This journal is the result of years of experimentation and refinement, designed to provide you with a format that will truly make a difference. As you embark on this journey, I hope you’ll discover more about who you are and how capable you are.
You see, journaling may seem like a simple act, but I firmly believe that by putting your thoughts, wishes, and experiences on paper, you can create something truly magical.
In my own life, I find it incredible how the words I write in this journal can manifest in my life, bringing me closer to my best and highest self.
Reveal Your Inner Strength
One of the goals of this journal is to reveal the power within you.
Every day, as you reflect upon your entries, you’ll witness the accomplishments you’ve achieved – or Wins as I call them.
This powerful reflection nurtures a sense of confidence and self-assurance – emotions I have found are powerful not only for moving forward in my life but also for improving my blood sugar.
And the fun part is looking back in your journal as the weeks go by, and discovering that you’re more capable and powerful than you could ever imagine.
Gratitude: A Shift in Perspective
In addition, My Diabetes Journal invites you to embrace a gratitude practice as part of your daily routine.
Cultivating gratitude is a transformative experience that can up-level your view of the world.
By acknowledging the blessings and positive aspects of your life, you’ll shift your perspective and invite more abundance, joy, and maybe even better-managed blood sugar into your days.
What do you get
One journal is for 90 days of reflection and it guides you in the following way.
First, it starts with a page where you write down your goals for the next 90 days.
Then you go into the month and reflect on where you are in your life right now, what your wins were in the past 30 days, and what your wins are for the next 30 days (breaking down the goals that you set for the 90 days).
Then you get into the Daily Reflections for the month.
The Daily Reflections are split into a morning ritual and an evening ritual.
In the morning you focus on creating a state of gratitude and using affirmations to program your mind for what you want to accomplish. If you wonder what affirmations to use, I have included a list of affirmations to get you started.
The morning ritual also includes logging your fasting blood sugar and what dose of insulin or other diabetes medication you are using for that day. This is a simple way to keep track of your blood sugar and monitor any chances as you progress with the journaling.
In the evening, you reflect on the day. What were 3 wins you feel good about?
You also decide on the 3 Wins you would like to accomplish the next day.
It’s key that you do this planning the day before so bring it with you into your subconscious when you go to bed. A power move is to think about these goals before you sleep and feel the positive emotions associated with these goals.
Lastly, you will circle the emotional states you feel have been the overall states of the day. The goal of this is to see the link between your emotions and your blood sugar. In a busy life, this simple practice also makes you aware of how are actually feeling. And if you notice that you a bit too often place circles around the lower emotional states, it’s an invitation to look into what the underlying issues are.
I made this journal for myself, and I hope you find it useful as well.
Living with diabetes is not easy, and my goal with this journal is to help you see how magnificent you are, raise your state of being, and help you live a life as your best and highest self.
