Why we love to journal: the importance of writing down what you want to achieve.

Journaling and writing down your goals is something we love at Slowly Golden store, it’s how we envisioned setting up our store and bringing our business to life. It can be a powerful tool for achieving success in life. When you write down your goals, you are more likely to remember them and stay motivated to achieve them.

It’s easier to track your progress and assess what you need to do to reach your goals, by writing them down. When you write, you are also more likely to clarify what you want and why you want it so badly, this clarity can help you make better decisions that are aligned with your goals.

Additionally, writing down your thoughts and feelings can help you process them and gain clarity. This is why we love using our Dear Future journal in store, it can be a way to relieve stress and anxiety, and a means to better understand yourself and what you want your 2023 year and beyond to bring. When you write about how you feel, you can identify patterns and triggers that affect your mood and behaviour. This self-awareness can help you manage your emotions and improve your relationships.

By reflecting on your past experiences and setting goals for the future, you can create a more fulfilling and purposeful life for yourself. Our Dear Journal can be a record of your personal growth and development over the year. It can help you see how far you have come and what you have achieved. It can also be a way to explore your values, beliefs, and aspirations. By identifying what is important to you, you can make choices that align with your purpose and bring you closer to your goals.

To get started with journaling, try setting aside some time each day to write down your thoughts, goals, and aspirations. You can write about anything that comes to mind - your dreams, your fears, your hopes, and your struggles. You might also consider using a journal prompt or template to help guide your writing. There are many resources available online that can help you get started. Remember, the most important thing is to be consistent and committed to the practice of journaling. By making it a habit, you can unlock the power of this simple but effective tool.

There are many different approaches to journaling, and what works for one person may not work for another. Experiment with different styles and find what works best for you. With time and practice, you can use journaling as a tool for self-discovery, personal growth, and achieving your goals.

You can find our favourite guided journal here. It’s designed to help you uncover your unrealised potential, with over 120 prompted questions that have been carefully written to encourage thought-provoking answers, all with the intention in mind, to guide you to think more deeply about your future. Reflect & Create, focus on the good. As you create your vision for 2023, take a moment to remember what you want to bring along with you - the friends, family, projects, and dreams (always) that are the foundations of what happens next. Gratitude actually creates room for more of the good things in life - a beautiful ritual to continue with in 2023.
