Journaling Basics

Why is journaling so important.

Effective journaling is a journaling practice that helps you meet your goals, create your life on purpose and with intention, heal, and will improve your quality of life. This can look different for each and every person, and the outcomes can vary widely, but they are almost always very positive. So, why not get started!

Journaling is just the tip of the iceberg of a healthy Self Perception and your Self Perception (what you think and feel about you) dictates everything in your life.  The chances you take, the choices you make, the relationships you stay in personally and professionally, and the ones you leave because you know that you are worth more.

So let's do this... You have control and you are limitless.  It is your time to shine and we are here to help you with that journey.

Gratitude Journaling

Jot down every single morning what you are grateful for. At least 5 things and go further, if you can. Even on the toughest of days, journaling for gratitude will have positive effects.  

Are you breathing? Can you walk?  Are you reading this? Do this every. single. day. You will begin to see your life flow in a direction with more to be grateful for.

Intuitive flowing

Pour everything that is on your mind out onto the paper everyday… No holding back.

But it can not stop there... Stopping on a negative note will not bring positive results.

From there, circle the things out that are negative. And switch them over to a positive to make your very own daily affirmations. For Example: I never have enough money... Switch over: I always have enough money flowing in from expected and unexpected places and it feels amazing!

Habit Journaling

There are "good" habits and there are "bad" habits.  The so-called "bad" habits are what lead to self-sabotage. The great thing about this is that you have control over changing your habits.  You can see already how this can lead to a happier, healthier life. Write down everything that you do routinely every day. Circle the ones that are getting you to your desired life, are good for you, and make you feel better. Add ones that you feel that would benefit you. Circle those too.

Anything that is not circled, see if there is a healthy alternative, or can you get rid of it. 

Every day after you have written the things you are grateful for, check-in on your habits. Little steps in a healthy direction will lead to great results. 

The Best Day Ever

We all daydream at some point.  That is a great thing when it's all about what makes you feel good and happy inside.  So, take this further.  Write down the best day ever. You can have anything and do anything. Without any limits, what would your best day ever look like?  Remember NOTHING is holding you back, not time, not money, not circumstances, not location, not people.  This is just you and you can bring anything or any type of person into it with you.  If it doesn't feel good, it's not in your perfect day.

Every day write down what you are grateful for then write your perfect day. The energies you put out make all of the difference in your day. And Yes, you are in control of that.
