If you're anything like us, the thought of turning to a blank page in a diary as you collapse into bed just seems like more hard work at the end of a long, demanding day
Which is why we're loving the premier range of journals from Inspirational Diaries - a weighty tome (this is one for the bedside table rather than your handbag) full of prompts that encourage you to quickly bullet point your day in a way that makes it virtually impossible to moan, vent, complain or despair about whatever's irked you since waking.
What you end up penning is a positive spin on even the most challenging day; aside from the daily questionnaire (which includes headers like 'How did I make a difference in another person's life today?' and 'How can I improve my day tomorrow?') and the inspirational quotes dotted around the pages, it's virtually impossible (trust us, we tried) to write negative thoughts on canary yellow and fuchsia pages.
This is the ultimate heartfelt diary that encourages you to end each day on a high note, self-reflective and meditative without being too hippy or serious
You needn't write more than a sentence for each of the five daily prompts, but by the end of the year your reflections will amount to a personal record of where you've been going right.
We're buying one for everyone this Christmas.
