Everyone should start better habits to improve their mental health and empower themselves. While rest is always a big part of self-care, few think about how important goal-setting can also be for our mental health. That’s something that occurred to me during the free virtual empowerment workshop I attended last March 25.
The event was organized by Blogapalooza in partnership with Viviamo. Our guest speaker that day was Darlyn Ty-Nilo, founder of Viviamo and the Belle De Jour Power Planner. I found her speech very impactful, and it made me think about how everyone should try journaling for mental health. Read on to learn more about my insights!
It’s Never Too Late To Start On Self-Improvement
During the workshop, Ms. Ty-Nilo mentioned how journaling can be helpful with goal-setting. I personally agree as well because I’ve found journaling useful for planning my week and monitoring progress. But some people may ask: isn’t it too late to get into the habit since we’re well into 2022?
Honestly, it’s not! There are still three quarters left in the year for you to plan and write. Journaling for the rest of those months will go a long way in examining milestones and setting reminders. So, I totally encourage everyone else to give journaling a try even at this point in time.
Journaling Gives Better Control Over Your Time
Time management is key to reducing stress and improving mental health. Keeping a journal will help you with setting realistic goals and avoiding getting swamped by too much work. This is why it really resonated when Ms. Ty-Nilo said to us “Focus on what you can control.”
We only have so much energy and willpower in a day, but we often use it unwisely because we don’t know where to start. Keeping a journal helps me organize my tasks so I do them methodically, then I have time to chill out!
There’s lots of space in the Viviamo 2022 Navi Planner for your chores and to-do lists. But what I like most is that it also has inspirational prompts, priorities list, as well as special pages to harness your focus. These features will also go a long way towards helping you organize your life and improving your daily mindset!
Journaling for Mental Health – Start Healthier Habits With A Cool Planner
After that empowering workshop, I could see why other people should get the Navi Planner to start their journal journey. Its theme this year is “magnificent staircases around the world”. This simple visual idea inspires us to create a life we love and challenge ourselves to greater heights.
Apart from the push to explore the world and take better care of ourselves, I like the journal’s design! Each one also includes a nifty coupon booklet with great discounts from different establishments.
Try journaling with the Navi Planner to help you tackle big goals this year. The results may surprise you and motivate you to start making journaling a daily habit!
