I will be honest it is something that intrigues me, and I have dabbled in it, here and there, but have not set my mind to it, to get into a daily routine.
Some like to journal first thing in the morning to start the day and others like to end their day journaling as a way of wrapping it up, a brain dump you might say, with all their thoughts written down, maybe in hopes of getting a better night’s sleep.
Journaling has really become the new way of collecting your thoughts and writing them down in this personal book that is for your eyes only. A place where you can be open, honest, and true with yourself. Writing down your dreams, your goals and all your wishes as well maybe expressing your hurt and anger of the day. A space where you can be you, with no judgement, no criticism, on what you feel or why you feel it. Look at it as a new and improved version of our diaries we had growing up, only with bigger pages and no lock and key.
Journaling can offer a wide range of benefits, both for your mental and emotional well-being.
Here are some key advantages to Journaling...
Here is the journal I am presently using; I love that it has motivational and inspirational quotes for each entry. This one and many more can be found on Amazon.
Over time, your journal can serve as a valuable historical record of your life, thoughts, and experiences. It can be a source of nostalgia and reflection, should you decide to look back on it one day.
It doesn’t have to be a huge time commitment, take maybe 10 minutes a day and depending on your personal goals and the way you approach journaling, you may experience a combination of the above benefits.
That would be a win in my books!
It's a versatile and easy practice that can be done anywhere and will significantly enhance various aspects of your life with minimal time and cost involved.
