We Found A Planner Or Journal For Every Single One Of Your 2021 Manifestations

·6 min read

As tempting as it may be to say, "see you never, 2020," we're taking a moment to reflect on the year — and owning what we learned to do some *serious* manifesting ahead of 2021. One way to make it happen that's not actual witchcraft? Mindful journals that allow you to put thoughts and feelings to paper.

We asked R29 readers to share what their intentions were as we head into 2021 and then compiled the most popular responses into a neat guide of helpful planners. We're ringing in 2021 with a fresh perspective, renewed appreciation, and some dynamite goals and thought-starters that a journal can help capture and catapult into real life. (And trust us, you don't need to be a "planner person" to upgrade from a crowded Notes app on your phone to the IRL thing.)

Whether you want to neutralize negativity vis-à-vis a gratitude practice or want to boost that bank account with healthy money habits, we're kicking things off with a shortlist of healthy manifestations to get the party started. Ahead, find 22 journals that'll inspire you to live your best life.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

<h2>Self-care Mindful Journals</h2> <br>It's a term that you've probably heard more times last year than in your entire life thus far — "self-care." However as much as brands may tell you that self-care is as simple as applying skin care while clad in a fluffy robe, the truth is that self-care looks different for everyone. Tap into your <em>own</em> version of soul-nurturing "happy triggers" (as my therapist affectionately calls things like bike-riding and painting my nails, for me) with a mindful journal that allows you to begin or end any day on a high note.

<h2>Gratitude Journals</h2><br>"I tend to be reactive in my journaling, usually when I'm in a place of frustration rather than gratitude," wrote one R29 reader. "[This year] has reminded me to take the time to write down the good things in my life, and hopefully have that positivity there when I need a reminder." Another bonus to a gratitude practice? "I'm also hoping it can bleed into other areas of my life to increase my overall nature to be more focused on the positive than the things that can or have gone wrong — 2020, am I right?!"
