Journaling  Tips
Vary your entry style. Even changing the color of the pen you're using can change the mood and insights of the writer or reader.

Grow by taking risks. Your journal is a safe place to risk placing new ideas and new techniques of expessing yourself on the page.

Use pictures, sketches, and photographs. Even watercolor blotches can bring the page (and your thoughts) to life.

Give your pages special smells by pressing leaves or flowers, or other objects in your journal. Smell is the strongest of the senses to key memories.

Capture those lyrics, titles, quotations, and other meaningful gems that greet you daily but escape if they are not written down.

Write our actual observations on one side, and how you feel about what you saw on the other.
