Simple way to keep a Journal



Life journals can serve a variety of purposes... perhaps you want an easy way to remember what you were doing in the future, or maybe you're wanting some sort of reference so that you can more easily review the previous day's activities.

Writing in a journal is also a good way to observe repeating patterns in your life. This can help you improve as a person. Of course, there are countless other reasons that you might want a journal as well, and only you can decide the right reasons for yourself.

Keeping a journal is really not as easy as all that. It's always so easy to decide that you'll do it in a few minutes, or after the show you're watching, or just before you go to bed. Of course, before you know it, the idea has completely slipped your mind, and your journal just sits there, empty.

There are several ways to help make sure that you don't forget to write in your journal. The first is to simply make sure that you write at around the same time every day.

Most likely the best time to write in your journal is in the evening, as the day is winding down but before you're getting ready for bed. You might want to aim for around an hour before your usual bedtime, so that you'll most likely be relaxing and winding down your day, but not be so tired that you don't feel like doing anything else.

Another simple way to make sure that you record the things that happen is to record them as they happen. And regardless of how or why you keep a journal, try to remember that what you write is a reflection of who you are.
