Daily Diary
By Jayne Warwicker

A quick and simple way for you to see yourself moving forward is to keep a daily diary. A daily diary will do much more than allow you to see yourself moving forward, you can release your hidden feelings helping you to de-stress. A diary will also help you spot routines and patterns for both positive and negative feelings.

A diary will help you see what you are achieving. For many, we are so busy that we don’t actually see what we have achieved in the day. People with a large amount of self-belief appreciate what they have, and notice what they have achieved each day, this is often small achievements. Ensure you add these up as the small happy achievements add up!

You need to commit to keeping this diary; the diary is for your eyes only, add to the diary every day, and keep it locked safely away. At least once a month re-read all the daily entries in the previous month and notice how much you have moved forward, also become aware of any patterns you have developed

Examples of things to include

  • Overview of the day

In the overview section, you need to be aware of what is currently going on in your mind. Record all your thoughts and feelings; today I met an old friend in a coffee shop, I thought it was great to get out of the house and to forget about my problems. I am looking forward to meeting my friend again.

This section will record your highs and lows, the triggers and your emotions. Record any of your thoughts, as you start to write open up your mind and let your unconscious mind take over, record all of these thoughts and feelings.

Record the positives, the steps forward and any negatives and steps back. Why did you have a good/bad day? Who did you meet that change your state? Where were you? What were you saying to yourself?

  • What did I enjoy most about my day?

Even if you are currently unhappy with your life, there will be a time in your day that you enjoyed more than the rest of the day, what part of the day did you most enjoy? In many cases you will be having a great day, what part of this day was the best?

Why was this part of your day good? What were you doing? What made it fun and exciting? Who were you with? What would you like to do more off?

  • What would I like to do less of in my day?

Think about what you didn’t enjoy about this day, don’t think about it too much, imagine you could see your day as a TV show, watching yourself on the television. Which part of your day did you not enjoy? Why did you not enjoy this?

  • What did I learn today?

We all learn every day; this is one of the things that drive humans forward – our quest for knowledge. Think about the things you enjoyed and the things you didn’t enjoy in your day and ask yourself for each individual item “what have a learnt from this?”

Record anything you have learnt about yourself; how you act in different situations, what you enjoy doing, how you handle problems, how others effect you, what makes you laugh. Write down anything you were not originally aware off.

  • If I could, what would I do differently?

At times, we act spontaneously in many cases. This can be a positive thing, at other times you may regret the way you spontaneously acted. We have all heard people say “in hindsight I should have…” and we often talk ourselves out of doing something new and then later regret it.

We can learn from the past, look to the future and live in the present. You can’t change the past and you don’t want to because you have already learnt from these experiences. What you can ask yourself is, “if you were in a similar situation again, what would you now do differently.

 Try it…what can you lose?!

My Testimonials

“My confidence has increased, and I can say ‘No’ in a positive and productive way and put my wellbeing first without having a negative impact on my professional life. You have made me realise that it is not personal failings, but that I just need to implement some tools and techniques to make long-lasting changes.

Your constant support while I implemented my new working practices was invaluable, and I feel I may have faltered without it – you kept me moving forward at all times.

People seem to be approaching me more, and I feel cleansed and not laden down with stuff in my head, and I can complete tasks so much better, and I feel more on top of work.


“Installed me with Confidence”

Jayne has transformed my life! I am confident, empowered and truly believe in myself. Life seemed to be a rollercoaster of negatives, which lead from one disaster to another. It was not until I met Jayne, that things started to move in a positive direction…

James Flanagan – Entrepreneur


Jayne’s programme is contagious! After each and every session, I was champing at the bit for the next session. I can honestly say that within 3 months, my whole life had turned from negative thoughts to positive vibes. I would recommend this to anybody looking to find the old and new you. Sometimes you just get lost…


Vicki Long – Business Owner


Just do it!!! I am a very sceptical person by nature, but, I was totally wrong on this occasion. Jaynes 3 month programme was well worth the time and investment. Jayne helped me to refocus and enhance my career to achieve exactly what I have been wanting for some time…

James – Finance Manager


The support Jayne has given me as a life coach is fantastic, you can tell that she genuinely cares about her clients. After a bitter divorce, Jayne helped me refocus and come through a very difficult time. Working with Jayne has been life-changing for me.



I was full of negative emotions and unable to progress in life in general. Following Jaynes programme, I have been able to see the wood from the trees, and I am on the path to success again.

Dan Green – Business Owner


Jayne's personal coaching program is an exceptional experience that I would highly recommend to anyone seeking to improve their personal or professional life. From the first session, I was impressed with Jayne's ability to connect with me and understand my unique goals and challenges. She is a gifted coach who has an uncanny ability to ask the right questions, offer insightful observations, and guide me towards solutions that I would not have discovered on my own.
