It helps me see where I come from and where I am today, it's good for self awareness, celebrating you, and sometimes it's just funny. I don't have a schedule to check on it, I just read it whenever I feel like it. Being careful not to fall into a pit of past memories.
When I completed writing in journal I just do check up of the past day to see the problem I have and what I solved from it
I reread as soon as I’ve completed writing it to recognize & reflect upon the feelings I’ve recorded, and to reestablish the intentions I’ve set for the day.
