Why you should journal

Why to journal — I started doing this again recently and was looking for reasons why to do it.

The point of the daily diary exercise is not to record what you already know about what happened to you in the last 24 hours. Instead, it’s an invitation to the back of your mind to come forward and reveal to you the perishable images about the day you didn’t notice you noticed at all.

-Lynda Barry (via Austin Kleon)
