We humans are generally in the habit of expecting more. Life is a melange of events of everyday life. We cannot sit back and remember each and everything of past. Today people have become so much obsessed with upgrading their living standards that the hardly get time to know what is that unique factor that has the potential to bring joy to their life. Or what is the USP of being happy in life. When we think about our lives, we generally expect that it’s the big events that will bring us the most joy. But at the same time we forget that life is made up of small events. So while a simple coffee date with an old friend or a night in cooking for your better half might not seem worth remembering, thinking back on these simple occurrences actually can bring us great pleasure later on.
Now the point is how to know which moment, on remembering it, can bring smile to your face. What if, you have a repository of past events? Definitely it will make your efforts smoother.
All you have to do is start with journal writing. It’s not a one day or one week task, that you finish it anyhow. Bring it to your routine life. Write just one sentence or two, if you are not given to writing. But make it a regular habit. Some people find it difficult as they don’t understand what to write? The solution is, write anything coming to your mind, throughout the day or night. You can mention the task you completed with least efforts. Your writing can also include your attitude while responding effectively to situations coming at your end. For example, if you have been confident enough while giving a presentation at a business meeting, and post its end, you realize that you really did fantastic job, it’s worth mentioning in your journal writing. When a series of events will be recorded, and when you go through them after a long time, it will for sure bring a sort of excitement in your mood. Turning pages will take you to the turning points of your life.
You can journal about any aspect of your life including your work or nothing in particular and still reap rewards. Just make sure you keep your journal somewhere handy to make recording that short recollection of your day super-convenient, avoiding any excuse to skip days. With the aid of technology, it has become flexible to write journal your events in your smart devices. It hardly takes time to do that. While in a metro, waiting for the destination, you can journal your events. It’s the best way t o utilize time and maintain your thought process.
