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.

  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.

1. Write down your daily goal each day

This is by far my favorite of all the journaling ideas on this list. It’s also a crucial part of my morning routine, and something I’ve been doing daily for over five years. Every morning, I wake up, grab my journal, and re-write my goals. This is a daily practice for me—I’ll never miss a day for the rest of my life.
