A Step-By-Step Guide to Naluri’s Thought Journal
Having a safe space to share your emotions, feelings and thoughts for the day can be comforting. Through our Naluri Thought Journal, you are able to share your joys and achievements as well as your worries and frustrations. With this, you are able to capture how your thought patterns work and identify the thinking traps that may act as a roadblock to achieving your health goals.
Let’s get started on how you can use the Naluri Thought Journal.
- Type out and share one positive thought today. It could be anything that may have made you smile or small wins you may have accomplished. For example, you may have completed a challenging assignment at work today.
- Select an emotion that portrays how you are feeling today.
- Afterwards, upload a photo from your camera roll to remember your positive thought. Choose a photo that may relate and represents the positive thought you are feeling today.
- Once you are done, don’t forget to save your thought!
- Bad days can be a bummer. Channel all your worries, frustrations and disappointments in our unhelpful thought. Type it down and let the words flow. For example, you may find it difficult to go for morning walks in the morning.
- Next, describe how you feel by selecting from a list of emoticons that are displayed. You can also adjust the intensity of the emotion by sliding the cursor to the right or left.
- If you are experiencing a different feeling, click on the ‘Feeling something else?’ and share with us how you feel at this current moment.
- When you don’t feel so good or you’re going through a rough day, it may cause muscle tension and affect your physical state. Do you feel any differences on any specific areas of your body recently? Select the areas where you may have felt this.
- To every reaction that we experience, there must be a cue in our environment that stimulates or activates it. This is known as a trigger. Different things may trigger different people. It could be environmental, biological, mental or emotional. For example, you may find it hard to get up in the morning to go for morning walks because you usually sleep late.
- There are a bunch of Thinking Traps that people can fall into that influences them to think, act and behave negatively. Select one Thinking Trap that made you think this way. For example, in waking up early to go for morning walks – you selected the ‘All or Nothing’ Thinking Trap. You either wake up early in the morning and go for the walk or you don’t go at all.
- Based on the Thinking Trap selected, write down a more constructive thought that you can adopt to overcome this. For example, if you find it difficult to wake up early, rather than not going for morning walks at all, you can go for short walks in the evening.
- Afterwards, think of an action advice that you would share if your friend faces a similar situation as you. Click the checkbox below if you would take the advice for yourself.
- And you’re done! Your health coach will help to review the unhelpful thoughts that you share and help guide you to construct it into a more positive, realistic and productive thinking pattern.
