10 reasons to do Journal writing
What is Journaling? A personal record of occurrences, experiences and reflections kept on a regular basis, a diary. Even if it is just a matter of a few sentences every day, is one of the habits that can have the greatest impact on everything in our lives. There are plenty of reasons why journal writing can be so rewarding.
Our journals become our best secret buddy.
Sometimes, in our lives we find that people do not really understand our true feelings. Thus when we pen down our feelings, journal writing offers us an unpaid therapy and counseling. It provides guidance in finding answers or finding comfort to our insecurities.
It not only improves our lives, but also we become more aware of it: Our lives become sharper to us. Who we are, what we are, and what the world is, and where we are going in it, or even where we want to go – these are but a few of the questions that writing can shine a light on – over time.
Improves the use of language.
Language is indeed a super power, and covers so much more than just words. It is emotion, understanding and connection. It is a living history, and dreams of the future, that we are carrying with us constantly. And this – practicing the use of language – writing obviously helps greatly in, often far more so than mere speaking.
Keeps us focused and organised.
When we write we usually write in full sentences, whereas if we listen to our own thoughts they are often half-baked and scattered. Writing can help in making more of our thoughts into full sentences, which leads us to be both calmer and better positioned to deal with whatever issues we may face.
Tracks our growth.
Writing journal daily helps us keep record of our life walk and past experiences, how we managed to succeed, and be victorious during adversity or difficulties. Way All this helps one in evolving as a person, as a human.
Guides in the searching our purpose.
By writing journals, you not only can write down a listing of ambitions and aspirations, you’ll be able to expand on them. you’ll monitor your progress and still motivate yourself by documenting new developments and achievements.
Helps us visualize and reflect.
Our lives can become very hectic as responsibilities and expectations start to consume us. Journaling is a way to take a step back from all of that and reflect on yourself. You may begin to see patterns in your behavior, or in the behavior of others.
Helps in expressing gratitude.
The great part about journaling is that it’s one of the few areas of life where no one is going to judge you. There’s no one single right way to journal. So rather than complaints you write more on grateful thoughts.
Keeps you happy.
Who does not feel happy venting it all out? Everyone does. It is sure to kee you calm and cheer you up in difficult times.
Benefits well being.
Writing down your thougths and feelings helps you understand them more clearly. Anxious feelings can lead to stress and journalling allows you to process your thoughts and feelings, and as a result eases them. Futhermore, it enables you to idenfity the root cause of your anxiety if you’re unsure of. Hence benefiting both mentally and physically.
Taking time to journal is the greatest investment we can gift ourselves. It’s a powerful way to get to know and reclaim ourselves. It opens the doorway into the mystery within, it’s magical.
