Journaling can be a therapeutic, relaxing experience allowing us to de-stress from the clutters of the mind. It can be difficult to find the time, but here are some tips on making it work in your schedule:
1. Before the house becomes fully alive, try waking up 20-30 minutes earlier in the morning.
2. Use the quiet time once everyone is out of the house. Or you might try going somewhere else where there is quiet space.
3. Find a neighborhood coffee or juice shop and stop there for 15 minutes during a morning stroll or on your way to work. This will help you take in the surroundings, and inspire you to write.
Spending time journaling can buy you more time through the day even though you spend time doing the writing.
Your head will be clearer from the chatter that goes on in your brain and you’ll be able to handle people more efficiently and effectively. Journaling every day is most beneficial, but even just as often as you can has its benefits; better some than none.
Other ways or techniques to journal include poetry, blogging, letter writing or morning pages when you just start writing. The idea is to allow what’s inside to be documented on paper for better understanding and perspective. Expressing ourselves is important and this is a powerful tool to ‘let it all out.’
Here’s another example of what can become a daily ritual or create your own version of this for healthy happy living:
