Over the past few days, my wife and I spent some time in Sturgeon Bay, WI. It is our 10th wedding anniversary this week so we decided to get away.
Sturgeon Bay is a great little maritime town on a bay that feeds into Lake Michigan.
We found a little shop and I was intrigued by a set of journals I had discovered.
They were 21 day journals (affiliate link). There is a theory that it takes approximately 21 days to form or break a habit.
What was intriguing about the journals is that they are simple, elegant do-it-yourself coaching programs rolled up into a journal format. I love the idea of a self-run coaching program that is part of my journal, meaning it gives instruction, direction and milestones to reach throughout your 21 days as you document your journey.
I do believe there is something magical about physically writing into a journal vs. typing your thoughts and feelings out electronically.
This is why I think the format of these 21 day journals are great -- the journal provides you a basic roadmap of spending 21 days forming a new habit (i.e. exercising more, starting a new hobby, spending more time marketing your business, etc.), it gives instructions about what to concentrate on each day, and you're documenting it all, which means if you stick with it you're bound to accomplish something positive at the end of 21 days.
Less important to me, but a nice touch, the journal comes with a rubber bracelet as a reminder to hold yourself accountable for the 21 days to form your new habit.
So I ended up picking up the 21 Days to Make or Break a Habit journal...I've included some photos below. You can also get the journal on Amazon (affiliate link)
