Different ways to use a journal

You could use a journal to list your long-term and short-term goals as well as the steps to achieving your goals. By listing steps into manageable parts, it seems much more realistic.

Some people like to keep a record of their daily activities. You could do this and list what you did for the day, how it made you feel and who you interacted with. 

Make it fun by adding pictures of your recipes or stickers of food. Decorate with a pretty washi tape.

    In 2010, Alison Deary decided to create a diary that would help her with the challenge of managing a household, kids and work all at the same time. 12 years later the MOM and the WOW Diaries are still an invaluable tool to so many women.As a working mother with 4 sons, Alison had to find ways of keeping track of everyone in the family, running the household and staying on top of her own commitments, so she set about designing a diary that became her home management hub. She realised that her situation was not unique, and that all women, with or without kids, are faced with a diversity of demands in life.The MOM and WOW Diary system incorporate many helpful solutions to organisation, time management, budgeting, goal setting, meal planning, record keeping, expressing gratitude and convenience. All in a simple, effective and easy to use format.Since inception, the content of the diary has evolved with the helpful input of many of our clients. Although it is an impossible task to keep everybody happy all of the time, we are extremely proud of the positive feedback we continue to get. Our creative team strives to keep up with global design trends, and we have a lot of fun presenting a fresh look each year.
