30 Ways You Can Use a Journal for Personal Growth & Self-Discovery

Journaling can greatly support self expression. It connects us to the vital creative force within us. It is an extension of the heart through the hands. 


Journaling can be healing. It can spark a willingness to learn. It can be playful. It can guide us back to the heart space. It can connect with our inner child. It can become a practice of self-discovery or intentional rest.

Journaling for the purpose of self-discovery contains a wide spectrum. Each of us enter the self-discovery practice from our own angle. Some are focused on the personal growth aspects to expand the capacity for joy while others practice self-discovery to enhance creativity, productivity, or develop sustainable habits that support success in a career. 


Here are some of the ways to use a journal for the practice of self-discovery:
