For as long as I can remember I love journals, pens, drawing and writing. I have a box full of old diaries, holiday scrapbooks and other notebooks from the past years. Still I journal almost every day.
And I have a journal in which I write for half an hour (almost) every day. I write about what happened, how I feel, what my wishes are, what my fears are.. This is a personal notebook in which I write everything that I can possibly think about.
This morning I was reflecting about why I enjoy journaling. Here are five reasons why I love to write.
Every month I include a Habit Tracker in my Bullet Journal. It’s one of the things I love about my Bullet Journaling and it’s one of the things that boosts my productivity. It’s a chart which allows me to keep track of my habits and to see how I’m progressing. It’s a helpful tool to manage my time and to see what I do on a daily (or not so daily) basis. Also Habit Trackers are a great way to save you time re-writing the same tasks multiple times per week to remind you to do those tasks.
In 2017 I started with Bullet Journaling. For 2018 I started in a new journal. I write down my plans and goals, but I also like to make lists and track things. One of the things I track in my Bullet Journal are the postcards I send with Postcrossing.
What is Postcrossing? Postcrossing is a project that allows you to send and recieve postcards from all over the world. You can sign up for free. After signing up, you can request an address of a random member. Now you can write and send a postcard. For each postcard you send, you will receive one back.
