Why do you or why might you keep a journal?

There are many reasons you might keep a journal. Perhaps you are interested in personal growth, gaining new self-awareness, making a life decision, finding greater clarity, or want to improve your health with journaling.  It can be so helpful to know “why” you want to journal. It is your “why” that helps you create the journaling habit. When you know “why” you want to do something, you are more likely to do it consistently over time.

That is why I am thrilled to share this list of 278 Reasons to Keep a Journal created by one of our IAJW Members, Sarabelle Prince.  Sarabelle is a journal writer and I trust her incredible list of reasons to keep a journal will inspire you to find your own reasons to write, and to keep writing well into the future.
