Now that the holiday festivities are almost over, many of you likely received some beautiful new journals for the holidays, and we are here to make sure that you put them to use.
1. Create a Monthly Layout
Use some of your journal pages to create a monthly layout so that your journal can not only double your calendar but you can also easily bullet point your to-do items and essential appointments in your journal.
2. Create a Savings Goals Thermometer
Saving and taking control of your finances should be on everyone's agenda. Determine your savings goals for 2019 and create a thermometer in your journal to keep track of your goal. Being able to visualize important goals such as financial goals is key to success.
3. Create a Workout Tracker
If 2019 is the year where you want to take your health and fitness to the next level, what better way to motivate yourself than by keeping a workout tracker. Make 10 bullet points of WHY you want to be a healthier you and then create one line for each week of the month. Every week, visit your workout tracker and enter how many times you did some physical activity during the week.
4. Personal Compliments Tracker
There is no doubt that we all have gloomier days and sometimes we are a little too hard on ourselves. A great way to overcome days where you may not be feeling the greatest is to create a compliments tracker in your journal. How does it work? Every time someone compliments you, enter the date and the compliment that was provided. If ever you find yourself feeling down or going through a rather difficult time, visit your personal compliments tracker.
5. A weekly Self-Care Planner
Everyone needs self-care, no matter who you are and what you do for work, self-care is one of the most important gifts that you can give yourself. Create a weekly self-care planner where you will add scheduled "me" time. This could be anything ranging from some spa time to going for a run to making sure that you visit your doctor if you aren't feeling your best.
6. New Idea Tracker
