Journal in Five Minutes or Less to Boost Happiness

"Journaling can boost happiness and resilience and create more focus in your life," says Judith Joy, author, dream creation guide and journaling coach.  “Daily journaling helps develop important insights into your behavior and feelings, while recording precious elements of your life story.” 

The ups and downs from living with a pandemic have seeped into every corner of our everyday lives. “You can change the trajectory of what you expect and get in life by creating a map of your thoughts through journaling,” she says. “Journaling gives you a place to put your feelings, to examine your choices and see what is possible. It keeps you focused on what you want, which lowers stress –that’s especially important during times of uncertainty.”

Some people like the idea of journaling, but they sidestep doing it because they say they’re too busy to devote any amount of time to it.  You don't need a lot of time to reap the benefits of journaling. Joy explains, “All you need is a few focused minutes. Just a short period of time each day can help you see things in a new way.”

Research has found that writing your thoughts on paper when the world around you is in a state of flux, can reduce depression and anxiety, build resilience and boost happiness.  Meet Judith Joy when she presents in this Zoom event and start journaling yourself to a happier you!
