20 Journals and Workbooks for Finding Your Inner Wisdom

The world is filled with people who are eager to tell you how you should feel and what to do about it, but if you’ve ever found yourself exhausted after trying to follow all their advice, you know it’s just noise. The best way to find clarity, calm, and confidence is to uncover how you really feel, spend some time questioning the stories you’re telling yourself, and accept the truths you discover. Guided journals and workbooks are a beautiful way to tap into your intuition and own experience, and the ones on this list will help you move away from “should” and toward real wisdom and self knowledge.
