Your private journal for growth and wellness! is the only journal that guides reflection practice each month. Start Today! helps you gain clarity, cultivate gratitude, and find peace — so you can live your best life.

Writing turns your thoughts, emotions, and experiences into words. Reflecting on your past will help you find meaning, learn, and grow.

With our inspiring prompts, guided frameworks, and powerful reflection tools, is the only digital journal app that makes writing and self reflection accessible for all.


This is your personal writing oasis where you bring your interests and journaling preferences, and we bring a peaceful, guided journal approach — to help guide your growth each month.

You could write in a notes app, a word doc, a therapy journal, a self care journal, a self love journal, a mental health journal, a gratitude journal, a manifestation journal, and on and on, without ever seeing any progress in your life.

We created this reflective journal based on years of experience and feedback about what actually works to maintain a daily writing practice that leads to dramatic personal growth.


+ Easy to Start, Easy to Keep Going: Maintain your journaling habit with a calming, minimalist experience (Download and start journaling in less than a minute)

+ Journal Wherever You Are, From Your Phone or Computer (Every version of the app is synced so your memories never get lost no matter what device you are using or where you are)

+ Quick Templates: Save your favorite prompts and quotes so that your “tried and true” journaling sessions are just a tap away

+ Gentle Notifications: Completely customize the timing and frequency of app, email, and monthly review reminders

+ Thought-Provoking Journal Prompts: Hundreds of daily journal writing prompts to kick-start your writing journey

+ Powerful Tagging System: Tag and categorize your journal entries in ways that make sense to you

+ Lightning-Fast Search: Find old entries by tag or by the words used in the entry themselves

+ Lock Your Entries to Keep Them Private From Prying Eyes: Blur certain entries by locking them with a pin code

+ Mindful Activities: Become a self-reflection and self-awareness master with guided journaling journeys (Increase intention, boost your wellness, enhance your compassion, develop creativity, and much more)

+ Completely Secure: You own your data and the words you share in your entries. Export everything as a JSON or CSV file whenever you want


+ Focus on Reflection: This takes you beyond keeping a diary into making meaning from your experiences. Now it’s simple to figure out who you are and what you want out of life.

+ Meets You Wherever You Are: Flexible enough to be your private diary but not confining like a prompted journal app. Get mental health benefits without having to adopt the approach of a particular wellness journal, anxiety journal, or depression journal.

+ The “Today” Page is Your Home Base: Respond to the daily prompt, see your journaling insights, or intuitively “Look Back” to review your old entries and see how far you’ve come.

+ Unique Monthly Review / Guided Journal Framework: Revisit your month, learn from what happened, make peace with the past, and grow into the future. (Plus, all your monthly reviews are saved to help you with your annual review.)


Don’t worry, the core features of this app will always be free!

We believe digital journaling should be accessible to anyone who wants to reflect on their life.

Affordably upgrade to Premium to unlock all features, including:

+ Add Photos to Your Entries

+ Create Custom Tags

+ Customize Your Quick Templates

+ Rich-Text Formatting for Entries

+ Unlimited Synced Entries Across Mobile and Web Platforms

A New Year must have

I got this virtual journal because I always worry too much about the way my page looks when I'm writing. Like, screw the aesthetics! Let's get into what we really came here for. REFLECTION. I love the daily prompts and the monthly recaps. If you're really in a writing mood you can free write, get themed writing inspiration, or add to ones you already made. They have questions divided into sections about the mind, body, soul, etc. The tags to help keep track of your writing is so fun to use. I find myself looking forward to the time I spent Journaling with myself everyday and I've never been good at staying consistent. You can make a free account to access your journal on multiple devices. Plus, I haven't encountered a pay wall yet. This app gets 5 stars from me!

Best Journaling App Ever

I find myself being able to journal almost every day now with the app. I am 50 years old I am set in my ways I love the smell of paper and I love the way the pen flows and I love to see the ink marks on my hand. But in this busy world that we are in I don’t get time to fully write what I want to write whereas this way I’m actually not even writing when I’m journaling I get to talk and express my thoughts through words with the app. The guides that they offer wonderful for when you just wanna journal about something the insides are amazing the membership is invaluable and the community of people are just amazing people get the app become a part of the community you will not regret it.

Set Sail!

I journal so that my present self might better preserve and profit from past challenges and aspirations and thus more ably chart and change course to a better and more intentional future self. I also write for my grandchildren’s children so that we might chat and they might sail past some of the reefs and shoals I’ve encountered in my explorations. More than just a chronicler of the quotidien, the Holstee Reflection app allows me to navigate as well as log my journey, be it under full canvas or tacking into strong headwinds, through curated reviews, gentle yet demanding promptings, and expanded options to illustrate as well as write. Experienced, procrastinating, struggling, and novice journalers alike will find safe harbors and stout winds herein.

Thank you for this beautifully written review 🙏 ❤️️
