Bookmarking My Day with Journaling

The habit I’m longing to cultivate

author’s work

Art note: This page was created after watching a junk journal video by Amanda Random. I think it’s beautiful, whether as a stand-alone page or background.

I’m creating the habit of waking up and writing my top 3 priorities of the day instead of checking my phone. I’m also journaling a free-write for 15 minutes. Both are important: planning and getting your mindset right before the day starts.

At night, I review everything I’ve written down that day. I spend time thinking about what the most constant thoughts and feelings were. I can go on to process those more fully and see if any adjustments need to be made.

Journaling is what grounds me and is one of my most important self-care practices.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
