I fully enjoyed using Hobonichi Cousin as my journaling companion through 2023.
I use the daily pages to jot down thoughts and reflections every night, usually before going to bed. Based on what I write on the daily page, I come up with one line insight/lesson, which I have been documenting on my monthly pages. With this method, the monthly pages give me a loose idea of what I might have written on the daily pages. Over time, my monthly pages become an index, which helps me grasp an overarching theme/thoughts I might be working with whether consciously or unconsciously. I have been using weekly pages as a place to capture my gratitudes each day. We all have ups and downs in life and it's encouraging and powerful to have a single place where I can visit anytime to soak up the energy of everyday gratitude radiating. Writing gratitude has such a positive mental effect and having the weekly pages dedicated also keeps me accountable to keep using the space every day.
Hobonichi Cousin has so many great features packed into the notebook and I am so curious to hear how you might be using your Hobonichi Cousin! - Wakako
