Being stuck is not a nice feeling, it sucks out your happy, depletes your motivation and sooner or later you can’t see the woods for the trees. A brilliant way to tackle stuckness and gain valuable insight is to use your journal, but what if your journal practice is no longer getting you results?
You know your journal practise has gone stale when:
The insights have dried up
It feels like you might as well be writing anything
You have fallen out of love with your “ me time” and it feels like a chore
You feel more stuck than ever and now this includes your journal work Not all journal prompts are created equal
If you have fallen out of love with your #journal and your inner #therapy has lost it’s sparkle it’s time to shake things up a little. Perhaps you have fallen into the habit of answering the inner question " how are you feeling today? " The question itself is fine, but if you ask that everyday for a year and you will be as sick as a chip!
Because its too vague, and vagueness doesn’t help stuckness one bit. To get traction you need targeted journal wizardry that doesn’t let you off the hook easily.
There is no point in trying to "dig deep" with a spoon, you need a great big shovel. The right kind of traction grabbing journal prompts can be that insight-unearthing shovel for you!
Grab a pen and your journal and get ready to get some traction!

What might things be like for me if I continue to be stuck?
What might things be like for me if I can become unstuck?
I can remember a time in my life when I didn’t feel a stuckness and this was….
