Four Ways to Find Balance Through Journalling

Between family, friends and work, there is constant pressure to remain connected. We understand what it is like to want to do it all and do it all perfectly. That demands a lot from us, leaving little time for personal reflection.

It is hard to imagine fitting anything else into our busy schedule, but studies have shown that journalling for only 20 minutes a day can improve overall well-being.

Here is a list of four ways journalling can help you achieve a balanced lifestyle with a #smittenfave, the Emily Ley Simplified Journal:

 

  1. Bring clarity to your thoughts

Seeing your feelings on paper will help to give perspective on what lies ahead. Start by breaking down larger thoughts into small, realistic tasks as a way to develop solutions that are right for you. Use the “How I’m Feeling Today” section in the Emily Ley Simplified Journal as a space to share and get a grasp on how you’re doing each today.

  1. Get to know yourself better

In writing, we evoke a state of mindfulness that helps us engage with the present. Use your journal as a tool to process your current state of mind. The “What Went Well Today” and “What was Challenging Today” sections will help you discover your strengths and learn where you can improve.

  1. Journalling reduces stress

Turn to your journal as an emotional release in troubling situations. The cover of Emily Ley’s Journal reads, “I will hold myself to a standard of grace not perfection.” This simple phrase puts you in the proper head space to write freely. It is also a sweet reminder to be kinder to yourself, when life does not go according to plan.

  1. Explore your creativity and realize success

A journal is the perfect outlet for creativity and building new ideas. The “Brain Dump” section in the Simplified Journal has no boundaries. So, dream big and write from the heart.
