It’s a new year—a perfect time to launch new practices and be more intentional about old ones. Journaling is a popular pastime that can be part of a manifestation ritual, a way to clear your head and express your feelings, a fun log of everything that happens over the course of a year, or simply a way to stay organized. Here, we bring you comfortable writing tools, an eco-friendly option to the standard notebook, and a way to keep your writing space clutter-free.  Plus, you’ll find a bonus energy booster to fuel your creativity.
