“This pouring thoughts out on paper has relieved me. I feel better and full of confidence and resolution.” - Diet Eman
I have realised that I practice two main types of journaling, best described as ‘daily reflection’ and ‘deep’ journaling.
Daily reflection journaling is what I do pretty much every day - a standard set of questions, usually completed around the same time that are intended to keep me on track, reminding me to reflect positively on the good things in my life, and to help me to be intentional about my day.
Deep journaling is something I do more occasionally when I have something on my mind or a decision to make, and where I find that sitting and writing a few unstructured pages really helps me to unlock (and unblock) what I am really thinking.
Putting pen to paper ALWAYS helps - how and why we do it is entirely up to us…
