So as I previously mentioned I was in a funk for a good part of March and April, my routine got thrown off and now it’s May! Time to get my sh*t together and back on track. I have gotten back into going to yoga (this is good), I’ve gotten out on my new bike several times (have I mentioned I LOVE my new bike?) and now I need to get back to writing in a journal.
I love keeping a journal and I’ve been lazy for more than the past few months. My goal for May is to write in my journal everyday for one month. Once I get back in the habit it’s something I will just do everyday, this is what I’m hoping will happen.
What do I write in my journal? This is the question I get the most. Really anything I want. Somedays I just set a timer and free write whatever comes into my mind. This is how I’m going to start May. I will set a timer for ten minutes (you can set a timer for as long as you want but a lot comes out in ten minutes). It’s always interesting to do this and then see what comes out. The trick is to just write and not think. Don’t guide your thoughts, just let them flow. Often it can be surprising what comes out.
I’ve figured out problems, come up with goals, babbled on incessantly, spewed out a bunch of garbled thoughts but usually somewhere in there is a gem. It’s a good way to get the ball rolling.
May brings a new beginning, a new journal and a goal to write for ten minutes. Sounds like a good start to me!
