I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend so far. I just wanted to come on here and just share a few things with you.
Since the start of January I’ve started keeping a positive journal. It’s similar to the positive note jars that I have, however I find that keeping my positives like this is a much better way of expressing how I feel.
I’m a huge believer in daily affirmations! For me, to write down everyday positive things from my days forces me to see how positive even a ‘bad day’ was.
I find that when I have a bad day I tend to let it consume me. (Which is something that is easy to do) However, this year I had decided to take a more hands on approach.
Instead off falling asleep having feeling like I’ve had the worst day, I force myself to get my journal out and start picking my day apart. So far it’s working very well for me. I told my therapist about it last Monday, she agrees that it’s a great thing for my recovery process.
How do you deal with negative thoughts? Do you keep a positive journal?
