Your Daily Journaling Pro-Tip
Do you do journaling? Yes and no, and not consistently. This is what worked better for me.
The baseline for our today conversation: there are undisputable benefits of journaling. Those have been examined and documented through multiple academic studies and clinical trials.
In my lifetime I’ve had numerous attempts of journaling. I discovered that the lack of consistency is mostly associated with that “I am not feeling like writing anything, or There has been nothing special to write about today” thought I would get when attempting to sit down with my notebook.
What I do
To do bulleting of 3 things I am grateful for on a given day
It can be anything from the way something or somebody made me feel, a positive development of the day, brightness of the sun or my ability to do a workout and have a healthy meal at lunch.
I found it extremely therapeutical and uplifting specifically in stressful and chaotic periods of life – when I get an unsettling feeling, when my sleep quality deteriorates – I “prescribe” myself 2-3 weeks of evening journaling of 3 things I am grateful for.
Important – keeping the notebook on bedside table with a pen on hand. Right there, in front of your eyes and head reach – make it easy for yourself.
