Ready, Set, Reflect: 3 Reasons You Should Take Your Journal Everywhere
Many times, we have one friend who is the queen of journaling - she was the first one to jump on bullet journals, she tracks her habits daily, and her penmanship deserves to be made in a font. On the other hand, there is also that one friend who is decidedly against keeping a journal; she is usually the one caught saying, “Keeping a journal is just more work than it’s worth.” Whichever of these you are, hopefully we can help remind you why it is important to always keep a journal handy.
Get more organized: Journaling is a great way to keep track of your life. Ladies who plan, journals are a wonderful way to stick to your ways while allowing you to be a little more flexible and creative. This is also fantastic if you want to become a more organized person, but you’re not sure where to start.
Keep track of decisions: Sometimes, the best strategy for decision making is writing it out, and a journal is the perfect place to do it. Whether you need to write down how much it will cost to get a dog, or you want a pro-con list for a job change, journaling can be your new go-to.
Look back: A journal is a great place to document your life, so when you are writing your memoirs you know exactly how you became the world’s #1 fashion designer or a Fortune 500 CEO. With a journal, you have a safe spot to keep track of your personal and professional ups and downs so you know where you’ve come from.
We hope these ideas have inspired you to start working on your journaling skills. Now grab a Moleskine and get going!
