Journaling is a great way to express yourself and document your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. There are many different types of journals that can be used for different purposes. Whether you are looking to track your personal growth, document your travels, or simply express yourself creatively, there is a journal for you. One of the most popular journaling methods is the bullet journal.
Thanks to social networks, this type of journal has skyrocketed into one of the main creative media outlets shared on Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr. You've probably seen one of these images at some point. They are usually on a dotted or blank page and look like a planner with cute doodles. A bullet journal serves as a self-made planner, but you can add much more if you want.
Others like to use stickers or found objects, such as magazine clippings, to add a touch of style to their bullet journal. The beauty of this type of journal is that it is completely your design. No bullet journal looks the same because they are physical expressions of our mind and creativity. Maybe writing down your thoughts isn't for you. After all, we are not all good at expressing our thoughts on paper or have a legible handwriting.
If that's the case, you might want to try video recording, a method that could be one of the best therapeutic devices you've ever used. After all, we all feel better when we let off steam with someone, right? Well, the daily video combines that ventilation session with a journal outing. A book journal can be about your opinion of a particular book or the list of books you may want to read at a certain time (such as a reading list). You can even use it to jot down your favorite quotes or lines to reread them later. If you are a great reader of books or if you like to read and urge people to read a book because you liked it a lot, then this could be the journal you would want to try. If you're learning to play an instrument or write a song, this could be the journal you should start working on.
You can write about the songs you are learning or listening to or even make a playlist. Writing about your daily practice sessions can help you learn an instrument in a short time. Even if you don't play an instrument, you can make a musical journal to write about your favorite genres, bands and musicians. A menstruation journal can be used to track the monthly cycle, flow, and emotional symptoms. It can help you plan your activities and trips by recording your mood for a month.
It can also help predict your mood for the next month's cycle. Tracking your period can help you remember certain details with your doctor. You can also make him remember his activities during that time of the month. In a bullet journal, bullet points are used as the central structure when taking notes. It can be used to write things you don't want to forget.
Can be used to take notes in meetings, conferences and classrooms. Making it creative so as not to forget them depends on person to person. It can be any way you want it to be. Not only this, but you can use it to record your goals, plans and to-do lists. A poetry journal is quite easy to maintain if you are an aspiring poet or if you are a poetry lover. You can write down your poetry ideas in the journal so you don't forget them later, or you can write your favorite poems to read them whenever you want.
If you want, you can write about your favorite poets. A travel journal can include the places you have visited, and you can write about your experiences. It can be a collection of your adventures and memories. You can even make a list of the places you want to visit. It can be about new things you learn on your trip or the hidden places you find.
It can even be your itinerary. Listography lets you go at your own pace while The 52 Lists Project challenges you to do one list per week during the year. The questions range from “List the ways you can clean up your life for spring” to “List the bad things you did as a child”.In The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron (one of my favorite twelve-week exercises), she assigns “pages in the morning” - three pages first thing each morning of what you want to write in flow-of-consciousness style - even if all one has to say is “I don't know what to say” over and over again. Surely there are more than twenty types of journals out there since one can write about literally anything! Different types of journals have different purposes but what is important is that one perceives registration as an activity of relief and gratification, because that is what it should be.
