Easy Prompts for a Gratitude and Intention Setting Journal

Easy Prompts for a Gratitude and Intention Setting Journal

As a therapist, yogi, and just a human who has done it before, I know that journaling is a great habit to create. Keeping a consistent journal is a great way to process thoughts and emotions, improve mood, express and discover creativity, and more. We all have seen a million articles on it, too, from the benefits to how to do it. With that comes a million ways to do your journal. You can keep a daily log of your accomplishments, practice gratitude, use writing prompts, free flow your thoughts down on paper…the list goes on.

So, in an attempt to get back into journaling, I decided recently to challenge myself to do some simple journaling every day. It literally only takes about 5-10 minutes from my day, and I’ve noticed a pretty big shift in my mood and increase in productivity since doing so.

The Power of Doing Things Now

The Power of Doing Things Now

Hello Beautiful Souls,

How many of you are guilty of putting things off, saying oh, I'll do that later? I certainly am! Just pushing things aside, saying we can do it tomorrow, is super easy to do, but what affect does that have on our tomorrow? Honestly, I've found that putting things off just continues to build and build until I've put off a million things for a month (sometimes more), and now I have a huge problem to deal with. 

The bigger issue here, aside from there being a messy house or some dirty dishes, is that this can easily lead to us putting off our dreams and aspirations. For me, blogging fell into this category for awhile. The work I thought I would need to put into it and the fear of others reading my thoughts and words allowed me to keep putting off writing, until I realized I wasn't doing something that could have tremendous benefit.
