Hey, it’s that time when I remind you why I write on different subjects. For one thing, I like writing about a variety of things. I enjoy sharing the information I receive.
I could write only about journaling, but you might get bored, so I share other information that works with journaling.
Below is information I shared to help you get into the journaling habit.
Getting Into The Habit Of Journaling Daily To Reap The Biggest Rewards
An adage says how you do anything is how you do everything. Translated, this means that habits are the surest indicator of outcomes. The generally accepted truth about habits is they take 21 days to develop. Doing something repeatedly for 21 days accounts for the mindset shift needed to integrate the behavior into our everyday lives. Little by little, what once was foreign becomes routine.
Here are 21 tips for developing your journaling habit:
- Don’t rush it
- Have great tools

As with everything, you must want to develop the habit of creating it. Ask yourself why you want to journal and how you believe life will be enriched for having done it. Discover what motivates you and make that motivation part of your routine.
The first time you try something new, you will likely be awkward. It will take longer than it ought to and feels unnatural. Sticking to the routine creates mastery, meaning things are effortless, and the results come easy. Keep at your journaling, and you will see the effort is easy and the outcomes better than ever.
Until tomorrow, stay safe, and keep the faith.
