5 Reasons I love to Journal

Hello friends! Today, I am so excited to share this post that Faith wrote for my blog. Faith blogs over at Faith's Girly Life where she shares diy, fashion, lifestyle, and her heart for Jesus. I hope you enjoy this post as much as I did! -Elissa


Hey everyone! I'm Faith from Faith's Girly Life and I was blessed to have the chance to guest post here on Letters to Jayna! Lately I've gotten more into journaling (you can check out some more about that over on my blog) so I thought I'd share 5 reasons why I love to journal. Hope y'all enjoy!

1. It's a good "wind down" tool-
A lot of times I will journal at night before I go to sleep. I think it's just a good way to end the day. It's quiet, it's clam, and I find that when I'm done writing I feel good about going to sleep.

2. Getting things on paper is a good release-
This one is pretty simple. But I feel like sometimes writing stud down is a good way to get it out of your mind and let it go.

3. I learn more about myself-
Sometimes journaling really makes you think, and this allows you to really dig into who you are. how you feel, and what you believe.

4. I can be totally me no matter what-
There's no one judging you on a piece of paper, so there's no reason not to say exactly what you want to. This has been so freeing for me as someone who gets very anxious about what others think about it.

5. It refocuses my mind-
Having something specific to write about really helps me just focus my mind when it's normally very hectic (I'm that person who has a million things going on in their mind at once)

So do you journal? What made you start? What do you like about it? Let me (& Elissa) know! & feel free to check out faithsgirlylife.blogspot.com for more of my blog posts!

XOXO

I don't look at fitspiration: here's why

 

I don't look at 'fitsporation'.
I don't believe we should use shame and jealousy to motivate ourselves into making healthy choices.
I don't believe losing weight is the key to success.
I don't agree that I am a bad person if I eat a cupcake.
 
I don't want to stare at six packs and thigh gaps all day.
I refuse to believe loosing weight is the answer to bigger problems.
 
I do strive to be healthy.
I try to eat whole foods, drink lots of water, and exercise at least 5 days a week. 
 
But I don't need my perception of healthy or beauty distorted by "motivating" tips.
I don't think women need to use pictures to motivate them to become healthy.
I think women need to understand they are valuable no matter what size they are.  
 
So there, I said it.
I don't look at fitsporation, at that's why.
