Hey guys. I feel like every time I’m writing it’s a new month. Happy New month people! So, April is here with us. March just marched out.
I promised you guys this bonus read on type of journals. If you haven’t read the previous post on journals, click here.
Let’s dive right into it. Before you say it’s too much work. You can get these in form of apps. If you are not a fan of old fashion pen and paper writing.
1. Gratitude journal
This is one of my favorites. This type of journal has you writing down at least three things you are grateful for at the end of each day. It cultivates a happier attitude and spirit of being thankful. Sometimes life hits us hard and it’s so hard to see the good in anything. If you are trying to be more positive this is the journal for you. You train yourself to find the good in an awful day, the good in people, generally the good in life.
2. Morning pages
Here you can write anything from what you expect to get done before the day ends, how you woke up feeling, ideas you slept on. It’s very random and allows you to process your morning thoughts as you put them down on paper.
3. The goal journal
We had goals set when the year started. We have new milestones we have to achieve. Now, I picked this from a Nancie Mwai the YouTube content creator. She said she picks like few major segments she wants to work on, then break them down into smaller short-term goal. For example, education. Let’s say you want to improve your grades. You can write down the grade you are working towards then break it down to simple steps you can work on day in day out towards your goals.
4. Ideas journal
Mostly useful to creative people, content creators, innovators, writers, lyricists, business people, marketers the list goes on. The brain is usually very active throughout the day and one may see or hear something that triggers an idea that could be helpful to the company or to their blog. These ideas could easily escape the mind if not written down. Most of the time we are preoccupied with other things and might forget the little ideas that light our brains every once in a while.
5. Curiosity journal
For all the questions you have throughout the day. Topics you need to look into. For example, while working on your school project, you might have a lot of questions about the topic to be able to fully grasp the concept of your work. This will help you keep track of what you don’t know and need to know. It can be diverse or specific your choice.
6. Bullet journal
For lists. The make it way easier to create to do lists, grocery lists, write down ideas.
7. Food journal
Helpful if you are watching calorie intake. If you want to try new recipes and have to write them down.
8. Prayer journal
For the deeply spiritual people. You can write down what you are praying for and after you feel it is fulfilled put a line across it. At times it may seem like nothing is happening but with time you’ll start seeing the blessings and now you can literally count your blessings.
Blessed week ahead.
