A brand new listener asked, “Apart from the obvious (recording your thoughts) what does journal-writing actually do for you?”
Each and every single episode of this podcast provides at least one unique answer to this, but Mari and I thought it would be nice to take this opportunity to share OUR favorite benefits.
At the conclusion of the 30-Day Digital Journaling Challenge, we asked the 1,400+ participants to share what benefits they experienced by keeping an electronic journal. If you’d like to see those results, please add yourself to our mailing list here, and take the Challenge yourself!
In the book, 101 Reasons To Write a Journal, the author devotes an entire chapter to eight main benefits he received personally from journal-writing over 20 years. Here are the chapters:
1. Self-Improvement (Reasons 1-28)
2. Creativity (Reasons 29-36)
3. Family (Reasons 37-49)
4. Writing (Reasons 50-62)
5. Problem-Solving (Reasons 63-71)
6. Spirituality (Reasons 72-82)
7. Daily Life (Reasons 83-91)
8. Logging (Reasons 92-101)
Fuel the dialogue: What benefits have YOU received from keeping a journal? Post your response at the bottom of this webpage, in the comments section.
You may also reply with your own journaling questions to be featured on a future episode of JournalTalk. Or, pick up the telephone and leave a voicemail with your question at 1-805-751-6280 (only normal toll charges may apply). If your question is featured, we will send you a thank-you gift for sharing your voice! (JournalTalk Q&A, Episode #16, November 18, 2014)
