Intelligent Change has given us a great insight into the different types of journals available to us. From the free-flowing thought diary to the self-reflection journal, there are many ways to express our thoughts and feelings. One of the most popular journaling methods is the bullet journal, which has become a popular creative outlet shared on social media. It serves as a self-made planner, but you can add much more if you want.
If writing isn't your thing, you could try video recording or listography. The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is a twelve-week exercise that assigns “pages in the morning” to explore your inner self. The 52 Lists Project challenges you to do one list a week for a year. A vignette journal is great for documenting your day or a special holiday.
Bullet journaling is a system for organizing and tracking events, ideas, projects, tasks or anything else your heart desires. Lastly, keeping a gratitude journal can help focus on the good things in life and lead to positive changes. No matter what type of journaling you choose, it can be an incredibly therapeutic and rewarding experience. It can help you get to know yourself better, discover what you want and how you feel about different areas of your life. It can also be an outlet for processing difficult emotions and releasing tension and anxiety.
Journaling can be as creative or as simple as you want it to be. So why not give it a try?.
