Journal, business manager, task manager, project manager and so on and so forth. That’s how flexible Daily Notes is.
We’ve mentioned before the power of journaling and how essential it can be for one’s personal growth. You can readily start a journal right on Daily Notes. Just do the following:
1. Open up Daily Notes and you’ll immediate see a Theme Selection screen. You can pick and change this anytime you want.
There’s something therapeutic about unloading on a blank page and just telling an inanimate object about what you really feel. Writing about yourself is a cathartic experience, it’s a frightening yet powerful activity that helps us understand ourselves better.
Frightening in a sense that, you will slowly come to understand what you really are and how you really feel. It gives you clarity, making you truthful and vulnerable to the things that you have been denying yourself for so long. You can’t escape your mind so you’re forced to deal with them by trying to understand yourself and how to handle the situation.
That in itself is also its power. That’s why journaling has become such a popular activity. Countless articles has touted the health benefits of journaling and we agree on all points especially on the following:
1. You are better connected with yourself.
Self awareness is necessary for self improvement and when you understand yourself better, when you are aware of who you really are, adapting to life changes seems much easier. Everyone is different. We all have unique personalities, attitudes, strengths, weaknesses, motivations, beliefs, etc. What applies to one doesn’t necessary apply to another. If a particular routine is working for your friend, that doesn’t mean that it will work on you. So the best way to deal with is to understand how your emotions, how you work then adapt to a way more suited for you.
Tell us your background.
My name is Huw James, an Adventurer, Scientist and Presenter from South Wales, UK. My background is in Astronomy and Space Science and am now a professional Science Communicator. My job is breaking down complex science into understandable chunks in the hope of inspiring a new generation of curious minds. Was born and raised in the Welsh valleys and still live here, though I get to travel a lot so it’s nice to come home after every trip!
What hobbies are you into and how did you get into it?
I’m one of those lucky people whose hobbies are their job. I do a lot of outdoor work, as well as climbing I’m a climbing instructor, and as well as mountaineering I’m a trained Mountain Leader. I also love playing with and talking about Science which means my work isn’t all that bad. Being so busy though and juggling lots of hobbies and projects means its super handy that I can organise my fun and work a week, month or year into the future with Daily Notes.
