Inside: 52 Mondays is a series of Seasonal Mindfulness Journals designed to help you mine for the wisdom and beauty in every season of your life. My journals are sold in Amazon shops worldwide. This post includes referral links.
The 52 Mondays series is an invitation to live seasonally and mindfully. It is a set of four seasonal journals that invite you to lean into the literal/climatic season you’re in and even more importantly, the emotional season you’re in. In either case, my hope is that they will help you live fully present and mine for the wisdom and beauty in every season.
Whatever corner of the world you live in, you can enjoy my journals and begin each season when it makes sense for you!
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.
52 Mondays: one for each (happy) 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. The 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.
➽ Please be careful to buy the right journal as someone made knock-offs of them.
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

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.

About the Winter Session ❄️
All proceeds from my winter journal help fund an art scholarship in my son, Jairus’ name. Jairus left this world Oct 23, 2019, at 23 years of age. Profits from products using Jairus’ Poprock characters (a game he was creating) will also fund the scholarship – click here to check out the shop.
Writing these journals unexpectedly served as a life-line for me as I walked my son through the final months of his life. I would not have kept going without the collaboration and support of my fabulous friend, Betsy Huggins. THANK YOU to everyone who has donated or purchased a winter journal; I am deeply grateful for your support.
This is such a wonderful, thought-provoking journal. It speaks right to my heart. Thank you, Krista. Your words provide guidance and healing on my journey.Jill McGuire
How to use the 52 Mondays Journal Series
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
