Need Help on Your JMB Living Journal Journey?
The other week on Instagram, I made a post sharing how I’m not always happy. Because JMB Living is all about living a more joyful, mindful, balanced life, it’s not always clear that I struggle, too. I work to be transparent in my feelings and failings and really empathize with a lot of people that share when they are stressed and overwhelmed.
As we progress further into the beginning of another issue of the JMB Living Journal, I thought it might be helpful to create a collection of all of the tips, videos, and blog posts we have to help you on your Journal Journey!
I intentionally created the JMB Living Journal with an abundance of prompts to increase the structure and also freedom you have in using your journal—as in, you can fill in as many (or as few) prompts as you want each day! I love the metaphor of your journal use as a Journal Journey because everyone that purchases a journal becomes part of a community where we are all traveling different paths on the same journey to a more mindful life.
Through these tips and resources, I want you to feel comfortable forging your own path on our shared journey. The JMB Living Journal works best when it is working for you: taking into consideration your lifestyle, your preferences, and what brings you joy.
As you scroll through the rest of the post, you will find our resources categorized by different aspects to help you along your Journal Journey.
The JMB Living Journal Community on Facebook
My personal favorite resource for journal use isn’t even mine—it’s yours! The JMB Living Journal Community Facebook Group is a space for journal users to ask questions, share wins and inspirations, and connect with each other. Seeing all of the incredible women that use the journal come together and share in their journey is exactly what I wished for and more when I made the journal. In addition to posts of users, I regularly post in the group with content related to blog posts, new resources and workshops, and questions to get your input on how to improve the journal! Join Here
