Journal Keeping Techniques

Journaling Joys From the desk of Jill Schoenberg— Joys of Journaling #2 |

In order to keep journal keeping fresh and exciting, you have to mix it up a bit. So today I want to share with you some of my favorite journaling techniques.

Journaling Techniques

In my journal, I sometimes use freewriting, while at other times I write about a specific topic from my day. And, even though I do not consider myself an artist, I’ve been known to draw pictures in my journal and sometimes I surprise myself with some great stuff!Journaling Joys

But one of my very favorite journaling techniques is to copy quotes or inspirational pictures from a website and paste them into my journal. When I do this I usually add my own musings, although sometimes I don’t.

The key to keeping your journaling fresh and exciting:

Express Yourself in YOUR Journal in a Way that Feels Joyful and Right to YOU.

When you take this approach your journal writing and journaling ideas flow abundantly and freely.

Until next time… journal on!

Sincerely,

Jill
