The Amazing Benefits of Journaling

Season 2, Ep. 7

The amazing benefits of journaling. I've been encoruaged to journal for many years but haven't. I've started numerous times but I found it hard to stick with it. Like any habit you need a compelling reason to motivate you and I never really had one. This was the motivation for this Team Super Dad "Expert Hangout". To find out what journaling really is, how to do and how to make it stick long term.


Joining me were Moyra Mackie, Dale Darley and surprise guest Andrew Priestley.


Please subscribe to this podcast and share with friends.

Leaving a review (iTunes) is also an amazing way to support Team Super Dad and provide me with feedback.


Dale and Moyra are both writers and journaling coaches who support people and businesses in the power of journaling.


Andrew is an amazing business coach who I know from the Key Person of Influence alumni. When I heard he had journaled since 1976 I just had to get him involved. Amazing!


I'm not really sure I understood what I was trying to get out of journaling nor how it was going to benefit me. This was why I never made it stick as a daily habit. What value is there in scribbling down what we did each day? It can seem rather pointless or at least less important than all the other things I have got to do in my Dad Life.


That is where I was wrong.


Journaling is a positive workout for your mind and heart. As I have come to learn it is not about simply keeping a track of what you did that day. It is far more than that. Your journal is a log of your thoughts, experiences and ideas. It can be words, pictures, drawings. It is whatever you feel compelled to get down for that day. It is a flowing physical and mental process that works your mind as a muscle.


This is where the power lies.


In our busy lives we do not commonly take enough time to wind down, relax and just be. We think this time is wasted and that we have better things to do. Like so many 'go slow' actions though the value is in allowing our mind and emotions to catch up, to process all that has been happening and come up with the ideal next steps.


In many ways journaling is a form of meditation. What's more it gives you the opportunity to reflect and learn from what has been happening to you. Andrew tells us how he has been journaling since 1976. This has given him huge scope to explore, develop and broaden ideas in his family, work and personal life.


Our brain is an incredibly powerful machine and we have to remember to give it time to recharge. The magic is in whats available to us from that recharge.


I've stated journaling on a daily basis and put myself on a 90-Day Challenge to not miss a day.


I hope based on this Expert Hangout you start journaling to.

Waking Up To Racism pt2

Season 2, Ep. 4
“See past my skin colour. Don't disrespect my skin colour. See that inside me is a human being that deserves respect and honour. Just like you deserve respect and honour. A level playing field."Waking Up To Racism. In the second part of my conversation with black friends and pastors Tony Ashley and Errol Lawson our conversation on black lives matter and racism expands.What is it going to take to bring about a change in our society? Continued dialogue and a deeper understanding by us all is vital. To see more than we have seen before so that we can interpret situations, conversations and news items in a different way. So that we can ask different questions and share our feelings without fear of retaliation. In the very same and real way that black people should not have to fear speaking up for themselves when opportunities are not extended to them, skills overlooked or they are again marginalised.The level too which I have not understood or considered racism has quite shocked me this week.Now is the time we all need to wake up to racism. This is the defining moment where every person steps up.As many posts have said “it is not enough to not be racist – we have to be anti-racist”.I didn’t want the conversation to be limited by time. As a result it is spread across two episodes. You can watch the whole conversation in the video on theYouTubeorFacebook page. Allow yourself to be part of the conversation - please comment, ask questions and share.You may think you have heard some of it before but for the first time I really started to imagine myself in that situation. Imagine my role as a Dad and how it would be different if I was black, for no other reason than my skin colour. I hope it hits home to you as it has done to me.And that is just the tip of theiceberg. There really is a lot to learn and understand.You will love this episode.

Waking Up To Racism pt1

Season 2, Ep. 3
“A respectful communication. All I want is to be seen and be heard. To have others understand our experiences and our pain so we can find a solution.”Waking Up To Racism. The level too which I have not understood or considered racism has quite shocked me this week.Now is the time we all need to wake up to racism. This is the defining moment where every person steps up.Up until this moment that has not been me. I still do not know what that really means but my first endeavour was to increase my knowledge. My second was to arrange a live-stream with two black friends and Church leaders.I needed to wake up to what this subject is really about.As many posts have said “it is not enough to not be racist – we have to be anti-racist”.It’s uncomfortable. As I prepared for this Expert Hangout I did not feel excited and keen to do it like normal. Will it be awkward? Will I say the right thing? Ask the right question? Will I make it worse?I could have let it stop me. I think that is what we have all done for too long. I needed in some way to make a difference. Even if it was just too myself and my actions.I didn’t want the conversation to be limited by time. As a result it is spread across two episodes. You can watch the whole conversation in the video on the YouTube or Facebook page. Allow yourself to be part of the conversation - please comment, ask questions and share.You may think you have heard some of it before but for the first time I really started to imagine myself in that situation.
