Art of Journaling

Paper has more patience than people - Anne Frank

Journaling is something I have been doing on and off since 2013.

I have tried analogue and digital. I love analogue more than digital journaling.

Inspired by Ryan Holiday’s Daily Stoic podcast epidsode on keeping a journal and Micro Monday podcast episode 77 with microblogger Natalie Hester, I am restarting my journaling practice from today. It’s my favourite longhand stream of consciousnesss journaling. There is something magical about putting pen to paper. Blank page never intimidates me. I’m more comfortable on a blank sheet of paper than on blinking cursor.

So, why not give journaling a try? Just 5 minutes. Pen to paper or digital. Go!
