I have been writing something about myself or my everyday for almost 5 years now. It has been one of the greatest and most freeing experiences in my life because I can actually slow myself down to think about what’s truly happening around me as well as my part in it.
Most people treat journaling as something they “know they should do” but rarely ever take up the practice. And if they do, they fall off the wagon within a few months.
It doesn’t have to be this way, especially when you learn about the amazing benefits of journaling. Here are 6 ways that journaling will change your life:
Journaling (or keeping letters or diaries) is an ancient tradition, one that dates back to at least 10th century Japan. Successful people throughout history have kept journals.

One should always have something sensational to read on the train.”

You can use a journal prompt when you are feeling uninspired and stuck for ideas.
Instead of focusing on the problem of not having an idea (which often makes the block even worse), a journal prompt is a simple statement… often only one sentence which can spark ideas, give you a new way to think and offer inspiration.
