Benefits of JournalingBy Work. Train. Compete!|Sara & Natalie|2012-07-19 | Comments: 0I’ve recently started journaling. It’s a very simple tool and I’m amazed at how powerful it has been in my life. I journaled as a child because my mom had forced me to and now I journal as an adult because it has proven to be a healthy outlet for me.
Here are some benefits through journaling:
- Self-Reflection: Journaling gives you clarity on things that are bothering you in your life. By writing it down on paper you gain clarity on the issue because you are forced to look from an objective point of view. Often times our disorganized thoughts disallow us to come up with reasonable solutions. I always gain clarity and feel better when I write down my problems. The answers seems to magically appear. This is also why I love writing for Oxygen because it allows me an opportunity to journal and share my thoughts, useful information, and personal growth with my readers.
- Goals: I enjoy writing down my personal and professional goals.
- Review goals: I’m able to review my goals daily.
- It holds you Responsible: By looking at your goals daily and writing down commitments to yourself you hold yourself responsible. You then begin to lead your own life.
- End up Writing a Book about Yourself.
- Place to Plan: Prioritize personal and professional goals.
- Write down ideas.
- Exercise writing skills: Just like working out, writing skills need to be trained and worked on to grow.
