The Best Journal to plan your life
A few months ago I was grateful to receive an invite to the Mindful Living Show. I was looking forward to talks on mindfulness and general learning about this new area of exploration. Whilst there I met Wendy the founder of the Note to Self Journal. We had such a great chat and I listened to her story, her passion of creating a journal that did everything she wanted it to.
I was sold on her story that is so similar to mine and many other women I know, the corporate hectic life. Rushing everywhere, not taking care of myself. We had such a good chat about how we had both come up with our businesses.
The Note to Self Journal
And I fell in love with her planner. The Note to Self Journal is such a great journal that ticks every box I need in a daily planner. And believe me I have tried many, and spend lots of money on them. I have spent the money but found that they were not perfectly suited to what I needed from a planner. The Happiness planner for example, I remember spending maybe £40 on that one. This one is going to cost you just £13.49 including the special Mrs Mummypenny discount.
The journal starts with Wendy’s story and it sets up the use of the planner so well. I felt myself nodding at every stage of her story and I wanted to complete this planner. I was then guided into writing a letter to my younger self, to provide me with some personal focus to kick off the journal process.
A new page for each day
Every day you complete the same planner information and I like to look at it first thing in the morning and again last thing at night.
I start each day with my gratitude and write down four things that I am grateful for. I visualise my day and write four things that I will achieve that day. Yes just four things. The intention behind this is four things are achievable. I then write a note to myself for the day. Something apt at the moment would be ‘stop the wallowing, be action orientated and get lots done’
The daily planner also remind me to plan in my meditation and plan in some exercise.
At the end of the day I rate how I did with food, good or bad, water consumption, alcohol and self care. It feels great to reflect back at the end of the day on all of these factors and to tick off my t0-do list.
Each day is blank for the date and I love how you can miss a day and not feel so bad about it. Life happens and sometimes I might miss a day.
A round-up every 30 days
Every 30 days there is a round up so you can look back and recognise things like your biggest success, what habits need more reinforcing and what your commitment levels were like. And then you start again on the next 30 day cycle.
