Time Management with Family Updates
Hello and Welcome Back to Beginnings! For this post, I am sharing a longer form video answering a Question from Carrie, a viewer of my short video on how I do Family Updates in my journals. She wanted to know how I manage my time with these updates, especially with the various approaches I take.
Thank you, Carrie, for this question and I am delighted to answer it! I did a short version of this video that you can view here on my Art of Journaling page.
In the longer form video, I share more detail about my process with recording family updates as well as my overall approach to my evening journaling practice.
One key takeaway: Brevity helps. And abbreviating makes it easier.
I also discuss my illustration process in connection with Family Updates.
My whole desire is to make Family a Priority, making time a non-issue since I see it as an investment in what matters most to me rather than an obligation. It’s my choice to record family happenings and why they matter.
I also address the issue of being too busy to make a journaling practice a front runner in your daily activity.
I trust this Q & A will inspire you to get started or to keep up with your journaling practice in a way that is relevant, meaningful and manageable for you.
Questions and comments about journaling are always welcome; I am delighted to share my journaling experience with you! If you watch the video, please give it a thumbs up for the value it brings to you. And subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already.
Your support helps more people find my content to help them in their journaling practice in 2024!
Thank you so much!
And I wish you the Very Best of Beginnings!
