Thanks for giving us even more inspiration to journal:-) I have started, although I still am not being very consistent with it. I'm hoping this will change eventually:-) I do find that it is easy enough to do, once I am actually doing it. Thanks again for all your tips and lessons:-) I'm already looking forward to the next one:-)

12. Self-Discovery - Discover who you are. Writing about yourself helps clarify who you are, your beliefs, and what you want and don't want in life.
13. Focus and Calrity - When writing about you in an h onst mode, you become more focused, you save time because you know what you want, you save money because you can say no fster. It organizes your thoughts and feelings. You can plan bteter.
14. New solutions to solve problems - When writing your thoughts down on paper you find and think of new ways of tapping into your subconscious and getting your ideas out. You see in a different light and find solutions you didn't know you knew.
15. Creativity is enhanced - Jotting down inspiring thoughts or ideas and acollecting them gives you peace of mind, clarity and more focus. You find new ways to express yourself. You can get deeper into the intuitive level of your brain. The journal can even become an expression of your artistic abilities.
16. Sanctuary and escape - It is a great way to excape from chaotic feelings or events or to escape from everyday life and explore a more exciting inner life. Separating yourself from others' influences, delivers a stronger sense of your own identity as an individual, as a human being. The time you share with yourself generates a great sense of peace. It boosts your confidence and self-esteem as well.
17. emotioanl Therapy - Your journal can be your best friend - it always listens and never criticizes. You reduce stress, work through fears, problems get reduced to their real size.
18. Can physically help healing - Journaling when you are ill or when someonen close to you is ill h eps healing. All doctors and hospitals throughout the United States recommends journaling to all their patients. There are even journal workships offered in some hospitals and they are growing at a high rate.
19. Shows you how to enjoy life more. Increases your happiness level at least 60%. It allows different perceptions to be evalluated with no consequences.
20. Timeline - Over the years, your journal becomes a record of your accomplishments, travels, prsonal growth, etc. Recording the who, what, when, where, why and how of past events helps you to remember details you problably would have forgotten otherwise. New stories to tell teh grand children later one.
21. Improves communicatioin skills - Over time your writing and communication skkills will improve because you come better and better at expressing yourself on paper - which is the key to quality writing. It gives your thoughts organization.
22. Valuable record - Recording who you were, what you did, what you thought, what you liked and disliked, etc. is a record of YOU and your identity. leaving your journals for your descendants allows them to remember YOU. They wo uld know so muchmore about YOU than just a few worn photos, name, date of birth. Trust me, after a long time of doing this, they will never read and critique your writing or your crossed out words., etc. They will enjoy and savor your every word and cherish it forever. Look at Anne Fran's journals.

23. Friendship Journal - keep track of your friends, addresses, jobs, marriages, children etc., because eventually, we all move apart. If possible, get their address and name in their own handwriting.
