About Pause The Journal

Looking for a way to be more intentional, create your dreams, and have even more impact? Pause: The Journal can help!

Rachael provides ninety days for journaling, plus a walk-through of how to get the most out of this journal. Pause: The Journal is the perfect compliment to her book Pause: Harnessing the Life Changing Power of Giving Yourself a Break.

According to Rachael, a pause is defined as an intentional shift in behavior. Journaling in itself is a pause. A pause is about taking a time-out to create the space for your inner voice to be heard and to align your actions with that voice in service to creating your dreams and more of what you want in life. That’s what Pause: The Journal is all about: taking a time-out to create the space for your inner voice to be heard and to align your actions with that voice in order to create your dreams.

Rachael O’Meara’s will guide you on your own pause journey to:

  • Pause in daily reflection to process and visualize so you can be more focused, clear, and empowered

  • Retrain your brain to orient towards the positive through celebrating, gratitude and acknowledgement prompts

  • Take incremental, inspired action to move towards your vision, desired outcome, or dream

Pause: The Journal is the gateway to help you capture, process, and move toward your dreams using a consistent practice of intentional writing.
