Journalling is one of my favourite ways to get “unstuck” in my business. Here are 5 journalling prompts I use to help me move forward when I'm feeling overwhelmed.
If I’m ever in doubt about something in my life and business, I reach for a notebook.

And remember, it needn’t take long. I usually only spend a couple of minutes at a time journalling, and I almost always feel better off for having done it.
If for some reason you’re stalling on actually writing things down (and I do this all the time), just set a timer for 1 minute and see how you do. If you don’t know what to write, just write “I don’t know what to write”. It works, honestly.
