Every step is necessary. We all need our own time to travel our own distance. Give yourself credit. And be thankful you made it this far. How far have you come? How much have you grown?
How to Observe Yom Kippur - High Holidays
Think about the specifics of your recent and long-term growth. What have you not given yourself enough credit for? What is something small and necessary about this struggle? Be humble. Be teachable. The world is bigger than your view of the world. These morning journaling prompts mean almost nothing if they are not practiced consistently. It is the compound effect of simple, seemingly mundane actions over time that leads to life-altering, positive results. There is nothing immediately exciting about putting one foot in front of the other every day for weeks, but by doing so, many normal human beings have climbed over 29, feet to the top of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest.
There is nothing immediately exciting about forcing yourself into self-reflection first thing in the morning, but by doing so, I and hundreds of students and clients Angel and I have worked with have drastically better lives. Remember, the mind needs to be trained to gain strength.
It needs to be worked consistently to grow and develop over time. Prove to yourself, in little ways every morning, that you have the power to take control of your day, and your life. The most fundamental aggression to ourselves and others—the most fundamental harm we can do to human nature as a whole—is to remain ignorant by not making the time to pause every day and look at ourselves and others carefully, honestly and gently.
What resonated with you? Is there anything else you would add? And as I read over the journaling prompts 15 really jumped out at me. I used to struggle with this to no end.
In fact, I found your work about three years ago when I was stuck in a moderate bout of depression. Between mind-wrenching career challenges and tough family obligations, my tank was totally dry. In a nutshell, I had been stretching myself too thin…I was giving all my energy to others and leaving absolutely no time to recuperate and grow. After reading your articles and emails, I signed up for your getting back to happiness course and completed the scheduled coaching with you. The little rituals we designed and implemented for overcoming my self-neglect and balancing my energy output have been a daily life-saver.
Carey, your progress has been truly inspiring to witness. Thank you for the kind feedback, and great job! Keep those little rituals going. Thanks for the email this A. And my morning routine is also one that brings peace.
For me, that means a minute walk at sunrise, a cup of decaf coffee, and reading or re-reading a few pages of a book that inspires me, like your book and I just pre-ordered your new book too. The entire write-up gives a useful and practical information known to many but practiced by a few. Angel and Marc, until I attended your Think Better Live Better conference last month I never thought about my daily rituals the way I do now—that what I do every single day either makes or breaks me.
Just small, consistent actions that start my days off right. Just a few short weeks ago, I never would have said that. I just wanted everything to be easier, rather than right. Anyway, thanks for making a difference over here. I think either one would work. Perhaps it would be helpful to ask yourself which method allows you to reflect more? Do you write better with one method or another?
I used to write everything by hand.
31 Morning Journaling Prompts that Will Change the Way You Think
When I first learned to type, I would have to do my creative writing by hand and then type it. But as my typing became more natural to me, I found I could creatively compose by typing without writing it by hand first. The same thing happened when I learned to use the keyboard on the computer. I had to get comfortable with it to feel like I could be creative with that tool. Now, years later, I find that I pick and choose the method that fits the mood I am in. Some days, I just need to write it out by hand.
And yet on other days, I find being able to put the words down almost as quickly as I can think of them works better for my creative juices. Pick the one that works the best to allow you to investigate and memorialize your thoughts. Happy journaling. Hi, a few days ago I have just changed from a paper to an electronic journal with my iPad using an app called GoodNotes.
I find it quite useful saving paper and keep it better away from prying eyes! You are right, Consistency is everything. Thanks for providing valuable information, you have done lot of research on it. Keep it up. Great job marc may the lord continue to bless and keep you and yours to help bring such positive thinking to our community.
Journaling helped me move through so many challenges in my life. I started out simply with a spiral notebook and book of spiritual devotions. This eventually led to a daily ritual of contemplation and self-awareness. It became my saving grace. Hi Marc and Angel, I cannot express how wonderfully peaceful I feel as I read your life saving email and see some rays of hope, in an otherwise shattered life.

That is so pertinent for me — a champion procrastinator! Thank you. I already get up early as I love the peaceful time before other people are up and about. I shall now incorporate journal time into this special hour. Wonderful insights so painstakingly beaded together. Thanks again.
It is very much motivating. All the 31 suggestions are so real that those seem to be emerged from the deepest corner of my soul. Thanks for providing us such a precious gift. Does it have to be done in the morning? I find that journalling before bed helps me out better than during the day.
Always Grateful for it.
Your guidance is GPS for life. More power and Godbless you. I love this idea and have been trying to get my self started fora long time.

The a peaceful couple of years now in the last 2 yrs the cancer has come back he had to retire due to the fact of losing his voice and having surgery.
