Day One is my digital life journal.
I started with journalling by writing Day Evaluations, evaluating my day and noting interesting and memorable things that have happened to me during the day.
Since then however, I adopted a more open approach to documenting my memories and life in a way that doesn't stop me from being in the moment and just enjoying things and experiences.
I am very open to the public sharing both the things I know and like and also the different little things that happen to me, so I use IFTTT to log and archive my public activity from Instagram and Twitter into Day one.
Photo a Day
I make a picture of me every day and put it in the journal. Often doing it a new and different places and saying how I feel about the day. I want to do a collage of these pictures in the future. Sometimes I put more than one photo there. The idea is that I can replicate what happened to me from that day just from the photos.
Day One has a pretty awesome
activity stream feature where it tracks the places you have been and visited to across your day and you can
check in into those places and add some photos or comments to go alongside these check ins. I use this a lot and I especially love looking back at all the places I've been to and things I've done over time later by exploring Day One map.
I also love tagging entries by country and geo tagging every entry. And I use tags like
new city or
new country or
new .. often.
Writing about my life in a more open and free way. If something memorable happened to my life or I've been through something or want to say something, I write it there.
My dream journal. I want to lucid dream and to do that you need to remember your dreams. You also need to get into the habit of making reality checks. I write about my dreams briefly in this journal and note down common themes about them, if any.
I use IFTTT to automatically post my public activity from Twitter / Instagram / Facebook to this journal. Since I do want to lead a more open life, I very often post in the public outlets and share my experiences there so I want to have those experiences in Day One together with my more private memories.
Contains very short entries. If I am feeling sad or happy about something, I write a small entry and say what I feel and put it there. It helps me be more conscious and honest with myself, my thoughts and feelings.
In similar vein to
Evaluation. I try to track and be more conscious about my physical progress of me trying to become a stronger version of me physically. I post my progress pictures and my own commentary and thoughts there.
I also have a dedicated journal where I put all the memories I have shared with my family.
