Do you journal in the morning or in the evening?

Luisa S.
I do it in the evenings, that’s the time when I feel more inspirated if you can Call it like that, I’m a person who is always on their own world, so for writing in my journal I usually think a lot

Kerryn Ernst Net Au N.
I am only starting journaling since starting the app. At the moment I am thinking on purpose and direction for my day in the morning and connecting my to do’s which I compile the evening before

Luisa S.
I do not journal. I use to but I lost the habit. It's something that happens to me often. I would get into something then stop doing it then I'll never do it again. That's why I'm trying to work on my habits. I hope this helps

Divya F.
It’s more like when u really feel like to journal . Journaling is just a way that helps u reflect ur thoughts & feeling and can also serve as a habit tracker !! By journaling u can know better how u r feeling or what’s bothering you or why u r feeling a certain way . U can journal in the morning to reflect how u r feeling and what good U want to do in the rest of the day . At night u can journal to express how u felt the entire day and what good u did that day !!

Luisa S.
I journal whenever I completely finish a task. With the smaller tasks like drinking water in the morning or eating breakfast, I immediately go in an say “Yes, I did this and I’m proud of myself.” For other tasks such as exercising or homework, sometimes I don’t finish it right away. I personally don’t have time in the morning right now to exercise, so when I do, I journal about it in the afternoon.

Waltrud R.
I do any task in the morning. In the morning I have more energy I’m more focus and more proactive. I wake up early enough to set a good plan and achieve it before I leave to work.

Luisa S.
In the evening. when I journal in the morning it feels like I force my thoughts to come to the surface and it stays in my mind for the whole day and I can't focus. But in the evening I go to sleep right after and it feels lightening.

Adryanna Y.
I prefer to journal in the evening… I’m honestly more of a night person, so this may be why, but out of habit since childhood I tend to work more in the mornings, so I don’t really have much time then. And if I find I’m stuck and don’t know what to write about, I could just write about my day, which isn’t really an option in the mornings (though you could do a dream journal, even though I usually forget what I dreamt of).

Adryanna Y.
Hmmm usually I journal in the evening, as it allows me to recollect my thoughts from the day, and perhaps what I could have done better. To me, I don’t have

Adryanna Y.
It's better to journal in the evening, because you can write what happened in your day and you don't need to speer any details. 🙂

Luisa S.
No, I don't because I don't find time or rather I don't take out ine for journaling but this question made me think that i shloud. It will help in reducing procrastination

Luisa S.
I prefer to journal in the evening, that way I can write down all of the days events and get out all the emotions that I experienced throughout the day. I find journaling a way to express yourself and your thoughts.

Carole Y.
I journal in the morning because when I wake up i tend to feel more better after journaling in the morning because it really starts to wake up my brain and get it going for the day.

Luisa S.
I don't journal a lot but If I do, I do it at night because I have my whole day to write about instead of just the morning.

Sebastian W.
Evening because in the morning I’m too tired to think and in the evening i will probably have more to write and say. Writing at night is even better though.

Isa E.
I usually journal in the evening cause it's after I lived a whole day of emotions and experiences so it's good to write it all down so that the next day I can start as fresh as a lettuce

Luisa S.
In the evening. The morning is my most productive time of the day generally, so I want to spend this on deep work sessions.

Luisa S.
In the evening. I review my day and I rant in case I need to, which helps falling asleep for me. For me my mind is busier in the evening too.

Molly J.
I journal in the morning so I’m not overloaded with whole of my day and the chaos of it but instead just have my genuine peace and thoughts

Gia Z.
Stop going on your phone before bed. Literally keep it out of your room. Make your room a screen free zone 30 mins or an hour before you go to sleep!

Virgil S.
I like to journal in the a.m. because it is when I am thinking the most clearest and can talk about deeper subjects. It also generally helps frame my outlook to positive for the remainder big the day.

D1 N.
I understand not necessarily wanting to eat breakfast every morning I personally don’t enjoy it but even something as small as a smoothie or a piece of fruit, even a little ziplock baggie of trail mix can mean all the difference between you starting your day off with energy and a good attitude and you feeling groggy and irritable until you nourish yourself especially if you like to start your day with a work out, remember your car won’t move with no gas and I imagine it doesn’t go far with half a tank either. I hope that I was able to help and provide some insight for you.

Nicky X.
Both! In the morning I make a list of 3 things I want to accomplish and my thoughts about the upcoming day. In the evening I check off what I completed and decompress.

Gabby O.
I journal on the evening, so I can write about my day and the highlights, but you could do it at any time really! You could also do it in the morning to write your intentions for the day which would be helpful too so honestly either!

Luisa S.
I journal in the morning because this time my story unfolds once again. As I write in my journal at the time, I feel prepared on seizing the day!

Anna C.
I’m finding that in the morning is working better; it helps give me instant focus for my day. I follow a PhD named Benjamin Hardy – he provides a list of 5 questions to reflect on in preparation for a journaling exercise. I’m finding those helpful.

Gra A Q.
Both. I journal, one of the first things once I woke up, everyday in the morning but sometimes, when it was an intense day, I also journal in the evening

Mathilde W.
I think in the morning is best because that’s when all my thoughts are fresh. I also feel like if I journal first thing in the morning then I can avoid going straight to social media.

Luisa S.
I usually write in the morning. With a clear and fresh mind. In the evening i tend to get more anxious, frustrated and sad. Getting things out of my mind in the morning somehow helps to put the “past” behind me and start a new day more easily.

Urbana C.
At the moment I’m taking my pause for a coffee to update the journal in Fabulous. But ideally I would like to do it right after breakfast, just need to get a bit more methodical.

Luisa S.
I journal throughout the day, via some mood and journaling apps. I would like to start a proper handwritten journal and write in the evenings. I would also like to start handwriting a gratitude journal in the mornings.

A N.
I journal at night so that i have the whole day to write about. Morning Journaling is good for recording your sleep and dream patterns.

Victoria E.
I journal in the evening because it is easier for me to reflect on my day and to let my thoughts and whatever is on my mind drift away. I sometimes journal in the morning to set the mood for my day.

Luisa S.
It depends on your energy, if you came from work took a shower but you felt like a leave in the wind, just have some rest, wake up 15 minutes earlier to write your journal. It something you should enjoy, and to rest all the negative that you have. In a nutshell, do your journal whenever you have the time and energy for it.

Caitlin Z.
On Fabulous I journal in the evening because my morning routine already felt a little packed. It helps me to reflect on my day and set my intentions for the next day.

Ross A.
I journal in the morning because I have the most motivation in the morning. If I wait until night I will not remember or have the energy or the stamina to do it.

Amy N.
I personally like to journal in the evening. That way I can write about what went well in the day and what didn’t do I can improve for the next day. Some people like to write in the morning to say what they want to do, write out their dreams etc. sometimes I do a mix of both but it really is up to you and whatever works best for you

Luisa S.
I journal in the evening, that way i can account for the full day's activities and feelings without making guesses or assumptions.

Perfeito S.
Evening. I like to lay out what my best version of the following day will look like and evaluate what went right and wrong to adjust.

Rana Q.
Whenever i feel the need to ventilate , it is not a must to have journaling on a precise time , it is a rendez-vous with your best self

Luisa S.
I like to journal at both times because in the morning you can reflect on what you thought about in your dreams. I like to do it at night because you can refect on your day.

Tommy O.
It depends on how I’m feeling and what events have occurred the day or days before or events that occurred on that day, I usually right out feelings when I’m feeling not well maybe sad,mad, angry, or mixed emotions of every kind, and also very happy events that have occurred like achieving goals or passing tests or even keeping up with my journal

Emilie Z.
I usually don't journal.
It would be mostly when I'm feeling isolated or it's something important or related to my small business

Akira N.
in the evening so that i can think about my day, and also since at night i’m more comfortable. In the evening you need to rush to get yourself ready and all. at night, just before sleeping so that i’m the most relaxed.

Silke G.
So far i did it on the morning, bc that's when I remembered it. But I should do it in the evening bc as later I do it the as more things can happen.

Mila X.
i have considered journaling in the past but i have never given myself time or had the will to do so. the times i have written things down in a journal i have felt better but i am a perfectionist so i take a lot of time to make sure everything is just right. so for me journaling doesn’t work just as well as i would like it but if you don’t like everything to be exactly right and perfect all the times i would say that journaling is a good idea to talk and express your thoughts without talking to another person about it. in fact just writing this i think i will give it a try again!

Rebecca F.
This honestly depends on why I am journaling. If I am filled with more emotion than I know what to do than I journal in that moment and that often happens in the evening. The morning journal allows me to set intentions. Therefore it really depends on where or why I am journaling.

Rinkika E.
Honestly, I prefer to do it later in the day. That way I can reflect on everything that happened. I am not mentally present in the first hour of being awake, so I can’t do anything in that time frame.

Luisa S.
depends on the day. it’s a good way to start the day and get myself motivated, makes it a good day. it is also good in the evening to reflect on the day and calm myself down to have a good night sleep.

Tatum Q.
I’m a teacher, so I journal more so in the morning when I have my students journal! Every so often I do a second journal at home reflecting on my day!

Ei A.
At night….? I set time to wind down myself so I can have better sleep. I choose the night because it's the end of the day and I'm gonna rest for sure. So, I can check my finished tasks and plan for the next day. This makes me feel it was a meaningful day and tomorrow will be an organized day.

Allie U.
I journal in the evening since it is the end of the day and I can just get my thoughts flowing and use this as a way to relax and clear my head and to reflect on the day.

Luisa S.
I do gratitude journaling in the morning as it makes me realize the things I am blessed to have and give my day a positive start . I also do brain dumping in the evening and let all the thoughts and things and lessons I learned from the day down on paper before going to bed

Izzy B.
I try to journal in the morning, but I wake up in the afternoon so I can't exactly do that. I still try to journal early into my day, but sometimes I get occupied by other stuff. So usually I journal at night, when I have nothing else to do. I just sit alone, listen to some music, and write away.

Victor E.
Evening, so I can reflect on the day, pray, journal, pour out my feelings. I intend to use my journal as a dump so I don’t go to sleep with bottled up feelings and emotions. It helps sooo much.

Luisa S.
No, do you think going to a shrink spending thousands of dollars talking about your feelings is with it? all you need is some time to reflect, meditate, declutter, detoxify and write down your feelings being honest with your self and your good to go.

Natala O.
In the evening because i can write everything that happend trough out the day and reflect maybe sometimes go back trough day and think

Suzy U.
Both. A lot of times was in the morning but sometimes in the mornings i dont want, i do not have time or i think a little and i have not toughts yo write, so in these cases i write in the evenings

Luisa S.
I prefer to journal in the evening. With the mental health disorder I deal with a day can change in a whim. The biggest part of my Journaling is to track those changes to see if there is something consistently triggering them. I cant do this before I've made it through my day. I do however want to start Journaling my dreams in the morning as well

Brittany X.
Normally both. I start with a short writing about my goals for the day and writing out a to-do list. Then in the evening, I reflect on the day and my goals. I think the evening is a good time to journal because it always you to express your emotions about the day, and then allows you to sleep more peacefully.

Zarmala A.
I journal in the morning because it’s when I have my most energy and fits nicely into my commute; it also sets me up nicely into a positive mood for the day as usually before work is when I need my biggest motivation boost.

Silvestre Z.
I journal in the morning to set goals for the day or to reflect on how I feel first thing in the morning. But I also journal at night to reflect on the day I just had.

Caroline P.
More often I journal at night. I have my journals ready for me next to my bed where I write down my accomplishments from the day and what I’m grateful for that day. I’ve been enjoying journaling in the morning lately especially after a meditation so I try to journal morning and night or at least one session a day.

Michelle N.
Yes I do! The first thing I do in the morning when I wake up is journaling about gratitude. And when I go to bed I refelect on what I did that day and how I felt. That way I can process my emotions, even the bad ones 🙂

Bolu S.
I journal in the evening to reflect on the day and finalise on the things I’m grateful for during the day as well as observations I’ve made during the day. I try to make affirmations in the morning to be positive and think of the good that can happen and then use the evening to compare and reflect. It’s a process I try to work on all day to be in the moment

Luisa S.
I don't journal most of the time but I think it is better for me to do it in the evening, as I like to reflect on the events I faced during the day and put some directions or an advice for myself regarding the event

Roy J.
Alla mattina, ovviamente appena finisco di fare tutto lo vado a segnare. anche perché l'app chiede di segnare le cose tutte insieme

Luisa S.
I usually journal in the evening, also because you can write about the day, what did you do and think and have reflections.

Andrea P.
I don't journal at all. I tried it but it didn't give me anything. Or maybe I should say that I don't journal regularly. Because I do sometimes draw what happened or save someone's quote and then I read it after a while. It gives me so much more when I write down something super intense or draw like a fun part of my day, then just scribbling something everyday, just to have written something down. However I hope that one day, maybe I will be able to keep a daily journal. Because once a person has something happening in their life.. and it's not just a big mush, it can be quite freeing.

Lori U.
It depends on the day and the question. I do not journal on my own. Starting this program I do enjoy reflecting in the morning. Sometimes before my littles wake up or after school drop off.

Chesleigh T.
I usually journal in the morning, becuase that is when I have the most time for myself and my thoughts. I feel like when using Fabulous in the morning, it helps me start the day strong.

Bessie Y.
It depends on how much time I have, I might even journal a few times a day! I'm still trying to find which platform I like to journal in, but u fine myself having a few places digitally and physically.

Seth Q.
Hello. I prefer to write in my journal in the morning.I do prefer it this way because I do have more time (since I wake up at 4 am) to sort out things, to relax and it also helps me to do my TO DO list if it is necesary. Sometimes, if i do not have the time to do it in the morning (i have a four month old baby) then i just simply write in the evening when my child is asleep. Sometimes (not often) I am really tired so i do not journal, but that is rare. I try to do the plan for the day in a way that i can do everything or at least most of the things that i want to do or things that need to be done. Good luck

Luisa S.
I journal in the evening because there's no one that can interrupt me and I can write my worries in order to get rid of my anxiety so I can fall asleep faster

Karla F.
A journal both in the morning and in the evening. It gives me time to tell myself and the universe so I’m thankful for each day in the morning and also to review my day and talk about what went well and what great things happened to me in the evening.
Journaling twice a day gives me a more complete view of my mindset and how I view the day.

Itzcalli I.
I journal in the evening, it’s when I have the most time to do it, however, if I have time in the morning I’ll do it then, or I’ll do it whenever I feel like it 🙂

Gia Z.
I used to journal at night because I want to summarize my day what was really happening, what I do, what I was upset about and what makes me happy.

Luisa S.
I journal in the evening because I think that is where I write how I feel or how my day is going, and also what I look forward to for the rest of the day.

Laurie W.
I write in the evening. I list three things I am grateful for from the day as part of my evening routine and write in my journal to take stock do the day and clear my thoughts before bed.

Cassy E.
In the evening, because in this way I can sum up all that has happened during the day. Think about it for a minute – why should I write my diary in the morning when I still have a whole day to make the fullest of?

Luisa S.
Receiving little wins and small rewards each day will definitely motivate you more than getting big wins that are difficult to achieve

Emil Z.
Honestly, I haven’t journaled in so long. I am now about to start back. But I made a habit when I was to do it at night before I go to bed. And sometimes first thing in the morning after I pray. You just have to make a effort to do it. ❤️

Shelbi N.
I journal first thing in the morning (about my plans for the day, and sometimes I’ll do a prompt in a creative thinking journal/write a poem — I like to get the creativity going really early). I usually take notes throughout the day in my journal so I can keep track of my meetings and whatever to-do items come up. And then I journal again at the end of the day as I try to reflect, set goals, and plan for the rest of the week.

Aniah F.
In the morning, I read the quote and write down what I believe it means. Then in the evening, i wrote down how this affected or fit into a situation that happened in my da.

Irene J.
I tend to journal in the mid afternoon or evening before or after I relax for a little bit while taking a break from my phone

Hanne F.
I rather do it in the evening, since like that it can be more of a reflection of the day. However if you do it in the morning, you are less likely to forget to do it

Ida P.
I sometimes do it in the morning, if i feel the need for it, if i can feel that i have time for it. If not, i will just do it in the evening 🙂

Grace T.
I journal anytime. I try not to restrict my journaling to certain times of the day or put myself on a strict schedule. I just do it whenever. I am really chill about it. I don't really do it every day also just when I remember so I probably not the best person to ask 🐱

A B.
Most times I journal in the evening it lets me reflex on the days highs and lows. If I have a rough day I can try to sort out the issues before sleeping so I have a better nights rest. Many times when I journal in the morning I only focus on the negative and moves me towards not want to leave the house. I hope that helps with your question.

Simone J.
I journal as soon as I wake up in the morning. I use the same prompts most morning to reinstate what goals I’m trying to achieve on a daily basis. This usually takes me about 20 minutes

Dianne N.
i would usually do it on the go. try to do it on the go as often as i can and remember but im starting to realize that is not a good habit i will try to start doing it every evening

Tara Z.
What you want to achieve is always a good topic as you can really set out your day and be ready for it. If you’re really stuck you can write about things that you are grateful for. Hope this helped 🙂

Maegan U.
I journal whenever it feels right with the heart. Morning time journaling allows me to mentally prepare myself for the day, and allows me to set my intentions. Whereas night journaling includes the reflection of my day, where I felt I could have improved with myself.

Karina Z.
I journal in the evening to document how I've felt that day and because everyone is asleep and it's peace and quiet for me to turn to introspection. Maybe other people ate able to take time for themselves in the morning, but I am naturally that type of person. Also I don't know what I would write about in the morning.

Isidoro E.
I don’t usually journal but when i feel like writing something down i don’t fix a certain time, i just do it when i feel like it.

Luisa S.
Neither. Id like to start with journaling in the morning. Setting intention and make a to-do list for the day. I can combine this with breakfast☆

Nick T.
I journal on Fabulous in the morning because they give me nice motivational quotes to look at. I also find that I like to write down my thoughts and feelings throughout the day or in the evening if I am upset or can’t stop thinking about something.

Sophie N.
I personally do both. I normally journal my thoughts in the morning and I journal what happened durning the day before I go to bed.

Adryanna Y.
For me i do not get enough time in the morning due to late sleeping habits so therefore in the evening or night when no one is around to bother me….it is the best time to journal.

Mona O.
I journal in the morning regularly, almost every day. I got into the practice of morning pages a couple years ago while I was reading “the Artists way”. This practice helps nurture creativity and focus. If I have a lot on my mind sometimes I will journal in the evening.

Duane C.
Hey,stranger!I like writing in my journal in the morning because I feel that this way my day will be amazing
Sometimes I write in my journal in the evening, but I like better in the morning. Good luck on your journey!

Lo C Z.
I like journaling in the evening. I find I have more time then, and I love to reflect on the day I had to motivate myself for tomorrow. It helps me be grateful after I have had the experiences of the day. I find reflecting more healing rather than imagining because it helps me to be present over productive because life is not always a to-do list.

Lea E.
A great breakfast.
Hmmmm..
I'm currently a 2nd year medical student in Nigeria so I often go for really long hours having classes. I'm not a big fan of coffee so a power boost of caffeine is to a large extent out of the picture as sugar and sugary foods should be taken in moderation. All that being said a great and in fact perfect breakfast for me should be one that can carry me for longer so I don't get hungry as fast but also not make me too full, bloated and sleepy a short while after eating.
I'd rather have a meal with as much of the classes of food as possible than one with less. So a perfect breakfast would have a little bit of things from here, and a little bit of things from there (I'm speaking of classes of food and other nutrients; especially from proteins. An example of said meal would be boiled unripe plantains with eggs fried with tomatoes and fish.
Another option would be jollof rice, vegetables with hard boiled eggs, meat and fish or even steamed bean pudding (moi moi), pap (corn porridge) with milk and (or) honey. You can top all these off with avocados and fruits.

Luisa S.
Both. Starting in the first evening, looking at my calendar of the next day to think of any task that I need to do. Writing down and scheduling it.
Then, in the next morning, early and before reading any e-mail and before starting to work, I journal the day.
Along the day, the alarms I scheduled the day before remember me to stop and do the important tasks I need to complete.
In the evening, I journal how the day was. And after that, I look at my calendar and plan the next day.
This is more simple to do after you start, because it just takes 5 min in the evening and 10 min in the morning.
And life turns out to be what you want! Really great insights from journaling.

Luisa S.
I typically don't Journal at any specific time of the day or night. However when I Journal it's when I have something on my mind. It could be a voice memo on my phone during the day, or something in my notes app on my phone. Or actual writing in a journal

Adryanna Y.
I only have my anime journal,so I journal mostly in the morning when I have the energy for it.But soemtimes when I dont have to do anything for school I like to journal in the evening :)❤

Luisa S.
I'd prefer the evening cause in the morning there's not that much to journal about. I mean come on you just woke up, I do evening cause you can reflect about your entire day and there's more to reflect about as well.

Elle F.
I honestly like doing both. I like to use the mornings to set intentions and document how I feel waking up. I’ll set goals and i feel like it wakes me up. I also like to journal in the evening to reflect on my day and how I feel in the moment.

Adryanna Y.
I do my journal in the morning. I try to do it for 8 o'clock. But sometimes I haven't got enough routine and sometimes I have to eat at work. But I try to do betjer every day. And every day is a winning when you know where I come from

Adryanna Y.
I do it both of the time, sometimes even in the afternoon and not just in the evening. I prefer to do it more times a day because I can be relaxed and clear minded all the day, In the evening it helps to go to sleep earlier, so it is very helpfull. Sometimes as I mentioned earlier I use it in the afternoon, it helps me to be stressed about online school and to be relaxed all the way untill I finish studying. I hope I could helped:)

Livka N.
I journal on the app fabulous in the morning but after work around 5:00 I do another journal entry about my day and how I felt today.

Victor E.
Well I pray more than I journal which is a little different. It depends why you’re journaling, if you like using it to write down everything on your mind I recommend at night because it helps for stress relief. But if you like to set intentions then maybe you should do it in the morning.

Lucy Q.
It doesn’t really matter when you journal, because they both have their quirks. If I woke up in the morning I might be groggy and tired, but it could be the same case at night. So just ask yourself: am I considered an early bird, or a night owl, and you should get your answer easily. I hope this helped!

Barbara P.
if for journaling you mean answering Fabulous' questions, i do it in the morning, if you mean writing thoughts on my actual journal, i do that in the evening before i go to bed 🙂

Katapillar N.
I write A few sentences of my thoughts down in the morning and may add to them all day long off and on, then at the end of the day try to finish filling up the page.

Daisy G.
Somewhere in between I would prefer journaling in the morning or right as I lay down for bed ..: but it never works that way. I just catch the vibe at any time and write.

Layla Y.
I journal in the morning. I used to wake up with chaos in my mind. But when I started journaling there is peace in my mind. I set my intentions of the day and I wrote 3 things I’m grateful for. That’s the short version, when

L Ccio A.
I like the evening, it helps me to look over what I have done that day and write about it. What I can improve on, what I have done.

Sing Y.
Eh it’s best to do it at night before u sleep but I would say evening because writing a journal can calm your mind down and allow you to relax and not worry bout the problems you have

Neko C.
I journal in the morning, that way when I wake up I can plan out what I wanna do, what my goals for the week, month, or year are, and some must do things that I need to get done. I also write down my thoughts so I have room in my brain for school and what I’m thankful for aswell.

Christina X.
I journal in the morning because I like how this App haas a prompt for each day you journal. Although, I can see how journaling at night might be even better because then you can write about what happened in your day and help yourself process everything that happened in the day. I might switch it up from time to time, but will most likely stick with journaling in the morning, so I will be sure to complete it.

Kylian C.
I journal in the evening before I go to sleep! It helps unwind the day and reflect on what matters, also helps me clear my mind for sleep

Gabrielle I.
I typically journal when I can, most recently in the morning after my workout. I have to clam myself down and get into a groove. I do want to start journaling in the evening before bed. I like talking about what I am grateful for!

Emmie C.
I like it better in the morning because it gives me something to think about when I’m eating my breakfast. My body is already woken up, and I use the journal to wake up my mind

Kaitlyn C.
I always journal in the early morning between 3:30 am and 4am. I am trying to make it a habit to journal at the end of the day. As I’ve noticed the times I have at night it helps me clear my mind and I have ultimately slept better because of it.

Evangelino Q.
I write in my journal at the end of the day, that way everything that happened that day I can just dump out into my journal. So my mind is clean and I’m ready to sleep comfortably all night. Hope this helps!

Hannah F.
I personally prefer journaling in the morning. I use it to structure my day, tasks, and events and really enjoy the sense of clarity I have after doing it.

Margret Z.
Personally, i like to write in the evening between 5-6pm when there is the right mood to write down in my journal what i feel and what i've been through lately, connecting with my emotions, as the sun sets.
