Effective memory; The self-growth-journal pt 1

I always had a journal, but I admit never organized it. After watching youtube videos and doing research. I had the motivation to start one myself. One, where I could put all my knowledge into, and where I could write all the things I want to. This is part-one in part-two I will talk about how you can create a brilliant journal where you will feel at home. I think I have found my way in journalling, hopefully you will do after this serie. So, Today I will share you why you will benefits from creating your own self-growth journal.

Why you should consider starting a journal,

1, You will increase your own memory up till 90%. Studies shows us that by writing and thinking it down you will grow your memory and remember more. So you will still know what that book is about you read last year. And remember when your friends birthday is ;)

2, You will discover yourself more and more. By writing down thoughts and emotions. You will see how you behave and will learn from your own experience. Simply by writing down thought. And how you would behave now if the same situation is coming back. This is one of the best benifits for developing yourself. And you'll see the results quickly.

3, You will increase your writings. Every time you write down in your journal you will gain growth in your writings. Because you will become a day to day writer. So, hopefully I'll soon get a better handwriting.

4, It is a space for only you. It connect you with your dreams. What you love and get to know your conscious. When you live with parents or roommates. There is no one to judge you. It is just such a freedom of writing. It is only you and yourself :)

5, You will be more creative. You will draw, write, paint. Whatever it is just so wonderful to create new things everyday, which you can reflect back too. Tip; look on pinterest for inspiration. There is so much fun things to do with a journal!

6, It will give you an overview of your life. Whenever you will look back you will see your personal growth. It so wonderful to see how much you grow each day.  I think it is a great benefit from keeping a journal. And in my unorganized life it is kind of necessary. I'm sure you'll have a more organized life after developing the habit of using the journal.

The next thing to do is to create your own personal journal. You will learn how in part-two of this two-part serie “ Effective memory; The self-growth-journal ”. Hope you enjoy it, let me know, down below. See you next time!

The importance of reading

Today we are going to discuss the importance of reading. Reading has been in our lives since the middle ages but it faded away in the begining of this century. Mainly under teenagers it isn't popular anymore. Therefore I wanted you to show the importance of reading. Because a lot of people don't see the use in books nowadays. So let's get started,
Reading has a lot of benefits to the mind. The first benefit is that the mind needs the practice of reading to sense the words it sees. It develops the ability to connect the words to images in the head. So how more you read how faster and better you will read. And it will give you a bigger arsenal of vocabulary. Further reading create the ability to focus better and really listen to people in general. Because you train your brain to concentrate on one thing at a time. It also improves your memory because when we read, we are using our memory muscle. Joseph ones used a great metaphor, which explains it all;
Reading is to the m…

Why you should never compare yourself with other

I really was a shy twelve-year old (I know that is a long time ago). And during that time, I spent most of my school days comparing myself to others. But after a while, actually years, I finally opened my mind and saw that comparing really is a bad thing in life. Comparing is what sugar is for your health. It ruins attitude towards yourself. In my case, it really destroyed me. But, today I want to show you why you should not compare yourself, and where you should focus on. So let’s get started!

Comparing is never fair.
We all have a different past. We all are different.Maybe that someone has so much money because he started saving on an early age. As a result he has now more money, so what. Let your past be and focus on now. Or maybe your neighbor has a great six-pack. Don’t worry about it you are a good person, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have that six-pack. You will get there, if you want to. After all comparing will just never be fair. Because of the fact that we all are differe…
