Journals are a great way to keep your health, tasks, lists, and dates straight.


Journals have become wildly popular via bloggers and famous instagrammers, and honestly, they deserve some attention because journals are a great thing. Although journals can take time to write out, they can tremendously improve your organization as well as help you keep track of your health, appointments, or just a simple grocery list. If you have even considered journaling and are not sure where to start, here are 13 topics to get you started.

Bible verses 

Bible verses that are important to you are a great thing to write down so you can look back and remember what you have been through! Use lots of fonts and colors to make these verses look really good in your journal.

Daily moods

Keeping a graph or chart of your daily moods and fill in the boxes with a red, blue, or yellow pen to depict how you were feeling that day. This technique allows you to look back on a longer period of time and see patterns in your moods.


If you are on a weight-loss or weight-gain journey, a journal is a great way to keep up with your weigh-ins. Find a fun way to write these numbers, maybe make a graph and connect the numbers with lines to see a visual picture of your progress.

Grocery lists 

Big grocery hauls are a breeze with a long list and boxes to check!

Assignment dates 

Writing down major tests, papers, speeches, etc. month by month is a productive way to be able to look at what to prepare for without being overwhelmed.

Class schedules

At the beginning of a semester it is easy to get confused by all the different times. With a spreadsheet and color-coated weeks schedule, it is easy to decipher between different days, buildings, and times.

Books to read/movies to watch/songs to listen to

If you're anything like me, it is easy to hear a song and be like "ooh I need to add that to my playlist" and then twenty minutes later you can't remember the name or tune or any single lyric. By putting songs, books, movies, etc. you need to remember in a journal, it is convenient for when you can't decide what to watch next on Netflix.

Sleeping hours 

Logging the number of hours you sleep will give you a better overall view of your sleep health.

Water intake 

Drawing little cups and coloring them blue after drinking a bottle of water is a super simple way to make sure you are getting an adequate daily intake of water

Meal plans 

Writing down your meals for the week or even fun recipes to try will help keep you on track with your healthy eating habits, and it will help you make a better grocery list.

Steps per day 

If you have a step goal, writing down how many steps you get each day is a fun way to make sure you're hitting the mark.


Knowing when your friends birthdays are can be a tough thing to cram in your brain. Writing them down will ensure you don't forget again this year!


Hair, doctor, dentist, and dermatologist appointments can be overwhelming at times. Making categories of different appointments with the corresponding dates and times will make scheduling and being on time super easy.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.
