A pandemic situation is going on throughout the world. With the COVID-19, many people are locked down in their home and practicing social distancing. This is a difficult time for everyone. That is the reason why you should start a journal right away.
If you always had an interest in journal writing but never had the time to sit down and write down your thoughts, then this is the time for you, my friend. You can utilize this lockdown time and start journal writing.
I will give you 3 reasons why you should start a journal right now.
Reason #1: Clear Out Your Mind
Journal writing has always been an effective way to pour your heart out through words. The COVID-19 situation has given life to stress and anxiety for many people. But when you write the things that you have in your mind, your heart and mind both feel lighter and you as a whole feel a lot better.
Try it out. Even just a few paragraphs may help you.
Reason #2: Help You Solve Your Problems
Writing your problems in a journal is just like sharing them with your friend. Your friend listens to you and offers you some advice. In the same way, when you write your problem in a journal, you can better understand the deeper problem and come up with a solution by yourself.
Reason #3: Remember Better With Your Journal
Everyone knows this. When you write something, you tend to remember it better in the future. Journal writing will help you remember events and memories. You may want to cherish them forever and writing in a journal will aid you in that.
Later on, when all of this pandemic is over, you can sit down, read your journal and remember the time when the whole world was facing this difficult situation.
So, start writing right away!
