The why. In a world that constantly demands our focus, journaling is an opportunity to slow down and give yourself some much-deserved attention. Writing can be a thinking process of its own where you begin to understand your own beliefs and how they shape your reality. Insights from journaling can be valuable now and in years to come as you begin to understand who you were, who you are now and the possibilities of who you could become.
There are so many more benefits to journaling, here are just a few if you need more convincing . . .
- Writing can provide a way to understand yourself, your beliefs, thoughts, feelings and actions and how they shape your life.
- By understanding yourself and your identity you are able to manage adversity and increase your resilience to change. Developing your inner resources and self-confidence.
