Have you noticed that most really successful people sit down and write their thoughts, plans, dreams, discoveries and problems?

Throughout history great people have left a diary of some sort not so much for posterity but as a tool to work out what is, in many cases, their own madness.

I was recently reintroduced to the power of journaling and reminded of the healing that awaits us when we sit with pen and paper to express our thoughts.

When you journal, your mind slows down and you’re able to put your problems down on paper where they often look much smaller.

Journaling is a great practice to lower stress and create a sense of purpose and direction.

Today, spend ten minutes reading your own thoughts as they spill from your pen.

You’ll find it enlightening.
