I try to write every day. Sometimes it's hard. It's like nothing is going on in my head and I don't wanna just write about my day. I wanna write about my thoughts that day.
I write every weekday with breaks on the weekends. I find it helps not to stress about getting my writing done. Weekends are meant to relax and be stress free. And usually weekdays I’m busy during the day. Plenty of time for writing in the evening. Weekends are spent, for me, at different times, depending on the event. Less time to worry about writing. I find this works for me, but try different Strategies. Try writing everyday and if it doesn’t work..try something else! Thanks!
When I feel like I don't have the spoons to write or that I have nothing to write about, I still write one sentence to the effect of "The useless days will add up to something".
- How to get yourself to write in your journal on days when you are really in a rut and can’t even get out of bed to write?

- What do you tend to write about in your journal, to motivate yourself for tricky times?
- What do you write day to day?
- How to make it a routine task?
- How has this habit helped you?
- I’m stacking multiple journals at the moment – activity’s- 💤 sleep- diet- exercise- not sure 🤔 if that’s over doing it but it seem the phone 📱 does a lot of the “heavy lifting” recording everything?? then I just comb over the top of everything at the end of the day…not sure my strategy is functional??
- Do you write anything about your food habits?
- I typically use my journal inner reflection and CBT, but I don’t always have something related to either to write about every day. What else could I write about to make journaling a daily habit?
- Do you find that going over past journal entries is helpful for you? Or is more of a ‘write it down once and never look back’ kind of process worth exploring?
