My own vitality wheel and wellness journal.

Image of my Vitality Wheel

My vitality wheel in the photo above, hangs on my light pegs, above where I sit in the living room.
I started creating this vitality wheel after reading an article on what it was about, when researching the book I came across, “The self-care revolution,” by Suzy Reading. I blogged about this book here, in this post.
When I started reading the book, I referred and, changed my vitality wheel accordingly, as I learnt more and gave more thought to mine.

Below, is my journal I’m using as my wellness journal.

The words on the front of my journal say:

BE HAPPY BE
BRIGHT
BE YOU

I think these words are appropriate for what I am using this journal for.

The pages inside this journal are in pastel pink and blue. Pages are lined to start with, then there are plain pages.

Each of the pages has one of the three following quotes at the bottom of each page:

  • You are something magical
  • Every cloud has a silver lining
  • Your sparkle hasn’t gone unnoticed

This journal I started creating, before knowing and reading the book, “The self-care revolution.”

The book suggested to create a journal, as well as the vitality wheel. But you were not forced to, if you felt it was too much writing a journal. I chose not to create a journal, but the book has influenced slightly my journal, as I take something from it, with what I was doing already.

This is two of my pages from my journal, in the photo below. This is the same layout I use for each day.

As you can see it is a nice simple layout, but I do have space should I wish to track anything else.

So at the moment, as my layout shows, I track my:

  • Food
  • Activity
  • What I did for me
  • Mood

At the front of my journal, I have a yearly mood chart.
It’s the same layout I used before, but with a very slight change in list of moods to before, as I wanted to put some of the moods to their own list, rather than combined.

My yearly mood chart for 2019

And that’s my journal for now until full and then the plan will be to have a ring binder journal in future with this in, as well as my planner. That way, it will be all in place. So I will look at buying an A5 leather filofax, that will combine this and my personal planner together.

    1. Yes and the vitality wheel will be especially good for me, with it a visual thing. But the journal was certainly something I needed to get back into, like I used to before. But it’s a more simpler one than a random one, that I can change if required. It feels more organised this time round too. Xx

    1. I am thank you. I think having a journal takes ownership some way. It does for me anyway, because from stopping the journal from when I did it before, things have changed slowly for the worst. But the journal is helping to get back there, but in a more organised and simpler way. 😊

    1. Thank you.
      I seemed to have found something simple to the eye, at this point in my life, that will help. But it’s also flexible where I can add something else if I want too.

    1. Yes, I like seeing other people’s journals to see what they do in theirs and for possible inspiration.
      I am glad you find the vitality wheel interesting. I know I have. 😊 Xx
