Resources to Start Journaling

journal-resources

As I read about journaling to prepare for this month’s habit experiment I found a ton of great articles and other content that covered everything from how to journal to the benefits of writing in a journal. I wanted to share some of these resources with you to help get you started or keep you going.

Writing in my journal has been a great exercise so far this month. I have slowed down my thoughts because I’m writing by hand and I have reflected on how my day went and what really happened. I’ve noticed that as I write in my journal I’m more aware of each distinct day instead of letting them all blur together as I often do. This has been very therapeutic and calming.

For now, I use my journal as a way to record my day, including the events, successes, frustrations, thoughts and ideas that happened throughout the day. I write just before I go to bed. I have a few ideas in mind for expanding my journal entries, but for now I’m working on getting the habit started.

No matter where you are in your journal writing, I think these resources will help you to get started or give you a new way of approaching your writing habit. If you have any articles, studies or anything else, please add them in the comments or email them to nathan@quiethabits.net and I’ll add them in this post.

Well, there you have it! I hope you found something useful in all of that. Happy journaling!
