The 52 Mondays series is an invitation to live seasonally and mindfully. It is a set of four seasonal mindfulness journals that invite you to attune to your inner landscape or the emotional season you’re in as you also lean into what’s happening in the natural world. In either case, my hope is that they will help you live fully present and mine for the wisdom and beauty in every season.

This a beautiful journal that’s bringing me much joy and perspective right now. Krista has included brief weekly reflections and points to ponder with plenty of blank space for journaling freely. I’ll definitely buy the journal for other seasons as they come.Amazon Customer
52 Mondays: one for each Monday of the year
52 Mondays is a series of four pretty, soft-cover journals offering a seasonal reflection (and lovely art!) to start off each week with new food for thought and a hearty dose of hope & encouragement. My Seasonal Mindfulness Journals are not dated.
Each of the weekly reflections (13 per seasonal journal) offers 3 prompts that invite you to “pause + consider” along with 8 dotted pages to sketch/doodle, journal your thoughts, or washi-tape in small seasonal treasures. Or, you may choose to use it as your bullet or gratitude journal.
They’re light enough to keep in your bag to pull out when you have a few minutes here and there or you might keep it by your bed and make it part of your daily rhythm.
The Winter Journal was published only a few weeks after the death of my son when I was raw, numb, and trying to remember how to breathe. I’ve chosen to update the journal in May 2022 to feel a bit lighter and more reflective of my overall voice and vision.
↠ Please be careful to buy the right journal as someone made knock-offs of them.
I want you to know that you are touching lives all of the time, in profound and deep ways. Your beautiful seasonal journals are insightful and uplifting, a beautiful reminder of our connection to nature and the natural flow of life that is always present. I so appreciate what you have created. You have not only touched my life but these journals have been the perfect gift for friends and family.Pamela
The Spring Session
The Summer Session
The Autumn Session
The Winter Session*uPDATED MAY 2022
It is roughly a year since I started working with your first 52 Mondays journal and today I have completed them all (for the first but not last time!). This week’s final one for me from the Spring Session was ‘Freedom’ and it really resonates deep inside after the journey I have been on over the past 18 months or so. Your 52 Mondays provided a regular focus and purpose to ‘feel better’ on the very worst of days and darkest of times. Slow and steady, one small step then another. I am on my new way. You truly are an inspiration and a life saver in many ways that you may never know. Thank you so much.E.P.
How to use the 52 Mondays Seasonal Mindfulness Journals
There is no “perfect starting time” for each seasonal journal and depending on where you live in the world your sense of when each season begins can vary. Start each journal when it feels best to you but one option is to use the following schedule if you live in the northern hemisphere:
- Spring Session: Start at the vernal equinox (about March 21): day and night of equal length, marking the start of spring
- Summer Session: Start at summer solstice (June 20 or 21): longest day of the year, marking the start of summer
- Autumn Session: Start at autumnal equinox (about September 23): day and night of equal length, marking the start of autumn
- Winter Session: Start at winter solstice (December 21 or 22): shortest day of the year, marking the start of winter

I have enjoyed your 52 Monday Season series and just finished the Winter book up. This is such a wonderful, thought-provoking series and it speaks right to my heart. Your words feed my soul and provide guidance and healing on my journey.Jill McGuire
GO DEEPER INTO A PRAcTICE OF SEASONAL LIVING
There are many layers of seasonal living – many ways to explore, experiment, or play with this practice. For instance, seasonal living helps us tune into and make peace with the climatic season we’re in. We might also explore how to leverage the creative season we’re in, learn to track mood and energy through lunar tracking, or practice self-acceptance through enlarging our understanding of where we’re at in our overall life cycle. And there’s more.
For the past 15 years I’ve woven a practice of Seasonal Living into my life and it’s had a significant positive impact on how I show up to my work, how I honour my wiring, how I navigate the incredibly hard seasons of life while living rooted and resilient, and how I spend my days.
If you find this intriguing, I invite you to work with me more deeply through my Seasonal Mindfulness Journals, in the Brave + Beautiful Membership Community, or receive individualized support through private coaching. We’ll take these ideas and turn them into practical action.
I hope you’ll enjoy my Seasonal Mindfulness Journals and this overview of the Layers of Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn (free when you subscribe). I give you a peek into some of the layers you might use to identify the season(s) you’re in – because we can be in different seasons in different aspects of our life – and then identify what you need in order to live fully present, whole, and brave exactly where you are.
I love this journal! The prompts are super helpful for those of us that love the idea of journaling but feel crippled with the pressure of what to write. The writings that the author has included are so lovely.M.N.B.
