Today’s quote: “Write a diary, imagining that you are trying to make an old person jealous.”– Joe Dunthorne
Many people use a diary to keep track of their appointments. However, there are also some very creative ways to use your diary that you might like to try as well.
Here are five ideas to get you started…
1: Your Daily Three
Keep a note of three good things you’ve experienced that day,even if they’re small or silly. You’ll not only have a reminder of what you’ve done, but you’ll always have stories to share with friends.
2: Inspirational Thoughts
Diaries aren’t just good for sparking memories; they can also help you get through tough times. Whenever you find a quote that inspires you, or perhaps a poem that moves you, write it down. This will inspire you for years to come.
3: Keep Track of Birthdays
The bigger your circle of friends, the more birthdays you have to remember. By writing them down, you’ll always be on hand with gifts and wishes and, best of all, saying ‘it’s in my diary’ is so much nicer to hear than ‘it’s on my phone‘.
4: Note Problems Solved
Jot down how you dealt with a glitch – it could be something as simple as fixing a fuse – but this could be the start of a handy checklist. The next time you’re faced with a problem, you’ll know where to look for an answer.
5: Record your dreams
Keep a dream diary. It’s said that when we sleep, our subconscious works through things in order to help us you might find a solution to something that’s been troubling you. Remember that you’ve got hidden strengths.
