One of my posts gone missing, I can see it on my feed but not on my blog… Apologies if it’s just me, but here it comes again!
It would not be me if I had not went on investigating further about the “how” of one sentence journalling to uncover different techniques to help structure the task. Here is a quick run down of what I found quite interesting and helpful (as it would allow to take photos to correspond with journalling and hence the scrapbooking later will be easier too)
Topic du Jour
write down on one page 30 areas of your life that you want to pay some attention to. Then, at the end of each day write down one-two sentences analysing the correspondent topic. You may end up writing about your plans, or maybe about a specific problem you’re facing in that area. Or perhaps you will end up just babbling — it doesn’t matter. The important thing is that you’ll be spending those few daily minutes specifically giving attention to what matters in your life. Topics might be: career, relationship with spouse, health, learning, children, money, friends, creativity, etc. At the year’s end you would have journalled about each of these areas 12 times – might be quite interesting to see if there is any development, patterns emerging!
This is journalling in mind map format. This debunks the myth that a journal needs to be a long and verbose piece. You journal can be made of mind maps, drawings or just doodles if you like!
I wonder – what if I combine the two techniques together and mind map my daily journal on a pre-selected topic including photos taken on that day… or if I was to create a mind map for a monthly review and use it as the main photo…
I am getting carried away, aren’t I?:-) But, hey, here is my take on a mind map: a journalling entry from yesterday mind mapped! I used a brief and cool tutorial on how to draw pretty mind maps to create mine.
You suppose to add A Quotation you like every day. These are great for quick pick-me-ups, sparks for writing or just as inspirational focus points. Here’s one to get you started by an unknown author, “”We Do Not Remember Days, We Remember Moments.” Get those moments down.
