I used to shutter every time I would hear someone talk about journaling. It made me think about being a child and having my older cousins tease me about having a diary. I’d roll my eyes and say “yeah what ever.” Truth is I wasn’t able to stand the idea of being alone with my thoughts. Now, I have a little perspective on it and realize how important it is to have a place where you can check in with yourself.
I started journaling about ten years ago. I don’t always do it, and there have been times that I have fallen out of the habit, but ever since I started my own business it has become a super important thing that I do (almost) daily so that I can check in with myself, my goals, and have a space to look back and stay aware of goals I want to achieve. We all know that to-do list that gets written over and over again until that one thing on the list just kinda disappears into the universe? Yeah, what ever happened to that job, that person, that email?
Here are 5 things that I have learned while journaling, and some questions you can ask yourself to start your journaling journey.
Are you ready to get started journaling but not sure where to start? Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to start off.
1. What are 5 things you are grateful for today? ( giving gratitude everyday changes your brain.)
2.What goals do you have today? This week? This month? This year?
3. What are you scared of and why?
4. If you had to walk away from your job right now and switch career paths (money/education being no worry) what would you do?
5. When you where a child, what did you think your life would be like right now? What would you tell your 5 year old self if you could write them a letter?
Remember journal writing is fun, and free, and yours!
