If you’re still worrying, think about journaling.

Journaling is a century-old tradition that increases your self-comprehension and strengthens your spiritual life.

If it seems a little overwhelming to think of keeping a regular post, you are not alone.

Journals are available in a wide range of formats.

They can be just as plain as a three-ring binder and as elegant as a handmade paper book.

There is also journaling software on your computer.

Your code entries remain private, secure and easily accessible by date or topic (which comes in handy in search of trends in your thinking). 

Consider cultivating the habit of blocking 30-45 minutes while you’re young, clear-headed and alert every day.

Some people write at night; some early in the morning.

Just pick the best time for you. If you miss yourself a couple of days, just catch up where you left off.

It helps to obey a routine that puts you in the right mood.

More ways to start journaling when you’re worrying:

Some people light a sweet candle, for example, and play instrumental music softly in the background.

To compose your thoughts and to know who you are in, ask the Holy Spirit to inspire and guide you.

Then start reading a verse from the Bible or a regular help with dedication, then think about how it relates to your life.

It is important to read slowly, even aloud, and to highlight passages which cause thoughts about which you may wish to write.

If a topic catches your attention, you can also use the search engine of your computer to further study it on the internet.

Bookmark pages of interest or execute hard copies for future reference when logging into the folder.

Start each day with a separate page from the top so that you can see later how your thinking has changed over time.

Just below the date, add one or two sentences about what happens on that specific day in your life.

Then drop a line and add a related quote from the Bible or your reading material.

Expand your own thinking, write quickly and allow your views, thoughts and feelings to flow freely in a stream of consciousness style.

Worrying grammar?

Don’t think about grammar or punctuation; there is fantastic literature that you’re not writing.

Write down your hopes, dreams and ambitions when you experience the author’s block.

List your talents and those that have taught you, men you respect. Make a list of things for which you are grateful.

The length of your journal entries varies from day to day, depending on the events of your life.

But most days you will be able to add your thoughts and feelings to one or more pages.

Finish each entry with a short description of what was learned in your reflection, one or two lines.
