This journal provides you with 100 opportunities to check in with yourself. Each day you journal, you'll be prompted to write down something(s) that you are proud of, something(s) that you are grateful for, an area you want to work on and a letter directly to yourself. Focusing on these areas is going to help you shift out of auto-pilot mode and back into the drivers seat of your thoughts.

Proud of... Growing up we are constantly showered with words of praise and affirmation as we meet various milestones, learn new skills and go to school. But as you age into adulthood there are very few opportunities for someone to tell you they're proud of you.

Grateful for... Life is full of darkness, and sometimes it can feel like that's all that is there. Taking time to acknowledge some of the good things in life can shift your mindset, even if its just for a moment.

Dear Me... Try to imagine a good friend coming to you with all of the same problems that you have. What would you say to that friend to comfort them? Do you have any advice to share or is now a time to fully acknowledge their feelings? Write those things down for yourself.

Working on... Inevitably, after all the other prompts are filled in, there will be something that stands out as needing your focus and attention. Call this area out as something you'd like to work on and your brain will begin to find opportunities for you to practice.

Please Note:

This listing is for physical, printed coil bound planner. It is predesigned and not customizable. If you would like to create your own custom coil planner, check out my Custom Coil Upgrade page!

If you would like to purchase this planner unpunched or punched for rings, please leave a note at checkout.

Coils are constructed of nylon coated steel & aluminum, making them sturdier, stronger and heavier than plastic coils. Covers are protected with a crystal-clear photo quality 10mm laminate cover.

All planners are cut, punched and bound by hand with love. This means binding and holes may not align exactly from one page to the next. You will not notice such small variance once pages are placed on your coil.
