Why You Should Keep Your Journal Positive
I’m sure you’ve heard about the wonderful benefits of keeping a daily positive journal.
Journaling is just as great as you think it is. It comes with a world of creative freedom and you can make with it what you wish. It’s a great way to get what’s on your mind down on paper.
All the parts of your day that are eating at you and all that anger that is erupting inside of you can be exploded onto a piece of paper. With it, you can let go of those emotions and raging thoughts deep inside of you.
While the freedom to vent without judgment is one of the many benefits of journaling, it is even more beneficial for you to journal your positive, hopeful thoughts. Here’s why:
It Increases Gratitude
We are always so caught up in the negative. We spend too much time focusing and writing down what went wrong with our day than recognizing what went right.
There is an endless amount of beauty in this world and too much we take for granted. Every day, journal about the people you love, the gifts you have, and the fortune you’ve been given. Once you consider all the blessings in your life, even the worst days won’t seem quite as bad.

Builds an Optimistic Attitude
Getting into the habit of writing down positive thoughts and events will help shift your mindset to become more positive.
For many of us, we’ve fallen deep into the habit of self-deprecation and it has become quite a challenge to break. Changing your perspective won’t happen overnight, but keeping a daily positive journal could be a great and simple way to change how you think forever.
Every time you want to write down something negative, change it to something positive. In time, you will find your mind making this change as well.
What You Put Out Into the World is What You Receive
If you release negativity into the world, you will only receive more negativity.
Journaling can be a great way to manifest your desires or shoo them away. If you want something, write it down.
Write down how achieving this desire would impact all your senses. Write about it like you already have it — as if you are already experiencing the benefits. Putting these feelings out into the world can and will attract a positive outcome that will fulfill your desires. Radiate positive energy and the universe will reward you.
Start the habit of losing yourself in writing down all your blessings and emitting all of your happiness onto a blank page. Even if you’re feeling deep in a rut, unlucky, and unloved, you can still release some optimism into the world.
