Over the years I’ve found that living an organized and structured life with my many chronic illnesses only helps. Yes, there are days I’m not able to follow as much as I want, but having a plan on paper and in my head still helped. Even if I just followed my plan a small amount, I still felt like I was moving at least one thing forward, and sometimes that’s key as a Spoonie.
During this time, I picked up tips from various business leaders I follow and began using a productivity journal designed for professionals and entrepreneurs. It helped me make huge strides with my life and career over recent years, allowing me to hit goals I never thought I would hit (like becoming a Spoonie Ironman). But I didn’t think it was well structured for Spoonies…
So I decided to take what I have learned and create a wellness and productivity journal, specifically designed for patients with chronic illness.
Take control of your mental health by having a clearer plan, practice gratitude, and create a better headspace. By writing down your thoughts, concerns, and how you feel you will take the weight off your mind and improve your mental health.
This isn’t easy as a Spoonie, but if I can go from bedridden to IRONMAN, I have confidence you can go for a short walk. It’s amazing what even small amounts of movement can do for the body. Challenge yourself and track your progress.
When we start the day without a plan, we start the day without purpose. Practice creating your own Spoonie schedule and tasks. Even when you take turtle steps towards a goal, you’re making progress, and the Spoonie Journal will keep you on your path.
Complete the short form below and within 24 hours I will send you an email with the Chronically Better You Spoonie Journal. I’m excited for you to take this step and can’t wait to at least cyber meet you. – Brian Greenberg, The Spoonie Ironman
