So, to start off this topic – 5 Reasons to Journal, let us first take the time to define journaling.
What is journaling?
Journaling is the process of recording one’s feelings, thoughts, and experiences.
Journals offer a way to track our progress, maturity, and growth through self-awareness, relationships, developmental stages, and life transitions. If done with true honesty and openness, journaling can help us uncover hidden truths, traumas, and beliefs that have unconsciously guided us in our lives.
Resist the urge to rush through the journaling process. There will be days when you write more. And some days, you may journal less. You do not necessarily have to journal everyday as long as it is a consistent regular schedule.
