7 Reasons You Need to Start Journaling

Journaling is the act of writing down your thoughts, feelings, and ideas into a notebook. 

Journaling is for you. It helps you organize your thoughts, work through your feelings, and even just remember important things in your life. 

Here are 7 of the best reasons for keeping a journal to help you get started with your journaling journey!

One great reason to journal is to set your daily intentions and write down positive affirmations. Start your day with five minutes of journaling to write down an affirmation for yourself.

Intentions and Affirmations

Diving into your thoughts and letting them flow out onto paper can help you work through things. Journaling may even realize that you’ve been holding onto things that you don’t need to hold onto.

Self Care

If you have so much running through your mind that it's difficult to keep track, journaling can help. Use it to make to-do lists or to brain dump.

Organizing Your Thoughts

Are you an artist? A writer? A crafter? Journaling can help you decide what to focus on when it comes to your hobby of choice. You can brainstorm ideas, figure out what will work, and flesh out the ideas floating around in your mind.

Develop Ideas

We may not always understand why we feel a certain way or that we even feel that way. Thoughts and feelings are complex. Journaling can help us sort these things out.
