Daily journaling is super powerful-it’s a really good habit to get into and also very useful for helping us clear clutter out of our way and make space for new changes.
But we need to make sure we are using it in a practical way. My Life Edit programme contains lots of specific writing exercises, questions and prompts to keep us on track, focussed and moving forward.
If you have been thinking about starting a daily journaling routine but haven’t quite got there yet, then follow my four step quick start plan below to start seeing results and move from average to awesome-fast!
This is a simple way to make sure your daily writing practice really starts to support your plans for the future:
- Write down your goals but also write down and describe in detail how you will feel and how your life will change when you get there.
- Why is this goal important to you?
- Why will it change your life?
- What is inspiring to make these changes?
Then start to write down all the steps that you need to take to get you there. Of course this may change as you work through the process, but by planning ahead, visualising success, and really starting to describe on paper the impact of these changes, you will strengthen your resolve to keep moving forward and you are less likely to succumb to distraction, your inner critic or the fact that you are just too busy to make any changes.
