There are loads of reasons you should keep a journal.
Journaling is the rage these days. So somebody must be doing something right to suggest it. If it works for so many people, it is bound to be good for you too. Placing your thoughts on paper is like talking to your shrink, but the only cost is paper, pen, (or computer) and your time. They say it is great for clearing your thoughts. However, it could be more like a trustworthy BFF who is not going to blab all your deepest darkest secrets. So, where shall we begin? Here are the best reasons you should keep a journal.
Don' feel pretty enough? Don't feel good enough? Write I AM BEAUTIFUL and write the reasons WHY you are GOOD ENOUGH. That's one of the best reasons you should keep a journal. It works!
Have a hard time falling asleep at night? Write your fears and anxieties in your journal. This will wear you out and will make the monsters go away.
This is something like keeping a food journal. Write down your food, drink and activity for the day to help you keep track.
Write down what you are grateful for. It will do wonders for your mental health!
This could be for mental, physical, emotional or spiritual problems. For example, journaling lowers high blood pressure.
For example, are you having a hard time finding Mr. Right? (Join the club...) Writing down what you want from a man can help you find the right one for you.
Want to talk about something juicy? Want to talk about a person you just cannot stand? Write about whatever YOU want! Be yourself.
For example, are you pro-choice or pro-life? Are you a Democrat, Republican or Independent? What makes you tick?
This is self-explanatory.
Write a to-do list of what you need to get accomplished, which would be nice every day. Once everything is accomplished, take out some quality moments for yourself.
So, if you are not already into journaling, maybe you should be willing to give it a chance. For many, it is so clockwork-like, a habit, just like making your morning coffee, once you get into it. You don't have to be perfect. You don't have to edit it.
