Sunday Night Journal
The Sunday Night Journal created by life coach Aurora M. Suarez is the low-maintenance friend who makes little demands but empowers you to have a positive and productive year. This 52-week journal and planner was conceptualized to be a weekly Sunday ritual that would help you look forward to Monday and the rest of the week ahead. The weekly prompts such as What do I love about myself?” and “If I didn’t have to worry about money, what would I be doing right now?” help you be more self-aware so you can make mindful and aligned choices for the week ahead, and for the year. The planner pages are there so you can review the week that was so you can “feel gratitude for the grace in your life, set meaningful priorities and identify the positive experiences YOU want.”
