goals habits journal May 27, 2024

There is an adage that says how you do anything is how you do everything. Translated this means that habits are the surest indicator of outcomes. The generally accepted truth about habits is they take 21 days to develop. Doing something over and over again for 21 days accounts for the mindset shift that needs to happen to integrate the behavior into our everyday lives. Little by little what once was foreign becomes routine.  

Here are 21 tips to develop your journaling habit: 

  1. Don’t rush it 
  2. Have great tools 
  3. Be present when you journal 
  4. Be consistent with the time you journal 
  5. Commit to the practice of journaling 
  6. Get inspiration from nature 
  7. Share your enthusiasm for journaling with others 
  8. Find a community that loves to journal 
  9. Find a favorite place to journal 
  10. Enjoy your favorite drink when you journal 
  11. Use a special seat for journaling 
  12. Set aside time with your child to journal together

As with all things you have to want to develop the habit in order to create it. Ask yourself why you want to journal and how you believe life will be enriched for having done it. Discover what motivates you and make that motivation part of your routine.  

The first time you try something new you will likely be awkward. It will take longer than it ought to and feels unnatural. Sticking to the routine creates mastery which means things are effortless and the results come easy. Keep at your journaling and you will see the effort is easy and the outcomes better than ever.
