To journal, or not to journal

To journal, or not to journal
Arguably, there are two types of people out there: those who don't engage in journaling and those who swear by it. If you're not into journaling, you might tune out when someone starts talking passionately about it. Well, surprise – we're in the passionate camp. But don't worry, if you're not a journaling enthusiast, we're not trying to push you away. Take a moment to consider the benefits and ideas we're about to share in this post.

Journaling Ideas

Journaling by definition is to write in a journal or diary. From there, the possibilities are endless. Journaling doesn’t have to look like a recount of everyday: Dear diary, today I woke up. It can absolutely be a way to write down the things you get up to, the good and the bad.

But it’s also an opportunity to slow down, if you have a ‘big’ thought, journaling can be a way to analyse it, perhaps come to a personal conclusion. Simply immerse yourself in your thoughts and see what happens. That’s another thing about journaling, it’s so personal. And when you write you shouldn’t be thinking of others and the opinion on what you are writing.

Your journal is yours, a physical copy of your inner monologue. Once you start, you’ll find yourself picking up the journal more frequently until… it becomes a habit. 

Benefits of Journaling

There are even scientifically proven benefits from writing in a journal. It has been proven to minimise stress which subsequently improves mental and physical health. Other benefits include heightened memory and productivity. Journaling itself feels productive, a release of overbearing thoughts and emotions. Your improved self awareness will enrich many aspects of life. 

If you now feel an itch to get your journaling ideas down on paper, you can scratch it by browsing our notebooks and journaling books on the Webb Street website.
