With the prolonged shut downs and stay at home orders due to Covid-19 many have been forced into self reflection. Now self reflection can seem ominous but in actuality can be a really positive thing if we use it well.
Journaling allows for that positive self reflection. I myself keep a lot of journals...🙈 The two most important ones for me have been my spiritual as well as my gratitude journals. For some people keeping just one journal and cataloging it is more manageable; think bullet Journaling, a topic for another blog post...
So what ARE the benefits of journaling? Needless to say this list can be expanded...
▪︎Keep Thoughts organized.
▪︎Helps you with setting, tracking and achieving goals.
▪︎Record ideas on the go.
▪︎Allow for self reflection.
▪︎Helps improve your overall communication skills.
▪︎Track habits, think water drinking, exercise etc.
▪︎Gives ideas room for growth. For example, the act of taking a business idea and putting it to paper makes it real and tangible and allow you to see how possible it is to bring that business idea to life; making it a reality.
So what's stopping you? Simply put, journaling is good for the internal you, helping you to maintain good mental health.
