Although technological advancements have made it possible to access many items across a spectrum, it has been repeatedly shown that writing information down helps enhance memory and learning in a way that cannot be replicated when using computer devices to type information. Sometimes, the distractions alone from using a device (apps, open browser tabs, access to the internet) can draw your attention away from tasks at hand. Sometimes a "tech break" and simple disconnect can help improve your memory, focus, and creativity.
Using your journal
You've decided to start writing, now how do you actually use your notebook? Do you have a system? Do you just write things down and never look at them again? Do you check back to make sure you are accomplishing your goals? There are plenty of systems out there, but we tend to like the Bullet Journal style the best. It is very flexible to fit your needs and easy to learn. We will be going over some interesting ways to make this style work for smaller notebooks so you can always have it with you.
Things you can use it for:
- To-do Lists
- Shopping list
- Favorite things
- Meeting or school notes
- Self improvement tracking
- Diet or Workout planning and tracking
- Weekly/Monthly Planning
- Remember something important
- Tracking your progress on anything
We would love to hear what you use to jot your notes in and what you would like to see from Fold Journal.
