Writing a journal will always be a success when it means that it helps you connect with yourself and with what is happening around you . That helps you see things from a broader perspective and enjoy every second of your life. Writing connects directly with your brain and your emotions, so it will help you realize what are the most important aspects in your life.

Your journal can become your refuge. You will see an evolution in you over the years, you will see that your handwriting is never always the same and you will also see how the aesthetics of your diaries change as you do it inside. No matter how sad you are or how happy you feel before you start writing … somehow you will be in your exclusive world, a place where only you belong and you only need 5 minutes to achieve it.

Why write?

If you write 5 minutes a day you will not need a why, because you will realize that it will really work, it will make you feel better. You won’t be around for long and it will be a little pill of happiness that will make you feel much better. If you feel a little lost and unhappy you will realize that you have not written for a while … because if you do, you will not have these feelings inside you.

At each blank word, as you write word by word, you will find that you begin to connect with your inner self. This is a human thing. We all know that we will be happier if we eat better, exercise, disconnect from technology, sleep more, etc. But many times we can feel unhappy trying to be happier.

Writing tips

You will not always feel better after writing and this is not bad, this means that there is something else within you that you must value and solve. There are those who feel darkness when writing but then feel that it is what they should put on paper to feel better later. Generally with time and perspective, you can see that just the act of writing and getting those ideas out of your head is therapeutic.

Journaling based on how you feel will make you happier

When you are burned you will have to talk to your inner hero. You must have good communication with your interior, enhance the relationship with yourself. Connect with you. In the same way that you have to make time to connect with the people in your life who mean the most to you, you also have to make time to listen to your voice: to remember what YOU sound like amid all the noise in the world. . To listen to your inner hero.

Basically, if you are burned out, you have somehow allowed your circumstances to take over your life. In other words, you have started to act like the victim instead of the hero.

Fortunately, just 5 minutes in your journal can help you find your inner hero (your true voice) and claim your right to live your happiest life. Write these questions one by one and answer them being 100% honest:

-Why do I feel this way?

-Have I blamed someone other than myself for my feelings ?

-Assuming 100% responsibility for my own life and my decisions, and without blaming anyone (including me), how can I improve this situation?

-What decisions am I currently making to remain in these circumstances (how do I choose them)?

-What new decisions can I start to make to get closer to where I want to be?

-What do I have to leave to regain my energy ? What should I say “no” to ?

When you start to play your own hero role, you begin to realize that your current choices and limiting beliefs may be preventing you from living the happiest version of your life. The good news is that once you realize that your past choices have led you to your current circumstances , you also realize that you can make different decisions to get yourself to a happier place .

In your journal you can write anything that comes to mind. Good, bad, doubtful feelings … you choose!
