No, we have left the Journal undated to be flexible and so that it can be started at any point in the year. It covers a 91-day/13-week period and is designed to be started at the beginning of the week.
At its core the Reboot Journal is a Habit Journal, but in reality it is much more than that.
Unlike many other habit or self-improvement Journals, which just give you basic blank templates to use and let you figure out the rest as you go along, the Reboot Journal takes the stress out of self-improvement by providing a fully guided and research backed blueprint that anyone can follow to make real and lasting positive changes in their lives.
This Journal includes an Introduction section, Habit-setting Templates, Daily Morning and Evening pages, Weekly Review and Planning pages and a 13-week Reflection section.
Because our goal is to help people create and sustain these positive changes, the journal incorporates and explains important, yet often forgotten, concepts such as the role of your self image or identity in driving your behaviours, the important science of how habits are formed and changed, and strategies you can use to help make habits stick. The introduction section of the Journal dives into these concepts in detail so that you understand them and use them to help you succeed.
Another feature which makes the Journal unique is the fact that we have woven all these powerful tools and concepts into beautifully designed Daily Morning and Evening pages. A great life is nothing more than a series of great days, and so our powerful daily format helps to keep you on track, helps you feel like you are in control of the things that are important to you in life and acts as a reliable structure you can follow to make everyday a success. This daily structure reduces your need for willpower and reduces decision fatigue.
We have distilled self-improvement theory from countless sources and proven concepts from science and psychology into 15 actionable habits and practices that you can easily introduce into your daily and weekly routines. We call these the 15 Reboot Habits and they include habits to improve your physical health, your mental and emotional state and to accelerate your personal growth.
You may be thinking that 15 Habits is a lot, but in fact these habits represent small and impactful changes that you can make in the many different areas of your life — so they are very manageable :)
We chose these 15 habits as they are impactful, and by incorporating them into your life they become powerful and positive levers of change which will make you happier, healthier and which will steer you on the road to becoming a better version of yourself .
The Introduction section of the Journal guides you through each of the 15 Reboot habits and explains in detail why each one is important and how you can implement it into your life. The Journal also contains ‘Habit-setting’ Templates, where you can customise each of these habits and practices to suit your needs at whatever stage you are at on your self-improvement journey.
This Journal is for anyone who is serious about making positive changes in their life. It is not a magic pill — it is a practical and research backed blueprint for action.
Maybe you resolved in the past to change things in your life, but ended up back where you started? Maybe you get overwhelmed with trying to become your best self and do too much at once that in the end you don’t make any real progress?
If this sounds like you, the Journal can help you make real change.
It focuses on improving the important areas of your life through the introduction of simple and easy to follow positive habits into your daily and weekly routines.
We can ‘Reboot’ our lives through taking control of our habits!
“Reboot” is a term that is often used with computers. It means to reset an operating system back to baseline, so that you force some programs that are not working to quit. You may do this because it’s slow, inefficient, or not functioning properly. ‘Rebooting’ gives the computer’s operating system and software programs a chance to start afresh and function effectively.
We chose the name ‘Reboot’ for the Journal to draw on the analogy between how a computer’s operating system governs the commands and actions of the computer and how as humans our choices and behaviours come from learned programs in our own operating system — our Brain. These different programs — our habits, routines and thought patterns — determine our choices and behaviors and ultimately determine our outcomes
Just as a software engineer designs or tweaks parts of a system, when we understand how habits from and can be changed, we too can be the engineers of our lives and “program in" the daily positive habits and behaviours we want to have.
