My Morning Plan-How It Is Working

20170903_095423646_iOS

In September I made this Morning Plan while I was out of school for summer. Since it is November now and I have returned to school a while ago I thought I might tell you how this Morning Plan is working out for me.

I planned to get up at 6:30 in the morning but I figured if my alarm clock rings at 6:30 I don’t manage to get out of bed before 7:00. This is why I try to set my alarm clock at 6:00 but to be honest I still stay in bed until 7:00 anyways.  I think I have never read, journaled our listened to music before waking up at all.

I do get up at around 7:00 to get dressed and prepare lunch. I try not to skip breakfast but I just cannot eat anything in the morning.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, I got lucky. On these two days school does start at 9:50 for me which I love. I still set my alarm clock as usual and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I do manage to journal before school most of the time which I absolutely love. Journaling sure is the perfect way to start your day.

Although my Morning Plan is not working out as I planned to my mornings are way less stressful as they used to be last year. I love having a lot of time to wake up and not having to jump out of bed as fast as I can. To sum it up: I am glad I changed my morning habit.

October Habit Tracker

In September I tried out a habit tracker for the first time and I really enjoyed it so I decided to keep tracking my journaling, blogging and new this month my studying habit. Just like last month I want to show you how it worked out and if I reached my goals.

Bullet Journal

Surprisingly my bullet journal habit did not change at all compared to last month. I worked on my spreads on 13 days in October although I got a little behind in two weeks, creating my spreads during the current weeks.

Art Journal

Last month I set myself the goal to journal in my art journal more often and in October and used my Art Journal one more time than in September. Since I am in the middle of my exam months I probably won’t be able to art journal more but I can already tell you I have been really creative for the first three days in November.

Diary

I am proud to say that I finally picked up my old diary habit again in the end of October and I have been feeling a lot better since. There is something special about writing your thoughts down that can’t be replaced by anything else. I did set myself some guidelines to achieve this goal of writing more.

Instagram

Here is some good news. I managed to post more or less consistent in October. I had some days I didn’t post anything but I didn’t skip a week like last month.

Blog

I am finally getting the hang of blogging more again as well. I found some new things to write about, such as these monthly habit tracker recaps and really enjoy filming videos for YouTube. I am also working on some exciting things I can’t wait to show you.

Study

The final column of this month. My study habit. I decided to add this one because I started writing my first exams in October. This is the only column I wish I would not have filled that much but I know there is way more studying ahead in the following months since my graduation and final exams are coming up in April.


How was your October? Did you do anything exciting? Do you have any goals for November?

Working On My Journaling Habit

Working on my journaling habit

I haven’t been writing in my diary journal as much as I want to lately. So far in October, I only wrote about five entries while I wrote almost every second day in the last couple of months.

I think the main reason why I did not journal as much as I used to was the lack of time and the lack of ideas I had. I don’t know I just rather spent time with some important people in my life than sit down to write and I also kind of got tired of writing about the same things over and over.

Today, I decided to change this. I wrote down a list of things I can journal about and I set myself a list of things I want to change to achieve my goal of writing more often.

Things to write about:

  • my day
  • my thoughts
  • my weird dreams
  • people in my life
  • what is happening in the world at the moment
  • things I am dealing with
  • writing prompts
  • ideas I had during the day
  • Random lists

Things to change:

  • set aside more time to journal
  • take your journal with you wherever you go
  • don’t worry about how much you write at once
  • don’t worry about how the pages look
  • journal at least every third or second day
  • journal throughout the day. You don’t have to write a whole entry at once
  • REMEMBER YOU ARE JOURNALING FOR YOURSELF
  • keep it simple

But why am I telling you this? I want you to be part of my journaling journey and it also is some extra motivation to work on my journaling habit if I shared it with you guys.

Do you journal? How often do you journal? Do you have any tips?

Lots of Love
