Journaling – Why You Should Write A Journal

Have you ever thought about writing a journal?

Well, it’s never too late. Here are three reasons why you should start your journaling journey.


Therapeutic Benefits

Journaling can be therapeutic.

Writing and expressing your thoughts and feelings can give you clarity and leave you feeling grateful. You may start to notice things you’ve overlooked or had taken for granted.

It can also help you work through emotions and process them.

Clarity of Mind

Clutter in your mind can make you feel bogged down or overwhelmed. That’s why people love to-do lists. They clear up space in your head and allow your mind to focus on other stuff. Journaling may have the same effect.

It’s also a great way to clear your mind before going to sleep. So you may want to add this to your bedtime routine.

There are several ways to journal and you can find a style that fits your needs and helps you put your thoughts onto paper so that you will be present to live life more fully.


Many seniors start entertaining the idea of writing a memoir at some point. A journal makes a great reference source to lay the foundation of your memoir. You can later expand on many of the experiences you documented when they were still fresh in your memory. And you can reflect on the processes you’ve undergone overtime. It’s all there in your journal.

So, keeping a journal definitely has its benefits whatever your age. These are only three of them. Once you start the process, you’re likely to notice more on your own.
