Make the Most of Your Journaling Process

What are the best ways to work through your journal?

We get quite a few customers asking us the best way to work through their journals...

so here are a few of our FAQ!

Do you suggest journaling in the morning or at night?

I recommend either/or and or both. It just depends on where you have the opportunity for time.

In the morning, journaling helps to set the day. In the evening it helps to reflect on the day.

In any case, do it the first or last thing before or after sleep.


Is it ok to be repetitive?

Absolutely! Repetition is the way we learn new skills and strengthen new beliefs and a new mindset. Just be sure to really feel what you are writing. Ensure that you feel it in your body, that you can feel your state shift. Repetition for the sake of doing doesn't achieve anything unless you feel emotion as you do it. So really feel/read what you are writing and be in it.


Is there a particular 'way' I should write?

Write anyway you feel comfortable!

This is about YOU and your journey. There are no wrongs or rights.


How much time should I spend journaling?

You don't have to write a lot or spend a lot of time on it.

Focus on the quality of the session rather than the duration. The quality is determined by how you felt emotions shift in the session. If you aren't feeling it, just get up for a break and come back to it. Don't force it!



There is no 'handbook' when it comes to journaling.

Follow your thoughts and let them flow out on to the paper!

It’s never too late for a lane change. Insite Mind is the brainchild of one woman who after a decade spinning in the hamster wheel of the accounting world gave it up to live out her heart work. But it didn’t come without challenge and a little nudge from the universe in the form of a book Dealing with Difficult People. Upon opening it Alisa was surprised to find in black and white text “maybe it’s you”. So after several ego deaths and many personal development books along the way Alisa Pettit found her way to coaching. Now a fully fledged positive mindset coach and personal mastery guru Ali’s work helps people find their way through mindset teachings.
