room to write, alongside a fun colorful gold foil sticker sheet to track progress! The elastic band makes traveling easy, so you can keep up with your practice on the go. 

Our Wellness Journals will help you build a self-care routine by: 

  • Prompting you to celebrate wins - no matter how big or small! 
  • Offering space to let go of what is limiting you
  • Helping you create a practice of honoring your mind, body, and spirit
  • Cultivate a gratitude practice

If you already have a practice that works for you, you can easily find a space to hold your thoughts and feelings in one of our Journals. Whether you like classic lined pages or grid bullet journals, there is something for every personality in our line.

“Keeping a journal helps you create order when your world feels like it’s in chaos. You get to know yourself by revealing your most private fears, thoughts, and feelings. Look at your writing time as personal relaxation time. It's a time when you can de-stress and wind down. Write in a place that's relaxing and soothing, maybe with a cup of tea. Look forward to your journaling time. And know that you're doing something good for your mind and body.” - Journaling for Mental Health
