Why You Should Start Journaling
At Paperlike, we’ve found many benefits from journaling. From being able to recall what happened and when to sleeping better at night knowing that the important stuff is written down, digital journaling creates real peace-of-mind. Once a year, we recommend a journal review, where you go over all the year's pages and get an impression of what good or bad things happened and at what scale. With that, you can take action to do more or less of that. The benefits of journaling are incredible, and when you add the digital element, it gets so much better.

Daily journaling can help you keep track of new habits and realize goals you want to achieve. Make your life healthier by reducing stress through meditation and tackle bad habits like smoking.

Books as Daily Journaling Inspiration
Reading a book with daily meditations before writing your daily journal is a great way to meditate on subjects that you'd otherwise not think about in your day-to-day life. For example, you could read "The Daily Stoic" from the Kindle App, which will give you a daily subject to meditate on. There are many more such books with short daily meditations.
Here’s a few:
- The Daily Stoic - Ryan Holiday
- The Word according to Mister Rogers - Fred Rogers
- 365 Tao: Daily Meditations - Ming-Dao Deng
“How I Use the Journal”
I hope you enjoy the daily practice of Journaling, and I'm confident that by the end of the one year of journaling, you'll see how immensely valuable it is. I do a yearly review after finishing the journal, so I can find habits that I need to improve, or enjoyable things that I hadn't thought I appreciated that much.
If you haven't started journaling daily, this is your chance to get this great habit going
