The Art and Power of Journal Writing

Three Reasons Why Journaling Can Boost Your Day. Create a journaling routine right away.

Writing in a sweet, heart-shaped lock diary is not the only purpose of journaling. It’s a psychological strategy that alters your perspective, promotes self-assurance, increases productivity, strengthens connections, and develops emotional maturity. It seems like a con, I know, too good to be true. But this is where it becomes complicated since it isn’t. Your internal debate will recur while you’re journaling. Every day will be like that if you are consumed with self-doubt, self-loathing, low self-esteem, and awareness of how far behind you are. Forever. Your everyday routine will be improved in this area if you keep a journal.

  1. Writing in a journal helps you frame your day. I prefer to journal in the morning, but I know a lot of folks who do it at night. A wonderful way to frame the day is to start (or end) it by stating your aspirations, daily goals, accomplishments, etc. Life is so demanding of our time and attention, and the world is so busy. Finding a quiet moment to think is difficult. That space is created by include journaling in the day. But I have no idea what to write! I’ve heard that one before, if it’s you. The catch is… There are no standards for journaling, and the only persons whose notebooks are published are the incredibly successful deceased. So simply type whatever comes to mind. (at first).
  2. Journaling challenges the mood. Wake up on the wrong side of the bed is an adage that is quite old. Emotions are such that we all occasionally do. Our moods are influenced by a variety of factors, including hormones, stress, and sleep deprivation. Women experience emotional fluctuations more frequently because their hormones don’t follow the same 24-hour resetting cycle as men’s do. Emotions matter, despite what a lot of new-age self-help literature will have you believe. Our emotions have an impact on our motivations, routines, and behaviours. A journaling routine offers a place to explore these feelings, feel better, and distance oneself from the power that emotions may have. Writing about your feelings and experiences can help you control your emotions, according to research. I discovered this to be true, and I frequently remark that writing in general saved my life (because it did). No matter if you journal in the morning or at night, doing so will make your day better. Have faith in me.
  3. Journaling develops a fresh set of guiding principles. I never thought I’d become a writer. Because I was raised in an environment where writing was not valued at all, I believed that pursuing a career in writing was a huge waste of time. This fundamental conviction influenced all of my choices, including my undergraduate major, the jobs I sought for, and how I spent my time. (not honing my writing skills). Before I questioned this fundamental assumption, a whole decade had passed. The worst part is that it wasn’t my principles that permeated my philosophy; rather, it was other people’s viewpoints. This is one of your fundamental ideas as well. The inner truths you hold today were (probably) planted by someone else. Setting up a journaling routine provides a blank canvas on which to establish your essential values. What you record in your journal each day will shape your beliefs. (Obviously, with a bunch of other stuff taken into consideration, too, like what you’re consuming online and how you spend your time).

How to Establish a Journaling Habit That Suits

  • You Purchase a journal and
  • Fill it up.

Although it is a little more complicated than that, it is still really straightforward. In the event that you’re wondering how you’ll fit in journaling on top of everything else…While drinking coffee in the morning, getting ready for bed at night, or standing in line to pick up your children from school, you can journal. It is irrelevant when or for how long you journal. More significant than duration or time is the strategy you employ. I use the Pomodoro Technique to set a focus timer for 25 minutes in the morning. It is my personal solution. However, I’ve also journaled in the late afternoon, just before bed, and at night. I occasionally use a prompt, but I’m more of a girlie stream-of-conscious journaling type.

I picked a few mantras that go along with what I want to work on this year as I was developing my practise over the past four months. One of them has made this year her year to conquer fear. The other is gaining confidence in my abilities and intuition. This is reflected in what I write every day. Oh, and by the way, this writing practise has also benefited greatly by learning to care less about what others think.

Hello Everyone, finally published my new book “Focus”. In this book, I took a poetic licence in considering the spiritual aspect of focus, which has rarely been done. Other books focus on the practical aspect and tell you to do this and that, but in my book, I discuss how we can find focus within ourselves without relying on an action-oriented approach.

      That’s intriguing since people like to keep their journals private. They are an amazing self awareness exercise. In my journalling practice, I dump everything and anything that comes to mind in a stream of consciousness manner. I look at why, for instance, my true self didn’t show up in a particular situation. This process has a cathartic effect on me, and I find that I manage to tackle issues that have become urgent in my subconscious mind and are bubbling to the surface.

        I have done that in the past. What I’m focusing on in this adventure is all the elements that make up my writing life. I include the music I’m listening to, the book I’m reading, and the dreams from the night before.

    I think you are in for a disappointment if you set a goal to conquer (defeat?) fear. From my perspective, at best, it can be revealed and known as it really is; a false identity, as in “I Am afraid”. You have named yourself and therefore act according to your identity. Fear remains, yet you are not afraid.

    I’ve been so focused on poetry and blogging I need to get back to journaling. Not everything is meant for everyone to see.
