I have used the hero’s journal in the past and really enjoyed it, I have a deep love for journaling but I’m not very good at it especially if it’s just a book with empty pages having prompts and questions and planning helps me tremendously, this time around I also picked up a side quest deck and it’s fun and I look forward to randomly picking a card I might add a d-20 to make it more interesting
Before switching to the hero’s journal I would write to do lists or start monthly planners. This never worked well because I would lose the lists and interest in the planners dwindled. I came across the company through a Facebook ad and fell in love with the idea of turning my goals into an RPG quest. I love everything fantasy as well as coloring to relieve stress and the fact that it’s undated allows me to pick it up wherever I left off, even when I need a break or life throws a curveball. I am looking forward to the new story line but have tried the other two and my favorite has to be LOI, especially since dragon are my favorite fantasy creature
I started buying the journals at the end of 2020 and have never bought any other journal. Since I write in the hero’s journal daily I’ve already gone through almost 7 of them. And now I can’t wait to start writing in the Galaxy of Istoria journal.
My daughter already stole the deep space journal. She's using it for her 1st semester of college. She's actually taking astronomy this year so it fits. My main goal is to be a motion graphics animator. I phrase my quest as trying to become a Visual Bard. Looking forward to the space journal.
I haven't started journaling with it yet but I'm in love with the presentation of everything.
I have never used more than 5 pages in a journal or planner. When Jessica McCabe of How to ADHD mentioned the Heroes Journal, I gave it a try and boy am I ever glad I did. I've used 2 journals so far and I love the benefits it has brought to my life. It is therapy and self care and helps me stay on track. It's a great brain dump and fun to use. I've recommended it to nearly everyone I know. The best part is applying the Hero's Journey monomyth cycles to my quest. Each chapter provides insight into how I want to progress my goals and the shadows I need to face within myself. I just recieved the Istorianaut bundle and it's beautiful. I appreciate the high quality that you've put into every item. I'd love a vinyl sticker if you choose to make them. Am I gushing? I feel like I'm gushing. Thank you.
Love love love My Hero's Journals! It helps me a lot and I used it once with my 6-year old nephew. Our threat was the sticky screen monster and our ally a time-timer and let me tell you it worked like a charm when we usually struggle to take him off (bad habits were taken). Only issue I have is the GOI pdf is misaligned and I can't use it properly, which is not the case with my adventurer edition!
I've been using the Hero's Journal on and off for a couple of years now. It has everything my ADHD brain needs for emotional health: daily gratitude journaling, connecting to my quest every day, and picking the three most important things to work on each day. It also reminds me to watch out for baddies and recruit my allies. Finally, it has a page-a-day layout (which I need for lots of notes!) and a different adventure every day that I can doodle or colour on.
I love these journals and the new companion journals with GoI, especially the new colours. The digital versions are also great; I love using the pages in my various GoodNotes journals. I miss the stickers though; I wish there had been physical stickers with the journals and digital stickers with the PDFs. The quality is always fantastic, but it is the designs and layout that really convinced me to buy them. These are such unique planners and the additional tools (Side Quest Decks, Companion Journals, PDFs) really help me accomplish my goals and stick to journaling, while having fun!
I have been a strong supporter of the Hero's Journal ever since I first saw an earlier addition of LOI and now have an IMA, 3 GOI, and 5 LOI journals. This is an amazing company and I encourage anyone who hasn't picked up a Hero's Journal to pick one up. If you do, I can almost guarantee it will not be your last! This latest version, Galaxy of Istoria, is fantastic in every way and as a hard-core LOI enthusiast, GOI did not disappoint. I like to have multiple quests (in multiple journals) going at the same time since they are so distinct and I can't wait to start my first GOI quest. Apparently my cat Yoda feels the same way!
The packaging and quality of my bundle blew my mind in a good way as expected with my other purchases with the hero’s journal in my quest to find a journal that can handle thick pen fountain and gel pen ink ✍️ . The companion journals feel nice and top quality. I really loved the space themed side quest deck, I loved the quotes especially. It was tough to read some of the longer quotes on the cards but it was still legible overall. I am really stoked when this came in the mail
This Journal is an inspirational tool it has got me through a really hard time in my life. I am on Day 76... I have never been able to keep with a journal. But with this one I look forward to every entry. I was diagnosed with ALS and I dont believe I have it And everyday I get stronger, it proves I have something ailment. This journal helps me fight, and to have beaten my original diagnosis. I am on my quest to do so.
This journal truly changed my life. I am a massive fan of fandoms. Star Wars is my most important and favorite (hence the Galaxy of Istoria journal), but Avatar, Harry Potter, and any other story I can get my hands on I latch onto. Stories play a massive role in my life. In 2020, my mental health plummeted. In addition, I discovered that I have ADHD, which helped me realize that normal productivity journals, as well as the culture of toxic productivity, not only did not work for me but also made me feel terrible when I couldn't be productive. This journal literally saved my life. It just clicks. I got one in early 2021 and it pulled me out of the darkest part of my life. Life and tasks and to-do lists didn't feel unmanageable. I get to tell a real, true story about myself as a hero. And as someone who longs for that, it scratches the right itch. This journal is magnificent. It helps make my life more fun, and meaningful, and genuinely helps me conquer tasks. On top of that, the quality of the journal, the artwork, and the pages are top-notch. The care and thought that went into this product are outstanding. I could not recommend this product enough. I will be a forever customer, buying a new one as the old one gets filled up. I am already on my 3rd journal! This journal is so worth it. Do yourself a favor and set out on a quest.
I love the fact that the journal lets me be both broad and specific in my goals for the day. Having to sit down and think about what I'm grateful for each day is putting things in perspective for me. Undated pages, and an area for me to journal or doodle is amazing.
Love the digital, can't wait to fill the physical out. It feels great in my hands. The cover is super soft, the binding is sturdy. It's a real pleasure to hold it. It's special and makes me feel pretty special too to be able to write in it!
I bought a journal awhile ago for my son. He immediately fell in love with it and has been obsessed ever since! This was a birthday gift for him (turning 19) and he was SO excited when he opened it. I have seen many positive changes in him since he started the Heroes Journal. Thank you for making such an amazing product!
Love this planner! I’ve started using it as a yearly with each day being a week instead of 1 day. I had been working out wonderfully and it’s just so fun. The customer service is BAR NONE! And the world building and story design is just so fun!
I love this!
I'm half way through my second journal. I did Magic Academy first and it helped me complete a major performance piece I'd been working on. It was a HUGE support for my creative process - the journal helped me stay organized and on top of project steps, and it was FUN which absolutely helped me tap into my creative brain. I am now working through Legend as I work on expanding my piece after a successful performance. I have Galaxy queued up for my next adventure and I get excited thinking about what that might be and knowing I have a fun new journal to carry me on! I've recommended The Hero's Journal to all my friends and several now have journals and Side Quest Decks. I am so impressed by the thought and care that went into each journal story, companion journal, and Side Quest Deck. These are beautiful products on all levels and I recommend the whole lot! Thanks Hero's Journal Team for the joy and drive you've added to my creative ventures!
Since you've had a few days to try out the product, I'd love to get your initial thoughts: 1) What were you using to plan and track your goals prior to The Hero's Journal? I am using my journal to plan and track my daily tasks and, more specifically, my quest to get back into competition shape! I set goals for my health and fitness, track my health habits and gym activities, and manage my schedule in my hero journal! 2) What made you willing to try us out? I like the focus of the setup- just 3 things I can do each day to achieve my goals as compared to a long list, space to track what helps and hurts my progress each day, a gratitude practice to set my mind in a positive intention each morning... it is perfect! Other planners have overwhelmed me because they have such long to-do lists and agendas. 3) Have you enjoyed your experience with us? Yes! Customer service is responsive and does a great job fixing problems, even if they aren't the HJ's fault! The products are high quality and look awesome, and the interaction on social media is fantastic!
I've been using hero's journals for over 1 year now. I don't think I'll ever stop using them. They are how I start my day every morning and how I finish my day!
Just when I think that there cannot be any more journals created, these guys come up with another story quest. I have finished 8 quests already and I'm not nearly finished creating more. I love the covers, the format, the pictures, and the coloring opportunities. I have found identifying the allies and the threats most enlightening. Thankfully there is extra room for writing as many times my gratitudes overflow the space available for them. I've struggled to continue a journaling practice in the past, but no more as I look forward to doing it everyday with the Hero's Journal. Just one request: release that rose colored one as a single journal, please!
I am a huge fan of the hero’s journal and I’ve been using it for a couple years now. I always get excited when they launch a new story line and I can’t wait for the next one!!

There is nothing more exciting to live the story where I'm the hero, specially a futuristic one like Galaxy of Istoria.
I absolutely love my Hero's Journal! It helps me organize my scattered thoughts and to be more intentional about every day. Planning the next day has become a cherished activity in the evenings, and I feel better-equipped to handle difficult days thanks to advanced consideration of what's coming up!
Love the new Deep Space Galaxy journal! The art and quality are top notch. Also really like the companion journals for notes, sketches and other stuff. The only thing that keeps this from being a mind glowingly great product is I wish it was a little more distinguished from the Legends of Istoria journal in ways other than just the art. LOI was very quest focused about acheiving a specific goal with a clear victory in mind. The Istoria magic Academy was pretty unique and felt geared towards students and people on a “self improvement” quest. Maybe if Galaxy of Istoria was more exploration focused with no fixed end, just boundless space and all you can do is explore as much of it as you can before having to return for refueling and then setting out again.
I love using the original journal to pursue my plans for a fulfilling retirement! That quest will enter a new phase soon, so I am going to space with my next journal! No pictures of that yet since I can't open it until my birthday. Just another layer of motivation in my quest for a happy healthy retirement!
