What Makes the Perfect Journal?

Choosing the best journal is a personal choice, that comes down to finding the perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality. The perfect notebook should inspire you to write, offering a paper quality that makes every pen stroke a pleasure. A convenient notebook size is also recommended, and thinking about where you'll most often write is recommended. If you're most likely to sit at a desk and put pen to paper, then an A4 size book could be nice, although these are more bulky for carrying with you as you go about your day. For this reason an A5 journal or A5 notebook strikes the perfect balance between portability and space to write. Whether lined, blank, or dotted, the pages should accommodate your writing style and purpose. 

Other considerations include whether you'd prefer a lined notebook, a blank journal, an eco-friendly journal, a plain colour vs an art journal, a hard cover notebook vs soft cover.

As a team of stationery lovers here at Koh, our goal was to make an artistic journal that's beautiful to use every day whether at home or work. Our Aboriginal notebook range has achieved just that.

How to Choose Your Journalling Style

Choosing between a journal, diary, planner, or even a bullet journal style notebook is totally up to you and what you'd like to achieve. There's no hard and fast rules when it comes to journalling, and your style of journalling is as personal as you are individual. Personalised journals are all about improving your life through writing and organisation, and what that looks like is all about what makes your life better.

Our a5 journals offer flexibility in how they are used thanks to the plentiful space to write, coupled with the inspiring details inside. Not only does the artist cover look stunning, enticing you to use your notebook daily, the internal pages include inspiring quotes and stories along with beautiful artistic detail, making Koh brand journals ideal for reflective writing and creativity. Whether your journalling style is about tracking habits, planning the future, as a way to organise your thoughts, or exploring the past, our range of blank journal notebooks is guaranteed to help you achieve your goals.

What to Write in a Journal

Writing in your journal is personal to you, and you can write about anything that matters to you. Whether you've decided to use your journal as a planner or diary, or as a reflective journal to capture your thoughts, inside you can include daily events, personal reflections, goals, fears, and aspirations. There's no right or wrong way to journal. Other ideas for your new journal include using it to track habits, plan projects, or practice creative writing. If you're looking for direction, try prompts such as "What made me happy today?" or "What challenge did I overcome?" there are lots of online journal prompt websites you can visit to get ideas. 

Don't be intimidated by the fresh new pages within your writing journal. Get creative, add personality, change it up and use your new cute notebook for everything from bucketlist dreams to daily to do tasks and make it all about making your life better. The best journals are ones that you use, and we never want our Aboriginal diary, notebooks and journals to do anything other than inspire you.

How to Begin a Journal

Have you ever opened a new notebook or journal and felt the pressure of a fresh, clean notebook? If you said yes, you aren't alone. Whether you're the jump right in and get scribbling kind, or you like to plan out how you'll use your new notebook, the easiest way to start a journal is just to open it up and start! 

If you're using your new journal for mindfulness or intention setting, some ideas might include using the first page and to introduce yourself and your thoughts or goals, where you currently are in life, and set your intentions for the journal. If your journal is more about tracking your daily tasks or for use as a daily diary, then jump right in and pop in your first to do list and optimise your life.

The Koh team use our a5 journals for everything from daily planning to daily reflection, and we've said it before, but we know it to be true, your journal is as unique as you are. There's no wrong way to start; the important part is to make that first mark.
