Feeling a tad stuck while others are out celebrating their ability to make (and talk about) a mile long New Year’s resolution list? No worries, friend. We’ve pulled together some really inspiring journals to get you fired up for 2018 and help you figure out what your dreams and goals are for the year. Our picks are all about goal setting (and goal getting), self-reflection, self-discovery, creativity and following your dreams. Cheers to you enjoying your journey.
This planner is full of thought-provoking questions like “What are your dreams?” and “What do you want in life?” On each day, there is space to write down goals for the day, inspiring thoughts, exercise, meals, your schedule and to-do’s, plus a place at the bottom to reflect on the day and record good things that happened and what you hope for tomorrow. Even better, it comes in navy, pink and our favorite—mint.

According to Moorea, the Oprah-praised journal is “all about making happiness a practice in your life, unlocking your own tools to help you grasp that ever illusive happiness that is actually already inside of you, waiting to be set free.”
