Not going to lie, stepping into May, I was shocked. Holy carp, I have a limited amount of time to get my business together.
That being said, I’m not doing to bad. Recently I hit a bit of an emotionally hard spot in my life, feeling hollow in my relationship with God. I then linked that to the fact that I have forced myself into so much stress, and I gave up one of the few things that keep me sane-journaling. Some call it keeping a diary, but let’s face it, Journaling sounds similar to Journey, and that’s what those journals hold.
That then gave me an idea for a blog post about journaling, because not only is it beneficial for your mental health, but also for your writing skills, so here’s five reasons why journaling is something you should look into.
1. Journaling can be Kept Private
Often times I think people attempt to keep things bottled up, and that leads to alot of pent up frustrations. While I could suggest a therapist, I haven’t been to one personally. I also know from personal experience, that verbal speaking has been my weak spot, while writing causes things to unjumble as the words form on the paper. What’s even better is, I sometimes am embaressed by emotions, so I prefer to keep them more private, and journals do a great job of keeping your secrets.
Unless someone is obbessed reading it, then I suggest buying a safe or burn it, because you can’t really stop them-they can be obnoxiously adament.
2. Journaling helps you plan things.
As someone who’s just plane lazy, and would happily eat food, play on my computer and watch youtube, it’s hard to get any motivation to launch myself into things. I’m able to write my aspirations and plans out on paper, and seeing them in print makes me feel even more motivated to complete the tasks.
3. You’re suppose to write thirty minutes a day.
In order to improve and maintaine your writing skill, it’s advised that you write thirty minutes, and writing about your day, plans, struggles and all that jazz certainly can’t hurt.
4. Your Emotional Control Goes Up
As I mentioned before, journaling definetely helps your emotional control go up. Letting your emotions hit the page can help.
5. Memories
In five months time, you’re going to look back on what you wrote, and your going to be inspired. Look how far you’ve grown, and look how goofy the you was five months ago. That’s what’s great about humans, they’re constantly growing and changing. However, rather than take it as a chance to poke fun at yourself, remember you were being the best you that you knew at that time, and that’s pretty great.
So I’ve seen some bullet journaling being a major thing, and I think it’s pretty cool. Is that something you do? Do you just write emotionally like I do (let’s just say my journal doesn’t look as attractive as I’ve seen some bloggers)? What’re your thoughts on journaling?
Stay Ginchy!
