A journal for savouring the little things that matter the most

 

At its heart, the Moments Journal is a values-led approach to mindfully savouring life, and a tool for supporting you in manifesting more of how you want to feel and what matters most.  

It's a space to treasure memories, and for being truly grateful for every experience.

It's a guided journal with an easy to follow process that helps you identify what's important to you and seek it out in your everyday life.

I’ve never used a journal like this before, and I’ve been amazed to discover how helpful it is to me. Deceptively simple!
 

I believe that Moments Matter

In fact, if you look up dictionary definitions of the word (you mean it’s just me who finds that kind of thing fun?), a moment can mean both a brief but unspecified portion of time, and something of significance or value.  

So it could be a split second, a few minutes, a day, or even longer. And what matters to you might be totally different to what someone else values, but that's OK, if it feels important to you, it is.  

It's also the natural way our memories are formed: we rarely remember entire days, but instead just snapshots - moments - of the important parts that capture our attention.

The key to using the Moments Journal is to organise your moments into categories according to what’s important to you, your values, the kinds of things you want to remember, what you’re intending to call in more of, and how you want to feel.  

By giving experiences labels like this, it helps your brain store evidence of the way you want your life to be, which then helps shift your mindset towards perceiving how you’re already living it.  

It comes back to the old cliché of attracting what you focus on – so why wouldn’t you want to focus on the good stuff?

Who it's for

 

I'm passionate about the process within the Moments Journal, and believe it can be a powerful tool for anyone, but I think it can really work for you:

  • If you love the idea of journaling but don't have the time to write pages and pages regularly. 

  • If you want a system that goes deeper than just a diary of events. 

  • If you're looking for a way to capture memories and moments that are important to you. 

  • If you have a set of values, a guiding word, or core desired feelings but want another way to work with them every day. 

  • If you want a way to start shifting your mindset towards positivity and a way to experience more of how you want to feel in your life. 

  • If you're looking for a tool to support a regular mindfulness and gratitude practice. 

  • If you want to start working with the law of attraction and manifesting the life you wish for. 

  • If you want to savour more of your life and feel less like time is running away from you.

And if you’re looking for additional support to get started, you could try my Free 7 day email course to help you Discover the Moments that Matter to You, or, take a look at my Mentoring services if you want to go deeper and get really clear on what’s important to you, and figure out how to get it.

 
 
The moments journal is the perfect place to record my thoughts feelings and aspirations at the end of each day, the free email course that came along with the journal gave gentle, insightful prompts that really helped focus my mind. Jennifer was always contactable if I needed to clarify or talk something over with her.

How to use it

The best way to use the Moments Journal is in conjunction with your values – the things that are important to you – or any guiding words or feelings that you want to bring more of into your life, but making the most of the journal is really down to you; it’s an easily adaptable process with plenty of scope for flexibility.  

 
  • You can use it to keep track of several different kinds of moments, or choose to focus on one type. 

  •  You could use the journal in conjunction with your guiding word for the year, gathering evidence that you’re living that intention every day. 

  •  Or you could use the journal to focus on different areas of wellbeing like your monthly cycle, food and eating habits, or movement and exercise practices. 

  •  It would make a fantastic pregnancy journal or to track baby’s first moments. 

  •  You could even use it as a holiday or travel journal to really savour the memories and store them up for future reminiscing. 

 

I really want it to be a tool that works for you whatever your lifestyle and whatever is important to you, which is why I’ve just created the framework, and want you to feel free to play with it and to try different things to see what works for you.

 
 
  •  You could write just one moment in each of the boxes, or fill them with as many as you can. 

  • Choose six different kinds of moments to journal about, or decide to focus on looking for six moments of the same type. 

  • If one page isn’t enough to fit all your moments from one day, then just fill up the next page too. 

  • If a daily practice is too much, make each page a weekly spread instead and find one moment each day to treasure. 

  • Write in your best handwriting with your favourite pen, or use different coloured pens for different kinds of moments. 

  • Draw or sketch your moments instead of writing about them. 

  • Add photos, stickers, or other mementos to capture the memories.

 

There are so many possibilities, so don’t be afraid to experiment. I’d love to see how you personalise your journal, so feel free to send me a message or email, or post a photo on Instagram and use #mymomentsjournal so that we can share the inspiration with others.

It’s really great to be able to look back through my moments journal and see how far I’ve come, and how the changes that I’ve made are beginning to make a bigger impact. The small things really build up, and the way that the journal is set out allows you to take note of these things as you go.
 

The Story

The Moments Journal was born from my own struggles with finding a journaling practice that worked for me. I'd go through phases of writing pages and pages every day, and then not putting pen to paper for weeks or months. Or I'd keep a diary that was purely a record of events but didn't touch on the emotions behind my experiences.  

Long form stream-of-consciousness writing has a tendency to spiral into rumination and negativity for me, rather than unearthing the answers it seems to for other people. And it takes time, something I’m always conscious of passing too quickly and not having enough of to do everything I want. But the pure record keeping felt too clinical, too purely observed rather than lived, so I wanted something in between.  

The journaling question had been in the back of my mind for a while until one evening when I was writing in my diary – it was the night of a new moon if you’re interested in that kind of thing – the answer and the idea, as all the best ones often do, just popped into my head.  

That night I started my journal of Moments and have been doing it ever since.

Within a few weeks I was utterly converted to this new system, and the idea had evolved, grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and wouldn’t let go. If this journal could change the way I thought and felt then it could probably help others too, and that path has led to here and now, with the first version of the Moments Journal brought to life through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign which was so generously supported.


There is now a suite of products surrounding the Moments Journal - not only the original 365 day journal, but also a 90 day starter version with a choice of two covers, plus my Free 7 day email course to help you Discover the Moments that Matter to You. Or, if you’d like to go deeper, I offer Mentoring services to guide you in identifying and defining what’s important to you and giving you the practical and totally personalised tools for finding and making more of those moments.

I love writing in my Moments Journal each morning before I start work for the day. The structure it gives me and that little window of time it offers to just off-load my thoughts and process them before I get stuck into tasks is really precious.
