The Benefits of Keeping a Daily Journal

Once you have made the decision to start a daily journal, it’s only a matter of getting started. Some people start with a simple journal they keep in their purse, but it is not necessary that you be that organised. You might be surprised how quickly you get caught up and forget about the important things, but in time, you’ll get around to remembering all the details.

Write Those Memories

Keeping a regular journal can be particularly helpful if you are struggling with keeping your daily activities in writing. It can help you to remember the small details of your day and to review them at a later time.

As we all have a difficult time keeping up with our daily routine, journaling is especially helpful. In time, you may find yourself rehashing a day’s events in your journal and for a while, it seems like nothing has changed. However, if you write about what really happened and your memories of it, it is easier to maintain this vision of what really happened to make it happen.

If you were down at the races on a particular day, you might have been too preoccupied to have thought up an exercise plan to get through the day. Or you might have been too tense from the day before and ended up doing nothing. Keeping track of what you did do, what you did eat and the effects it had on you can help you keep on top of things better. You can go back and review this information and figure out what worked and what didn’t.

Understand Yourself


Another benefit of keeping a daily journal is being able to refer back to it when needed. If you find yourself in a situation where you are sick and unable to work, a journal can help you remember what you did during the day and where you had a hard time. If you had a hard time going to the bathroom, you can use the journal to remind yourself what you did to fix the problem. In the end, a daily journal can help you not miss work or feel rushed in a meeting.

One perfect system is to put aside one day each week to record everything that happens in your life. This week, take out a piece of paper and jot down a list of all the interesting things that happened. When you come back next week, you will have a better idea of what to do, or you might find yourself having a blast because you know what you did that day.

Another benefit of keeping a daily journal is to really understand yourself. This is often overlooked, but it is well worth remembering to ponder the day’s events as you write them down. You might discover some areas in your life that need extra work, but you may also see areas that have potential. By keeping a journal, you can turn these areas into goals for your life.

Turn Your Weaknesses into StrengthsĀ 

Perhaps you will find yourself having to face a variety of life challenges that you did not have to back when you felt that you could handle large amounts of work without a problem. Now that you have dealt with them, you will realize that you could have dealt with them a little bit earlier. Keeping a daily journal can also help you to turn weaknesses into strengths and back into weaknesses.
