It's me. Been a while. How are you? I hope that you are doing well.
I remember a time when I found joy in blogging. It was therapeutic. I used it as an outlet for many things: journaling my thoughts and experiences through fitness and health being number one.
Journaling has many benefits. I found a release from the stress of daily life, which is great for mental health. And of course writing not only harnesses your creativity, but it also helps you process and express ideas more effectively. Super good for setting and achieving goals!
I used to try to keep written journals, but for some reason, typing online was easier to stick to. It kept me accountable by letting the whole world into my life - goals were not just in a dusty book on my bedroom floor. I liked to be able to look back on past posts, to see where I was at during a particular time period. I had recorded all my mistakes and successes. And if I was feeling down, I could find things that I did well and try to replicate what I did to get back on track. Seeing my past achievements was a great boost when I needed it the most. And being able to see what didn't work was beneficial as well.
