How To Use It
Curate your journal experience.
Your journal takes you down your own track.
Create the canvas and capture the moments that really matter. Leatherpress journals get thoughts from our head to the paper, allowing space to remember and preserve memories, sights, sounds, people. Get your ideas and questions down on paper, plan, outline, design and brainstorm.
An Essential Accessory
In essence, your Leatherpress journal is a personal assistant, a blank canvas taking dictation, a trusty companion on life’s journey. Leatherpress journals are designed for any kind of writing you’ll put inside. Keep it next to your laptop as a notepad, or make it into a goal-setting journal. You can log collections, describe dinner menus, or make a list of vegetable plants to order for the garden. Start your new novel, or write out your worries and your gratitude.
Clear Through The Clutter
We live in a culture of information overload. So much is taken into our minds each day, some helpful, some not. The simple task of thinking can be a challenge. Embrace the opportunity to stop, think, record. Pen and paper become the means to clarity and a peaceful approach to your next day, next hour, next step.
You Need A Luxury Thinking Tool
We’ve got lots of ideas about leather journals and leather notebooks and we know you do, too. Where are you going in the next month? What are you doing today? What projects need organizing? Do you simply need the feel of pebbled leather and your favorite pen in your hand? Time to think is a luxury and you need a luxury thinking tool.
So much more than we can imagine is waiting for us when we board that flight or walk the ramp onto that ferry. Record those impressions as they happen. Your travel journal adds the color commentary to your photos. What are your traveling companions saying about what they see? Turn down the dial on sightseeing. Sit down at a street café, let time spin unattended. Write yourself through the whirl to the beauty of the place, the time, the people.
Your reading journal is your pathfinding companion as you learn, explore and challenge your brain cells. It’s a great way to keep track of what you have read, and looking back gives insight into topics, historical genres, or authors you really enjoyed. Try it out! You’ll find your friends coming to you for recommendations!
Experience the mindset altering power of gratefulness. Science has proven that the simple act of listing what you can be thankful for increases satisfaction with life, improves resilience and self-esteem. Physically, writing in a gratitude journal can actually lower cellular inflammation, reduce stress and help you sleep better. Best, practicing gratitude builds upon itself as you find yourself noticing more and more for which to be thankful. It’s no surprise that gratitude builds stronger relationships and encourages better care of ourselves and others.
While we may no longer use “Dear Diary,” perhaps our Leatherpress journal is a stand in for that person who knows us best. Write down whatever you want – frustrations from the day, tasks accomplished, who, where and what happened. How many great books have been written because an old diary was found, questions were raised, stories pieced together. Who knows who might find it some day?
Plan, write, execute. Putting your plans into this leather journal adds to the value of the project itself. The beauty of your plan is conveyed by the buttery leather, clean lines and soft to the touch leather journal. Our Heritage journals contain a table of contents – great for entering dates or events that need to be covered as you think through your steps to success.
