Svadhyaya – Self-Study – Day 9 – Journal Day

Happy Thursday Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Niyamas into our day before we start our special Yamas Holiday month. This is our last specific Svadhyaya / self-study Day before the end of the year, so I am going to again focus on self-study today with a special Journal Day prompt. I have been doing a lot of journaling lately, more frequently than just Svadhyaya Days, since I have had a lot of interesting life events to document. I am beginning to think about my New Year’s Resolutions and which various world holidays to tie in with Yamas practices for this month, so I am selecting journal prompts based on that today!

PS If you are not into journaling, perhaps focus on the other main Svadhyaya practice today – study of sacred texts. This does not have to be Yogic Texts.. I enjoy reading the Bhagavad Gita, but if you practice or are interested in any religion, please read whatever resonates with you! You can access the Gita for free in our App!

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to make a self-reflective journal entry for Svadhyaya Day. Today, I am doing a few prompts I found that I found interesting. If my picks do not resonate with you, please scroll through our Journal Prompts Pins below!

Journal Day

  • What are some of your favorite holiday traditions? What new traditions do you want to make?
  • What are you naturally drawn to? What do you spend your time reading or studying?
  • If you could change just one thing about yourself, what would it be? How do you think your life would be better? Have you ever tried to change it?

  1. After last months Svadhyaya Day I bought one of the suggested guided journal dl and I love it. It doesn’t have a lot of room for writing but I am more of a doodler so it works for me. I haven’t been writing everyday but a lot more then I ever have been. I will be making another entry today for sure.
