I have ADHD and until recently, lived my life one day at a time with no forward planning. Then, I was diagnosed about a year ago (I’m 34). Since then, journaling (Bullet Journalling, specifically) helps me get to grips with the things I keep anxiously putting off. It’s about clarity, because knowing is half the battle.
I think the greatest benefit of journaling is you come close to yourself knowing yourself much better.To know how you feel in different situations what is the real you which you never came across.The time when you overreact times when you’re low what’s you exactly
It gives you a chance to unscramble the things going on in your mind, it gives you a chance to focus, reassess, and revisit. I love the feeling after I’ve finished with a journal entry. I feel refreshed, clear headed and ready to start the day.
I like the self reflection aspect. I use Tumblr because it's easier to journal with a keyboard imo. Ot's also nice to remember the full day, and be able to refresh you mind on what your day/week has been like
- Do people tend to focus on certain things each day or just diary format with general thoughts etc?
- I always have trouble writing in journals without a structure. Any suggestions?
- How do you organize your journal while you are writing it? My pages are a jumbled mess looking like a rough draft, it can be hard to follow when looking back.
- What will make journal writing more fun???
- What to write about and how long
- How do you write in your journal? As a string of consciousness or as if you’re writing to a person?
- Do you worry about privacy with your journal, or change what you’d write based on the fear of someone reading it?
- What should we write about??
- What have you been writing about? Your daily life or your thoughts or something more abstract?
- Is writing the journal make any changes in your life?
