130: Journal Jam

This is a journaling mini-course.
Seven short reflection prompts.
And multisensory meditations.

Music-flow journaling

Each day, I'll send you 2x writing prompts and 3x song suggestions (instrumentals).

Choose one song and one prompt.

Write (freeform) and listen to music.

❌ Edit or analyze
❌ Write for anyone else
❌ Try to produce anything "good"

✅ See what comes up
✅ Follow curiosity
✅ Keep the pen moving

Give it a try ✍

Takes < five minutes / day.





You may discover

A low-stakes mindfulness practice.  

Small invitations to be generative, create, and increase awareness.

An opportunity to slow down and notice thoughts in a private, analog setting.



Example prompts

"Where do you want more challenge in life? Less?"

"Where do your most creative ideas come from?"

"What do you feel grateful for?"





F A Q

Why journaling?

Reduce stress, kickstart learning, set and achieve meaningful goals.

No special skills or equipment required.


After a few days, I imagine you'll get your own ideas re: what sort of topics you want to explore. At that point, just write whatever is coming to mind.


Why music?

The music is 100% optional.

For me, it helps turn off the "editing brain" 🧠

  • Track length works as a built-in timer
  • Choose from short-medium-long options


The songs are all instrumentals - different lengths and genres.

If you prefer to write in silence, that's fine. It's up to you.

Why longhand?

It's important to use analog tools to express and record thoughts.

Writing by hand helps improve retention and memory. The physical aspect requires that you slow down. And it offers a break from screens / keyboards.

But if you have a strong preference for digital tools, that's ok.

Expected outcomes

Every course promises you some sort of transformational outcome.

I don't know where this will lead. 

Perhaps you're up for an experience?

Minimally, you may learn something surprising or discover some cool music.

At the end of the week, you'll have seven responses to look back on.

Supplies ✍

You'll need :

  • A pen
  • Seven pieces of paper
  • Headphones / speakers

Music: Spotify account optional.
Public YouTube links also provided.

Accountability (bonus!)

At any point, you can respond to the emails.

On Day 4, I'll send you a bonus 🔥

Looking for a new perspective?
Feeling creatively blocked?

I'll reply to every message with encouragement.
