How much do I want to read more? 6/10

This is a lovely short book that emphasizes the benefits of writing your own journal, and it gives a multitude of topics ideas you can write and reflect about.
I bet you will know yourself much better if you do all those "writing exercises".


Chapter 1- The Art of Journaling

Journaling is basically the act of recording your thoughts and feelings by jotting them down on a daily basis. This art has been around for hundreds of years now, and has been used by most people as a means to relieve stress and express themselves.

One of the most popular journals is that one by Samuel Pepys.
And then there’s also Anne Frank’s Diary. Her diary is now one of the most famous diaries ever created—and has inspired legions of people everywhere.

Journaling is also an act of self-exploration. When you get your thoughts down and when you get to express yourself, you realize that there are still a lot of things that you don’t actually know about yourself—and that there’s also a lot more that you can learn about life on earth.

Chapter 2- Elements Of A Good Journal

  1. The Purpose. First and foremost, you have to ask yourself as to why exactly you are writing the journal, or the certain topic that you’re trying to write about. What is it about? What is it for? Who is it for? These questions will help set the tone of your journal entry—as well as the whole journal itself. For every entry, there should be a different topic so that you won’t just talk about the same thing over and over and over again. This way, each of your entries will really have some purpose and won’t just be a reflection of the other.

  2. The Beginning. The first lines that you write should be compelling. Sure, no one might be reading that journal now, but you also have to think of the fact that if people get to read them, how do you think they’d feel? It’s important that you get their attention right away so they would keep on reading. Also, the first lines are important because again, they will set the tone of the entry, and they would—and should—make people curious.

  3. The Conclusion. Every piece should end in such a way that your readers would either be left hanging, want to read more, or simply just feel a surge of emotions because they understood what you were trying to say. If you started your piece strongly, you should end it strongly, as well.

Different kinds of journals:

  1. Creative Writing. A Creative Writing Journal is where you get to write your own short stories, poems, essays, ideas for novels, or responds to prompts. It’s a good way to stimulate the mind and let your thoughts flow out in such a way that it would create something special. The idea is when a spark of thought gets inside your brain, you have to get down and start writing. You have to cultivate the idea so it could be something more.

  2. Personal Journal. As the name suggests, this is the kind of journal where you’d write your personal thoughts and feelings. It’s pretty much the free-flowing kind where there are no restrictions and where you really should not censor yourself. You can write about what happened today, the emotions that you feel, or about certain people, too. It’s definitely your own personal diary!

  3. Gratitude Journal. A Gratitude Journal is where you’re going to write about the things that you are thankful for. You see, when you actually write about even the smallest things that made you happy, you’ll realize that life is actually good and that you have so much to be thankful for. It’s best to write even just about one thing daily so by the end of the year, you can look back and see how great the past year has been.

  4. Travel Journal. Of course, a travel journal is a journal where you’re going to document accounts of your travels. It’s also a good way to look back on where you’ve been—literally and figuratively, so it’s meant to keep you inspired!

Chapter 3- Benefits of Journaling

  1. It clears your mind. There are times when you feel like there are just too many things in your brain and you somehow feel like screaming. Well, why not write your thoughts down, instead? The thing about journaling is that it allows you to free some space in your brain. Once you put down those thoughts on paper, you’ll certainly feel a whole lot better—and you can now say goodbye to stress!

  2. It helps you understand yourself better. Sometimes, you’re just so busy with life that you forget to spend time with and understand the person whom you should know best—yourself! When you start journaling, you’d be able to understand yourself again. You’d be able to remember what your goals are; you’d be able to have this clearer version of the future—or what you want the future to be. This way, you can write about your plans and be more motivated to push through with them and make them come true because surely, you would not want to disappoint yourself.

  3. It helps you remember what you’ve gone through. When you read old journal entries again, you’ll remember about who you were months or years ago and you’ll see how far you’ve come—and how far you still have to go. In a way, it will help you realizes that change is constant. It’ll help you realize that you have changed and you’ve grown, and that’ll make you feel that you’re “real” and that you’re really living a life.

  4. You get to remind yourself about the good things in life. Sometimes, we all need a reminder that things are going to be okay, and that even if you’re going through hard things right now, you’ll manage. You can go on. When you look back on the positive things, they’ll keep you stronger and they’ll help you understand that everything will soon be okay—you’ll soon be okay.

  5. And, you get to improve your writing skills. Your writing may suck at first. You might feel like it’s the kind of writing that’s for your eyes only”, but sooner or later, you’ll see how much your writing skills have improved. If you write every day, you also get to practice every day and that way, you’ll be more confident not just about your writing skills, but about yourself, in general, as well.
