What Is A Mindfulness Journal

Why You Should Write In A Mindfulness Journal

We spend so much time worrying about what might happen in the future and obsessing over things from the past! It is easy to lose sight of what each new day can offer us. Keeping a mindfulness journal helps you focus on your health and fitness goals. Whether you’re working on completing a new training plan, improving your nutrition, or practicing new mental health habits, a mindfulness journal can serve as a reminder.

How To Keep A Mindfulness Journal

Keeping a mindfulness journal doesn’t take a lot of time or effort. In fact, the key to creating new habits is to start small. Set aside 5-10 minutes in the morning to write down your intentions for the day. In the evening, take another 5-10 minutes to reflect on what went well, the challenges you’ve faced, and how you feel. You can also end the day thinking about everything you are grateful for. Although it is very easy to get obsessed with the negative or complicated things in life, practicing gratitude each day can help you attract positive energies and keep an overview of things.

Action, Reaction: How To Practice Mindfulness

If you join the “Action, Reaction” movement, you have probably already set yourself some goals related to mind, body and nutrition that you will be working on for the next few weeks. You can download our template for free in PDF format to keep track of your goals.

To help you get started, you can focus on:

  • The body: go for a 20 minute walk, stretch during your lunch break, or complete one of the new featured workouts
  • The mind: taking a mental break every hour, practicing meditation in the morning or being present in the moment, instead of being aware of what may happen in the future or what happened in the past
  • Nutrition: choose a healthy snack when you have a sweet tooth, drink enough water, or prepare healthy food in advance .
