One-Sentence Journal

$34.00 SKU: THP-Journal-OSJ

The One-Sentence Journal is inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s own experience of creating a one-sentence journal to help keep a colorful record of her own life. Satisfying yet manageable, the One-Sentence Journal is designed for those who yearn to keep a record of their lives, but who can’t manage to write a long entry every day. We tend to overestimate what can be done in the short term, and underestimate what can be done in the long term, a little bit at a time. Writing one sentence a day sounds easy (and it is), and at the end of a year, adds up to a marvelous record.

Use this journal to record the progress of a new business or project, to write sweet memories of a child’s first year, to track a course of medical treatment, as a gratitude journal, as a food or travel journal, or to note creative insights.

One - Sentence Journal

A fun and meaningful journal that is well-laid out and meaningful.

Jennifer Golden
Great idea for the journal challenged!

I got this as a gift for my husband who has never been consistent with traditional journaling. He likes it. One sentence doesn’t overwhelm him. 👍🏻

Molly Peralta

Perfect journal for quick thoughts.

One sentence journal

I was a little skeptical about another journal - I don’t usually complete but I have been surprised how easy it is to use and allows me to record events that are important but I don’t write everyday. I love the format. Thank you;)
