Journaling can be done for personal or professional reasons. What's important is to choose your own reason and own it. Because if you don't own it, it'll be just another item on your to do list, making you feel pressured and uncomfortable.
You gotta love journaling. The activity of it needs to be pure pleasure for you.And also connecting with the activity of journaling needs to help you live a better and fuller life.
And here are three reasons why you need journaling:
When you write things down with a pen in your hand, different parts of your brain are activated, boosting your creativity and helping you gain clarity.
When you write things down, item by item, you organize the information better and visualize your decisions better as you can see it all in front of you.
Also, another perspective about gaining clarity by journaling is that you can stay away from all the O.P.O.'s (Other People's Opinions) and find out what's truly yours. Especially when there is so much noise, too many opinions around you, you might easily feel lost and confused. Longing for clarity. For example, the number one outcome most of my clients want to get out of their coaching session is clarity.
When you are about to make a decision, making it on paper will absolutely benefit you and give you courage. How? Write everything down as if you are creating a professional business plan about your decision. Think of every angle you can imagine, pros, cons, strengths, weaknesses, threats, opportunities, possibilities, etc. You'll feel well prepared, confident and ready to take action. Which will activate courage within you.
3. PEACE & HAPPINESS:
The time you spend with yourself is precious. And you might as well turn this journaling activity into your everyday activity to cherish yourself and experience peace and happiness on a regular basis. The researches have already proven that journaling, just like meditation promotes inner peace and happiness.
