3 Most asked questions about journaling
Three questions about journal writing...
#1 - What if I can’t think of what to write? This is the most common question I get and I completely understand. It’s frustrating to sit down with your journal, carve out time for it, put pen to paper and then…nothing. Just staring at a blank page waiting for something insightful to spill out of you. This is why I’m such a huge fan of prompt writing. You always know just what to write.
#2 - What is “Prompt Writing”? Prompt writing means writing a chosen phrase or question at the top of your blank journal page to focus your mind and get your thoughts rolling. Once you put pen to paper to answer the prompt, you just let your writing take you wherever your brain wants to go. Surprising and exciting ideas can pop up on that journey.
#3 - Do I need to journal everyday to get all the benefits? There are many benefits to journal writing – my favorites are gaining clarity, relieving stress, and navigating big life changes with ease. But you don’t have to journal everyday to get these. It could be one journal entry for the month that makes you feel much better. It could be short entries everyday with a longer entry once in awhile.
It’s not how much you journal or for how long but that you know your journal is available. I’ve had weeks of journaling for hours on end followed by a couple weeks without a single journal entry. But they are all just as powerful.
