By preparing for each day and week ahead. Also writing done ideas for the present and future. Plus thought about what I'm accomplishing during each day
I’ve kept a journal since 2006 and use my journaling time to keep it updated. The journal is used to recap what happened during the day. It’s always used to destreza
I always make sure to write 3 things which I am grateful for. And the rest depends on the day. I usually try to be a bit creative and doodle around the edges or add some stickers. Some days I treat it like a diary, other times I treat it like a friend who listens. But there is no doubt a positive connection with the pages.
I use the app Jour, plus I will use the option with this app to write what’s on my mind, whatever that happens to be at that moment. The app Jour gives 3 journaling prompt questions and I answer those questions. I also use my journaling time to answer journaling prompt questions I’ve collected from Pinterest. I was also using that time for this apps mental agility challenge.
In the morning, I write everything that I can remember about my dreams. It doesn't have to be in order. I aim for longhand but sometimes go to shorthand if the thoughts come quickly. At night, I write about moments or thoughts about my day. Again, the order isn't important, it's getting the thoughts down.

Sometimes I lose motivation to write event though it’s one of the things I enjoy doing the most. When I journal I’ll either start small talking about my day and sometimes that grows into something deeper, how I feel about my day. This can help me write longer because as I write I am reminded of new things, thoughts I’ve had recently or ideas of future endevers or goals 🙂
- 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?
- Do you always journal in the same place? Or do you carry it with you?
- 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?
