Habits Define Our Success
There is nothing more powerful and effective as a habit. Our repetition, routine, rituals and daily actions become our habits and eventually define our success and happiness.
Our habits make us survive, thrive and live ahead, even during hard times. Each repeated action we do becomes a habit, as we add fuel to the fire. The more we do it, the more it is reinforced.

"We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience." John Dewey The Benefits of Journaling Research reveals that people who journal have a 25% increase in performance when compared to people who do not journal. Journaling helps improve well-being after traumatic and stressful events. Journaling improves communication skills. Writing reflects clear thinking, and in turn, clear communication. Journaling before bed decreases cognitive stimulus, rumination, and worry, allowing you to fall asleep faster. Reflective writing reduces intrusive and avoidant thoughts about negative events. The Goals of Keeping A Journal You can bring your problems to a journal. Journaling is you figuring things out and clearing your head. Leave your destructive thoughts in your journal. We all carry around destructive thoughts about the things that went wrong. Instead of holding our thoughts in our head, we can put it down on paper. Keep a journal for your grandchildren. Fifty years from now, our own notebooks will be around to astonish and inspire our grandchildren, unlike our tweets and Facebook posts. Journal for your future self. Produce something that you can look back on and learn from.
Forget all the rules others impose about a journal. Do what works for you.
