Today’s Journal Prompt: Revise/Revision
How is January going?
How do you feel about the progress you’ve been making on your goals?
Here are some supportive things to remember.
1. Write it down
Having a journaling practice is a great way to take breaks that won’t distract you from your goals. Journaling also helps you refuel mentally.
2. Daydream more
Being able to see yourself on the other side of your goal’s finish line is a great motivator. If you are feeling distracted from your action items, take a break and spend some time daydreaming.
3. Slip-ups do not equal failure
Sometimes we do great completing action items towards our goals; other times we slip-up. Instead of equating a slip-up with failure, (a) focus on how much time you spent, (b) how you were feeling, and (c) what you were doing during this slip-up. Look for the lesson and then practice positive self-talk and self-compassion.
4. Write a bold pep talk
Replenish yourself so you can transform and achieve your goals. Write a pep talk that’s at least 200 words. In the pep talk – confront your fears, identify your supporters, ask for help, restate your goal, and decide your next move to get back to working on your goals.
