Why Keeping a Journal Is Important

What is your life story? What do you want to remember when you are older? These are questions that many people ask themselves every day. If you don't keep a journal, then it can be difficult for others to know the details of your life. There's no better time than now to start writing down what matters most to you!

1. Keeping a journal is a great way to get in touch with your thoughts and feelings

You write down in your journal different moments in your life. They can be positive or negative. Write down these moments based on how you are feeling at the time these moments happened to you. This is a great way of knowing how you were feeling back then when a particular moment happened in your life and you can use this as a basis on how to feel in case the same moment happens again later in your life.

2. It's also an awesome way to keep track of your life, including major events that may otherwise be forgotten

We cannot possibly remember every single detail and instance that goes through in our lives. If we write down what matters most in a journal, then it becomes easier for us to keep track and know the different events that happened. It can be big or small things. Just write anything that you don't want to forget, especially important memories that happen in your life.

3. Journals can help you sort through complicated emotions and make sense of difficult situations

Jotting down things in your journal can help in sorting out your mind whenever you are feeling down or lost in your life. What were your goals back then? What did you plan to do a few weeks or months ago? Questions like these will make you reevaluate what you really wanted to do in life and if you have noted them down in your journal, it helps in remembering your original goals and ideas in your life that might have changed as the years went by.

4. Journaling can slow down time

A journal cannot literally slow down time but what it does is that it helps us sit back and take a look at things that have happened in the past which we might have forgotten because we are rushing things too much in our life. Take some time to focus on what you have done in the past and cherish those moments. Looking back at things might help you get a new perspective on the present or steer you towards a different goal. The journal can also help in losing negative feelings as you look back on positive things that have happened to you in the past.


Journaling is a great way to get your thoughts out and keep track of what you’re feeling. In fact, it can help you figure out how best to proceed with life decisions or other stressful situations. If journaling has been something that interests you for a while but hasn’t had the time, now might be the perfect time to start. It may seem like an intimidating task at first, but there are plenty of ways in which people have found success through journaling over the years. Whether it comes down to finding new creative inspiration or simply getting their mind off things for a few minutes each day, as long as they feel good about themselves after writing them down every night before bed or whenever you feel like it, then that is all worth it.
