I always have a notebook and keep a journal but I don’t always write in it. I like the idea of journaling every day but I don’t always have the energy for it.
I’ve been trying a new journaling method where at the end of the day I cover an A4 page of a visual diary with notes and pictures to capture that day. It’s a quick way to journal with notes and dot points rather than pages and pages of sentences, and I love that I can combine it with drawing.
It’s a place to record anything from dreams, ideas, random thoughts, milestones, to-do lists, wishlists, and a list of things I’m grateful for.
I’ve also been practising some faux calligraphy, trying out different doodles, and trying out different pens.
It’s good just to have ten minutes or so where I can just relax, reflect and have the freedom to create without needing to create a masterpiece.
It’s a fun outlet, a creative practice ground, and a quick way to record the day.
Do you journal?
