How to keep a journal

Hey everyone,

You've  probably tried many times to start a journal but than you don't have motivation to keep going, and you quit. This has happenend to me a lot. But now for about 2 months I have managed to keep writing in my journal everyday. It's good to write in it. You can write about everything that bothers you and it releases stress. I write about things that happenend to me that day, all the things I'm afraid of telling others I write about. It's also fun when your a bit older to look back at the journal and read all the fun stories you wrote. Here are some tips to start a journal and of course keep writing in it. ;)



1. Buy a diary or journal. First choose a diary that you think is cute and it the right size. You can also keep your dairy online if you prefer that. It's faster. The only think that's more handy with a paper version is that you can bring it everywhere with you. And you can decorate it with cute things. For cute journals/diarys go to bookstores in your neighbourhood or Kate Spade sells really cute ones. 

2. Decide what kind of journal you want. There are a lot of different types of journal. It's important to choose what you want to write in your journal. For example you have a vacation journal. That's only for a short period. You write about each day of your vacation. Al the fun things that you did there. Like a complete journey of your vacation. Also you have a gratitude journal. In this you write about what your thankful each day. I personally think that that is a very nice idea. And a dream journal. In this you write about all the dreams you have and have accomplished each day. These can be small wishes (accomplishments) that you want to achieve each day. Of course there are a lot more types of journals to keep. Keep in mind to choose for which occasion you want to use them. :)


3. So you finally chose your perfect journal. But now the only thing is, is to keep writing in it. Choose a specific time each day you want to write in it. This helps your to make a routine of it. Fill your journal with whatever you like, your fav movies, interests it doesn't matter. It's all about you. Also quotes that are inspiring to you. It's sort of your own lifebook. ;) You can fill it with cute doodles and skeches and photos of your family and best friends. You can write about what happend to you that day. What you learned about it. Things like that. Use your inspiration. Also keep your journal in a secret place where nobody can find it. 

Hope it helped.
Thanks for reading! And remember keep writing! :)

Have a lovely day,

Isabella
