Tips to successfully incorporate journaling into your life:
- Find a time that works best with your schedule and make a commitment to dedicate at least five minutes each day to personal reflection
- Don’t self-censor or over think – your journal is a safe place to own all the feelings that you’re having
- Use your journal as a metaphor for life – each day is a blank page waiting to be filled with new experiences
- Review your writing once in awhile to take stock of your achievements and count your blessings, but also to identify and move to change any negative or destructive behaviors that might be sabotaging your success
When I sit down to write these posts I often look back in my journal and find experiences that I’ve had that I know many of you can relate to. My goal in doing so it to let you know that you are never alone. Take comfort in the Word of God. His teachings will help you strengthen your soul and spirit.
Have you successfully used journaling as a tool for healing and self-awareness? As always, I’d love to read your comments.
