Digital and papaer-based journals

I've tried traditional paper-based journals, a password protected file on my computer and even journaling apps. I've kept journals about my personal life, professional life and even my business. So what should you do?

Both digital and paper-based journals are useful. With digital journals, you can search old entries and never worry about losing anything. With paper-based journals, you're less likely to be distracted from your practice by notifications or social media. I recommend trying both for a week or so and then using what works for you.

How should I start...

  • What's on my mind?
  • How should I have reacted in hindsight?
  • How are things different now?
  • What would I say to a younger version of myself?
  • What am I grateful for?
  • What do I value?
  • Who helped me?

A personal and free therapist

But what if you're not a writer?

Journaling is kind of like having a personal therapist on retainer, and that's why I recommend journaling to people of all types.

It'll help you express yourself, think ideas through and create a record of your life. If you want to practice journaling, write a short entry at the same time every day. Or even just once a week.

  • Pick your journaling tool of choice.
  • Pick a topic to write about, e.g. your daily routine.
  • Set a timer.
  • While writing, don't stop to edit yourself or edit for punctuation.
  • When the timer sounds, re-read your entry and tidy it up

It’s okay if you stop doing it

Journaling doesn't have any rules.

After all, what you say in your journal is for you and you alone... at least at first. If you want to turn it into a public work later on. That's fine. If you want to stick in your wardrobe and forget what you ever said, that's fine too.

Just don't expect your ex to understand.

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

Shankul Varada

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.

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!

Sean Green

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

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!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

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.
