Time for Yourself with a Week of “Journaling for you”

A week of daily contact with yourself, your thoughts, and your feelings. Sounds intense, right? Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be! With the challenge “Journaling for you,” you spend just 5 minutes each day in a simple and accessible way connecting with yourself.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You race through each day, hoping to keep up with time.
  • Everyone seems to want something from you, from your partner and kids to your employer and colleagues, to family and friends.
  • You really want to do everything right, but sometimes you just don’t know how.
  • Deep down, you know you need to make time for yourself and that it will help you, but where do you find that time?
  • When you finally have time for yourself, you often end up mindlessly scrolling on your phone because you don’t know what else to do.

What if this could happen?

  • You take 5 minutes each day to pause and focus on your thoughts and feelings.
  • In those 5 minutes, you can follow a guided prompt instead of having to think about what to write next.
  • Using a journal prompt, you write for 5 minutes about whatever comes to mind.
  • After those 5 minutes, you feel closer to yourself and ready to tackle the rest of the day.

That would be nice, wouldn’t it?

  • In the emails, I share tips and my experiences with journaling and writing.

“I journal quite regularly, but it was really nice to have a sort of accountability each day. And not having to think about what to write was also relaxing. It flowed very naturally.”


“Yes, this was such a wonderful challenge! It got me back into journaling, which created a lot of me-time moments and great insights! 😃 It was also nice not to have to think about what to write, as you had already decided that! 🤩”


“I just wanted to say I’m loving the journaling challenge. The message from my 80 year old self was particularly good.. and a bit emotional but very needed. Mange tak for making me a part of this 🖤


Frequently asked questions about “Journaling for you”

What if I miss or forget a day?
If you forget to write one day or really can’t find the time, that’s totally okay! Just pick up where you left off the next day. I’m sometimes too busy to write as well. Then I’m extra happy when I manage to do it the next day.

Does it matter what time of day I write?
No, you decide when to write. I can’t decide for you whether it’s better to write in the morning, afternoon, or evening. Choose a time that suits you and your day. It’s only 5 minutes, so don’t make it too complicated for yourself. You likely spend 5 minutes mindlessly scrolling otherwise, right? 😉

When will I receive the email with the journal prompt?
The email is sent around 6 a.m. every day. This gives you more flexibility to choose when to write. You can write as early as 6 a.m. or later in the afternoon or evening.
