Journaling: One Act Many Benefits

Journaling: One Act Many Benefits

Journaling enhances our state of awareness and assists in self-reflection, acting as a compost bin for our mental clutter.

Reading and writing require attention. Journaling, the act of putting your thoughts on paper, is a key to the foundation of mindfulness, and our presence of mind. One doesn’t have to be a great writer to start journaling, and can opt for gratitude journaling, creative journaling, mindful journaling, or simply keeping a diary.

The Four Pillars Of Journal Writing

  1. Why: The main goal or purpose of our practice of journaling. We need to decide whether it is just an outlet to remove mental clutter or do we seek to be more creative or at peace.
  2. How: Deciding how we need to practise journaling and how convenient and easy it would be for us. We can opt for writing on a small gadget or notebook to increase accessibility and maintain a routine.
  3. When: Most people opt out of journaling as they see it as a huge time and energy commitment, something that can be avoided if we decide using the ‘why’ and the ‘how’.
  4. Let Go Of Perfectionism: Don’t feel pressured to write the perfect journal. Make adjustments and enjoy the process to reap full benefits.

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!
