Writing Journal Meaning
A journal is basically a personal keepsake of your thoughts, memories, and emotions sorted and stored away so that you can clear up your mind and get your ever desirable zen mode on. All you need is a pen, book, and some time set apart for yourself. Sounds easy right? Let us make it, even more easier by helping you figure out how to start journaling.
Tips For Writing Journal
1) Know your style
Journaling doesn't have a specific format or structure that needs to be followed. All you need to do is write whatever that comes to your mind. You can keep it simple with a monochrome theme, make it artsy with loads of colors and glitters and you can also choose a book of your style to journal in.
What Is Writing Journal
2) Be yourself
A journal is your personal space where you can be yourself. Be true to your thoughts while you write them down. Each and every thought running in your mind, the emotions you are feeling, and the memories you recollect, imprint them into your journal. This will help you understand yourself better and will ease up your mind. Your surroundings make a big difference. Try to find a place that is calming and comfortable for you while you are journaling. You can turn on some music, switch on some fairy lights, and make yourself a steaming cup of green tea. You can even try lighting up a scented candle. I won't bore you with the medical talk but according to studies, the sense of smell basically has a direct VIP route to the centers in your brain that control your emotions and memories. The fragrance from the scented candle can help you relax and sort all your thoughts while you write them down in your journal.

It might be a little hard to write regularly until you get used to it. Do not give up. You might be discouraged if it doesn't help at the start but remember, all good things take time. Keep writing and, you will surely see a difference. Make a schedule and set apart a little time every day for writing.You can make it interesting by decorating your journals with stickers, washi tapes, cute polaroids,photographs, or some photo cards.
You can also use a journal with a design of your favourite character from your favourite show like FRIENDS, Peeky Blinders, or an anime like Naruto.
