Good moments journal is about starting and ending each day with intention can be easier than one may think. Taking time to write in your journal can be so beneficial to the mind, body and soul. The world opens to us when we live in a space of gratitude. The universe glows a bit more brightly and showers us with more blessings when we are appreciative and when we express our appreciation.
Journaling helps you to start the day on a high note, rather than immediately reaching for your phone to start scrolling, and it ends the day with a moment of gratitude for all that happened.
Gratitude is the heart’s memory!
Hi, I’m Donna Williams, Certified Holistic Health Coach. Creator of info-on-high-blood-pressure.com, where I teach and guide women of color how to lower their high blood pressure naturally without giving up their favorite foods.
Some days it's easier to be appreciative of life than on other days. But if you really look back over your day, there is always something to be grateful for. So how do we implement these good moments to journal or opportunities to improve our lives?
There are a couple of options, and of course, you can also create something unique that works for you.
Every so often, it's enriching to take a deliberate pause from the hustle and dive deep into the archives of our past. Dedicate an evening to relive memories: sift through old photos, re-read journal entries, or dust off forgotten keepsakes. These tangible fragments of our history tell tales of triumphs, lessons, love, and adventures. They're markers of where we've been.
As you reflect on your journey, acknowledge your growth and the experiences that have shaped you. Feel gratitude for the memories that warm your heart and find strength in overcoming the challenges. Remember the past dreams, see how many have come to fruition, and perhaps reignite those unfulfilled.
To start I’d like you to create good moments journal morning routine, as something you enjoy, whether it's reading, or for this occasion...writing in your journal. Such moments of introspection are not just about nostalgia but also about recognizing the bridges you've crossed and celebrating the person you've become. So, set aside a date with your past and let your story inspire you.
Not only will this help you start your day on the right foot, but it will also give you something to look forward to each morning.
First, grab a journal and dedicate it to an AM and PM intention and gratitude routine. I have three different types of journaling that I do.
I love and use all three journals according to my mood, or whichever one I’m drawn to at the time of my journaling.
To get you started you could:
Here are some of the things I write:
Know that to simply give thanks on a daily basis is transformative. You can journal weekly, if daily is too much for you, but all you need to be is consistent.
If you're more spur of the moment, try cutting up small pieces of paper and tossing happy moments into a jar as you experience them.
I love the tangible aspect of a happy moments jar because it's so easy to go back and be reminded of all of the good you've experienced. Whether it's big ("I got the job!") or small ("my jog really great today."), it all matters because this is what makes up our life as a whole.
This is an easy way to focus on the positive more throughout our days, weeks, months, and years. We want to look back and see a life that we are grateful for, and this is a small way of doing that.
Also, I would like to give you a gift.
