The Benefits Of Journaling Daily
Most people don't take full use of journaling. Don't let that be you. It is not a difficult activity. And, it can propel you to more success. I have done journaling most of my adult life. It's been quite useful to me.
And yet, to some people it seems pointless and a complete waste of time. They're wrong. The key is to make it a daily habit, not just a few times a year activity. You get out of it what you put into it.
Actually, many successful people keep a personal diary. And, they make it...a daily habit. What do they know that you do not?
Consider this: You can learn a great deal about yourself and gain valuable insights about your life that you may not get any other way.
It is too easy in life to careen from one wall to another having no clue as to why things just seem to happen to you. Journaling is a way to learn from your past.
Side note: While you can keep a digital journal, most people find that keeping a paper journal is more beneficial. Writing has a certain appeal that thinking alone does not have. And, I've found I am more likely to review my journal if it is on paper.
Self-knowledge is key to finding your authentic self. Journaling can be the tool that gets you there.
Use the following suggestions to get insights into your thoughts and life:
Go back over your day. It is always good to reflect on the day you’ve had. Don’t let what happen pass you by without lessons to be learned.
1. Write down what took place.
2. List the progress you’ve made towards goals.
3. Work through your fears.
4. Pick one strategy to improve yourself.
5. Keeping track of your goals.
List your goals each day. (Writing them down every day is a powerful way to remain focused. Writing them down also makes it easier to see what results you are getting.)
6. In your journal list five things daily you're thankful for.
Watch how your outlook on life shifts. Studies have shown that being grateful brings feelings of happiness. Isn't that one of the benefits of journaling you don't want to miss.
7. Looking back, what difficulties have you faced in life?
8.Also, make a list of the things in your life that you believe are keeping you from being happy or achieving your goals. What are you going to do about them?
Again, keeping regular track of your goals is an excellent way to stay on track.
9. Make a plan for the future.
10. Make use of journaling prompts.
There are literally thousands of journaling prompts available online that you can use at any time. To get you started, here are a few examples:
