Why A Digital Travel Journal?
Journaling has the ability to impact your life in ways you’ve never imagined. Both Judy and Stu journaled their way into major life-decisions including changing their professions, setting out longterm goals and finding meaning in their lives both personally and professionally.
In fact, Stu transitioned from a full-time lawyer into a writer and entrepreneur after writing in his journal for nearly a year. What are some reasons you should consider using your digital travel journal while you are on the road:
1. Gives you Much Needed Break from technology
Journaling on the road gives you a desperately needed break from technology. We’ve become so trained to type on our devices – phones, computers, tablets – that many of us have forgotten the art of writing by hand.
Traveling is the absolute perfect time to put down your phone and pick up a pen. Give your eyes, ears and mind a break from the constant barrage of technology and use your free digital travel journal to write with your hand. You will find that writing freehand feels more “natural” and has a way of drawing thoughts and feelings out of you that you may not be able to type.
Most importantly, taking a break from tech will give you the chance to enjoy your trip. A vacation or road trip is a time to get away from the stressors of life – work, bills, taxes – and your tech will just keep your tethered to that world so long as you have it on you. Take this time to look outside your RV, car, bus, airplane – and appreciate the world around you.
Trust us, you will feel much more grounded and the “fog” swirling around your mind will lift (if only for 30 minutes).
2. Helps You Clarify Goals
Writing in your digital travel journal will help you clarify goals. Traveling is a great time to clear your mind and think about your future. What do you want? How do you get there? What’s holding me back?
When our mind is filled with daily stressors of life, we don’t have the time to think about our future. This is what keeps us STUCK in place. We are just living to get by and we keep putting off our hopes and dreams for the future.
Finding a quiet place to write in your journal will help you crystalize your goals for the future. Without the judgement of anyone else, you can write down your goal(s) and start making a roadmap how to achieve them.
Believe it or not, the simple act of just writing down your goal is a massive first step in the right direction. Once you breath your goal into being, magical things can begin to happen.
3. Being Honest With Yourself
All too often we hide behind a facade of what everyone else wants us to be. At work we need to be professional. At home we need to be the perfect wife/husband/parent. We hide behind so many masks that we don’t know who the true “me” is.
Journaling is an excellent way to openly and honestly be YOU. When its only you and your pen, you have to be brutally honest about how you feel about your current life situation.
Are you feeling like a success? A failure? Do you wish you had more time to travel? More time to spend with your children? Are you HAPPY?
Your digital travel journal is the place to write down any feelings and emotions you might be having. Sometimes getting those emotions out on paper in cathartic all in itself. Often you will find you will be surprised to see words that you can’t believe came from you.
The act of journaling is incredibly powerful tool to help you root up feelings that may be holding you back in life. Once you see the words on the page, you can decide what you want to do with them – if anything. Sometimes writing them down is just enough.
