Episode 53: Journaling as a Lifestyle with Nathan Ohren


In this episode, I'm talking all things journaling with Nathan Ohren, founder of Write for Life and host of the award-nominated podcast Journal Talk. We both battled through our colds to record this conversation and, against all odds, we had a great chat! Nathan has been journaling for 28 years and has a lot of wisdom to share about journaling and personal development.We discuss:

  • Nathan's personal journaling story
  • The three ingredients for a sustainable journaling practice
  • How creating a habit out of journaling helps us get to life-changing material
  • Handwritten journaling vs. digital journaling
  • Nathan's top tips for dealing with resistance to journaling

...and more!At the end of the episode, Nathan reveals that he was nominated for the health and fitness category in the 2014 Podcast Awards. The awards ceremony took place earlier this month and a different podcast was ultimately chosen for the final prize, but he did amazingly well to be nominated alongside giants like ESPN, Disney and NPR!
