Journaling – What You Get From It

If you are like a lot of people I talk to, you have an interest in starting to journal and you don’t know where to start.

Is that you?

Journaling can take on many different methods, strategies, and tactics. The most effective ones are starting and doing it. Not what most people want to hear though. When I teach people how to journal effectively, I tell them to think BIG and act SMALL.

You’ve probably heard that before, a lot of folks have talked about it or written about it.

When I say think BIG and act SMALL, that is the big goal is to journal. The act SMALL is to start by just journaling for a couple minutes a day. Start with gratitude. Start with writing your goals and one thing you can do that day to move towards them. Don’t over think it, just do it. Eventually you will build the habit muscle to do it daily and then you can start to expand on the volume of what you journal about.

Some of the biggest things you can get from journaling:

  1. Mental Clarity –
  2. Reduced Stress & anxiety
  3. Less Chaos
  4. No More – I am just so busy.
  5. You can heal your mind and body.
  6. You get clarity around what is true for you that is not true for everyone else.
  7. You understand why you are the way you are and can see that more frequently.
  8. You can appreciate other peoples perspectives better.
  9. You become a better listener.
  10. You are much happier and live with joy and grace.

Who wouldn’t want all that?

I have personally benefited from journaling, physically in healing my body. Mentally in living a healthier lifestyle and having better relationships. Spiritually in living in peace and joy, enjoying slowing my mind down to focus on what is important.

You can too!

To yours in abundance,
