Keeping a journal is a great idea for everyone, regardless of age. There are so many benefits gained from taking a few minutes each day to record your thoughts in a journal. The costs are minimal and the payback is huge.
Journals are great for processing feelings.
Things are always a little clearer when we get them out of our heads and down on paper. ·Everything is a little more objective and realistic. ·You might be surprised at what you figure out about yourself if you take the time to keep a journal.
Work towards your goals with a journal.
A significant part of reaching goals is recording progress and prioritization. By writing about your goals each day, you can continually reaffirm your goals are worth achieving. How often have you set a goal and then forgotten all about it after a few days or a couple of weeks? If you write it down in a journal, there’s less chance that will happen. Record the progress you are making towards your goals. Make notes about new ideas to move closer to your goals. When you achieve a goal, you’ll be able to look back and remember how great it felt to accomplish it. The next goal will be even easier.
A journal will reduce the amount of stress in your life.
Journaling forces you to unplug and focus your mind. Sometimes the best thing for a stressed mind is to turn off the computer and sit quietly with your thoughts. When you record your challenges, your brain starts looking for solutions. Having a solution to a challenge relieves stress.
If you don’t already do so, consider keeping a journal for yourself. The benefits are considerable, and it doesn’t have to take more than a few minutes per day. Journaling is a great tool that doesn’t cost much at all. A pen and notebook are the only items required.
