What Is Journaling?

Have you ever wondered how a journal differs from a diary? Are you curious about the benefits of journaling? Are you aware of the ways journaling can improve your physical health? In this lesson, I'll help you explore these important topics and share with you a selection from one of the most famous journals of all time.

Journaling Tools, Aids, and Resources

If you're like many journalers, you enjoy learning about different tools and resources you can use to strengthen your journaling practice. In this lesson, I'll guide you through taking a closer look at the different kinds of journaling, journals, writing utensils, paper, online journals, and software programs that can enrich your writing. By the time you're finished with this lesson, you'll know much more about journaling tools, aids, and resources than you ever thought possible!

Beginning to Journal

Now that you've learned the basics, it's time to get started journaling! Today I'll share a seven-step journaling process with you to help ease you into writing, even if you've never journaled before. I'll also introduce you to two kinds of writing prompts to jumpstart your journaling. Then we'll talk about how you can protect your journal's safety and your confidentiality as you write.

Filling Your Journaling Toolbox with Techniques

In the previous lesson, I introduced you to two fundamental types of journaling exercises. In this lesson, I'll teach you four more. By adding such tools as list making, writing prompts, dialogues, and unsent letters to your journaling toolbox, you'll not only enrich your journaling, but keep yourself motivated to write for years to come!

Art and Journaling

Have you ever wondered how to make a journal from scratch? If so, you're in luck because that's exactly what you'll learn in this lesson. And if that's not something that interests you, fear not because you'll also discover other playful ways to customize your journal, such as decorating your journal's cover and myriad ways to incorporate art and scrapbooking techniques into your journal's pages.

Journaling for Self-Discovery

One of the most important reasons most people journal is to discover themselves. Are you ready to discover who you are? Then join me in taking a closer look at the purpose of thoughts and feelings. In this lesson, I'll help you discover your thoughts, feelings, and values, and demonstrate how to explore all three in the safe space of your journal.

Journaling for Emotional Well-Being

In our previous lesson, you learned about the difference between emotions and feelings and why both are so vital. Today, I'll build on that foundation by delving into emotional intelligence, which is your capacity to work effectively with your own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. I'll teach you how your journal can support you in learning the critical skills necessary for true emotional well-being.

Journaling and Creativity

Are you a creative person? If you're breathing (and I presume you are!), then you most certainly are creative. Today, I'll share with you a liberating definition of creativity, and guide you on a tour of the three-step creative process—conception, incubation, and birth. You'll enjoy collecting new ways to express yourself and your creativity in the pages of your journal.

Journaling Through Chaos, Crisis, and Change

A lot of people begin journaling after some significant life change that upsets the applecart of their existence. Has that ever happened to you? In this lesson, I'll help you explore the Cycle of Change and rediscover your life's true story in the process. You'll also discover how your journal can aid you in weathering the chaotic and unexpected winds of change. Then we'll talk about how journaling can ease the stress of unwanted change throughout the course of your life.

Journaling Your Dreams

Are you as curious about and fascinated by dreams as I am? If so, you'll really enjoy this lesson. After teaching you the major types of dreams and dream themes, I'll delve into the power of symbols. Then I'll share a dream journaling process with you that you can implement as frequently as you like. And, if you have trouble remembering your dreams, I'll even show you how to turn that pattern around!

Journaling to Develop Your Career

Of all the types of journaling I'll share with you in this course, this is the one you probably know the least about—and need the most! I'll begin this lesson by showing you the career-development process so you can see for yourself how journaling can help you do everything from choose a career or college major, write a resume, prepare for job interviews, or even advance your career to the next stage.

Evaluating Your Journaling Habit

So far in this course, you've gained a wealth of knowledge about journaling, discovered more journaling prompts than you can count, and begun to journal regularly. Now it's time to learn how to evaluate your journaling to see if it's helping you in the ways you hoped. I'll teach you how and when to examine your journaling habit and suggest ways you can keep your journaling habit fresh as the years go by.

An excellent course. It exceeded my expectations and I am absolutely sure I will use the information throughout the years.

Cheryl, thank you for a very meaningful class. I know that I will use this material over and over again. I have been inspired to really focus on the benefits to be gained from journaling. The material you had for us was so much more thought provoking than I expected for a journaling class. I have a whole new appreciation for the art of journaling.

Great course on the psychology of journaling and I enjoyed getting back into writing. Very inspiring and personal. I have learned much to take with me in my writing adventure. Thank you.

I have benefited immensely from this class and highly recommend it to anyone who has used journaling to explore their inner life and to get honest and current with themselves. The instructor has presented valuable information and resources also for those who are new to journaling. Enjoy! You will not be disappointed.

I have kept a journal (on and off) for 20 years. In the past year, I noticed huge gaps in time between entries, so I decided to take this class to get me back on track. As a result of this course, not only am I writing in my journal more frequently, but I'm having a blast doing so! My entries are more focused and insightful and full of zest and optimism. I've also started to record my dreams, which is a new experience for me. Thank you for giving us the tools and techniques to make our journal writing more efficient, beneficial and fun!

I knew I would enjoy this class just from reading the course outline, but I didn't expect it to have such a huge impact on me. I rediscovered the joy of writing and used my journaling to make major changes in my life. This has been one of the most powerful experiences I have ever had. Each lesson was exactly what I was hoping to learn, and so much more. I have two degrees, but this course is one that will continue to have a positive impact every day. Thank you so much!

I learned a lot more from this course than I thought I would. I will be using this information for the rest of my life.

I'm new to journaling and this course has been a wonderful surprise. I had no idea the practice of journaling offered so many benefits and can be such a helpful, powerful tool in our lives.

I really appreciated the different techniques and tools of journaling the class afforded. I also am interested in exploring the dream areas more. There was just a lot of information and ideas that I think will be helpful down the line.

Thank you for this class, because I really needed some direction and a safe place to share my thoughts and dreams.
