5 Reasons Why You Should Start Journaling

Feeling off, or think something is missing in your life? The secret to unlocking these emotions and aspirations could be as simple as keeping a journal. Below are our top 5 reasons why starting a journal will add some wonderful benefits to your daily routine.

1.  Reach Personal Goals

Scientists say that people who write down their goals and physically note their dreams are more likely to follow through and achieve their them. Whether you prefer free writing or making bullets points, use your prefered writing style to clarify what you want in life on paper.  Try novel ways like charts or doodles too!

2.  Reduce Stress in your Life

Help release bottled up emotions by putting them into words. Write down your worries to reduce any anxiety.  Getting your emotion down on paper allows you to read through your thoughts and is a great way to tune in to yourself.

3.  Make the Most out of your Week

Calendars are awesome, but what about a quick checklist for each day? Many people utilize weekly and monthly planners, but whether you are a student, full-time parent, or entrepreneur, having a flexible daily checklist will help you best utilize your time and leave you fulfilled at the end of the day!

4.  Release your Inner Creativity

Creativity can’t be forced, and comes when you least expect it.  Jot down your sudden ideas in a journal for handy reference later. Keep a small journal for those office business meetings, or use a notebook as a dream journal; you never know when that next great idea will strike!

5.  Reconnect with Yourself

Most adults feel like they don’t need a “childish diary”, but keeping note of your random thoughts, actions, and emotions through a fun outlet is an amazing way to capture memories. These things may seem mundane now, but will be amazing to look back on in the future. You never stop growing, and taking the time to reflect on who you are and how far you have come is a huge factor your personal success.
