"I LOVE MY JOURNAL!!!!! Thank you again. You made it so easy to write with all the prompts! Love the quotes for each day. Such great timing as with zoom school the first grade teacher I work with does a list of daily affirmations with the kids every day and I had been trying to remember to start my day with an affirmation! Now I won't forget!"
Let's face it--there's nothing more frustrating than chronically stressing, only to feel like you're just plain stressed and never actually calm and able to relax. And there's nothing more disheartening than committing to "self-care days"--only to find that taking so much time and spending a bunch of money only adds to your stress.
You know that you should be developing a habit of journaling. Maybe you've even tried a few journals.
And yet, it's not quite working.
Blank notebooks are a challenge. Where do you begin? Do you just write what happened that day? Doesn't it just contribute to stress to sit there for an hour, pen in hand, trying to figure out what to write about? Then, there are journals with weird prompts that aren't helpful at all. You're stressed, you don't need to write about your favorite color in second grade. You need something to help you feel better as you write it, and something that will cheer you up when you look back on it later. Of course, there's the time issue too. Who has time to sit down and write in a journal for an hour every day? It sounds like a good idea in theory, but come on. And supposedly, journaling is better for stress relief when done in a calming environment. Well, most of the comfiest areas in the house don't have a table set up. So, now you're dealing with a soft-cover journal and no hard surface to write on.
Other people make it look easy. But for you, it's been anything but. You thought that the hard part was going to be making up your mind to journal, but as it turns out, that was only just the beginning. And now you feel like you must be missing something.
And you're not alone. Most women are.
The truth is that having a journaling habit is a game changer, one that will help reduce your stress, begin your day on a positive note, and even improve your relationships.
The problem? Knowing what to write about, weird prompts, and lack of time often make achieving a stress-reducing journaling habit more trouble than it's worth.
But what if there was a way to make sure you got it right?
Until recently, I was under intense chronic stress for all of my adult life. I understand stress on a very deep level. It's been a huge part of my life and has even caused physical medical issues. The most difficult part of major stressful events is that there is no end in sight.
For example, for 20 months, my father-in-law was hospitalized. Most days, we would go to see him and his condition wasn’t any worse, but it also wasn’t any better. The doctors always had hope that he would make a recovery, but they also assured us it would be slow. For the better part of two years, our lives were in limbo and it felt like this would be the way we would live forever. Until one day, the end came out of nowhere and he passed. Of course there was grief to deal with, but we also suddenly had our lives under our own control for what felt like the first time.
What I’m trying to say is, everything is temporary. Anything you may be dealing with in your own life is temporary and it will end someday. Your job is to hang on, enjoy the ride to the best of your ability, and look forward to that inevitable day where you can look back and tell the story of how you endured it.
There’s a lot of crap out there about handling stress with spa days and daily bubble baths and clay masks. That stuff is great so long as the extra time it takes doesn’t add to your stress.
My best stress-relief techniques were more simple: spending time with friends and family (especially laughing) as much as possible, journaling about what was going on and how I was feeling about it all on a regular basis, light exercise and making the time to get enough sleep.
"I absolutely LOVE my journal, I love how the quotes at the top of the page can be applied to both mental and physical health, and the extras like what the weather is and the affirmations."
The Healthy Motivated Life Journal is a beautiful journal, designed to help you notice the good in your life and take a small amount of time for yourself each day, so that you can get back to enjoying improved relationships, better quality sleep and higher energy throughout the day.
The Healthy Motivated Life Journal was originally created to help women achieve stress reduction because I've been there, and so far several women are seeing lowered stress after nurturing their new journaling habit.
If you are a stressed out woman, or if you're looking for a way to motivate yourself toward your life goals, this is an opportunity that I promise you will not want to miss.
"THANK YOU for reminding me what is really important!"
After using these exact journal prompts in my quick, dedicated daily journaling time, I felt more energized and ready to take on my day.
Focusing on the positive in your life, even for just a few minutes a day can drastically reduce stress. According to the Mayo Clinic, "having a positive outlook enables you to cope better with stressful situations, which reduces the harmful health effects of stress on your body."
Setting aside a little time each day to focus on what in your life you feel grateful for can help you cope with stress, both the major life stress and even the day-to-day little stressors. By practicing gratitude daily, you'll become better at recognizing the good in your life, even during the more challenging times.
Regular self-affirmation reduces anxiety and stress while also keeping us open to the concept of continued self-improvement. Maintaining a routine of telling yourself (or writing down) encouraging words reduces stress by helping you to achieve your goals, overcome fears, and live out your life's purpose.
"It is such a great journal! Love mine!!!!"
The Healthy Motivated Life Journal includes 2-4 months of daily journaling pages, depending upon how you choose to use it. For two months of daily journaling, there is a full spread for each day, with a daily motivational quote and prompts for the weather, positive memories, gratitude, affirmations, plans to work toward goals daily, and more than a page of blank space to add anything else that's on your mind. Or, if you would like the journal to last for a full four months of daily journaling, you can use the prompts every other day and the blank space on the opposite days.

Are you looking for something small to add to your daily routine that won't take more than a few minutes to bring lasting and life-changing results? Then, the Healthy Motivated Life Journal is for you.
This is where the prompts come into play! I've been journaling regularly for 5 years now and when I first started, looking at a blank notebook was just plain intimidating. Prompts helped me to think of the little moments I wanted to write down to remember or look back on fondly later. They helped me to think of the good in my life and the good in myself. Once I started responding to the prompts, the words began to flow and I found myself needing more and more space for journaling.
Positive self-affirmations can feel uncomfortable when beginning the practice. This is your opportunity to "toot your own horn," your chance to remind yourself of what you're doing well and what you like about yourself. Because what you think of yourself matters so much more than what anyone else thinks and your relationship with yourself needs to be nurtured. The book, The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod is an excellent resource to learn more about affirmations.
