I am a sucker for any kind of planner/diary. The Hobonichi is no exception. The Tomoe River paper alone is enough to make me swoon. It takes a variety of media without bleeding and when you use it the crinkles when you turn the pages just get me in the feels. 🙂 (I purchased an A6.)
Y’all they offer a 5 Year diary.
I know, right?
Although I am a bookbinder I have to say that I adore their planners and diaries. The paper and the Japanese asthetic are my jam. And so I caved and bought their 5 year book. So here are some ways that you can use a 5 year book.
- Daily drawing. Self explanatory.
- Weather every day. If you are a weather geek, this is your jam.
- Gratitude journal. We all need to practice an attitude of gratitude.
- Poem a Day. You can write your own or copy the masters.
- Thought of the day/saying of the day.
- Day summarized in 1 sentence. It’s fun to look back and see what’s happened.
- Kid diary (quotes, etc.). This is a wonderful way to chronicle kid life.
- Health/symptom log. If you have a chronic illness this is a great way to track symptoms, meds, etc. over the years.
- Scripture a day. You can memorize or just write them down.
- Food diary. If you struggle with food, a yearly food journal can help your long-term goals.
- Household diary/log. You can document repairs, maintenance and a host of other long term household related things.
- Dream journal. Writing down dreams can be very insightful.
- This day in history. Write the thing you feel is mot important each day.
- Plant/garden log to track you progress long term.
- Word of the day (especially second language)
- Pet log. Vet visits, behaviors, etc can help you better care for your furry friend.
- Work Diary.
- Personal log. Log things personal to you–exercise, tech time, etc.
- Workout log. Partition days to track distance, weight lifted (or lost) and anything else you need to know so you can monitor progress.
- Metal health/Mood.
- Habits of all kinds. If you are trying to kick a habit or starting a new one, this can help you with your long term tracking/goals
What do you use your 5 year book for?
