Studies confirm what avid journalers have always known: that writing about difficult experience helps the writer move forward. Many self-help books recommend journaling as a way to express emotions and explore past hurts — as well as to simply get organized, make plans, and set goals — yet few of the books offer advice in how to do it. In Journalution, Sandy Grason combine ...more

This book started out fairly good, but its focus on “awaken your inner voice”, “healing your life”, “manifesting your dreams” just didn’t seem very interesting to me, or at least where I am in my own life right now. I don’t need to work on healing and I do listen to my inner voice an awful lot by way writing in my journal. As for manifesting my dreams, that is easier said than done because there are a lot of obstacles to my achieving my dreams are beyond my control. That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t ...more
This is my first read about journaling, so I was skeptical about what this book could offer me. I am glad I ignored my doubt and bought it. As someone who has wanted to journal but has difficultly keeping one, this book provided some great wisdom, and because of the amazing prompts, I know I will be able to write for hours. Although the book started off strong, I felt that it became too new agey towards the end. For me, the beginning and prompts outweigh the new age volcano that erupted in the l ...more
Getting back into more journaling lately, did creative writing in August and September is my journaling month. Only missed two days so far, even if they are quick one page before I head to bed, try to put something down at least. In order to expand more in my journaling I thoughts I would read a few books about journaling.

The first I pick up is Journalution by Sandy Grason. What drew me to the book was the second part of the title; Journaling to Awaken Your Inner Voice, Heal Your Life and Manif
I've been stingy with 5 stars lately, but in it's class, it was amazing!!! I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO CREATE THE LIFE THEY IMAGINE. I've been a self-help-book junky for years--this book is different. Go see her webste. Look for her on youtube--the 100 Day Reality Challenge, and
I've loved everything I've seen of hers. She's genuine and funny.
Here are a few quotes from her website/book.
"Every person's truth is different. That is why you will not find
I read through this book relatively quickly, though that's not entirely because I loved it so much that I couldn't put it down.

I have been journaling since I was a kid and over the past couple of years I've done it more sporadically then I have in the past. I wanted to learn how to become that person who gains enlightenment through their writing and honestly, because the thought of my future children reading through my journals and seeing it was nothing but endless entries of "This is what I di
This book is full of positive, encouraging words about how to improve your life through journaling, as well as many writing prompts. It's divided into sections - the first two or three are for a beginning journaler and focus on getting started. Thereafter the sections are based around themes - getting to know yourself, cleansing the past, major life transitions, etc...

I found the first quarter of this book too remedial for me, but I really got into it towards the middle and spent some time with
Sometimes, it’s very hard to gain perspective during a difficult time. We see ourselves reacting in an unhealthy way or repeating the same mistakes like some sort of broken machine. Yet, we just can’t seem to figure out why we such things or how to break the cycle.

Journaling helps. It’s very interesting. You can go for years repeating the same cycle and not see it but spend two weeks writing on a single fixated subject and suddenly you find that you can’t deny these issues anymore. Everything i

This is the most useful journaling book and the least fluffy. The healing-your-life language is sort of eh--not my bag, but I can see how it would be useful. The prompts are pretty decent, though, and useful for my own journaling.

Nice book with some intriguing journaling exercises. She has some wonderful ideas to get the mind going and kickstart your creativity. I was looking for creative writing ideas, but I found these geared more for people who wanted clarity and peace in their lives. Some of the ideas may be a little woo-woo for certain people, but I found it to be a positive and peaceful book.
Great book to get you started in journaling. Lots of great prompts to use either as an individual or as part of a group.
Okay, the title and some of her language are exceptionally self-helpish, but don't be turned off by that; there are some excellent prompts in here as well as motivating and specific advice on how to use journaling to find clarity and work through stuff. I'd even recommend it just for the prompts, if you're not in the mood to read the rest of the text.
This book (Dutch version) was on my shelves for such a long period of time already. I received it as a present from a co-worker years ago. In the beginning of this year I decided to tackle this book this year as part of a reading challenge. more
Had a blast working through this and rediscovering myself through my very first journal. I have highlighted everything I want to revisit and I'm sure I will re-read, if not all, parts of this book again and again as I grow as a journaler.
This is another great book about journaling if your primary goal for journaling is self healing/self help. If however you want to know more about various types of writing and writing exercises this may not be what you are looking for.

I loved this book!! I borrowed it from the library, and I will have to buy it. I can't wait to try some of the exercises.
Really good book to help focus your journaling. There are some great prompts here!
Great ideas on how to start journaling.
