There are many benefits to journaling. The act of writing down what your brain is thinking helps you visualize it and once you can see something, your brain starts to figure out how to make it happen.
Each day for the next seven days, try answering the following questions in the morning before you start work and in the evening before you wrap up for the day.
How will I (AM – morning)
- Make progress toward my goals
- Find meaning
- Be happy
- Build positive relationships
- Be engaged
How did I do (PM – evening)
- Go back through the list
This is not to beat yourself up for what might not happen each day. This is an opportunity for noticing what you do for when these opportunities arise.
Good luck! You’re welcome to share your musings with me while you journal for better balance and engagement.
