Journaling: A Time To Reflect

Journaling: A Time To Reflect

We need time to grasp and internalize what is happening to us in our daily lives. Even if we cannot get over something bad or negative, we would be able to successfully soothe our minds by journaling.

Journaling comes at our rescue, as spending time alone penning down your thoughts with complete awareness is also a form of self-reflection.

Choosing Paper Is Better

Having a physical ‘thought notebook’ is many times better than using a PC or iPad to pen your thoughts. Words take longer to form in paper, making us process them, and understand ourselves in a better way. Written thoughts ground us, make us come to the present moment, and take us out of the world-bubble for a while. Having an appealing notebook also makes us open it daily.

An Observant's Point Of View

Writing down your situation, event or problem provides us with a different perspective, while mapping it for us to see from an observant point of view. 

When we see it penned in front of us, we discover new details that were not visible when the problem was just in our minds.

The Importance Of The Date

Writing a date while penning one’s thoughts makes us subconsciously process that it is an event in the past, providing a certain detachment from the problem, especially if one is trying to get over something.

Our negative experiences and things we regret are neatly tagged as the past, removed from our present selves, making our mind sound and decluttered.

Write Honestly

Writing without any self-censoring, or hiding is a great way to heal ourselves. 

We don’t have to worry about filtering our stream of thoughts in this ‘safe zone’. Our thoughts need to be laid bare as they are. It is the only way we understand ourselves, which is priceless.

Be Positive

Write about the good stuff, not just any negative thing that you face in your day. 

As you put your words down of the things that make you happy, it starts to rub off on you.

Start Small

So that you don’t find journaling overwhelming, just start by penning a few lines on the thoughts that have occurred in your mind, with no details. 

You will pick yourself up from there if you are regular. Write using lists and bullets so that your thoughts are organized and start to become meaningful.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
