I write Everything in my bullet journal! Bc I struggle w my ADD, I forget everything.. so from plans, who I talked to, what I did, tracking goals, diary, appointments, notes/reminders, shopping list, crafts and keeps going. I even have a separate journal for my diabetic helper dog- track his food meds, numbers, recipes.
I write about my day. It might sound silly, but I write about how I woke up, what feelings I'm sitting with. How I feel, what I need to put down so I can continue with my day. Now I write multiple times a day, if a thought comes and it needs to be processed it goes down to paper. Lists about things not to forget, or places I want to visit. The journal is all yours, once you get over the fact that no one is going to read it, or care to read it, you can just write. Let it all out!
- 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?
- 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?
