7 Helpful Tips for Starting and Keeping a Journal ...

Writing in a journal is such a great exercise, therapeutic in so many ways, but actually starting and keeping a journal can sometimes get a little harder.

Whether you write it down in longhand or make use of WordPress, LiveJournal, or another platform, it's all too easy to stop after a while.

One day you're just too busy to write;

a few nights later, you're just too tired to jot down your feelings or the minutiae of your day;

and after that, it gets easier and easier to skip your writing time.

However, whether you're trying to improve your self confidence, dealing with a bad breakup, or simply trying to work the writing muscle, starting and keeping a journal is really worth it.

1. Pick a Preferred Method

No form of journal writing is better than the other.

Some people are adamant about keeping handwritten journals while others prefer the ease and convenience of using a writing program or creating an internet journal.

Whatever you like is fine, there's no right or wrong choice.

The key to starting and keeping a journal is to do what makes you comfortable.

You might get writer's cramp really easily, or perhaps you prefer the authenticity of actively writing down your feelings.

Just do you.
