Journaling is a practical and accessible way to stay connected to your inner self, your body, your dreams and your purpose in life. Journaling can help you clarify your thinking, prioritize, be thankful and accomplish your most important tasks while simultaneously serving to inspire, motivate, and center you.
The art of recording your thoughts, wishes and musings with pen and paper have a great physical and mental impact. It allows you to collect otherwise lost insights and gratitude, gives you the ability to analyze the progress you have made and enables you to easily assess where you are, where you are going and where you have been.
Judy Willis MD, a neurologist, and former classroom teacher explains, “The practice of writing can enhance the brain’s intake, processing, retaining, and retrieving of information… it promotes the brain’s attentive focus … boosts long-term memory, illuminates patterns, gives the brain time for reflection, and when well-guided, is a source of conceptual development and stimulus of the brain’s highest cognition.”
Here’s just a few of the benefits that you can expect to see from a regular journaling practice: Better Organization, Improved Judgment and Decision Making, Refined Demeanor, Enhanced Intention, Positive Reinforcement.
Ambitious, successful, happy, and creative people are always working towards many goals. Journals are ideal tools to optimize the process of defining, tracking, manifesting and accelerating achievement of these goals. Journaling will empower you to maintain a record of the progress you’ve made towards your goals and their associated actions while keeping you motivated and inspired as you progress on your journey towards reaching them.
New to journaling and not sure how to start? Be honest and authentic (write like no one else is going to read it). Forget about grammar and spelling when you write. Writing by hand in a physical journal such as the Legendary Life Journals (as opposed to journaling on a phone, tablet or laptop) promotes better memory recall. Adopt cursive writing to get your thoughts out faster.
Don’t overthink your writing. Just start writing whatever is on your mind. The point is to write about your thoughts — not publish a polished article.
