Benefits of Journaling

Do you know about Journaling? A journal is a written record of your thoughts, experiences, and observations. You can write in your journal daily, or only when you feel the urge. You can write with a fountain pen in a leather-bound book if that inspires you, or you can write with your lucky pencil.  Journaling began decades ago in my life and it has helped in a vast number of ways. When I sit down to write in my journal I have to focus on putting my thoughts on the blank page. The process of doing this causes me to adjust my surroundings.  I can keep it totally quiet or play soft music.

Knowing that I’m preparing to write in my journal relieves stress just by the change in my environment to help me be able to focus on my thoughts and the words moving across the page. As you journal, you will take moments to record events that are taking place in your life. This allows you to go back and create a life chronicle that you or your family can go back and read later in the future. This helps you record your memories as you focus on the moments of your day. It will give you clarity and allow easier recall in the future.

A journal is a great place to express ideas you may have for things you want to accomplish in your life. They can be personal or business related items. It’s a way of recording them and not counting on your memory to retain them as you can always go back and read over your idea lists. Many of us are creatures of habit and we like to have a routine in our life. Sitting down to write in your journal could be as soothing as sitting down to a cup of coffee or tea. It helps you create a daily habit that allows you to relax and get out thoughts, feelings, ideas and stress that you hold in. This routine will help you have a more peaceful day and life overall.

When expressing yourself on the page it becomes difficult to see the point in fibbing to your journal. It helps you be honest about what you are feeling, the thoughts associated with events and what is truly important to you. We all write down our hopes and dreams and what we wish we could accomplish. It is proven that those that write down their goals achieve more in life than those that don’t write them down. The act of writing it down helps you clarify and make them more real in your thoughts. Once you make a decision as to what is important to you then you can begin figuring out the steps needed to take action to make them happen. When you journal you can be you. That paper isn’t going to judge your thoughts or feelings like social media, friends or family. This lets you express yourself and explore your thoughts as you work out what are you and what you really want without the pressure of others.

The more you journal the more you will go inside of yourself to reveal insights and comprehend you better. We are complex beings and understanding why we do something takes time and real thought. This helps you figure that out and make changes where you feel you need them. A journal can be anything you want it to be. It can be your written thoughts, it can be drawings, and it can be quotes or songs. Journaling can be anything you need or want it to be based on how you are feeling on any given day. The beauty is the more creative you are the more creative you will become.

Journaling can help you physically and emotionally with dealing with your life. I already stated it was a stress reliever but it also can help you heal faster. It also helps you process and heal past wounds, deal with the present and shape your future without judgement. In some ways it’s similar to therapy but done in private with your own thoughts and words. Journaling is great to help you work out decisions to make, problems you face, feelings you need to express and goals you want to accomplish. It can help your life become more productive and clear.  Journaling can be utilized to keep you focused on what matters most to you and in doing so make you more productive, give you a feeling of accomplishment at the end of each day and thankful for the day you had. Add journaling to your daily life so that you can be the best you that you can be.

There are many ways you can begin journaling. You can purchase a notebook or go all out and get a hard bound leather journal. It’s really a personal preference as to what you enjoy when keeping a journal.  I maintain a journal simply for the love of writing. I take sensual pleasure in the velvety looping of ink across the creamy surface of a page, or in the private time with my thoughts at the end of a hectic day. I find it comforting or therapeutic to pour out my emotions in writing. And the other side of journaling is reading. I can always go back to old journals and find windows into my past.

  4. Hi, nice to meet you Romilaa, I love journals , when I was in my schooling I used to write every day and maintain a journal for it. The joy of writing it manually in a book is priceless. I stopped after my schooling as I was busy with studies. But now after so many years, I started writing it again. But this time it’s via the electronic media. I miss using the pen but I guess this technology has its share of advantages too.

  7. Indeed journaling is amazing. You know when i began blogging three years back it was meant to be a journal of my life. I intended to puts it all out on a post. But well over the years….

  9. I don’t know why. But, I cannot bring myself to writing on beautiful journals/notebooks. They are so pretty, isn’t it? I try to, these days and it is helping me a lot in streamlining my blogging activities.

  10. There is nothing better and more therapeutic than writing one’s thoughts on a paper. In recent times, the time constraint has actually made things a bit difficult for those who used to love sharing their thoughts in personalized journal. But still there are people who finds sanity in sharing their stories on paper first and then on any other medium.

  11. Journaling is definitely therapeutic and I keep more than one. My favorite is my gratitude journal as it always lifts my spirits! Thank you for a lovely post, Romilaa! Thank you for hosting her, Vasantha!
