Sticky Note Journal Week 1

OK, it is week 1 of the Sticky Note Journaling Series.   This week your goal is to write everyday on one sticky note 5 things you are grateful for.   It can be simple such as a great cup of coffee for breakfast or something bigger.   Don’t think too much about it.  Just let it flow.   So, at the end of the week, you could potentially have 35 things you are grateful for.   And, oh, you can repeat things from previous days.
You can choose to keep the sticky note or tear it into shreds.

Try Sticky Note Journaling

You might remember a couple months ago I asked a survey question on FB about why you hate journaling.  I got great feedback.  I promised that I would introduce you to journaling slow and easy.  You might even grow to like it.

Here is my journaling plan for you.

It is called Sticky Note Journaling.  Each week will have a theme.  Each day you will write your answers to that week’s theme question on a sticky note, napkin, corner of newspaper, whatever, but preferably a sticky note pad.  The answers should be simple.  Most likely just one or two words.   Doable, right?

Since journaling can be somewhat personal, you can choose to keep the sticky notes, post them on your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, or rip them into shreds.  Also, you do not have to take any action after you complete each day’s question unless that is your desire.  Sounding more appealing?

This will start Monday, April 17th.  If you don’t want to participate, let me know via my email at joan@journalyourwayto.com.

I would love any feedback.

Enjoy!   Joan Marie

Are Daily Routines Important?

My daily routines changed when I retired and it has been difficult for me to manage these new routines.  So, I got to thinking about routines, in general.  Per the dictionary “a routine is a habit or sequence that doesn’t vary.    I thought, hmmm, good question for my weekly FB survey.

Without delay, I asked 1) Do you have routines you do every day?  2) What is the benefit? 3) Is there a negative aspect?

Here are the results:
