Activity: Starting a Daily Journal

Of all of the things that start with J on our list, journals are one of the most special; they’re a great way to preserve memories and track your personal growth.

However, it can be challenging to keep a journal. Our lives are busy, and many people have attempted to start a journal, only to abandon it after a week!

Whether that describes you exactly or you’ve never tried journaling before, we have some tips for starting (and maintaining) a daily journal below.

  • Choose paper or digital. Beautiful leather-bound notebooks are what we traditionally think of when we think of journals. However, if you don’t want the clutter of keeping several physical diaries for years or just prefer to type rather than hand-write, consider a digital journal. (Just be sure to back it up — technology can be less reliable than paper at saving your work!)
  • Set a theme for your journal. Do you want to recount the details of the day, or make more introspective observations, like what you’re thankful for? Decide what you want to write about each day before you start so you’ll never feel stuck.
  • Pick a time and set a timer. Perhaps you want to start your day by journaling about the previous day or end your day with a few minutes of journaling before bed. Decide when you want to write and how long you want to spend on journaling, so it becomes a part of your routine.
  • Mark your entries with date and place. You’ll appreciate this when you look back on your journal entries later. You can read them in chronological order and have a more vivid recollection of what your life was like at that moment — whether you were at your first apartment, a campground in a different state, on a plane for a work trip, or elsewhere!
