Here is a journal that’s been in the works for awhile, at least on a subconscious level. One of the things I have struggled with continually has been to relax, lighten up, and not take life so seriously all the time. So I decide to make it one of my new year’s resolutions, and while at first it seemed like I was making no progress at all on this particular resolution, about April/May time frame I realized I actually had.
That’s the thing about some resolutions or desires for change. They can happen when you don’t even realize it. This was certainly one of them. The realization came as I noticed that I had been making progress with being more playful in small, but consistent ways like getting even more into role playing video games, reading more books (especially series, which I love to do), and just allowing myself to experiment with ideas, thoughts, and even my daily schedule. In doing more of what I loved, and being more open to change and new ideas, I discovered more playful energy in my day to day life.
So with that in mind, I created the seventh book in my Journaling To Feel Good Series called I Feel Playful When as a reminder to me of all the ways I have invited more playfulness in my life. Not only is this a great reminder for me, it’s somewhat of a blueprint for others to find their playfulness as well.
The journaling prompts inside this guided journal, which are… I feel playful when, I feel excitement doing, I love to experimenting with, I enjoy thinking about, I think it’s fun to, I feel the most joy when I, I feel adventurous about. Each help dive and dig out the things that bring out the playfulness in us (at least it did for me!).
Here is the official book blurb…
Our emotions hold the key to a happy life. The better we feel, the better our life becomes around us. In life, we have learned many ways of not feeling well, but through consistently reaching for better feelings, we can rise above to something greater.
This guided journal is dedicated to finding the feeling of playfulness and other closely related emotions, which is a wonderful first step to cultivating a life full of excitement, joy, and fun.
Journaling prompts include the following… I feel playful when, I feel excitement doing, I love experimenting with, I enjoy thinking about, I think it’s fun to, I feel the most joy when I, I feel adventurous about.
I Feel Playful When is available as a paperback on Amazon that has three months worth of journaling, or it’s available on Etsy as a printable (and can be used as a digital journal as well).
I am grateful to myself for seeking out more playfulness in my life, not only has it led to more joy and happiness on a constant basis, but also to creating fun things like this journal. So whether you feel inspired to give these journaling prompts a whirl, at the very least I encourage all who read this post to seek out activities that being you joy and don’t be afraid to try new things.
