Since getting the journal I have decided to travel and see places that have haunted my dreams. To see beauty I have only seen on tv or pictures. I have decided to see them for myself. The journal helps me take the first steps in doing this.
I've got CPTSD, and due to that it makes doing some things more difficult than those things should be. It takes time and effort to work through sometimes, and on my own that can get a little draining. But so far the journal is fantastic and is wonderful in helping me break things up into more manageable steps (rather than trying to do more than is reasonably possible in a short period of time). I appreciate that it's forcing me to slow down when my brain wants things done NOW, and that I'm also being pushed to not only take note of the good things, but have those things recorded. (Which, as someone in the process of trying to become a peer counselor for abuse survivors, is a brilliant way to help reframe things.) On an aesthetic level, I love how well the paper takes colored pencil. Even though it can be a little time-consuming (if you're like me and want to color in almost everything), the effect is stunning. It almost looks like the pages were printed with the color. I can honestly say I've never run into paper with this sort of quality, and as someone who loves to write and occasionally draw (and has entirely too many notebooks in general, lol) the paper quality alone almost makes the price of these journals worth it. Definitely the icing on the metaphorical cake. 10 out of 10 interested in getting another one whenever my current journal is filled, even if it won't be for a while.
There idea of making your life over as a hero’s journey is brilliant. This is so much fun, and I’m eager to see the science fiction version when it comes out!
I've been eyeing these journals for months now. I'm an MFT trianee and I have been telling people about the Hero's Journal for awhile and I finally decided to try it myself and I'm never going back! This is absolutley amazing. The thought and care put into every aspect of these journals brings me joy as a D&D die hard. I've never felt more organized and positive. This is the journal for you if you don't have the patience for bullet journaling but like the concept.
I have tried many different journals but this one has kept me coming make almost ever day. I start my day with a quest and I have a second journal for the end of the day to write down my thoughts like a quest log. A quest log companion book would be great but as a stand alone journal it has helped me a lot deal with a full/stressfull life.
The subtle changes in the art brings me back to journal more frequently then any other journal has before. I like that there is limited writing space so I dont feel like I have to keep writing.
It’s an awesome journey journal especially now that I have a new job and it’s a new year.
I adore the Hero Journal! I was finding myself overwhelmed every day trying to balance work and starting a cosplay business. This journal has really helped me write out my thoughts and to-dos in one place, making it far easier to set priorities for each day. I now achieve small goals that contribute to my main quest each day instead of being frozen with dread by the immensity of what I'm trying to accomplish. Plus it's just plain fun to use! The artwork and chapters really play into my love for RPGs. I actually WANT to make my lists and notes everyday!
The Journal is excellent quality and fun to use. It is a great alternative to blank pages which have never inspired me to write. Very nicely done - well worth the price!
9 nine year old granddaughter here in the UK is enthralled and engrossed with the journal. Sparking imagination, new words and adventures whilst allowing her to colour her own characters. Brilliant concept and creativity flows throughout the journal , a real treasure of project , one which I am sure will journey with her through life .
I love this journal!!! So much so that I now give them as gifts! I have bought 5 total magic & hero for myself. And 3 hero for friends. We get together and have page coloring nights as well. We love it!!! We need more!!!
It's great! Whenever I need to pause to think, there's always some cute picture to color and the writing areas are very well thought out.
My favorite features are the Allie’s and threats. Listing them really helps me differentiate between them, and especially the threats such as my negative inner critic. The online supports you offer like YouTube are also very helpful and inspirational.
I have a horrible time journaling but I love this one. I color the pages and feel better about what I do every day.
I'm about a week in, and this journal has already helped me feel like I haven't wasted any days while also helping me be gentle with myself for not being able to accomplish everything I might want to in a day. The artwork is so cute and I love seeing a new surprise on every page. Thanks!!
I love the concept and like most of the journal format, but the "Notes" section, with its little dots, is hard to write in.
I adore the Hero's Journal! I have several goals for this year and this is the perfect way for me to track them. I love stories and games, and this journal has game-ified goal tracking. I WANT to write entries and see how the story progresses with my goals. No complaints! Highly recommended, 10/10
This is a beautiful, well- thought out journal. It turns a task or a goal into a hero's quest and that little bit of whimsy changes everything! This will not be my only quest! Thank you for this!
I'm loving it. I will be buying another one!
Very nice journal! I love the art
This is just an amazing. The way its written is beautiful and the artwork is gorgeous.
As a psychotherapist I can say that that journaling is an important and powerful tool to help develop and solidify skills learned in the therapy session. This journal has many of the psychological tools that I would recommend to my patients. Personally I have enjoyed my journal and have found the story line and prompts to be very helpful and engaging. It’s a wonderful book.
I love lord of the rings and wanted to be really productive for my usmle step 1 preparation so this is helping me a lot plus feeling like a real hero while journaling it's awesome.
Bought one for me and one for my wife. First time I've been able to stick to using a journal for any length of time.
My wife and I got journals because we saw them on the How to ADHD channel. We're only a few weeks in, but they have been so helpful in organizing our days and setting priorities for the day.
Writing my goals out and keeping them organized not only makes it easier to pursue them but also makes me feel accountable. Once it’s written on paper it’s a physical reminder of what I did or didn’t do and if it doesn’t get done I’ll be disappointed in myself. That pushes me greatly to do it.
This journal has changed my life! I struggle with PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder) and ADHD and this is truly one of the few things that has kept me grounded during the rough times. I LOVE feeling like my life is an adventure that is just as exciting as LOTR or Harry Potter, as it should be! Identifying threats daily puts me in a strong mindset and identifying allies helps me remember that I am not alone and I'm resourceful. Also, COLORING! I've never been artistic before but I love listening to audiobooks while I color my journal now. I don't think I'll ever use another journal. Quotes about stories and adventure are much more my vibe than the success/productivity kind of quotes. My only request is that I wish there were more storylines! I'd buy them all! THANK YOU to the team behind this journal. You've helped me discover so much about myself and my story.
This book has changed my life immensely. Adding this journal to my morning routine has put me in the right state of mind for the rest of the day. I gave myself a goal of running a half marathon in 4 months and I remind myself of that every morning so I eat healthy and push myself a little bit more everyday. As of now I am down 10 pounds with 30 more to go before half marathon time. Thanks, Jay
I have been absolutely loving this journal. As someone with pretty debilitating ADHD, this has helped me hold myself accountable so much. The gamer in me absolutely has to make sure the "Seize the day" boxes are checked off every night. I'll be a customer for life ❤️.
Being older and never having journaled before successfully I have to say what an amazing experience this has been. Right from the get go I enjoyed writing about my day in the context of the Hero’s journal. Instead of the bland narrative in my head I was able to ramp it up to match my enjoyment of playing D&D with my friends. It helps me to focus on the day I just had and prep for they day ahead. Just thinking about my goals the next day was fine but writing them down as “Quests” made them more interesting and obviously a goal to achieve. I have become a fan of the Hero’s Journal and can’t wait for my next adventure when I finish this journal.
It's a really fun ways to reach your goals.......
Started using it the day after it arrived, and haven’t stopped since! It’s a great way to motivate myself
I've just started using it but I feel like I finally found a journal that was custom made for me. I am still building the habit of using it daily. On the days I use it, I enjoy the reflection and goal setting. Coloring in the pages has been a great fidget as well, love the art and story!
I bought this for my boyfriend for our anniversary. He's a DM and loves TTRPG's and had previously mentioned wanting a journal. I knew the perfect gift! He loves it and plans to use it to keep track of the board games he's created and wants to get published.
I bought this to help me accomplish a not-fun goal in the most fun way I could think of. It's really cool, and the more time I spend coloring it and making it awesome, the more I'll want to accomplish my goal. I can do it, and so can you... And if this works for 91 days, then I get to buy the next journal and continue my journey! I've had it out in public places a couple of times, and people ask me about it because it looks interesting. I'm happy to tell them about it and encourage them (and me) to reach for the stars!
This journal has helped me break down my goals and make them manageable. It keeps my attention and adds fun to the journey. Thank you!
I was really excited to get this. The structure fits me perfectly, and it’s really helping me.
Such a well made journal inside and out!
I'm a game developer and animator that sometimes has a hard time focusing so I've tended to overwork into the night to make up for all the distractions during the day. This little journal has been a godsend to help me get on track and setting up my day before it gets started. It is helping me to better manage my time and set achievable goals. I am absolutely love this thing and I have been recommending it to all my colleagues, friends, and family.
I’m loving it so far! It’s really motivating and is just what I needed! Thought I haven’t done much of it yet, I love the feature that I can color in pages, when I do use it I feel calm after
It has been a very helpful book for my forgetfulness as well as making it fun for me to complete tasks
It’s hard for me to remember to do it every day however when I do remember to do it it makes getting my tasks done for the day more fun because I’m questing
I love this so much! The way the panels are organized really helps me to keep track of my meetings and tasks, and I love to color the pages in the evenings!
Best planner ever! I love that in the beginning, it has you define your quest and sign a letter accepting the quest conditions. I love the end of chapter (week) reflection questions and that you level up. I love the artwork, storytelling, and overall layout of each day. The only thing it's missing is at the end of each chapter, there isn't a place to record your total level in strength, dexterity, etc. but that's not too hard to fill in myself. Also, I think the blank section for listing out additional tasks would be cool if it was labeled "Side Quests."
I use the heroes journal for both a planner and a journal and I fill it out every day. I do wish there was a weekly planner page at the end of the week, for the new week. Other than that, I love this journal.
I bought this journal as a gift for my partner, seeing it recommended for those with ADHD. He's struggled using planners in the past but the format of this one is perfect for him. He's already used it to keep track of school and work tasks as well as personal goal setting and he loves being able to color in the illustrations throughout the book. He and I both highly recommend this - it's a beautiful book and wonderfully desigined!
Very cute and fun. I like the option to color it in. My brother called it “RPG flavored self-help”. Two thumbs up
I've answered the call to adventure! I love my Hero's Journal. I really like the way the pages are set up, it makes it easy to keep focused on what is important to me and to my goal, but also has the flexibility to jot down other non-goal related things as well. The daily gratitudes help me stay in a positive mindset (this is something I've wanted to add to my life anyway, and now I do!). I've only been using it for a few days, but its started me on the path to working towards my goal to improve my life.
I actually really like this book. Especially the way it helps to focus on the positives of things and helps identify the negatives. I like how there is room to write things down and a goal area to focus on the daily tasks. The changing pages are appreciated since it shows that you are actually progressing rather stationary. It's a really good book and will have to buy another once I am through with this.
I now have 2 of these just for myself and they are making such a difference to my peace of mind, and my anxiety, and allow me to be creative. I love this company!!!! I also bought one for the hubs and will be ordering more
This journal has helped me take my mental health journey seriously. It’s turned the idea of “holding yourself accountable” into a fun and rewarding experience. By making the mundane parts of self care fun, The Hero’s Journal has brought me farther along in my journey than I’ve ever gone before.
I really like it. I used the pdf to print first. I want to make sure when I write in my Hero's Journal I'm ready to begin & complete my quest. Right now I think it will be a Family Quest. We will see.
I purchased this for my son's wife. She said it was neat. I wanted something to work to pull us together ❤. Right now they are too pretty & cool to write in, but we will get there I'm sure
I am enjoying my journal so far! I love the drawings and the idea of turning my goals into a guest. I love video games and this makes me feel like I’m beating a game but irl.
It's such a fun journal with coloring page images in the margins that slowly tell a story. It also has level up reflection sections. So much fun so far!
Got the journal as a gift for my fantasy loving boyfriend & he’s absolutely obsessed with it & excited to use it. It’s so beautiful and amazing quality!!!
When I first saw this journal I was interested but though “Do I really need another journal?” The answer is a resounding yes! I love ❤️ everything about this journal: the design, the quality, the storage box, and how I can turn something mundane into an adventure. I love how it is undated so there is no guilt if I feel like skipping a day, I accomplish my quest at my own pace.
Kirjan kuvitus on aivan ihana ja tarina osa mielenkiintoinen. Kirja saa ajattelemaan tulevaisuutta ja helpottaa asioiden järjestelyä. The illustration in the book is absolutely wonderful and the story part interesting. The book makes you think about the future and makes it easier to organize things.
Such a fun journal I love all it!
I love this journal. Every day I'm looking forward to starting a new page and fill it with the days adventure. Helps me be motivated, stay aware of my goals and weaknesses and feel like a Hero of my life. :))
I literally look forward to writing in it daily it's so cool - I wish I had a whole year's worth!
Love this journal. Has kept me extremely motivated at meeting my goals in a very fun and immersive way. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving anything about their personal or professional life.
I love this journal! I was wondering instead of just buying a new one, will you guys make a continuing one that's follow up after the first book so you can keep the quest going and it will be like a sequel with each book you buy after the first one.
I love this journal so much! It has helped me organize my frazzled brain and get my thoughts out there. It helps so much to have a routine without the pressure of a calendar to show that you missed a week since you get to write the dates. I recommend 10/10!!
I like the structured approach that is hidden by the story. Being someone that has been on many video game quests, it is a nice way to keep you focused and moving in the right direction.
The journals are expensive, but I bought one anyway. Then I found out why they cost so much. They literally have different artwork on every single page. Sure, they keep the background the same. But how often can you buy 90 individual, unique art prints for like 60 cents a piece? I love the feel of the cover. I like the magnets on the box. The whole thing is gorgeous even if it were just a journal. But it's not just a journal-- the check in pages are genuine with worthwhile questions and a very cool "leveling up" system, and the pages that walk you through goal creation are really inspiring. I love imagining my challenges through the lens where I'm the hero of some intricate quest with allies and enemies and shadow monsters. I love this project and 100% support this concept. I am so excited to see where the creators take it next.
I love this journal! I use it on my iPad so I'm able to take it wherever I go - coloring my daily pages is surprisingly therapeutic. I'm so in love with the idea of this journal I ordered three just so I could give it away - with no idea of who I was giving it to! Now two co-workers and my adult daughter are all journaling with me. We're adventuring together!
This journal is life-changing! Beautiful, rich colors with beautiful, rich content! I highly encourage anyone who is seeking to make a change, big or small, to take charge of their journey with the Hero's Journal. 5 stars :)
I have severe adhd and love Fantasy and video games. This journal helped me gameify my life. I love how open ended ot is while still providing structure and being a good day planner. 5/5 will be buying more.
The colour is brlliant and the bookmark s adorable! Love that it smells like a freshly made book ♡ Excited to start my journey, got one for my partner as well :)
Absolutely love the journal found it randomly from an Ad on insta, checked it out. Decided to get it. Fell in love. Immediately bought a second and the side quest cards. Will buy this in every color and every style as they come out. Freaking amazing!!
Sometimes the Pages feel like there is too much unstructured space. I wonder what to do with all of it, or struggle to think about how to use it effectively. Other than that, it's wonderful. I especially love the ability to fill out every page by writing in the date. It makes me feel like i'm not missing anything, and the "All or Nothing" mentality isn't able to sabotage me.
Purchased the new version after enjoying the casual, positive nature of the older one, and I love the additions! In particular, the new Chapter Complete pages (with Experience bonuses) are a nice touch. My schedule changes frequently, so having a scheduling space without printed hours is also nice. Overall, the hero's journal remains a great way to make a slogging, hectic day feel...well, cataloged and thoughtful, if not exactly cured of problems.
Great book/journal, nice illustrations, structured process and very existed to use it!
Fun journal that put's a goal into quest form. I enjoy slowly progressing the story each day and having a ritual to fill it out and think about what I want to accomplish. You get out what you put into it.
So far it has been very helpful in helping me organize my thoughts and stay motivated. I enjoy the illustrations and the format, and the encouraging narrative.

Great way to articulate your thought and goals. And what fun to color and doodle along the way! Two thumbs up.
Still trying to figure out how to make it work out best for me, but I’m enjoying the journey!
I’m working on the green one right now, I’m saving the red one for when I finish my green journal. So it’s too early to tell but if it’s anything like the green one, I wish there are more pages to last a year.
I feel like I’m going to burn through the pages. I’m using it for my jiu jitsu journey. I train everyday, I wish it would last the full year. I feel like I’d have to buy 3 of these to get me through the year. I’m loving the art and I enjoy filling in my daily tasks. It helps me progress through techniques I need to drill and major things I need to work on when I get ready for a tournament. I love D&d so the chapter reviews are my favorite parts.
I’m still new to the hero’s journal but it’s been a fun experience so far! I feel like I can better take charge of my goals this way.
This journal is perfect in every way. I always have several goals/quests running at the same time so I also have many Hero’s journals. I loved the second edition of LOI and while I do miss the color your own end pages, the end pages and updated inside of this version is magnificent. I don’t normally feel drawn to the color red, but the red of this journal is so perfect I have 2! It is gorgeous and the pages look, feel, and even smell so good!
The best part about this planner is that it is so many things rolled into one. It is part planner, party prioritized, part gratitude journal, part coloring book, part fun, part reflection journal…part part part. And there’s no pressure because if I lose it, it isn’t dated so I can pick it right back up.
I am really enjoying writing my story. The layout is very accessible and flexible and the illustrations are cute. This is not a super organization planner by nature, although you could use it that way. I'm enjoying that what I'm working on if forming into a narrative. The perspective of yourself as a hero really changes your internal monologue in unexpected ways. Really glad I got this.
I thought it was a cool idea. My friend is a life coach and agreed that it was a brilliant approach. I started with the pdf while I waited for the hardcover (mostly to test it out before marring the pretty pages with my chicken scratch). I was hooked! My chicken scratch is now faithfully filling out the pages each day. I thought it would be like work to keep it up, but that couldn't be further from the truth. It's so well laid out, that is easy to maintain. Since my downtime is in the evenings, I update how the day went and start up the next day's pages with the goals. This keeps things in the back of my brain all day and compels me to finish the pages at the end of the day. I've already given a couple away as gifts. Highly recommend (even if your life is already on track).
Very high quality and very detailed.
Beautiful well put together. Wonderful motivational journal for teens and adults.
The journal is fantastic. It is fun to use and the design is amazing. I really like it and it makes tracking my goals real fun.
Love the experience so far, Just a week in and I'm having fun. I really matches my work too, since I'm a game developer and making adventures and experiences is what I do. Only real issue I have is that they don't have a printing/publisher in Europe. Shipping a single book costs around 50 dollar + the purchase itself!! That price-point is just too much.
Loving the fun adventure and ease of use of the Hero's Journal. Each day, look forward to updating it and so far, so good on the first week of my journey! Also, huge shout-out to the Hero's Journal team -- their customer service and communication was amazing. They were highly committed to getting the journals to their delivery destination before Christmas, even covering 2-day shipping when there were delays that were completely out of their control. They saved the day. Just like Santa. I'll be purchasing many more journals for friends (and probably myself!)
it's really helpful for someone with adhd
Very cool journal that helps you stay motivated throughout the month.
I've only been using the journal for a few days, but it has already been helping with prioritization and getting things done quite a bit. Well-made journal as well. Well done!
I love the storyline so far and when I do a section, I also color and addon some of my own drawings to describe the journey I myself am going through. I would recommend this to a person
I love being able to stay focused on my quest and the relaxing feeling of coloring in my pages everyday
This is my second journal. With just a few days of use with my first journal, I found it helpful enough that I wanted to have a second ready when my quest ends.
