Have you been thinking about starting a journal or diary? For as long as there have been people, we have been recording our lives. One way to do this is through a journal. If you’ve on the fence about starting it yourself, let’s look at some of the many reasons why you should consider it.
Here are three reasons to keep a journal:
- It acts as a therapist and a best friend. You can tell your journal anything. You don’t have to worry about it judging you, or telling your secrets to anyone else. Your journal will be very therapeutic.
- It’s inexpensive and easy to do. You don’t need any special skills or items to make it work. This means it’s accessible to most anyone. You can pick it up today with just pen/pencil and paper of some type. It has very few side effects and can be taken wherever you go.
- It allows you to record your life. Whether you want to track your progress toward goals, or log your daily activities and experience, it’s all possible with your journal. Some regular journal keepers love to look back over time and see what things they lived in previous months and years.
With these three reasons in your mind, you can decide if keeping a journal is right for you. You really have nothing to lose by trying it to see if you like it.
