I am a huge corn ball when it comes to documenting my life. I am a huge photo snapper and really enjoy taking pictures of everything that I can. After watching Kelly in the City’s One Second a Day Video, I started researching creative methods to document life’s big and small moments and found several that I really liked:
1 Second Everyday
So following suit after Kelly, I really want to start using the app that she used to create her video. I loved seeing how all of the little moments added up to paint such an accurate picture of her year! You can download the app for yourself here for only $2.99, a small price to pay for such a cool end result.
101 Things to Do in 1001 Days
I absolutely love this project and had such a fun time making the list. I can’t wait to start completing as many things as I can! Think of this list as a bucket list with a due date, 1001 days from the day you start. This is a fun nudge towards actually doing all of the things that you always plan on getting to later, but never do. Check out my list here for inspiration!
All aboard! Next stop memory lane! This app shows you what you were doing one year, two years, and three years ago today. Timehop pulls from your social media accounts and compiles a nice little trip down memory lane for you to view and enjoy everyday. You can download the app for free here.
I haven’t personally used this app yet, but I discovered it recently and have been really itching to check it out! It has gotten mixed reviews but I definitely think that it is something worth looking into. Reporter basically tracks different information regarding your everyday habits with randomly timed surveys every day. For example: Are you at work right now? Or how many coffees have you had today? ” Reporter can illuminate aspects of your life that might be otherwise immeasurable” (App home page) Check this new app out here.
One Sentence Everyday
One of my friends was telling me about her one sentence journaling exercise that she practices. She writes one sentence every single day, may it be a quote, or an anecdote from her day in a journal. I think that this is a really cool way to capture the way that you are feeling while giving yourself something really neat to look back on after an extended period of time.
I hope that ya’ll enjoyed some of these journaling methods! Let me know how you document life’s little moments! I would love to hear some new ideas.
