How to Keep a Well Being Journal

By Doreene Clement

Within the pages of a Well Being Journal or diary, you can record and track what serves and provides for you, and what does not. Whether you already keep a journal or want to start a Well Being Journal, it is an amazing, supportive tool that you can give to yourself.

A WBJ is an easy, simple and rewarding way to record and track your spiritual, emotional and physical journey. It has been proven that keeping a journal provides and supports in so many ways:

  • Reduces stress
  • Organizes and helps focus
  • Helps with setting and maintaining goals and resolutions
  • The routine and habit of journaling means making time for you
  • Can better understand and accept yourself and others
  • Can compare and explore the times of your life
  • Creates a good personal reminder
  • Provides personal growth and freedom
  • Records and tracks business, personal or financial
  • Becomes a treasured keepsake, a written scrapbook

To start your WBJ you can use a notebook, blank book or a journal. You can also use your computer to record either your daily or weekly thoughts. If you keep a journal you can add this idea to what you are already doing.

To start your WBJ, date the entry and then ask yourself how you felt today. What was the most important feeling for you today? But, answer that question with only one word, i.e., happy, sad, angry, confused, joyful, excited, anxious, worried, sick, numb, afraid, lost, grateful, etc. After you have your one word for the day, write that word in your journal. Then, with a different colored pen write your answer to the question, why?

For example if you choose angry, ask yourself, "Why do I feel angry?" Then, journal that answer. On some days you may have more than one word, one experience with its feelings to journal, so journal each separately.

Next, in a third color of pen, journal what you learned from your experience. What did that experience give to you? What did that experience teach you? What was your lesson?

Remember to set your journal where you will see it every day: On your kitchen table, on your desk, in your briefcase or by your night stand. Also, skipping a day or days is okay and is a part of keeping a journal.

Remember to tell yourself the truth. This is your journal and it is a relative reflection of your experiences. Whatever you write is perfect.
