Why Keeping a Daily Journal Could Change Your Life

Keeping a journal every day can be a “keystone habit” that impacts many other elements of your life. Journaling has great value as a way to continuously reassess your past and present actions against your future goals and aspirations, giving you better insight into how each day contributes to or detracts from your larger goals for your life. Journaling can also help you to explore and clarify your emotions, thoughts and what you have learned, and can be a morale- and motivation-boosting tool that shows you how far you’ve come. Journaling is a fantastically useful habit, and it’s never too late to start.

Reflect on these key points:

  • 1One way that journaling can prove transformational is in becoming a keystone habit that can lead to other habits, thereby allowing you to end procrastination.
  • 2Journaling harnesses creativity by putting the focus on output, rather than on input.
  • 3It becomes easier to manifest your goals when you use your journal to review your big picture agenda regularly.

“Conversely, Gandhi has said, “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.””
