A journal is an inward focused reflection where you can explore parts of yourself and where those parts can answer back. Journaling is an incredible way to relieve stress because it gives you and outlet for your emotions, thoughts, and anxieties, and space that allows you to express yourself honestly and completely without worry about anyone else’s judgment, nagging, or criticism.
William James, a well-known psychologist and philosopher, once said, “If you can change your mind, you can change your life.” Journaling provides a constant reminder that we are in control of our own lives. Sometimes, life happens so fast that sometimes we don’t take the time to pause and reflect.
Journaling allows us to see how we’ve changed over time. It provides us with a record of mistakes we’ve made the things we’ve learned from those mistakes. It celebrates our accomplishments and reminds us how hard we worked to achieve our goals. As long as we journal, no matter where we go in life, we know that we will grow, because we will reflect and learn and avoid past mistakes and replicate behaviors that have lead us to success.
