Do you keep a journal? Read some Benefits of journaling for some motivation and inspiration.
Journaling is a great way to express emotions, brainstorm, record memories, doodle, problem solve and getting your thoughts down on paper.
I keep a couple of different kinds of journals.
One is where I only write when something big is happening, something I am having strong emotions about and need to express privately. This journal is a hard covered, more expensive book. Something that will keep over time.
The second is for ideas, thoughts, affirmations and any other miscellaneous items. This journal is of any notebook variety, not something I’d be upset not to have around in twenty years.
What type of journaling do you do? Do you have a preference on what kind journal you use?
Sometimes you just don’t feel like writing, here are some ideas for those days:
- create a collage
- make a wishlist
- put samples of pretty papers you’d like to use in a journal page
- cut and paste printables
Journals can be used for a relaxing time focusing on you. Take the time for yourself, it’s worth it.
Even if you don’t like to write much, it can be a creative outlet or a collection of your ideas. There are no rules to journaling.
