5 Benefits of Journaling

 

 Journaling is a way to release emotions and to reset your mind. If you are having a bad day you can write down your feelings and what wrongs you feel were done to you and then you can rip up the piece of paper and that symbolizes a releasing of negative thoughts or energy. You can also journal when you are having a great day and reflect on why you had a great day and what were the good things/habits that helped to create such a great day. Many people do not see the value and the benefits of journaling and this post is to help make it more clear…



  1. A great benefit of journaling is that it helps you to reflect on your day. Whether it was good or bad. You can think back and examine what habits you did that resulted in a positive or negative outcome depending on which one it is, you may want to keep or change the habit. For example, you may have noticed that by substituting tea for coffee gave you just enough caffeine boost without all the jitters and that may be a habit you want to continue.
  2. Journaling can be a way to keep track of your moods. Some people value bullet journaling because they can jot down what mood they are feeling today versus yesterday. You can write it down daily and review every week/month to see how your moods are progressing. 
  3. Journaling is a great coping method. As mentioned earlier it helps with keeping track of your moods, you can also use it to deal with any stresses life may put on you.
  4. Another benefit of journaling is that it helps you write down and keep track of your goals. It helps you set a plan for your visions and a road map for your dreams. 
  5. Journaling can also be used to help you discover yourself and find what you like and don’t like. It can help you find your happiness and joy. With Deserved Happiness’s journals, it has questions and objectives to get you thinking and reflecting on your path to finding your happiness.

Personally, I like to use journaling to help me find myself and set my goals. It really helps me map out my month by setting daily and weekly goals to achieve the overall big goal. I like and stand by the Deserved Happiness journals because it allows one to go on a path of self-discovery to ultimately find your happiness.

...I have learned is that worrying can be one-sided often and we worry about the negatives of a potential situation or decision but we never think about the positives. The opposite of that what-if situation. What if I try something new and I am successful at it? What if I try this and I love it? What if I start this project and it is my new passion and leads to many more open doors?
