I already Journal but not with bullets. My life is not that busy so I have time to do the long method of hand writing. So I do not use symbol short cuts. Although doing so is much fun. Many people also use face symbols to describe their moods instead of many or few words. These symbolizing shortcuts reminds me of taking shorthand in high school for business, legal, or medical secretary which uses the same principles for quick writing. The only problem that occurs is, after much use, when in conversations, we start thinking of symbols representing words used in descriptions.
I did but my lists got too long and I found it discouraging if I didn’t get enough done bc it is so productivity based. And decorative people made me feel inadequate. I like this fabulous thing. Write a list and pick three. Sometimes the biggest priority takes all day and I don’t get anything else done, but if I get that really big thing done at least I feel good about that (usually the one I put off). I’m getting better at prioritizing too.
- 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?
