How often do you write in your journal?

Dear Fellow Journalers,

This dilemma plagues New journal writers and often some of us too. Does it matter how often you write? Whether you write often depends on your purpose for writing. Is it to keep track of your garden or you journey through a different state? Are you experimenting with mindfulness? Are you trying new recipes? Are you tracking your goals or health symptoms?

If journal writing is pleasurable, then writing is its own reward. If it has become a chore then you are more likely to “forget” to write. Here are a few ways to keep writing consistently:

  • Make your journal writing more upbeat. Remind yourself about the good things in your life.
  • If an unpleasant issue comes up, remind yourself that ranting, venting, and reflection is a process just for you.
  • Write at the same time every day, if possible.
  • Think about what’s stopping you from writing and write about that.
  • Write a one-word journal entry that captures your day. Once you’ve determined that word, writing about it takes no time at all.

Remember, it only matters that you write consistently so 1) you don’t stop keeping a journal and 2) when you ‘re-read your journal there are enough entries to retrain the continuity of your life.
