Yes, I find it so much better when doing things like morning pages or journaling. I also find it good for my to do list and notes because it right there and I remember it better.
The physical act of writing versus typing is great for those who appreciate the tangible quality of putting pen to paper. The feel of the pen gliding over a page is akin to ice skates on the rink. The dance of your pen can be just as satisfying as the marks it leaves behind.
I do! I think it brings everything in our minds down to something tangible in paper. I’m always surprised how just by writing things down, you remember them better and you have a chance to reflect on it more! So yes I’m a big fan of pen and paper!

- I’m stacking multiple journals at the moment – activity’s- 💤 sleep- diet- exercise- not sure 🤔 if that’s over doing it but it seem the phone 📱 does a lot of the “heavy lifting” recording everything?? then I just comb over the top of everything at the end of the day…not sure my strategy is functional??
- Do you write anything about your food habits?
- I typically use my journal inner reflection and CBT, but I don’t always have something related to either to write about every day. What else could I write about to make journaling a daily habit?
- Do you find that going over past journal entries is helpful for you? Or is more of a ‘write it down once and never look back’ kind of process worth exploring?
