For years journaling has enjoyed the spot of a good habit. This exercise of penning thoughts on a paper, found its origins about 2000 years ago, in ancient China, when Ma Dubo started noting his travel adventures to Mount Tai as a part of his ritualistic offering for the emperor. The historical significance of journaling has laid down its benefits.

And if like me, you too are willing to start fresh, then friends allow me to introduce these interesting categories of journals that will cater to all your needs.
