I love this planner!! I use a dot grid post-it that i move daily for habit planning, and a separate notebook to make calendar spreads. It’s beautiful, the art is fun, and the allies/threats/gratitude really make me pause and think daily. I didn’t think I would enjoy the time stamped to-do list, but it has my ADHD brain actually considering WHEN i’ll do something, and how long it will take. I love filling out the next day and look forward to seeing how the adventure progresses, both in the book and real life!
I have been using the journal for a short while now and it has been a fantastic tool for making each day better, both mentally and in terms of productivity! Having the tools of a daily planner and tick list, as well as daily positive psychology reinforcement all in one place makes planning the day and feeling good about it so simple! The journal gives me just the level of encouragement I needed in order to take a bit of initiative in my daily tasks. It doesn't treat you like a toddler, nor does it give you too much freedom that it is overwhelming (like I would often find with a plain journal). Instead it gives you just the right about of guidance to make a real difference. Oh and the build quality is perfection. The outside of the book feels sturdy and protective, and has a lovely feel. Each page feels resiliant and well-made, none of that cheap flimsy paper here! Such a pleasant writing experience. The artwork is incredible as well, lovely to look at and makes it feel so personal since every single page is different. It makes it feel like each day is an adventure. I will be buying another when I run out of pages for sure! TL;DR: Quality - 10/10 Writing Experience - 10/10 Helpfulness & Guidance - 10/10 Highly recommended.
It has been super helpful to sit down and thing about what is a threat but also more importantly what is an ally to my taste today. I love the reflection page to go back and see everything I was grateful for to remember that there are things that bring me happiness.
Finally an adhd friendly planner that doesn't make me feel so guilty I want to hide it. I've been using the Hero's Journal everyday for a week and I've been more in touch with my to-do list, processes AND my long term goals A+++ Thank you!
The illustrations are so cute! While the quests don't necessarily help with brain fog, I am committing to this one day at a time. It does help to see the whole day. My allies remain the same, as do my obstacles. It would be nice to have a website that allows us to update as well, sort of like 4thewords.
I really like all the pictures & the lay out of the book, the only thing that I would tweak is it has maybe 10 pages that are different and fun & then it just repeats the same pages all the way to the end. I really like it though and will still use it, but if your advertising for ADHD people, doing the same thing over again on the pages, it might not end up holding my attention for very long. I really like the concept though & always trying new ways to keep myself organized/ writing, since it helps a lot.
I am really loving the journal, its simple and very effective, i am someone who isnt very organized and this has helped me with sticking to my goals alot better! Definitely worth it!
The hero’s journal was such an awesome buy. I saw it promoted on New Rockstars Youtube channel and I wanted to give it a try. After the craziness that was last year, I have wanted to work on both my physical and mental health and the journal has really been helping me keep my promises to myself. I got one for me and my wife and I just bought one for my mom and sister. Y’all have a beautiful thing going here and I hope that y’all find a ton of success while helping others. Keep on rocking.

I got this for my best friend and he loves the non-pressure and unique journal entry style! The quality is perfect too
I love journaling, and this is by far my favourite one! I've been using it for almost two weeks now and I love how flexible it is, and that I can colour in it, too! I bought the blue one for my friend to repay her for a journal she bought me. I have the grey one and I love the colour and texture of the cover. I can't wait for the new leather notebook!
From the very first page this journal was much more than I could have ever hoped for! Thank you so much for creating such a brilliant work of art. Love you guys!
This was a gift for my daughter in law. She loves it and really likes the blue color. She didn't realize it came in blue so that was a welcome surprise for her. Great journal!
I love being able to break my day down. The periodic places to reflect on how things are going is really helpful. The illustration is so amazing!!
I'm really excited about this, and it dovetails very nicely with a big goal I've been working on. A friend of mine told me about this and I'm glad I jumped at the chance. Just started using the dailies today (lining up the Quest Start with the New Moon) and I'm looking forward to interacting with folks in the Hero's Quarters. Many thanks to all of you who were involved in this -- Very well done, indeed.
There are no words to describe how helpful this journal has been for me this past year. It is especially amazing because the structure and psychology in it apply to help reach any kind of goal. I have always loved the fantasy world of quests, magic and dragons, and being able to apply this scaffolding to my past years journey through cancer treatment has been life changing. I literally picture myself as this determined little hero, and the treatments my Drs have me on are the sword, and acknowledging both my allies and threats has been powerful stuff! It's also been a great journal for many of my friends and reaching their heart's desire as well! I plan to continue on my quest long after my treatment is over, because this journal is truly a great tool for life.
I’m so happy I found the Hero Journal. Totally makes me rethink my goals and how reach for them. I’m a fan for life.
I love it so far! I haven't used the digital copy as of yet but the hard copy when I remember is nice to like think about, positives as allies, and negatives as things to conquer.
I absolutely LOVE my journal. I also have the original version, which is my personal favorite preferred theme so I can’t wait for the updated version of the original to be available. That said, I love both versions so much it is wonderful to have both. The paper quality and art is amazing and I have and will continue to tell everyone about these wonderful journals. 110% perfect in every way!
My daughter loves this journal and is excited to get into it!
Perfect to ach
I absolutely love my journal! I’ve sent the link for this website to my family members and friends. I have never been excited to write in a journal before but now that my journey is a quest I wake up excited to find out what’s next. It has helped me to more reflective and productive. It’s funny how just changing my perspective makes things much easier to tackle.
As a parent, I had searched for a while for a planner enticing enough to draw in my reticent new high school student - the search is over. My student loved it from first sight! The slight changes in the art from page to page drew them immediately into the story! Beautifully bound and packaged, this item is worth it!
I have adhd y’all and let me tell you this journal has been a blessing! I will say that the cover got a stain on it and that’s incredibly hard to get off but I love this journal! I haven’t used it as often as I like but I love how you can use it for quests and just because of this review am going to get back to planning with it everyday! It’s incredibly motivating and I love all. The quotes that are given!
The grumpy gnome review: Don't buy this book that will help you change your life and especially don't share one with anyone else because the cheer will spread. Don't enjoy your best life and don't clean under your bed and don't face your fears at all. This book will help you so much that it's best to walk away now before you find yourself buying them all the time and giving them out indiscriminately at every gathering. That is all.
It feels magical to open the box and know that I hold a book in my hands that is like a best friend, cheering me on and reminding me of my better self when I lose my way. Disclaimer: Now that you have found them, you may need them in your life now and forevermore. Best to start keeping a Hero's Journal savings jar somewhere handy because awesome purchasing opportunities come often. Castle mice and pins and pens and companion journals... The adventure continues! ❤️
I haven't finished my first journal yet, but The Hero's Journal has been absolutely vital in making personal changes over the past two months. The Astoria Magic Academy version is much more my aesthetic, though. I love the greyish purple color of it and all of the magic theming is just adorable. 10/10.
I love the journal! It's like playing a video game where I get to be Harry Potter. I also love that I can color it in however I want...it's very relaxing. One thing I will say that I wish was improved was the time visualization. Just because I often have late night meetings, so I wish the hours were longer! I love it starting at 6AM so it inspires me to wake up earlier to take advantage of my mornings! Otherwise, I love everything about this journal and it's my FAVORITE one thus far!
I've already had a long journey filled with more bumps and obsticals than I cared for...this journal gives me a new starting point. Worried for what it might entail but as soon as I opened it, I realized it was more than I imagined. Better. I needed a new quest, a way to write a new story and this helps give me that new beginning. I'm more than happy with this product and I'm excited for the first time in a very long time to start again. Thank you from Canada!
It's beautiful. I love the doodles and the story and the characters! The paper is high quality and thick.
I love the new concept of going through the magic school, enjoying the story while making my own personal one. I like really looking forward each day to what different illustrations I will see. Such fun! The only detractions were the binding wasn't as good as my original, and the gray cover was a darker shade than the product in photos which I didn't like as well.
It is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to use it. I have never been very good at journaling, but I have been very consistent in doing so since starting to use these journals. I got this one so I wouldn’t have to wait when I fill up my current “Hero’s Journal”. Thank you for giving me a wonderful outlet and a way to help organize my day.
This is in regards to the Istoria Magic Academy. As far as a journal goes, this is a big step away from the classic college lines of paper and boring blank pages. Its fun being able to set goals to the animated setting especially since I'm into studying something as difficult as languages, every vocabulary goal feels like a new magical wizard lesson to complete. Very happy to have it.
Using this journal has helped me find my voice in my writing, and get words on the pages. I love taking the time to fill this journal out each morning, writing about the positives in life, and noting anything that may block my path to reaching my goal. The art work is amazing, the pages are thick enough to use watercolor pens on without any bleed through. I love having the journal divided into sections, with reflections during your journey to help you reach your goal.
Being stuck in life is a feeling we know all to well. Sometimes we need an unexpected visitor to give us a push out of our discomfort zone. This book and the thought give into its design is just that. Does the journal fix my life? No, it’s the effort to write one word at a time, put one foot in front of the other, one smile then another. Thank you for reminding us that change is possible…
Super fun and engaging way to journal every day! I love framing it as a Quest. And, I’ve become addicted to coloring in the cute graphics each day too. Excellent and supportive online community as well!
Even though I've only been using my journal for a couple weeks, I love how it helps me keep my quest front and center while still making space for the other things in my life. Also, climbers are adorable and rad.
