If you’re journaling for self-improvement, you can:
  • Track goals, your mood, and habits. This is a good way of understanding what triggers you may have in your life, what’s working for you and what’s causing anxiety or stress. 
  • Document your decision-making process. I’ve often found making decisions to be stressful. Having a place to organize thoughts can be helpful.
  • Use a stream of consciousness writing session to better understand yourself and emotions. You might be surprised to uncover how your thoughts connect.

Benefits of journaling
  • Can help us find meaning in our feelings, improve sleep by getting thoughts off our chest, and even improve relationships.
  • To just write them down is not enough. Taking time to think through the structure of your writing and the details you include is a good way to do this, psychotherapists say.
  • You can free write, keep entries very structured, or wander somewhere in between as you see fit.

Bullet Journals

A Bullet Journal (BuJo) is a tool that can help you organize your life and improve your mental health. It is more beneficial than a checklist or a to-do list and a calendar. It is used to track anything from moods to sleep or periods.

The 'creative', do-it-yourself part of a bullet journal works as a cathartic process on your mind.

Journaling Before You Get Out of Bed

Try grabbing your notebook as soon as your alarm goes off and writing for a few minutes before your feet even hit the ground.

This way you know it will get done, and the activity first thing in the morning may help wake your brain up.
