Small Habits - big Impact: How Journaling can Transform your Life

Updated: Jun 17, 2023

"Journaling is like whispering to one's self and listening at the same time." - Mina Murray


Did you know that journaling about your thoughts and feelings can reduce stress, anxiety, and promote overall well-being? It's a powerful tool that can assist you in achieving your goals and building self-confidence. Journaling provides a wonderful opportunity to deepen your understanding of your inner landscape, identify thought patterns, and observe the state of your bodymind. You can engage in free-flowing journaling or utilize prompts and questions to guide your reflection.

I've used journaling in various times of my life and have benefited greatly. But there have been times when I effortlessly wrote several pages each day, and other times when I completely neglected the practice. This inconsistency often led to a backlog of thoughts and experiences, causing me to feel overwhelmed and eventually give up on writing altogether. That's precisely why I started using the 5-Minute Journal last year. I made a commitment to use it every day, thinking that five minutes couldn't be too difficult to spare, right?! However, I soon realized that even with the best intentions, there were days when I missed writing in it. But instead of being hard on myself, I chose to be kind and forgiving. I acknowledged that the consistent use of the journal had already begun to transform my thinking and my mindset, even if it wasn't perfect.

Overall, I've noticed a significant difference in my thoughts and mood when I consistently used the journal in the mornings. I felt more positive, balanced, and, especially, the daily affirmations I created became an essential part of my morning routine. It's also fascinating to have an easy and structured way to revisit my thoughts and feelings from the past months.
