You can make a journal whatever you want it to be. You can fill a journal with pretty pictures and quotes, and use it to explore how you feel. Or fill it with all the amazing things you’re grateful for. One of the most exciting things about keeping a journal is that journaling boosts self-confidence. Journaling for confidence is amazing!

I wanted to take some time and share six reasons I believe that journaling can boost self-confidence. Perhaps reading these might motivate you to start keeping a journal? We'll see. Maybe journaling for confidence will open more doors for you than you thought possible!

6 ways to journal for confidence

Be open and free

Journaling encourages you to write openly and freely. Doing so makes it easy to discover the true you, what makes you tick and the things you love (and dislike). Unless you’re thinking about sharing your journal with others, nobody will see what you write. This means you can be completely honest. It is possible that you’ll be more honest with yourself than ever before.

New perspectives

Journaling can help to retrain your brain and look at life with a new perspective. We all have experiences we over react to or see as negative. Occasionally, these experiences are not as bad as they seem. By journaling about these experiences, we can explore how we truly feel. The chances are, when we write it out, it won’t feel so bad. The more we do this, the more likely we are to see life in a generally more positive way.

Relive the good times

Writing about positive experiences fools your brain into thinking it is happening again. I'm not making this up either! If you write in detail about a positive experience, you'll find you feel the same way you did when it happened. 

The brain is underestimated and magical. Who wouldn't want to relive the feelings of their best experiences?

Free your mind from worry

Journaling can also help free your mind from worries. If you write your concerns down, they don't tend to feel so big. Sometimes, writing worries down can help you to solve them. Meaning you are able to remove these issues from your "worry list" altogether.

Mindfulness

Often, when we think about mindfulness, we think of meditation and sitting in odd ways. But, mindfulness is about being present and/or focusing on one thing at a time (i.e. mindful eating). Well! When you're journaling, you can only write one thing at a time. And you can only write about the thing you're focusing on. Mindfulness! Need I say more?

Celebration

A journal does not only need to be a place to dump your inner thoughts and feelings. It can also be a place of celebration and vision. Recording achievements (big or small) and goals means you have tons of positive things to look back on.

As I said at the start of this post, a journal can be anything you want it to be. It can be random words, pages of thoughts, doodles or pictures. But having been writing for way over 10 years now, I can say for sure that journaling for confidence is amazing. Don't believe me? Try it for yourself!
