So far, since I just started journaling, I typically just write about what I want my goals to be the next day and then later I reflect on those goals to see if I should do less, more or different things than I did the day before. I've tried writing things that don't work and saying to myself or writing to myself that I won't do that again, hoping that I learn from my "mistakes." I'll also jot down any good ideas I had that day that I want to remember for later.
I'm just a beginner on my journey of journaling but this is how I've chosen to do it for now. We'll see how this evolves!
I write my long term and short term goals, as well as a daily note of gratitude. I also write affirmations that are empowering and encouraging.
I don’t really see a way to prepare r motivate myself for tricky times through writing, because writing for me is an outlet for emotional distress that already exists.

I write whatever comes to mind. What I did on the day or the day before, what i want to, what i am feeling, what's bothering me, something nice that happened… basically anything that comes in my head.
- 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 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?
- What media do you use to journal? How do you persist?
