Journaling has been shown to spark creativity, increase emotional intelligence & happiness, boost memory and comprehension, enhance IQ and even help injuries heal faster.

Want to change your life? Start this one habit – journal!

Diem is the best journaling app to help you remember and look back at your life, memorializing the moments and milestones that led you to where you are today. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, Diem helps you memorialize your life with photo entries. Diem automatically displays photos from your library to easily add to your daily journal entries.

Successful people and visionaries throughout history have kept journals, including Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Leonardo da Vinci and many others.

Journaling has been proven to provide positive well-being and significant health benefits including healing from mental health issues as well as loss and grief.


Experts say journaling may be the most useful activity you will ever add to your personal development arsenal.

Scientific studies have shown that journaling can boost mindfulness, memory and communication skills and have also found that writing in a journal can lead to better sleep, a stronger immune system, more self-confidence and even a higher I.Q.

Journaling may sound hokey to some. But it can be one of the most useful and effective tools we have to forge a better, more emotionally and mentally healthy life.


Journaling externalizes your memories, giving your mind space to process more or work through a dramatic situation or event. Journaling has been called “the ultimate self-healing tool”.

Diem helps you reflect on your day, your experiences, and your life. You can use Diem to track your successes and analyze setbacks and failures so that you can learn from those moments as well.

Simply take a few moments each day to reflect and memorialize the day. You can add photos and emotions. Diem also uses advanced machine learning and natural language processing to analyze your journal entries and automatically pick a corresponding emotion. You can always override this of course. Over time, you’ll be able to look back through the months and years and see what you did on the same day each year.

Add the beautiful Diem iOS 14 Home Screen widget to see journal entries from the day, throughout the years.

Diem helps you stay motivated with reminders, streaks and badges. Share them or beautifully formatted journal entries with friends and family.

Diem helps to illuminate powerful insights into your thoughts and emotions. See how you’ve been feeling over the past 7, 30, 90 days, the past year or all time. Diem also uses advanced machine learning and natural language processing to help you explore the most common words and topics from your journal entries.

Security and privacy are key to everything we do. Diem does not share your personal information or journal entries in any way. Your data is only backed up to your Apple iCloud account for safe keeping and syncing to all your devices.


* Clarify your thoughts and feelings: get in-touch with your internal world.
* Know yourself better: get to know what makes you feel happy and confident.
* Reduce stress: writing about anger, sadness and other painful emotions helps to release the intensity of these feelings.
* Resolve disagreements with others: writing about misunderstandings rather than stewing over them will help you to understand another’s point of view.

very satisfying   ‌  

I recommend everyone to try this one, it is good to have different fonts, change the color of the front, you can choose your mood, it has a theme but for everything, there must be professional registration
