Have you ever wondered how different life would be if we all held ourselves 100% accountable for our own actions?

If we took a moment to appreciate the little things more? If we just kept our lives and thoughts in perspective? Or if every day we took a moment to reflect on our day, the good, the bad and the indifferent? And wouldn’t it be amazing if we wrote it all down every day to keep ourselves present so that we may grow and improve!

This is what journaling is to me! And I think the world would be a better place if every child was taught this as a life lesson in school!

I have read many amazing scientific papers on the power of various forms of journaling and my own practice has evolved over the years.

Here is my current ‘best version’ of journaling.

Sometimes it is every night and sometimes only a couple of times per week but I currently have a 5 step journaling process where I write on each of the following:

  1. Joy - one thing I saw or felt today that brought me joy.

  2. Kindness - one act of kindness I performed, received or observed today.

  3. Learned - one thing I learned today.

  4. Gratitude - one thing or one person I am grateful for today.

  5. Reflection - one thing I did well today and one thing I could have done better!

This journaling habit is still a work in progress for me but when I do this journaling method I feel like I am being conscious & present and I am moving forward as a person!

And if we are not learning & growing… we are dying!
