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
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:
- What I did for me
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.
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.
