I feel like my brain is freed of the burden of those thoughts. I had a place to put them neatly so I wont forget and after ward I dont dont have to think about it again, sinds it has been written and thought about already.
Journaling helps me start and end the day. It’s a great way to organize my thoughts and encourages me to take time for myself. It is one of the best forms of emotional release.
Relieved. journaling all the problems, emotions, worries and thoughts can be quite therapeutic. Like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.
Sometimes good, sometimes angry. Most of the time I’m glad to get the thoughts out of my head and on paper. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have much to say. I think that engaging in writing as a ritual, as a pattern, a habit helps me collect myself and organize what is going on with me no matter what ends up on the page.

I usually feel more clear in problems that I am facing. If I pose a problem while journaling, I make it a point to think through a solution instead of just venting or just going through what happened lately.
- How to get yourself to write in your journal on days when you are really in a rut and can’t even get out of bed to write?
- Do you always journal in the same place? Or do you carry it with you?
- What do you tend to write about in your journal, to motivate yourself for tricky times?
- What do you write day to day?
- How to make it a routine task?
- How has this habit helped you?
- 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?
