Today’s tip: maintain a journal.
The benefits of regular journaling are well documented. Journaling improves retention of information, helps you process events, and work through complex ideas. Many famous writers used journaling to aid creativity and develop their work prior to publication.
I was a passionate journal-er in the past, and still have my very first journal—penned at aged 7. Unfortunately, my habit has dwindled in the past few years; but it is something I am keen to start again.
I’ve decided to set myself a very menial goal of writing at least one sentence each day. Such a small target leaves me no excuses! Your journaling goals might be more involved and comprehensive, but I need to start small.
Will you join me?
I’m keen to hear which techniques you enjoy using and what has worked to help you use a journal.
