Journaling for Self-Discovery


If you're like me, you might find that you have a lot of thoughts running through your head at any given moment. And sometimes, those thoughts can be a bit of a jumble! If you're feeling like you could use a little organization and clarity in your life, journaling might be for you.

Different from simply writing in a diary, journaling for self-discovery can be a way to reflect on where you are in your life, where you want to be, and the points where you feel stuck. It can also help you to get a different perspective on things, and to bring in more of your senses to the experience (which can be helpful in grounding yourself).

Not only that, but journaling is also good for your mental health, mood, immune system, and stress levels (studies have shown this to be true!). So if you're looking for a way to improve your overall well-being, journaling might be a great option for you.

All you need to get started is a journal or notebook (fancy or not), a pen, and 15 to 30 minutes of free time. You'll also want to find a quiet place to journal. If you're not sure what to write about, here are some prompts to get you started:

-Write a letter to your younger self

-How is your life now different than it was five years ago?

-Describe your ideal day

-List some things that put you in a good mood

-What's a compliment that you struggle to accept? Why?

One thing to keep in mind is that, while you can certainly journal on a computer, many people find that writing by hand is more effective. So don't let the fear of doing it "wrong" hold you back!
