Journaling: Bringing Meditation To Life
Journaling is an easy way to be responsible for your actions on a day-by-day basis, and no one does this better than the Stoics. Marcus Aurelius, a well-known Emperor of Rome is well known for using journaling for being accountable for his time and improving his interactions with others.
Obstacles are always a favorite topic and my favorites come from an old Taoist saying:
Direct your thoughts because they will turn into speech. The speech will turn into actions. Actions will turn into habits. And Habits will turn into character.
Morning journaling can set your mind to focus on how you will approach the day.
Evening journaling has you be accountable for today’s actions and lets you think about how to improve those actions.
The Unexamined Life is Not Worth Living ~ Socrates
As you journal like a Stoic each day will become an important way to wake up to how we see and interact with the world around us.
