How to Keep a Journal

Hi, I'm Shaina

I’m a Clarity Coach, mindset expert and interior design enthusiast living in sunny Los Angeles. I help people get unstuck and create a lifestyle they’re proud of.

Did you know that the average person has between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts per day!?

Our poor minds are in constant overdrive and they deserve a break once and a while.

Journaling can be an effective way to organize your ideas, sketch your dream future, vent about that asshole who never called you back or a way to do some serious reflection.

But journaling is more than just jotting down thoughts in a cute little book. It’s an opportunity to sit with yourself and just be. Something that most of us never do. Partly because we’re just so damn busy and sometimes because we’re afraid to face ourselves!

But regardless of your excuse, once you make the time, you may find that it’s one of the best forms of therapy- and the cheapest : )

I wish that our schools gave us the opportunity to sit and write- freely. I wish that I was taught the importance of getting to know myself through this method. After all, the relationship you have with yourself is a pretty important one!

Keeping a journal doesn’t have to feel like a chore. There are a TON of different ways to use one. In today’s video, I discuss a few of my favorite ways, but choose one that feels good for you.

My guilty pleasure is Bravo!
Real Housewives, Southern Charm, Vanderpump, Million Dollar Listing...I watch it all.
I'm a sucker for anything nostalgic.
I still watch reruns of Dawson's Creek on the regular
I know the lyrics to almost every 90's song.
Nathan says it's my hidden talent
My happy place?
Summer days. I love the beach, being tan, cookouts and country music!
Monica Gellar is my alter ego.
Cleaning and organizing are my therapy
I always have a candle burning at home.
I have a cabinet full of them.
My favorite movie?
Father of the Bride.
If I weren't a life coach...
I'd probably be an interior designer or do something in TV/ film production. Any chance I get to visit sets, I'm all over it!
