How to Start a Journaling Habit and Taking a moment to write about today

Starting your journaling habit can be a daunting task.

You may be working yourself up with a myriad of self-doubting questions.

  • What should you write about?
  • Should you write every day?
  • What happens if you don’t write every day?

These questions may be valid concerns in your head, but they aren’t worth worrying about. Who cares what you write about! It is for you and you alone.

What about writing every day, it would be nice, wouldn’t it? Inevitably life gets in the way and all of a sudden a month has gone by since you touched the journal stashed in your dresser drawer.

What if you had a daily journal prompt? How about a recording service where you get a daily journal prompt via email? These tools may help you write more consistently. You write your entry, submit it, and at the end of the month, you receive a PDF of all of your entries. At the end of a year, you would have enough to begin a book depending on what you wrote about.

Throughout the process you will have the opportunity to ask questions, talk about what you are writing about, and anything else you think will aid you in this journey. You will find the support you need to make journaling a part of your daily life.

When we journal, we are recording our legacy each day.

Every day is a good day to write something down about

  • how you are feeling
  • what happened that day or the day before
  • what your dreams are
  • where you want to be in 5 years
  • your past

Whatever you may do tomorrow, today is here right now. Now is as good a time as any to start your writing practice.
