Have you been thinking of starting a journal or diary?
But just need an extra boost of encouragement on why to start.
Then read on below for our 6 benefits on starting a journal.
1. Enhance your writing skills
Being on technology all day can sometimes make you forget on developing your own handwriting skills. Starting a journal can help by prompting you to take up the pen again to journal down your day.
2. Set & Attain your Objectives
If your anything like me and need to write up a to do list to visually see what needs to be done, then a journal can be perfect for this too! Whether its short or long term goals, you can easily set up your daily/weekly/monthly tasks and feel that satisfaction from ticking each task off.
3. Relieve Stress
If you don't need a check-list or to improve your handwriting skills and just need to write out your emotions, then a journal can be perfect for this too. Especially if your someone who has decided to embark on the 'morning pages' routine (vis The Artists Way incentive). Simply putting your thoughts on paper, can help relieve some of that stress and working through your emotions, especially on rough days.
4. Boosts your Memory
Just by writing out your to-do list on paper, your less likely to forget what needs to be done for the day!
5. Record ideas on the go
Are you the type that suddenly has a good idea whether its for work or a project? Then a journal can be the perfect way of quickly jotting down those ideas before they escape!
6. Keep your thoughts organized
Sometimes when life can be overwhelming and you have a million and one things to remember and do, you can use your journal to plan out your day-to-day routine and organize them in categories of importance - this can be the perfect way to visually see what needs to be done first. This is especially handy for travel to-do lists too!
