How Journaling Can Change Your Life

Journaling has been always considered as therapeutic. It helps you better understand yourself and the world around you but did you know that, the daily simple act of writing about your thoughts has a lot more mental and physical rewards? Here’s a list of how journaling can change your life:

Building a habit has a process which the scientists call the “habit loop.” It has 3 parts; a cue, a routine and a reward. Say for example, using toothpaste. Nobody used it about a hundred years ago. But a certain guy named Claude Hopkins introduced its concept via the habit loop.
