I’m a bit of a journal junkie. I will find any excuse to buy a new notebook. Journaling and notetaking are great practices for both creativity and reflection. Everyone has their own system that works for them. I know a lot of people who keep one notebook for everything.  Everyone has their own system that works for them.

Everyone has their own system that works for them. I know a lot of people who keep one notebook for everything.  I personally keep several notebooks for different purposes and that works well for me. I also keep these books in their own locations. It helps me to concentrate on one particular thing at a time. I keep a personal journal by my reading chair, a notebook for work ideas to brainstorm at the office, I keep a notepad on my nightstand to write down random ideas that wake me up a night (otherwise I can’t fall back asleep), and I keep a mini notebook in my purse for article ideas and other thoughts that come to me on the go. I realize how obsessive and crazy this sounds, but it’s my way of compartmentalizing different areas of my life.

I now have yet another journal to add to my list. I started keeping a notebook to reflect on my yoga practice. I log my workouts, reflect on how I felt during each class, and keep notes on poses I want to improve on, yoga books I want to read, etc. I purchased Chronical Books’ Yoga Journal because I loved the layout, but anyone could do a similar practice with a blank notebook. I store it by my meditation area in my apartment so I can get into the practice of ending meditation time with this reflection on days I do yoga.

Do you keep a journal(s)? Please share any creative practices you have.
