When I turned 23, one of my best friends gifted me this nocturnal journal - Can't Sleep Write Now. I was once a devoted diary girl, noting down anything from novel-esque passages about my day to lists of things that I liked to one-liner snippets about the week.

Nowadays? Not so much. And with that I've become almost completely nocturnal, struggling through early mornings and then being unable to sleep until the wee hours. While I don't think my lack of journaling really contributes to this, this nocturnal journal has become somewhat of a staple in my evening routine.

Can't Sleep Write Now features lined pages with simple questions that get your brain ticking before bed. Teamed with quotes about dreaming, sleeping, etc. the journal is a sweet little keepsake that is undated meaning that you can write in it as often or little as you want. As a writer, blogger and journalist, I find it helps me to simmer my thoughts down to a more sleep-acceptable level too. I keep it next to my bed, alongside my eye cream, evening face mask and lip balm for a complete routine.

  8. Thanks Molly! I was an avid diary writer, this is a nice little step for those who don't fancy writing too much - it leaves you with a compilation of super honest thoughts haha!

  9. Thanks Jane! I tend to pick random pages when I fancy writing. Handwriting is a dying art sadly, so I really like having a good go every few evenings.

    I've recently bought a journal, I think it could be quite therapeutic to write how I'm feeling. When I was younger I used to write in a diary too, but as I got older I stopped. This seems like a great journal to get started again.
