There are so many different types of these and many of us use them on a daily basis.

Journals are a great way to get in touch with your thoughts and record your day…the day that will never come again. Reflecting on our days can help us get some perspective on what we did right or what we want to change.
Writing in a journal on a daily basis can be along the same lines of meditation. Many of us don’t take the time to look inside ourselves…self reflection. It’s a very healthy thing to do and helps with becoming accountable for ourselves and our actions.
Writing journals aren’t the only type of journals we can make. There are art journals that can help with expressing ourselves artistically. I saw a journal idea on Pinterest that had a list of questions to answer daily… another form of reflection.
