Journaling consistently is a challenge at best. All of our good intentions are no more than faded memories when habits are not born. Do not be discouraged. There is a simple tool called ‘One Line a Day: A Five Year Memory Book’ that is a journal perfect for those needing to build daily journal writing into a habit.
The ‘One Line a Day: A Five Year Memory Book’ is unique in design. There are 365 pages and each page has five entry fields. Those entry fields allow the user to not only write their daily one liner but revisit the previous years. This book is perfect for those having a hard time beginning to journal or finding time to write more than just a sentence. So instead of minutes, this journal takes seconds to record the daily event.
The fun part of this type of journal is that each day you get to choose that one moment or memory to record. You learn quickly how to be concise and articulate your thoughts and events. This exercise in and of itself is valuable in discovering the important aspects of your life.
For children or teenagers, this journaling tool is invaluable. Their lives are moving quickly and so much is forgotten. Helping them build a habit of journaling early in their life establishes a firm foundation for their future. Helping them to sort through their emotions and activities that matter are life changing and life healing.
You could write a line a day as it comes. This seems simple enough, but for those just beginning there may be a need of simple question journal prompts. These simple question journal prompts should just be used until one is able to articulate their day into one sentence that is meaningful to them. Below are some sample questions you might want to use to begin this five year exercise.
