When there’s a gap between who you are and who you intend to be, you are incongruent and unhappy. You’re torn, mentally exhausted and regretful. You always slightly feel like a fraud to yourself, and probably to those around you.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.” — Gandhi
Do you ever seem all jumbled up inside, unsure of what you want or feel? Or do you know exactly what you want in life but you can’t seem to get there. At one point in our lives we have one or more resolves revolving around getting healthy, learning a new skill, becoming more organized, or even just being happier. But the problem is sticking to these goals is really hard. We all tend to attempt to tackle every obstacle in our life with minimal direction and accountability in place then quickly burn out and quit. It’s happened many times before. It is no doubt your mind has limits. It can only hold so many feelings and thoughts at one time — not all of them productive. Flipping books is a solid solution to this dilemma with the rock solid habit of journaling your adventure to said goal. Journaling is an ancient tradition, one that dates back to at least 10th century Japan. Some of the most successful people throughout history have kept journals. Dima Raynova, the owner of United Sports Academy Gym, along with her co-author Silvia Topalova has tailored this ancient tradition to the life of the young athlete. They recognized the potent powerful domino affect tracking and journaling can have on every aspect of your life. It has been scientifically proven when you journal, it's an exercise in increasing your productivity: Your mind is released from the burden of the unnecessary and you are left with the space that will allow your worthwhile ideas and feelings to expand. This space could also be called clarity. By writing routinely you will get to know what makes you feel happy and confident. You will also become clear about situations and people who are toxic for you. Writing about anger, sadness and other painful emotions helps to release the intensity of these feelings. By doing so you will feel calmer and better able to stay in the present and focused on progress. Typically we problem solve from a left-brained, analytical perspective. But sometimes the answer can only be found by engaging right-brained creativity and intuition. Writing unlocks these other capabilities, and affords the opportunity for unexpected solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems. In addition to all of these wonderful benefits, keeping a journal allows you to track patterns, trends and improvement and growth over time. When current circumstances appear insurmountable, you will be able to look back on previous dilemmas that you have since resolved.
