If you’re ready to grow personally and professionally, try this simple practice

If you’ve been with me a while, you know that I am a huge fan of journaling. Without a doubt, this super simple practice has helped me calm my busy mind, foster my creativity, and stay organized. It has brought so much to my personal and professional life that I can’t even imagine what things would be like if I didn’t do it every day. 

But here’s the thing — journaling, just like anything, is a practice. You’ve got to commit to it, and you also need to understand that it can take a bit of time to get into a good groove. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat down with every intention of getting all of my thoughts out, only to stare at a blank page for what feels like hours. 

Thanks to the help of some of my mentors and coaches, I’ve got this whole journaling thing down. In this episode, I share exactly what I do to set myself up for success, tame any negative thoughts that come up while I’m writing, and make sure I get the most out of this powerful practice.

Tune in to hear: 

  • How I set up my daily journaling routine, and why I set it up this way
  • Questions and prompts to ask yourself when you’re not sure what to write about
  • How to normalize judgemental thoughts you might have when writing 
  • Ways to neutralize your language when you’re letting it all out
  • What to do if you find negative thoughts spiraling out of control while journaling

By the time you’re done listening to this episode, you’ll have a whole new approach to journaling — one that helps you be more productive, positive, and kinder to yourself.

Here’s a glance at this episode…

  • [02:28] Journaling is a part of my start-up ritual. I do it everyday Monday thru Friday, because it's so incredibly important to get the thoughts out of my head and onto paper.
  • [05:48] You have to set yourself up for success. That's why I commit to 10 minutes a day (and I want you to join me!)
  • [07:21] The Four N's journaling technique. Notice what you're thinking about. Normalize your thinking. Neutralize all of the inflammatory language. What's my Next best thought?
  • [12:32] Look at your calendar and schedule 10 minutes to work through this process. I move directly into meditation and journaling before my day gets away from me.
  • [13:50] Take out your journal, and write down the Four N's on the inside cover. Notice, Normalize, Neutralize, and Next.
