Benefits of Maintaining A Daily Diary
I always say, keep a diary and someday it’ll keep you”.- Mae West
Like a best friend, a diary is a good listener! It sounds like a good idea to pick the things that are important to you, as no one has time to write down everything.Diaries are an important part of anyone’s life and if you’re not keeping one, here’s why you should:
Reflection:It’s always important to look at where you’ve come from.It assists and informs you if you are heading in the right direction rather than remaining stale.
Therapeutic: Getting your feelings written down on paper feels much better than keeping them to yourself. It can also help you think about things more clearly, and maybe even help decide how you feel about things if you are unsure.
Improve your writing skills: Practice makes perfect! Seeing your writing develop is very rewarding.
Assessment: You can understand things you could have done better, if you have to write something down and consider it.
Focus:To identify strengths and the activities that brings you the greatest of joy.
Motivation:Looking back and ticking off those accomplishments is nothing short of completely rewarding, and by visualising goals on paper you are able to see the path you need to take to achieve them.
Above are few benefits for maintaining a daily diary; however there are many more aspects which act like a tool for thinking, expression, and acting.
