12 benefits of Journaling

Some people find journaling appealing, while others find it to be a tedious activity. If you don't currently keep a journal, you should think about starting one. There are numerous advantages to keeping a daily journal of your thoughts, life, and goals.

Journaling can improve our memory, problem-solving skills, achievement, emotional and physical health.

Take a look at the following benefits of Journalling: 

  1. A journal keeps track of life. Have you ever wondered if a certain event occurred in 1996 or 1997? A journal is a good way to keep track of important events in life
  2. A journal can be cathartic. When we get the tough stuff out on paper, we feel better. Journaling gives our emotional health a quick boost.
  3. You'll accomplish more. According to studies, simply writing down goals increases their likelihood of being met.
  4. You can see how far you've come. When you write down your thoughts and your life, you have them right in front of you. It's simple to see how far life has or has not progressed. Simply reviewing previous entries can reveal a lot.
  5. You will advance. When you record the most important events of the day, you will begin to create new events. If you keep recording the same old boring stuff every day, you'll be embarrassed or annoyed with yourself. You'll try new things in order to write about something interesting.
  6. You'll accomplish more. According to studies, simply writing down goals increases their likelihood of being met.

  10. You'll be among friends. Many celebrities kept diaries. Among those who believed in the power of journaling were John D. Rockefeller, George Patton, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Winston Churchill, Marie Curie, and Mark Twain.

Consider keeping a journal with pen and paper rather than a computer. While using a computer is more convenient, writing engages the mind more deeply. Some people find journaling appealing while others think it sounds like an incredibly boring activity. If you don’t currently write in a journal regularly, you might want to reconsider.
