What do you journal about?

Clara P.
I usually combine my comment about the quote or message with whatever I am feeling about the day. I try to make the journaling process act as both a reflection and diary all rolled into one.
Nora E.
Sometimes it’s hard for me to journal, but if I have apps (which I do) with reminders, it makes it easier to journal. I will usually follow a journal prompt. I also find it easy to journal when I am angry. I like doing that so I don’t say something regrettable. It helps me to look at what I’m actually feeling and figure out if it’s reasonable. Example being- someone left me on read for over two hours and I started freaking out and thinking that they hate me and find me annoying. When I started journaling, I looked at the situation and said, “They don’t hate me, they are extremely busy preparing for a mission trip. They love me a ton and it’s going to be ok.” Journaling helps me look at things objectively. I also love journaling to record happy moments and special things. Then down the years I can look back and say, “You remember that?”
Megan Y.
I journal about how I feel , what I’m grateful about, what’s working and what’s not pain confusion excitement happiness relationship emotions all that
Milana N.
Do you mean, what are you supposed to journal about? Or what do you journal about? I’ll answer as if it’s “What do you journal about?” Yesterday, when I first journaled, I didn’t understand what to do. I deleted the quote and I think I wrote that I didn’t understand. Today when I journaled, I wrote about how the quote reminded me of when I journaled yesterday, how remembering journaling yesterday made me feel, that I understood how to journal now because of that, and that I thought kind words to myself like today’s quote.
Gracie P.
whatever really. it could be what it’s asking, like “how does water make you feel” and i just you know say how water makes me feel, or i ignore it and write what’s been on my mind lately, because i can’t say it to anyway else. i’m tired of writing it in my notes or stuff like that. so i wrote it in my journaling thing here. usually they are pretty long answers and while i am writing them there’s a lot of tears.
Sofie N.
I journal about my thoughts and really anything that comes to mind. I try to think of my true feelings and inner thoughts! 🙂
Michelle N.
I most journal about my current state of mind and my current situation with how things are going and where I am in life. Then I try to see a way of making lemonade with the lemons life has thrown my way. Learning not to sweat the small stuff is easier said than done with me so, writing it all down on paper gives me a handle over my reaction and helps me to process things easily.
Nachiketa P.
I write about the tasks I achieved, the conversation I’m having with people and just immediate things that are on my mind.
Maria E.
i journal daily about the things i've done recently and am going to do that align with my highest self and my goals and i also include things already in my life that i am grateful for
Hsu R.
My goals, 3 things I am grateful for, 3 things I want to focus today, daily activities log, the best thing that happened today.
Kody O.
Since its in the morning, I generally write about whatever is on my mind, which is usually what I'm going to be doing that day
Nicole T.
I journal about what I did during the day, my accomplishments. I try to do it also in italian because I’m learning it rn
Gabriel S.
I like to jornal about my life, I also like to jornal positive thoughts and quotes.Its never the same,but as long as it helps me I love it. If I don't write it down I'll forget about it and memories are way too important
to me 😊
Jj F.
I journal about my feelings and how my day went like I’m venting all my emotions of the day like I’m laying down all my burdens and I usually feel better after I do so😊
Jes S F.
I usually journal in the following categories:
1. Gratitude
2. Affirmations
3. Empowering questions
4. My priorities
Christina E.
i wrote about how i feel motivated and how i am tired of being lazy, so i want to change things in my life and change the view of how i see life:)
also a journal question -what am i most proud?
my answer is: i am most proud of me and my friend that we made a kinda diffucult exam and we got on a school that we wanted:)
Shenel B.
I find different boosting journal prompts from Pinterest and pic one of those to write about everyday unless I’ve had a bad day I want to write about or a really good day I want to write about
Tammy I.
I have several different journals: prompts, yoga, free writing, meditation, gratitude. Throughout the day, my thoughts can race or a situation will arise that just putting pen to paper helps.
Miyshael Y.
Mostly about my day, sometimes my emotions, really about life in general. It's great to have somewhere to dump everything from the day and from the beginning of the day too. I practice writing in my journal about how the day has started and what I hope to achieve then at the end of the day what happened and what I did achieve. It's good to write three things you appreciate that happened in the day too. Good luck with your journalling!
Madeleine J.
I spend most of my time at college so I write my academic goals and how to plan my schedule how to stay motivated during college and how to balance between my social life and college life.
Samira X.
I usually journal about the daily quote on the app and what it means in my life. Other great things to journal about are: things you are great full for, hardships you overcame, positive things about yourself, things you are looking forward to, hopes & goals, How your day has been or exciting things happening in your day, etc
Gabriel U.
Well it lets me retrospect on the day, face the conversations in my head that I avoid ,feel grateful for all the things that happened, celebrate all the accomplishments of the day also helps me plan for the next day
Ken P.
Anything!! I do a thing called writers notebook which my teacher made us do all the way back in year 7! You just pick up your pen and write whatever comes into your head it can be about your day, your thoughts, your issues, planning for something, a story, a song anything at all!! The only requirement is writing 🥰
Justine Y.
It varies but I always write about my weight, what I eat and how I feel about my body; this is also why I started this app
Sometimes I also write about my relationship or my point of view because it’s always interesting to read again a few times later.
Mastura N.
My plan for the year, my to do list, my budget list, write about what I am feeling today, my future plan, love life, when I overthink etc
Sarina F.
i journal about whatever comes to mind. i use it as my time to just let my mind dump all the junk from my dreams or my anxiety.
Courtney N.
I do something called “morning pages” which is meant to “declutter” your mind to open it up for other things. It comes in handy also for when you don’t know what to journal. An example would be “I’m really thirsty. I think I might make coffee because I want some caffeine this morning. I hope the traffic isn’t bad today. I wonder what to make for breakfast…” etc, so you just keep jotting down everything your thinking and it doesn’t have to really mean anything, just to get your thoughts out.
Tessa O.
Recovery, daily events, struggles, challenges, and changes both external and internal that I notice in my self or in others.
Ross O.
Typically I catalogue the day. Things that are coming up or things that are happening to me. It’s a nice reflection of what happened and it even helps highlights some interesting stories I can tell later. If not then usually just something short and sweet to explain why that entry was so short.
Eliyah N.
Nothing about yourself only what is good for to remind you that all is G-d.
Just as a mirror covered with dust shines brightly after it has been cleaned, in the same way, once an embodied soul has been the true nature of the Self, he becomes complete, fulfilled and free from sorrow.
Kate G.
I usually journal about my day. I journal at night so usually this is my time of reflection. I think about how I can acknowledge the positives and negatives of my day. It is a way that I can release my day off of my mind. I usually focus on what went good, what could have been better, and how can I make tomorrow better.
Manny N.
I journal anything and everything. Usually I start with a feeling. How I am in this moment, how was I moments before, what do I want to be feeling instead. Building on my emotion, I switch gears to events or moments connected to it, or things that I aspire to do based on my mood. Sometimes my brain is too cluttered of a place, and so putting thought and emotion to paper is a good way to de-stress. Capture a moment, work out a problem by writing it out on paper, or just give you a greater sense of productivity to help jumpstart your day.
Kami Z.
Things I’m grateful for, what I’d like to accomplish, questions that I’m asking myself, quotes that have stuck with me, feelings that I need to process before having a productive conversation
Dianne E.
Whom I grateful with, more positivity that happens within a day, my goals, and liitle things that I notice within myself and my dreams.
Anna N.
I've never considered myself good atournalism journaling – but I don't want to skip the task. So I keep it short, focusing on choosing the words to answer the question about the daily quote. I briefly reflect on it and then try to find the best word to describe what it means
Ilhan S.
I write down any dreams I have had that night. I make sure to describe how I felt about thoes Dreams and keep a mood journal.
Isaac C.
I journal about notable life events. What I did well during these events, what I did wrong during these events, how I want to go about things in the future. Moreover, I also journal about how my mood is and goals I have.
Ellen F.
Technically I just journal about what could happen in the day, what has happened and what will happen. I also journal about my progress in life or my height. I write about relationships too.
Dario G.
I answer any form of question that comes into my mind, I answer the prompt in Fabulous, or I’ll just start writing words and go with the flow. Once you start try not to take too many breaks
Harrison Y.
I journal about things I’m grateful for, any plans I might have for the future and also if any feelings or thoughts arise that I feel need unpacking (e.g childhood trauma) I’ll do that too, often using question prompts to get the ball rolling.
Aloys O.
I have two options: a) long one when I just dump my brain for 3 pages or b) short one where I divide the page to four and write down what am I grateful for, planning to do, what worked and why and what didn’t and what can I do about that.
Cassandra Y.
Everything and anything. My mood my day, my procrastination problems which due to this journaling I am now procrastinating way way less. I have only 3 things to get done next week! One online, a drs appointment and my nails need to be filled. I am switching nail techs 💁🏻‍♀️ But just things like that and what I need to get done or what I have done and it makes me feel accomplished and more motivation.
Angela E.
I journal about my thoughts and my emotions I experience throughout the day. I find that it helps a lot to write them down, rather than express them in a violent and unhealthy way.
Jinx N.
I have two separate journals. One for venting, and one for quotes/to-do lists/positive stuff. The reason for this is I can’t have my negative things impacting my positive things. There are many things you can journal about, it’s all up to you and what you’re comfortable with. 🙂
Katy C.
I usually journal about how my day is going or how it went, I’m looking to become more self aware and I feel like journaling is going to help me achieve that goal.
Kyra G.
A bullet journal full of tasks I need to do, stuff I did that day, and my thoughts throughout the day. It also contains a few productivity notes, lists of things I would like to get and some art ideas.
Floyd F.
Usually things that have happened the previous day, expectations I have for today as well as future events that are weighing on my mind. I try to focus on my thoughts and feelings rather than viewing it as an itinerary of sorts. I also like to write in German as to silence the fears of someone reading what I’ve written.
Cyan N.
I don’t really journal much at all. If there is something I’m feeling and I feel like I would feel better if I wrote it down then I journal.
Mitchell E.
Today I wrote what you are worthy of loving my journal isn’t focused on one thing what I write is about the quotes that are giving to me and what I do is I focus on making something beautiful for someone to reflect and a change is going to be worth the wait.
Noemi T.
Della mia vita, dei miei gatti, della scuola, della mia agenda e delle piccole cose che trovi piacevoli, per esempio quando sento cinguettare gli uccellini la mattina
Cupid E.
I journal about what happened that day. Also about stuff that I just need to get out. Lots of things, honestly. Journaling for me is just a way to express my mind and get things out that I can’t keep in. I’m a very secretive and quiet person, so journaling helps so that I don’t explode from everything I hadn’t gotten out.
Marcel X.
I journal about what I have done over the day and basically what is going on in my life currently. I write about my types of moods over the day. I also write down what fitness activities I have done and what I ate.
Ruby J.
What I journal about tends to vary a lot but I try to include things that impacted my mood and health as well as using the time to help clarify what I think and feel about an event that has occurred recently or a prompt.
Emily P.
I journal little reminders to myself. Whether they be insights to my own thinking process and mental health, or encouragements about my progress and creative outlets, I journal to remind myself to things that are important. I journal so I can look back and reminder my validity, and that everything I’m feeling is real and stems from something.
Robert T.
How I feel, what am I thinking, what I believe about what happened, gratitude to Christ, praying to bless those who hurt me, what was or is my intention when feeling a overwhelming emotion (yell, fight, run away, punch, eating).
Mballu N.
Firstly I move I put on a 15
Minute exercise video or dance video something that will get my heart pumping and the feel good chemicals moving. After you have exercised take a nice warm shower dry yourself and lie down and meditate you will feel so good.
Marcia G.
I like to journal about my feelings, that I feel like I can’t express to other people. I am very self-conscious and very shy. So sometimes it’s easier to write things down, then to just say them. I’ve also got into the habit of writing down what I want to happen for myself. Maybe in my mind I believe that it will help me to achieve those goals.
Michelle Z.
I usually journal about how my day went, what i was thinking, my own personal opinions about a topic i have heard or discussions i have encountered. Not everything needs to be announced to the internet because there will most likely be other people pushing their own opinions if they disagree with yours, it inevitably silence your intuition or your inner self from producing a thought unique only to you… most of discussion in this decade lacks a healthy balance of accepting other people's opinions and compromise or agreeing to disagree.
Camila P.
I journal about my day and things that happened surrounding me in a non biased way, then I proceed to go through my feelings and finally end up comparing the two and try and advise myself on what maybe I let get to me and was not that important or perhaps if I thought it was a really bad week and then maybe there were positives there. Always end my journaling with a positive remark on myself
Marion Z.
My feelings, trying to sort out my emotions to get clarity and sometimes realize that the situation is not how I initially interpreted it as
Rainbow Planet N.
I usually journal about my thoughts
My day
I vent whenever I have to
Which is almost everyday but you know it’s alright
I write about how my day has been going, what I’ve been doing the past few hours, how I’m feeling, and it really helps me reflect on my thoughts
Trazon Q.
Most of the time I anime journal. Anime Journaling is putting stickers and writing about a anime character like lida,bakugou,nezuko,eran,mikasa. There are so many anime characters. If you haven't watched a anime you should. Here's some, attack on titan, my hero academia, banana fish, Tokyo gool. Are some
Heather E.
I journal mainly about my emotions, but also memories and just basic daily stuff. I think it's important to keep memories saved somewhere where you can remember and reflect, and for me that's a hard thing to do just in my mind. Journaling calms me down when too emotional and helps me keep my feelings in check.
Giselle P.
Everything. My life, the past, the present, my hopes, my questions…it’s all in what I journal. Journal is huge for me and the time to look inwards has always helped me, mostly que get ti g through tough moments. I share joys that I can look back on and use to push me forward. I am able to learn more about myself. And I can see how I heal from situation to let future me know we can overcome.
Brooklyn F.
i just journal about what's happening in my life and what im stressed about, it's really good to get it off your chest, especially if you have no one to talk to about it
Bridget J.
Well, when I journal I tend to write about what has happened recently. When I write I tend to keep to a format, I draw a box on the side of the page, and the date at the top, outside the box I write about my day and inside the box I draw a daily tarot card and reflect on it.

I hope this helped 🙂

Niete W.
Mostly my thoughts. I’ve been having a relapse with my depression lately. I have no solid support system. I barely voiced out or share my feelings when I’m on the verge of breaking down. Sometimes I long for someone to just ask me how I am, but sadly I barely receive one. I’m dating someone now, but I can’t connect with him emotionally yet. Maybe he’s too detached or maybe I’m too afraid to speak out my mind. It’s hard going through this journey alone. Sometimes I think it’s better if I’m gone. Or maybe it’s for the best if I no longer exist, but I still have this sense of responsibility, this side of me where I don’t want to be a burden to anyone. I just wish—no, I pray that I’d be able to connect with someone in everything. I pray that one day I’d feel okay too, that I’d stop crying over things I can’t control. I just want to be loved and valued. I’m tired of being alone. Is that too much to ask?
Randall U.
Well I reflect on the day and list the pros and cons but also I list my thoughts and feelings that happened during the day, it could be thoughts of people or (since I am still in school) about certain subjects that I disliked and what I thought could be better or what I liked and wanted to keep.
Luna I.
i journal about the daily quote usually. reflecting on its meaning for the day behind in the evening. it helps me to apply the lessons directly in my life & start making those connections for future times.
Hyunkyung Y.
Most of the things i write in my journals are things that motivates me. I don’t really write something personal, but i use it to reflect what happened today.
Johnmichael F.
I journal about what I do during the day & night. I journal my emotions, thoughts, & dump any thoughts or worries, or even make a to do list so I don’t have a sense of vague anxiety in me. This helps with me being consciously awake & being in the present moment, aware of everything.
Loli B.
I usually write about what I’m thinking or respond to how I feel after reading a quote. I’m not a very diligent journal writer but I find that it helps me reflect on changes that I’m trying to make and capture thoughts that I’m having about my journey.
Doris U.
I will typically journal on a paper because I also like to doodle when I journal. I journal my thoughts, what I’m going through, what happen during the day or currently or recently. I’ll journal everything: my goals, how i want to change as a person in a better and more positive way.
Annelize F.
I journal at times about what happened in my life, like a specific incident or situation. Other times I journal about how the day was, like it was a good day, or I was tired etc. Other times just dome things to be grateful for. Sometimes just an emoji.
Ashanti J.
I journal 📓 about being a better me. Self love is what I’m currently journaling about. Self neglect and self negative talk is not good and you will live a unhappy and unhealthy life is you keep it up. Me myself and I were doing both but I’m willing to change that just so I can be happy. I mostly put others before myself and never seemed to have time for myself or enjoyed my own company. That all will change and I will continue on this path for a better future. Thank you for your question.
Noa U.
Everyday I journal what I feel for the day and what I have to do in the day. And then the next day I look back on what I have completed and hopefully I feel a little better especially if my day started off a little rough.
Manon N.
I journal mostly about interesting things that happened that day and things I want to happen and how annoying my enemy was that day.
Frida Z.
Jeg skriver om min dag, også fokuser jeg kun på de gode ting. Jeg skriver også ting som hvor mange prnge jeg har brugt og hvor lang tid jeg sover
Nolhan C.
I like to write about everything that’s had happened to me.
Because I like to look at it later and remember the good or hard times. I also like to write in details so I remember what I was feeling and what was going through my mind
Hans Georg O.
My journaling is thoughtless. I like to take my time and just write whatever comes to my brain whether it’s good or bad. Not gonna lie, it is actually a great way to relieve stress and just makes you feel lighter in a way
Ivana P.
I journal about how I felt and what happened during my day. Also, I write down three things that I am grateful for everyday.
Chiara O.
I journal about how I feel. What my dreams and hopes are. I like to address situations that I feel confident enough in addressing myself.
Dalal N.
Whatever you feel like writing down. Sometimes I don't write about my day, but I draw it out on paper. You can also usr gratitude to write down what you're grateful for that day.
Miya U.
I answer the questions the app asks me. I journal about how I feel and sometimes what I could’ve done better in a situation
Wallace P.
I reflected on how my life has changed over the past year. I concentrated on the positives and what I’m grateful for. I have read many times about streamlining life and I’m finally at a place where I’ve ditched what is no longer serving me and how much more I’m making space for what I want and how more in tune with processing emotions in a great way. Learning to say no has helped! Life is so much more comfortable!
Agathe N.
I write down what's going on in my day, my thoughts, my dreams, I make character sheets of people I know ( loved or not ), I draw emojis at the end of some sentences and I usually illustrate with flowers! 🌺🌹🌼 Good luck with the journaling, it can be time consuming, but it's really fabulous!! ✨
Lylou T.
I journal about my moods. What I eat. How I feel throughout the day. Any thoughts I have. What stresses me out. What I did for myself. What relaxed me today. And other thoughts. Along with certain things I did that day.
Anna G.
I journal about my day to day moments, times I was mindful, and my emotions (positive and negative) throughout the day. this really helps me reflect and think about how to improve the next day.
Nadirot N.
Anything and everything. Anything that comes from your mind, to your shoulder, and down to your hand – write it down. It helps to relax and reflect on life.
Юлиан Рачев N.
Most often, about my day, random thoughts that have came to my mind during the day, or whatever comes to my mind while i am journaling
Ava E.
I journal about many things, some examples are, what happened in my day, what I learned that day, things I need to do, plans for the future, and many more. Journaling helps me tune in with myself.
Christie G.
One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast is 2 boiled eggs(no salt) dipped in Salsa and a piece of turkey Bacon, and a banana.
It is a lean protein breakfast that’ll make you just feel good.
Meg F.
I do a guided gratitude journal to remind myself that I have so much to be grateful for no matter who or what is going on.
Hareini F.
Anything and everything that comes to my mind. Any thought that i like to dump somewhere would definitely go into my journal
Renata I.
I always answer the questions and the journaling depends on the time.

If it’s in the morning I will reflect on how my day is going to be, what are my expectations and how I woke up feeling.

Afternoons are normally when I have something in mind in desperate need to put it on to the paper.

Night times I reflect on my day, how it went and how I feel about it. What I’m glad went well and what I will work on tomorrow to be better.

Sydney A.
I personally would like to get better at journaling then i am now. However in answer to your question, I journal about dreams, thoughts, feelings, anything you think of you can journal. I also think it's important to journal on the days that you may think would be pointless or the days you did nothing as it is still important to get that out and on paper.
Julie F.
Mostly about the events of the day. I do it in bullet points, so I don’t take too long on any one thing. I’ll also include really strong emotions about those events/thoughts and ideas I had. I find that keeping it brief and focused on events/tasks completed gives me an excellent record of time and my accomplishments. Then, when I feel like I’m accomplishing nothing and nothing ever happens to me, I can look back and have simple, recorded proof that those thoughts are incorrect.

On occasion, I’ll write a longer entry that is more centered on venting/working through emotions or a problem. But I don’t do it everyday; only as necessary.

Greta N.
I only journal when I feel like it, I did not try to make it a daily habit because then I will often write the same things and it is not special enough anymore. Due to this, I write in my journal often about new experiences, feelings that hold on to me or angst, worries and the like (writing it down often soothes the feeling). In conclusion, I write when I need it and I write about the things that I feel need to be written down.
F Lix Y.
I journal about my feelings, my day, my future and sometimes the past.

When I’m upset, when I’m really happy and why those things made me feel the way they did.

Sarah N.
I journal about exactly what happened and how I feel about that. Today I wrote this. “I consumed “one glass” of water by drinking three little glasses of water. Even though I broke the task down and achieved it (which is great!) each little glass of water seemed a little bit hard to swallow. We are made of water and it’s essential for our being, so it should be somewhat natural to enjoy drinking it. Having to gulp it down bit by bit made me realise that I need to reconnect and heal my relationship with one of (my) life’s simplest and greatest gifts, water – clean, fresh water.”
And just like that, I can refer back to this healthy logic when I’m struggling! Just literally let the words flow, whatever it is and no matter how silly it may seem 🙂 good luck!
Kelly T.
Your lunchbox by your shoes, or your keys, or something else that you need to take with you every day to work. It doesn’t need to be full. It just needs to be there. When you see the lunchbox you will remember that there is nothing in it and will fill it up and then take it with you on your way to work. Or it can before, with non-perishable items for the day, and then be filled with the other things that need to be on the fridge the night before..
Carl P.
About my day to day basis and what happens along with what im grateful for and to reflect on my feelings and understand them better
Nolan Z.
what I celebrate.
what I'm grateful for.
consider my blessings.
acknowledge the good that comes to me.
I want to appreciate the people who come across my path. There are times I fail to recognize the gifts I'm allowed as they occur.

especially if it's not wrapped
in a package I recognize.

V Lson N.
I tend to journal any negative thoughts and feelings that I may be holding on to so that I have the opportunity to release them in a healthy manner rather than allowing them to release in negative ways. I also find time to journal things I am grateful for.
Alyssa C.
I journal about my thoughts on the current day. I also journal thoughts on the future, but not so much on the past. I try to capture my evening mood and train of thought.
Uwe E.
I journal about anything that comes to mind at that moment. I could be something that happened during that day. My thoughts on something I read or even a story about what happened to me that one time. Journaling to me is a way to express what I am feeling or my thoughts in a particular moment good or bad.
Chochana E.
I journal about what I am thankful for and how my day went, everyday. I try to find positive things every day even when it’s hard. It helps to look on the bright side.
Jessie Q.
normally there’s a quote in fabulous that i reflect on, and then i talk about my day, my achievements, and anything that’s on my mind.
Thomas O.
Eu gosto de escrever sobre o que eu estou sentindo naquele momento. Sobre a minha vida, sobre o que eu quero viver, sobre o que eu posso ou o que eu preciso mudar e sobre o que eu quero
Georgia N.
I usually journal about how I’m feeling mentally especially in lockdown. I get pretty bad anxiety and stress and panic attacks and feel sick (possibly from stress) very often so I usually like to write down how I’m feeling so I can reflect back on my progress and let out what I’m thinking it my head onto the page. This is how I can keep track of the different moods I go through over certain periods of time. I also write down things to remember them when I am an adult so in the future I can like reflect back and see what it was like for me, what was happening, how I felt and what I liked to do at the time.
Sarah O.
i write my to do lists, my ideas into my journal. i also write affirmations, things i’m grateful for, and about my feelings.
i write my poems into my journal too
G Rkan X.
I eat vegetables usually carrots apples and bananas for breakfast. Because i really have a filled up program. You can eat olives and some cheese in a bread if you want to. I dont eat bread in the breakfast because of the carbonhydrate i usually try to eat and vegetables and fruits so i think you can do that too
Karl J Rgen O.
What I’m thinking. I like to tap into a stream of consciousness and let the narrative go where it may. Usually, it’s thoughts that have been weighing on me that conclude in a positive/uplifting way. I generally don’t have a prompt, but am able to write freely for a significant amount of time.
Ana S S.
Well l journal about the ups and downs just think we only live once and it doesn’t last forever so that’s why we should make the most of memories
Kaye N.
I usually journal about my day, the good things mostly and things. I write about my thoughts and reflect on my day, my behavior and my thoughts. I can use this to see my growth through using this app and practicing more mindfulness and meditation.
Nicoline W.
I journal about my goals and what I plan to do for the day. I also journal my own motivational quotes and what emotions I am feeling while journaling.
Caren J.
I think about the question that was posed and answer it as truthfully as possible. I also try and look for scriptures that reinforce the question/quote of the day. And I also make comments on those scriptures. If my husband is around, I have a conversation with him because he helps to draw out some of my thoughts and then I journal those as well.
Frida P.
I journal about how I want my day to go. If I get in my feelings then I journal about it. However I feel it goes in by journal.
Mihaela N.
I have a list where I write in my emotions of the day. It gives me time to reflect on the day I had and think about what activities brought me positive emotions so I can do them more. I also have an eating diary, where I write in every meal and hour of the meal. So I can focus on mindful eating and not just stuffing my face with calories.
Thea E.
Ammm sometimes about how I’m feeling in the morning, and what I felt the day before. I reflect on how I felt yesterday and how I could have done things differently to feel better with myself.
Kristina A.
I usually journal about a few things that happened during my day and special moments I want to higlight and remember. I write about how it affected me and made me feel and I usually end my day off with a quote.
Anita C.
I never really journaled before. I have tried many times to start the habit of journaling but I would always get bored and feel like I am writing the same thing day after day. I am someone who does better with a prompt. Just something to tell me where to begin or some instruction. Then I can just let my mind go. I think I used to get caught up in I have to journal about my feelings (which is important) but when I would write about my feelings or emotions it felt repetitive. Where as with a prompt I can still write about my feelings just by taking the longer way around. In a way the prompts help me discover what I am truly feeling in that moment vs me just trying to say it. I discover them.
Tia N.
So I have a journey where are write down all my notes and studies. I am currently learning Japanese, how to speak the language and write as well. I do this everyday along with going over my other notes in my other journals that are actually school related.

أصير أقوى عنفسي قبل كل إشي، يعني أصير أعمل الأشياء إلّي لازم أعملها ومحتاجة أعملها بدون ما أفكر بالأشياء إلّي حابة ومش حابة أعملها يعني مثلًا أعمل دايت وأنا مهووسة بالأكل أدرس وأنجز وأنا أفتقر للضمير أصلي وألعب رياضة وأنا متكاسلة إنه الكسل بشكل عام ينمحى كلّيًا من حياتي بدي زي بارتنر يساعدني عهي الأشياء ولقيت هالبارتنر هو هاذ الآب💗
الحمدلله ونسأل الله الاستمرار على ما يجب أن نستمر عليه💗

Rasheen S.
My day. My thoughts. My kids.John. My goals. When I was a teenager I only had my journal to tell my real thoughts to my hopes my dreams all the pain I was in. Just everything I also had a fake one for my mom 😆
Aida Lynn E.
I journal about my day. I go to work and document what made me happy and what I did. I usually would like to tell someone face to face about my day but I just write in my journal for now.
Kizzy E.
You can journal about litrelly ANYTHING. Even if it was just an ok day and you had nothing special just say what you did for example you went on a walk or what you had for breakfast or just lay all your feeling of the day no matter what they were- sad, angry even extremely happy! A journal is something to help you with what you need it's called a journel because it helps you to through rough times or happy times or simple said through your journey. Thank you for asking I love you know it. <3
Jasmine J.
I write about everything on my mind and In my heart. I don’t hold back from the pen and paper Because they want and need my truth and I need to release so I have space.
Aalayah Z.
I haven’t made journaling a habit in my lifestyle just yet but whenever I do tend to journal I journal when I have built up emotions when I’m extremely sad or when I’m going through a lot that’s when I decide that OK let me write all this stuff down so that I can look at it all at once examine how I’m feeling get it all out and then find out a way to move forward from how I’m feeling.
Nathaniel O.
I always journal about things on my mind. Ill talk about one thing bothering me and it leads to the next until I have nothing else on my mind. I always use the microphone on my laptop to type instead of typing it myself. That way it feels like I’m talking to someone.
Ivani C.
I journal about my personal reflection on how I’m feeling about my journey. I sometimes lightly scold myself for sleeping in and delaying my routines. At other times, when I actively make an effort, I cheer myself on by reminding myself that the small steps do matter.
Aleeya A.
My journal book mostly used for me to plan out my day and list all my todos☺️☺️I also write special events in it and made my own habit tracker and sleep tracker
Sebastian G.
I journal about self growth, affirmations, reflections, goals, routines. and sometimes if all this doesn’t work for my I draw or paint out all my feelings. Anything that makes me feel productive, safe or helps me recognise what emotions i’m having and allowing myself to feel like i’m allowed to be vulnerable. I also like to reread my old journals because i can see my progress and it’s like looking through a window into your past self, current self or future self’s brain.
Sophie N.
I journal about the months in a year. I basically write down what I did in each month and make it look nice and cute. I love journalism because it helps me relax and helps to serve me a clear mind. I started journaling in August of 2021 and hope to keep journaling for as long as possible.
Charlotte S.
Honestly, I just started journaling and I’m having trouble with consistently journaling but when I do I like to journal about things that make me happy or things I enjoyed that day as well as things I didn’t enjoy. Sometimes I go off of various prompts but I’m still learning myself. <3
Jo N.
I journal after listening to my morning coaching and sometimes about gratitude. I also journal about the quotes I get in my morning routine. I just write what comes to mind. Before using the Fab App I used to journal about negative things all the time, as a kind of dumping ground, but I no longer do this. It’s an awesome experience these days, and the more I do it the more things start to come together for me, in terms of understanding how this all fits into my life. A few days ago I decided to as suggested in Fab and review my journal. It’s like reading a good book. There’s some great stuff in there! But only because I haven’t used it as a dumping ground for negative emotions and thoughts. Thanks for the question. 🤗
Gabby P.
I journal about my to do list for the day, also I write down my long term goals and why I want to achieve them, check in with myself to see if I still have the same drive to achieve these goals that I did before, people change, and so can goals.
Lily N.
I journal about different things. Some times I just write about my day or make a gratitude list. Other times I write about things using journaling prompts such as How are you this morning, how do I want today to go, How can I show love to others, ect.
Baptiste Z.
I journal about everything and nothing at the same time. I just write whatever is on my mind. Sometimes it can be about a situation that happened that day, about what I saw, what I thought, a dream that I dreamt at night, an idea that came to my mind that I would like to inplement. Sometimes it’s just random thoughts that come to mind and don’t make any sense.
Angela P.
Dreams, things I notice, the Love I feel. The thinking that feels like it’s not even mine at times, the thought drops that come out of no where.

It seems like there really is a whirl wind of activity surrounding me. The feeling coming off of it is a lot better than it was. At times, I feel I have many people to thank and other times people to tell to F off, which I bite back, mostly. Awe the beautiful balance of life!

Trinity X.
I journal about my day, how the quote speaks to me, what j in think it means, what I interpret it as, my highlights of the day, some of the best parts, some downsides, what I think about certain things, etc.. Really just anything my mind is set on.
Lindsey N.
Sometimes about my day, little things that make me happy, what I'm grateful for, things I like about me, what I'm looking forward to, and I look up journal prompts to help me on the days I can't think of anything.
Perry F.
Mostly just my feelings. Usually basic things from what happened that day. I’d like to start journaling about deeper feelings.
Lk N.
I usually journal about the things I need to do. So putting things out on paper or writing it out helps me organize my thoughts. I’ll also just write what’s on my mind, it helps me put how I’m feelin into words since I don’t generally have audible dialogue in my own head.
Catalina E.
Personally I try not to push my self too much or make it bigger than it already is if I’m feeling a bit dull I’ll just a few words, normally how I’m feeling at the moment however some other days I’ll have loads of ideas going on in my head so usually I just write whatever thoughts I have especially about how I’m feeling
Timothee E.
I haven’t journaled in so long due to the fact that I’ve never had privacy so it never crossed my mind until now. For now I mostly write affirmations and good notes for me to remember
August W.
I’ll write down any thoughts I had during the day, a small recap of important events that happened and my feelings overall for the day
Ella J.
I normally just journal about my day. I feel like it is a great way to vent if you had a bad day, but it also feels great to write about your day if it was good. You can journal about anything though. Whenever I have something big that is happening, or that I’m excited for, I journal about it. Overall, I feel like journaling is a great way to clear your mind after a long day or to remember great things that are happening.
Kyra G.
I like to Journal my thoughts and what’s going on in my days. If I’m having a good day or a bad day, what happened today or what’s planning to happen in the next couple of days.
Fiona N.
Anything and everything. I mostly write down when I’m anxious or stressed to pinpoint why and tell myself in writing why I shouldn’t be. But I also love my beautiful fountain pen so I write anything that comes to mind just so I can use my pen more!
Ivanete Q.
I write about how I make my day. From " I want to know what can i do for today " to "i can do this and i can't do the other cause something happen or else" . I'm just writing down points that are important and developing them as little as possible to make my writing efficient.
Joless N.
i write a “to do list” about the new habits i’ve introduced in my routine and that i still dont do automatically, i write thoughts about myself and what id like to do to feel better, i write what happened during the day, maybe some reminder, something i could do in my free time, the goals that id like to achieve and anything that helps me keeping a mental balance
Sue N.
I journal sporadically. Sometimes just gluing items from my day too the pages. Sometimes my thoughts about the Bible verses I'm reading. Sometimes my prayers. Sometime my frustrations. Sometimes my joys.
Philip F.
My thoughts and what I want to achieve in my work and personal life. Sometimes it’s easier to know what you want to do by writing everything down rather than keeping it in your head. It can also help put things into perspective as well.
Lara N.
About everything, it depends on the day, sometimes I simply write about my day, other times I focus on what I’m grateful for, or I can journal about my goals for the future or tell about something I have reached and I’m so proud of.
Lila N.
I journal about a number of things. I draw a line graph to track my habits and symptoms. (Mood, anxiety, water, coffee, sleep, etc). I journal my achievements for that day. I journal what I learned that day or any little thoughts/events that stood out to me. And other days I just need to vent on paper. 🙂
Melina Y.
Well it’s not that deep, I just think about the quote of the day and it makes me think. I write down what it means to me.
Tristan S.
Mostly, I like that the app converts my reflections to the daily coaches into entries in a virtual journal in the app itself.
But I’ve also started to write on the notebook. The same for the “to do” lists. I’m writing personal feelings and opinions. Things that I’ve been long developing in my head. Probably I’ll start turning them into a clear plan.
Rachel T.
I usually journal about my ideas and particularly, insights. I also sometimes write whole stories on interesting things that happened that day and haikus on the little moments that I am grateful for.
Megan P.
Literally anything and everything. My journal is really just a stream of consciousness journal. I write what I did that day, how I feel, what I’m worried or excited about. Sometimes I look for prompts and just write about those if I’m feeling stuck. I also do some random art in my journal. It’s not always good, but that’s not the point. My journal is a rule-free zone. I do whatever I want in there. Because of that, I can really let go of my perfectionism and just destress.
Jonathan Z.
So I write about what I feel the quote Fabulous has means. After writing that in fabulous I write affirmations and motivational stuff because that’s how I might feel that day. Or maybe I write about how I’m feeling and release some of that
Paige O.
I usually just write down how I'm feeling at the moment, if anything noteworthy happened that day, what my overall mood has been… etc
Levi Z.
I journal about my feelings. Right now I am a college student that is planning on moving away from my college to do online and pursue a better future. I believe that this gives me the best opportunity to become the man I want to be. I am also scared and Terrified of not knowing my future and not 100% having a plan. For me understanding that someone else is in control and that there is a higher power and giving my life to him is hard at certain times and in this scenario, it is. Journaling has help me express my feelings of how to game plan worries and find patience through struggles so far.
Albino T.
I journal about different things on different days. I find that journaling is about writing what makes you feel better about yourself. You could write about your day, your thoughts and feelings, experiences, or maybe about hopes and dreams. I find that journaling down these things makes my goals more of a reality, and I can find ways to achieve them by looking through my pages of daily life.
Michelle Z.
I would like to start journaling about my feelings throughout the day or the highlights of my day to motivate me on the days that I am down.
Marie W.
I journal about my thoughts, feelings, emotions. What I did in the day and how that affected me both mentally and physically. I also journal about my goals, dreams, aspirations and how much pushing it will take to get me there. Occasionally, I journal about a specific focus – love, money, career – but mostly it's a mix of all.
Elzira Y.
I do a baseline journal of my day – what I did in the morning, afternoon and evening – and how that made me feel – how much enjoyment and achievement I felt from how I spent each segment of my day. I also journal one thing which I am grateful about each day, to make me try and think positively.
Samantha P.
I actually don’t know how to journal, what I do atm is just talk to myself. I talk about how I felt about the things I accomplished that day and I write about the things I want to complete tomorrow.
Th O S.
I want to became an indipendent woman. For that reason I need to change some habits that I have and be more discipline with myself. If I can do all of this staff nothing and nobody can stop me then.
Victoria Y.
I usually journal about my negative and positive feelings, interesting encounters, about learning, also about my future.
Roo N.
It’s about myself. I usually write about my day and what have done throughout the day. I praised myself in a way to motivate myself. I also look at what has worked well and areas in my daily life that needs improvement.
Christal P.
It depends on the day. If I’m stressed, then that’s what I write about. If not, I talk about what I’m doing for the day. Sometimes gratitude or positive thoughts.
Autumn C.
How I felt during the day, or if something happened that I need to get off my chest so I can sleep peacefully I write out my full day good and bad and then wrote what I’m grateful for and my affirmations❤️

Mitchell O.
I️ only started journaling on this app. A lot of what I️ have to say is about being a happy mom or how to be. And being a happy mom means to be mentally happy about life and about myself.
Davidson Warmate N.

Donna E.
I journal about everything and anything. From my plans/goals, struggles on a mental and physical level, my appointments, work, relationships etc

Worood F.
I journal about my day and how I feel throughout the day. My favorite part of the day or any part that I didn’t like. Something new I tried or something interesting that happened. I also just write ideas that come to mind.
Hannah N.
I look at the quote or statement that I am given and I write what it makes me feel or I add on to it or even make it my own words like I used to do in English class. I notice that is better if it becomes a self reflection because then I get my feelings out and learn / change.
Zoe B.
My journal is usually bullet points about my dreams, but the long extensive ones are about my feelings towards situations in my life. Its like having a conversation with my high self
Stacey G.
I usually journal out my ideas thoughts and interesting incidents that happen that day. I also journal my moods throughout the day as well 🙂
Connie P.
Honestly anything that pops right into my head. And it can be anything, and branching of from there wherever my thoughts take me.
Nicol S E.
I usually journal about my progress on any of the objectives I have for myself, that's why I always have a purpose before writing something in my journal, also, I make a comparison between the time that I spent procrastinating and the time I spent being productive, doing it encourages me to do my best on each day and helps me leaving bad habits.
Dalal N.
Achievements even though a small thing like for example walked more than 7 thousand steps. I usually use the journal for the challenges I do on fabulous.
I also have jar I use it to write o good thing happened everyday and write it on a small paper then put it in the jar. I do this to realize that I need to be grateful. And it also helps me to love myself more,changes your mood, just better your mental health.
Vinay O.
The happenings of the day. My thoughts. In total my perception and response towards them. To make progress the next day by removing which response of mine is obstructing it.
Anan V.
I journal about vampire diaries and Harry Potter and stranger things and mostly about books that I like and I also journal about life
Morris Z.
I made my own journal from scrap paper and cardboard. I usually reflect on the previous day and write about it and add drawings. I've also written about plants I have.
Florentine J.
I usually try and do what i call a brain dump. I often have several thoughts running through my head on what I need to do. I tend to spiral into an anxious place if I don't write it down. Brain dumping helps me organize my thoughts do I can both release them, but also make sense of them
Chelsea T.
Usually when I am writing in a personal paper journal, I write about my day so I can remember it. I also write about my emotions and the things I thought but probably didn’t say to them.
Addi Y.
i usually journal about my day, and about how i’ve improved myself over time. it really helps me to evaluate myself and how far i’ve come each and every day, no matter how small the change is.
Maria Theresia T.
I type about my life, my day not only here in the app but a small notebook. I talked about my day feelings if I’m stressed, anything what inspired me what I want in the future. Reading back gives u more energy to know all the things u have overcome, also gives u a remainder of what ur goals are.
Jamaya W.
I journal about mostly life inquiries, but sometimes I like to switch it up and write how I feel about a certain subject. I also write about different quotes, and how I find them helpful.
Nora A.
I journal about the things i have been doing wrong, what motivated me to make a change, how i am sustaining the change, and how i can incorporate that change for a better me. This eventually helps me complete my daily tasks much earlier and in a more better way as i love myself motivated and productive.
Victoria P.
I like to use the journal as time to reflect. I really look at the journal as an introspective question rather than just a question to have an answer if that makes sense. I like to think how the question applies to me, why I’m on this app and how it’ll help me move forward. Be vulnerable and really answer those deeper questions it doesn’t always have to be a long answer but little steps will get you to writing more.
Kendall N.
I journal about quotes that inspire me to better myself each day. Stuff I know I can change and control, and I tell myself to not dwell on thing outside of my control.
Nadia N.
I usually keep a journal to plan out my week or month, but sometimes I’ll use it like a diary where I do a ‘brain dumb’ which is basically when I write down everything that is bothering me or stressing me out or just things that I have to remember.
Victoria E.
I usually journal about my day I like to jot down anything important that happened that day if I’m having something going on I’m stressed about but everyday I write and reflect five bad things about my day that I want to improve tomorrow 10 good things about my day it does not have to be fancy just little moments of peace 5 things I like about my appearance and 5 things I like about my personality 5 things I want to accomplish or get done tomorrow and then 5 things I’m great full for I like to do all of this because it brings positivity to my life and it reminds me I am beautiful in side and out and that I am loved as well as accomplished!
Emily C.
It feels like a load is off my shoulders. It a way of actually seeing my thoughts and better reflect. It’s also a way to say things than I can say out loud. My brain is always thinking, always moving and I haven’t found anyone that can keep up the pace
John F.
I have not tried writing long journal entries. Sounds like doing so is considered a best practice for gaining self-awareness and self-improvement. I can certainly write long-form content. It’s just that using a phone to write long messages is tedious and difficult. So, I could journal about that. Or I could mention my choir, or service projects, or business or personal issues. So, I will pick a topic going forward and try to improve.
Joann J.
I write down one thing that I archived and one thing that I am thankful for.
That way I am aware of what I succeed in ant what I already have.
Maja G.
Just my day to day life. What I did, want I’m doing, and what I want to do in the future, and whatever’s going on in my life and my thoughts and feelings
Jacob N.
I journal about random things that happen in my life, such as a dream journal of sorts to keep track of them. I don’t really journal much, rather, I am recently staring to journal so that I can figure out the root of my problems and why I am not up to par with my health and with my well-being. My goal is to be a better me by the time June 2022 hits the mark, when I graduate from high school.
Sara N.
I’m not to sure what to journal about, i want to get into it to write out how i feel, my thoughts, my hardship, my happiness and pretty much everything that i feel and i feel that need to change within myself and around me 🤍
Molly Z.
I want to journal about my day and what I think throughout it. I want to become aware of my thought patterns so I can ensure that I am thinking positively. I also want to record the moments where I feel grateful and loved so during hard times I can look back and be reminded of the good.
Liva W.
I don’t journal often but I’d like to start. If I do journal it’s about my day or my feelings and emotions or my want and needs. I like to write what I desire for myself in the future or speak on my past and take lessons.
Ariadna Z.
About the things that happens during my day, how people trates me, how my day goes. I use a app it is call Morning, this help me a lot.
Jacob C.
My journal is about making sure I stay on the positive side of my life and not focus on the negative, but I need to let the negative things in my life play their role however that doesn’t mean that they infiltrate my life.
Melika N.
You journal about anything. Any event that had been going on in your life, any thoughts that you have, about your emotions. You can journal about anything that is on your mind and or you find interesting .
Prisila Y.
I journal about my life and how I better try to connect with my emotions on a personal level by identifying and naming them instead of finding a reason to experience it. I try to let the emotion run through me instead of letting it control my mind. When the emotion has passed, I feel better about my handling of it and I am able to feel successful and confident.
Barbara C.
Whatever is in my head at that moment. Whether it's what I dreamt about the night before, something bothering me from earlier in the day or the day before. Or even just what I did or am doing that day. I also write at least five things I'm grateful for each day.

Meriem T.
I write the main events of my day. What I did, where I went, what I ate. I also write about my feelings and emotions during the day and I finish my journal with three things I am grateful about this day.

A journal about my thoughts, feelings, challenges, reflections, experiences, triumphs, failures, mistakes, and the lessons learned. I do this so that I can learn, about myself, heal and grow.
No Lie Y.
I like to follow along with the quotes provided. It helps me focus on something completely different from what I was thinking and just go on a complete tangent. Somehow I end up finding something about myself anyway.
