Woah! Where did the time go?
I can’t believe we’re at the time of year I said I’d start working on January’s Journal Series!
If you missed it, earlier this year I released a free, 30-day journal series; packed full of prompts, tools, meditations, and ideas on re-connecting with yourself- for those times you feel off-track and need some insight and structure to get back to where you want to be again-
And although I’d actually created it just for me, I had so much fun putting it together, I ended up re-vamping the entire thing into a guided journal prompt e-book that both of us could enjoy!
Since this years was about cultivating a deeper mindfulness and awareness of yourself- I’m thinking, maybe, next years focus could be on self-love? Taking some time out in our day to appreciate ourselves, our life, and all the things we do to keep it going-
I don’t know, what do you think?
Anyway… Series or not, there’s never a better moment than right now to remember to take a little time in appreciating ourselves! So grab your journals, and let’s settle in for some self-love time!
#1: What are 3 things you appreciate about yourself?
Go deeper with: Why do you appreciate these things about yourself? Why are these qualities so important to you?
#2: What are 3 things you appreciate about your life?
Go deeper with: Why do you appreciate these things? What is it about them that makes them so special to you?
#3: List all the little things you love about life in general:
For instance: The smell of a freshly brewed coffee from your favourite cafe, the sun-light peeking through the curtains and warming your room in a morning…
Go deeper with: Getting really descriptive- bonus points for taking a moment to imagine these things before writing them down!
#4: What makes you feel good about yourself?
Go deeper with: Why do these things make you feel this way? What is it about them that makes them so special?
#5: What do you need, to feel supported and nourished throughout your day?
For instance: I need x amount of hours rest, or a five minute break to myself…
Go deeper with: How do you currently support these needs? Do you think how you fulfil them is unhealthy, or healthy toward your overall well being in the long-run? Why?
(You can find all these prompts- well, variants of them, in the 30-day Journal Series!)
And remember, you don’t have to do these all in one go! If you’re pressed for time today- every day, you can screenshot (or pin) the list below and try doing just one a day! You can even keep coming back to them multiple times throughout that day too as and when things float through your mind!
