If you are like me, then you live a very busy life. You have a multitude of responsibilities both at work and at home. You carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Unfortunately, there are many people who don’t have someone to help share their burden. That’s where keeping a journal can come in handy. Think of it as having a secret friend that you can tell anything to without judgment. Writing in a journal daily can help to relieve stress and unload some of your worries. A journal is a place where you can be you.
What Should You Put In Your Daily Journal?
There is a multitude of things you could write about in your journal. Truthfully, the sky is the limit! Your journal is personal so you can customize it to fit your needs. A journal should be functional. It shouldn’t feel like a burden when you sit down to write in it. The purpose of keeping a journal is to improve your mental/emotional health as well as adding a bit of organization to your life.
