Day One is my journal of choice. It’s a real functional app that, with some effort, can become a tool in your toolbox against depression. The ease of use and beautiful design make it a joy to journal with, and it made sticking to my journaling habit so much easier.
Day One user, Roberto Mateu, shares how he uses Day One to log his daily productivity.
Before long you may start to notice some patterns, or even better: you will start to competing with yourself and work towards not breaking the productivity chain.
Day One Journal for me has basically become a free-form dumping ground for whatever thoughts and emotions have been welling-up in my body and mind throughout the day. I’m finding the exercise of journaling to be a fantastic pressure release valve to push toward the end of each day.
It took me a while to figure out how to do this, but once I did it was game-changing. Self awareness can only really come through repeated activity and – more importantly – reflection. Looking back and looking inward forges a better path going forward…. That’s why I keep a daily journal.
This personal micro-blogging platform is a perfect way to start tracking the things you’ve done this year, and is great for when you decide to look back and see the amazing things you’ve done!
As a creator it’s important to keep your mind clear and tap into your intuition. Journaling really helps me do this. Every single day I journal for 10 minutes. I start out with the 3 things I am particularly grateful for that day then I just write whatever is on my mind. I don’t think. I don’t edit. I don’t process. I just write.
