Q and A a Day: 5-Year Journal

Once you reached past the age of 16, it becomes more and more difficult to keep a journal. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s promised themselves at New Years to start jotting down my memories in a daily journal. But where to begin? I know my memory is fresh now, but come a few years, and those memories become more and more hazy.

That’s why I love the idea behind this Q & A a Day 5 Year Journal. Instead of just starting with a blank page, each page prompts you with a daily question to get the creative juices flowing.

Questions range from the more aspirational, “If you could travel anywhere tomorrow, where would you go?” to the more reflective, “Today was tough because…”. After you write your response, there’s space for four more answers that you can fill in over the course of 5 years. This is a great gift for anyone beginning a new life phase.

Whether it’s a recent college grad entering the work force, or a new retiree leaving it, it’s great to be able to flip back and see how your answers can change over the years. And the whole thing comes packaged in a beautifully bound volume.

It just goes to show, it’s never too late to start chronicling life’s journeys, even in a simple and quick way.
