Journaling

  1. 1. THE BASICS
  2. 2. <ul><li>Everyone can benefit from the process of writing down the events of one’s day, the emotional responses to those events, and the hopes and dreams that stem from either. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>There are many benefits to keeping a journal: </li></ul><ul><li>The process of writing something down forces you to think it through until you understand it. </li></ul><ul><li>Storing pieces of knowledge or experience gives you a record of your life. </li></ul><ul><li>Writing regularly will make you a better writer. </li></ul><ul><li>It is not easy to remember the events of our lives. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Something to write on </li></ul><ul><li>Something to write with </li></ul><ul><li>Something to write </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Journaling can be done at anytime and for any reason. </li></ul><ul><li>Some people will set aside a specific time each day to do their writing, whether that is at night or in the morning or some other time of the day </li></ul><ul><li>What matters most is to be consistent in journaling </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>It doesn’t really matter where a person journal’s, but what is important is that the person feels comfortable, safe, and secure. </li></ul><ul><li>If a person does not feel any of these three things, then they will be reluctant to use journaling for its fullest purpose: self-refection. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Review your day in writing. Record not just the events of your day, but how you felt about those events. </li></ul><ul><li>Write about something you are reading. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What are you reading in the Bible? in a devotional book? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are you learning from the book you are reading? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Are you reading a blog that makes you think? </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Write the first thing that comes to mind and explore it. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What is really bugging me right now? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What is the worst thing that ever happened to me? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When was I the happiest? the saddest? the most content? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How am I feeling this very moment? </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Journaling, like freewriting, helps us to grow as writers. Our goal here is not just learn how to write and understand the English language, but to use it to express our inmost desires, fears, and dreams. </li></ul>Ideas gleaned from http://tamerasvanes.com/?page_id=22
