One thing you might not have thought of is experimenting with your journal. Journaling is so much more than just putting your thoughts and feelings down on paper. That is definitely a big part of it, but there is almost an endless amount of benefits for your physical, emotional, and mental health.

Try Different Things

Experimenting with your journal can be accomplished in a few different ways, depending on what you are trying to get out of it. If you’ve been writing about your thoughts or using it for affirmations, you could switch it up if you are trying to find a new way to find your path to being healthy in terms of exercise and nutrition. You can then make a meal plan and grocery list. After that, write in the journal each day about how the diet is going, changes to make, and whether or not this experiment is working for you.

Or you could start using some crayons, colored pencils and markers to add to your journal.

You could also write about your day in list format instead of sentences and get it all out as quickly as possible.

Work Out Your Problems

More often than not, I use my journal to solve a problem that need some sorting out. Writing about what the problem is and stating it clearly can help me brainstorm some ideas to work out what my next best step would be.

Find More Clarity

The more details you write down in your journal, the more self-awareness you gain. Every area of your life can be experimented with in a while, from trying new morning or evening routines, to figuring out the perfect method of sleeping better at night. It can be useful for physical and mental health, as well as emotional health if you use your journal in the right way. The key is to write everything down and keep looking back at previous pages when you’re trying to find a pattern.
