Journaling allows people to clarify their thoughts and feelings, thereby gaining valuable self-knowledge. It’s also a good problem-solving tool; oftentimes, one can hash out a problem and come up with solutions more easily on paper. Journaling need not be a cumbersome, timely and rigid affair, but instead it can be a very fun activity as there are no hard or fast rules about journaling. Any personal development activity which has great elements of fun in them usually tends to be the “stickability” activities lasting longer periods of time.

Meditation is intentionally stopping the activity of the mind. Stilling the mind enables mental clarity and poise. It allows you to remove the clatter of rapid thoughts that are continuous throughout the day. Although largely thought of as a spiritual practice, mediation also has many health benefits, such as:

Increasing blood flow and slowing the heart rate
Reducing high blood pressure
Decreasing muscle tension
Increasing serotonin, which affect mood levels
Reducing emotional distress

It can help improve concentration, which can affect all other activities in our lives; and it helps us live in the current moment, thus unlocking our creative potential.
