I’ll admit it: I never understood the hype around journaling. Writing is my passion and my day job — yet writing my thoughts (by hand!) in a notebook never sounded appealing to me. What do I write? Where do I begin? Do I make a bulleted list? Do I write it like a diary entry?
My therapist suggested I try journaling, so I decided to designate my mornings to it. Lately, I’ve been writing down whatever is on my mind that morning. Maybe I had a weird dream or I went to bed thinking about something or someone. Whatever it is, scribbling down my thoughts has really helped clear my head and get out whatever I don’t want to start my day with. Yes, I get the hype now!
