How To Write In Your Workbook.

How many hours have you spent watching television or movies in your life? Isn’t it time to invest a few hours a week into doing something that is truly beneficial for you? Entertainment is fantastic fun, sure, but it doesn’t help you to achieve your goals. Does it?

Hello there, champion of true wellness...

We've got great news for you: Writing in your Workbook each day connects you to your true-self. This is the number one reason why journaling is so powerful and important for you to do. Spending some time each day to process your thoughts, feelings and actions helps you to reflect on your behaviour from a higher perspective than you get from participating in them. This perspective comes from your higher self, your true-self, if you use it wisely.

Henry Jones strongly encourages us to make time each day to write in our journal. If you’re lucky enough to have the Workbook for your upcoming Challenge, then you've got the ideal tool to use as your journal on the Challenge. It was specifically designed for this purpose, so you should find it very useful.

Here's some more great advice for you...


These 6 tips will transform your Challenge Workbook into one of your most treasured belongings.

Make Each Occasion Special:

You should look forward to writing in your Workbook each day. Do something special. Find a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. Create a comfortable, sacred space. Light some candles, burn incense, and surround yourself with artifacts, photos, or memorabilia that are special to you. Creating a nice, peaceful ambiance will help you to think and reflect. (Don’t forget to switch your phone off!)

Write From Your True-Self:

Always write in your Workbook from the perspective of your true-self. You don’t want to keep a written record of your troubles and woes.

Tip: Take a few minutes to meditate before you start writing. This will help you to be in the right mindset.

Make The Time:

It’s important for you to set aside sufficient time to write about your day in a mindful way. Don’t scribble down a few lines before rushing out the door or nodding off to sleep. (You owe yourself more than that). Also, don't rush your answers to the Daily Exercises. Let the answers flow freely until you've said all you need to say.

Be Well Prepared:

A surprising number of people report feeling thirsty when they write in their Workbook, so keep a glass of water within reach. Tip: Keeping a box of tissues close by is handy, too. You may become tearful when you pour your heart out. We encourage you to do so. The more in-depth your writing, the more you’ll gain from the whole experience.

Write Your Answers Down:

Writing down your thoughts and feelings – in your own hand-writing – is extremely powerful and cathartic. Much more so than punching a keypad! Tip: Use paper and ink. You can always type-up your notes if you desire a digital copy. The importance of writing with ink on paper is not to be under-estimated.

Write Neatly:

Write neatly. Why? Because writing neatly requires extra effort, focus, and attention! It encourages diligence, promotes concentration, and facilitates easy reading. Ultimately, writing neatly creates a Workbook you can be proud of. You wouldn’t hand-in a sloppy school project or work assignment, would you? No! Certainly not! So, keep your Workbook neat and clean. Folks who have done Henry Jones's Challenges say their Workbooks are very precious to them. You’ll see!

When Should You Write In Your Workbook:

On the topic of timing, Henry Jones recommends that you get into the habit of updating and reviewing your Workbook first thing in the morning and last thing at night. But naturally, you can write in it whenever you feel the urge to.

In the Mornings:

At sunrise, pour yourself a delicious mug of warm water (not boiling), add one teaspoon of lemon juice (honey is optional), then sit in a quiet place (preferably where you can feel soft sunlight on your skin) and meditate on the day ahead. It’s highly beneficial for you to read your notes from days past. Do that, and you’ll keep a vivid account of your Challenge experience fresh in your mind.

In the Evenings:

At night, do the Lessons and Daily Exercises, and then write in your Workbook. It’s best not to start the Exercises or write in your Workbook until you’ve done your meditation; visualization; affirmations, and reflection exercises. Meditating before doing the Exercises puts you in the right frame of mind to answer the questions from your true-self. Once you’ve finished writing in your Workbook, reflect on your day and then plan the day ahead. Simple!

Consistency Is Key.

It’s much better to write in your Workbook daily, rather than trying to catch up every couple of days. If you do miss a day for some reason, get right back on track the next day. Missing days is a very slippery slope. Falling behind is a sure way to fall off your program – and you don’t want that to happen!

Journaling about your life experience is a very good habit to cultivate. You must make time for it. Seriously!  Take all the time you need to write in your Workbook.

Just imagine how different your life would be if you spent all the time you’ve wasted watching television or movies working on what matters to you most. How much more successful would you be in life?
