4-Week Mindful Journaling Course - Purposeful New Year's Resolutions

More Views

The new year brings with it the best intentions to break old habits, learn new skills, be productive, get happy. We may set our resolutions without much thought, perhaps based on what we think we should be doing, other people’s ideals or set our goals too high, making it hard to maintain them. 

Mindful Journaling is a powerful tool that can support us in finding lasting change. Through externalising and making sense of our experiences, reflecting on the past and setting intentions for the future we can maintain lots of small choices, lots of little moments, that when added together become powerful.

This 4-week course will explore how to use journaling exercises and core mindfulness values such as awareness, compassion, self-care and equanimity to create our new year’s resolutions and a sustainable plan to maintain them well beyond the course. The weekly sessions will include mindfulness practice, journaling exercises and group discussion and reflection. In between the course sessions there will be practices to do at home and so the course will also support an ongoing mindfulness and journaling practice.

The course will cover:  

  • How to use reflective practices to set achievable intentions for the future;
  • Journaling exercises to observe progress with our resolutions;
  • Core mindfulness values such as awareness, compassion, self-care and equanimity;
  • Mindfulness and journaling as tools for helping us maintain our resolutions;
  • How to develop and maintain a reflective writing practice; and
  • Establishing and/or maintaining a regular mindfulness practice.

No prior mindfulness or journaling experience required, but those with experience are welcome. We would recommend having a specific notebook for the course and your journaling practice.
