Surprising benefits of journaling

Surprising benefits of journaling

I think there's a lot of mixed emotions about journaling and most people will think of young girls jotting "dear diary" in My Little Pony notebooks. There's actually a lot more to journaling than pink covers, girly infatuation with impossible love stories and gossip. And it's certainly not just for teenage girls!

In fact, journaling has been proven to strengthen immune cells, reduce stress and help you resolve problems more easily. It's even been said to decrease symptoms of asthma and rheumatoid arthritis, which is pretty crazy.

According to Maude Purcell, "scientific evidence supports that journaling provides other unexpected benefits. The act of writing accesses your left brain, which is analytical and rational. While your left brain is occupied, your right brain is free to create, intuit and feel. In sum, writing removes mental blocks and allows you to use all of your brainpower to better understand yourself, others and the world around you".

There are so many ways to keep a journal, and if the dear diary format works for you, then go with it! But of course, you don't have to stick to a set format - find what works for you! If you need some help getting started, you can write one sentence a day, outline what you're grateful for or look into bullet journaling.

Personally, I have a morning and an evening routine, which I can share with you at a later point, but in the morning I write down what I am grateful for, and in the evening I like to write down what I have done in the day. This way, I feel positive and grateful for the day ahead and accomplished and satisfied in the evening. It's had such a great impact on my mindset and for such little effort! 

Do you keep a journal, and if so, which format works for you?

Catch you later,

Charline
