It’s no secret that journals are my jam. But I also know that not everyone is immediately sold on journaling. Well I wanted to share three benefits I’ve found by keeping a journal that may inspire you to start journaling too. You don’t have to be a prolific writer or deep thinker all you need is a fabulous journal, your favorite pen and some time to sit and focus on your thoughts.
1. Clear your head
When you’re life is busy between, work, family and any other responsibilities, keeping a journal is beneficial to clear your head. Whether you choose to do this in the morning or at night, use your journal to organize your thoughts and pull everything out of your head so you can start taking action. You can use your journal to write down your to do list, ideas, things that have been resting on your heart and even websites you want to check out.
Using a journal to free your mind of everything gives you a clearer head to do what you need to do that day and to also plan for the next day too.
2. Memory Keeper
Memories are big for me and journaling is one way I can keep all those special moments in one place. This is also one of the main reasons I love journaling. I can go back and read an entry and immediately be transported back to that day and I instantly remember everything that happened. Keeping a journal as a new mom, a bride-to-be or as you take a big trip, by keeping a journal you will be able to go back to those moments and remember all the special things from that moment long after its passed.
3. Gain Clarity
While some may talk out their problems or ideas, I like to write it all out. It’s when I journal that I express what I’m thinking without a filter. I don’t have to worry about anyones feelings or be concerned about how my thoughts come across and it’s usually while I’m journaling that I gain perspective or clarity that I wouldn’t have had if I didn’t write it down.
There are plenty of other benefits to keeping a journal but these 3 are what I feel are the biggest benefits to keeping a journal. If you’re ready to start journaling begin in style with one of our blank or guided journals.
