Working on my journaling habit

I haven’t been writing in my diary journal as much as I want to lately. So far in October, I only wrote about five entries while I wrote almost every second day in the last couple of months.

I think the main reason why I did not journal as much as I used to was the lack of time and the lack of ideas I had. I don’t know I just rather spent time with some important people in my life than sit down to write and I also kind of got tired of writing about the same things over and over.

Today, I decided to change this. I wrote down a list of things I can journal about and I set myself a list of things I want to change to achieve my goal of writing more often.

Things to write about:

  • my day
  • my thoughts
  • my weird dreams
  • people in my life
  • what is happening in the world at the moment
  • things I am dealing with
  • writing prompts
  • ideas I had during the day
  • Random lists

Things to change:

  • set aside more time to journal
  • take your journal with you wherever you go
  • don’t worry about how much you write at once
  • don’t worry about how the pages look
  • journal at least every third or second day
  • journal throughout the day. You don’t have to write a whole entry at once
  • REMEMBER YOU ARE JOURNALING FOR YOURSELF
  • keep it simple

But why am I telling you this? I want you to be part of my journaling journey and it also is some extra motivation to work on my journaling habit if I shared it with you guys.

Do you journal? How often do you journal? Do you have any tips?

Lots of Love
