Aswell as using my Bullet Journal daily (& my Brain dump notebook), I also use my Mind Journal.
Notebook I use: Leuchtturm1917 (A5 size) in Emerald colour.
Why I wanted this 'Mind Journal' notebook seperate to my Bullet Journal:
This notebook is a lot more personal than my Bullet Journal, which means I wouldn't take it out of the house with me.
So heres what I write in my 'Mind Journal' ...
Quotes & Inspiration pages
On my mind
Balance of life (monthly)
List of things I love
Quotes & Inspiration pages -
I like to get my quotes and inspiration from Pinterest. I either write them down or print things off and stick it into the notebook.
Here is a few of my Pinterest boards related to my Mind Journal:
Write in Mind Journal
Positive thinking/relax/the mind
Bedtime Yoga -
I know bedtime yoga sounds silly (cause it did to me before I found a blog post and video on it).
Its very relaxing before bed.
Here is the blog post and video I found on Bedtime Yoga - Click here!
Mood chart -
The Mood chart is good at tracking how stressed out I am, within the month. I have two very active young kids under 5 years old and I do feel that I get stressed out quite a bit.
My colour code system:
Yellow - Happy
Blue - Sad
Green - Okay
Red - Angry
Orange - Stressed
I write down (daily if possible) all the feelings or thoughts I had that day.
Things that have been playing on my mind or that I think a lot about.
On my mind -
I write down whats on my mind at that time.
I might take this out of the Journal as its similar to the 'Feelings/Thoughts' page.
Suppose its more of a quick glance of whats been on my mind in that month.
(Ignore the ugly doodle LOL)
Balance of life (monthly) -
I haven't quite figured out how this section is going to work just yet.
This is what I have so far...
Gratitude list -
This is my favourite part in my Mind Journal. I love writing down what I'm grateful for that day.
I write 5 things that I'm grateful for that day. Even the smallest of things.
I also write a reason next to each one.
Mood boards -
I haven't started this section yet, so I have no pictures to show you.
The idea is to collect pictures (maybe from Pinterest) and create a 'Mood board' on the page. Things that made you smile that month or favourites of the month, or even an inspiration page.
I also haven't started this section as yet, so no pictures to show you.
I'll have to do an update blog post when I finish the rest of the sections.
List of things I love
Relax Melodies: Sleep & Yoga
Moodtrack Diary: Mood Tracker
So thats my Mind Journal!
