While I’ve been away from my blog for a little bit, one of the things I spent more time doing was journaling. More specifically, digitally journaling.
Journaling has been such a relaxing way for me to create without putting too much pressure on myself. I’ve found it almost therapeutic to sit with my iPad and apple pencil and create scrapbook-style journal pages.
I thought it would be a nice idea to share some of my journal pages here to help you get ideas for your own journal.
Here are some of my digital journal pages:
Do you keep a journal, whether it’s digital or physical?
It’s my 25th birthday today! And what better way to celebrate a birthday than by talking about the things we are grateful for?
Practising gratitude is a great way to help you feel happier in life. I often forget to look on the more positive side and I’m sure many others do too. Life can get in the way and we forget to take a moment to appreciate everything we have.
However, today is my birthday so it’s the perfect time for me to reflect on all the things I’m grateful for.
All I can think about is food. I will go to the local corner shop and buy as much ‘bad’ foods as I can, then I’ll go home and eat until I physically can’t swallow anymore. I’m spending so much money on food yet I never feel fully satisfied.
My relationship with food is confusing. I have all the knowledge I need to know what foods to be eating more or less of, I know all about portion sizes and I even know about macros. However, when I see food, my mind pretends to know nothing and just grabs whatever it can.
As you can probably imagine, this kind of eating pattern has meant that I have gained quite a lot of weight. But I’ll explain more on that soon. Let me just take you back to the beginning quickly.
When 2020 started, I felt like it was a fresh start with a whole bunch of new possibilities. Little did I know, 2020 had a different idea for all of us. This year just really hasn’t been too kind. However, I have decided to look back over the whole 2020/lockdown experience in a more positive way to see what good things have happened so far this year.
So yeah, let’s throw on our positive pants and think about what we are grateful for…
Starting a new month has always been a pretty exciting time for me. I love the idea that a new start is here and I get to reevaluate my life and my goals. Am I making progress on my goals? Are the goals I’ve set still relevant? If the answer is no, then I get to rethink the goals and see how I can keep improving myself and my life.
For those of you who read my last blog post, you’ll know that my life has been changing a lot. Since those changes, I’ve been thinking about my goals even more. So I figured that this would be a perfect time to write a post here all about my July goals.
