Syllabus

What Is Journaling?

Have you ever wondered how a journal differs from a diary? Are you curious about the benefits of journaling? Are you aware of the ways journaling can improve your physical health? This lesson will help you explore these important topics and share with you a selection from one of the most famous journals of all time.

Journaling Tools, Aids, and Resources

If you're like many journalers, you enjoy learning about different tools and resources you can use to strengthen your journaling practice. This lesson will guide you through taking a closer look at the different kinds of journaling, journals, writing utensils, paper, online journals, and software programs that can enrich your writing. By the time you're finished with this lesson, you'll know much more about journaling tools, aids, and resources than you ever thought possible!

Beginning to Journal

Now that you've learned the basics, it's time to get started journaling! In this lesson, you'll look at a seven-step journaling process that will help ease you into writing, even if you've never journaled before. The lesson will also introduce you to two kinds of writing prompts to jumpstart your journaling and then talk about how you can protect your journal's safety and your confidentiality as you write.

Filling Your Journaling Toolbox with Techniques

The previous lesson introduced you to two fundamental types of journaling exercises. This lesson will teach you four more. By adding such tools as list making, writing prompts, dialogues, and unsent letters to your journaling toolbox, you'll not only enrich your journaling, but keep yourself motivated to write for years to come!

Art and Journaling

Have you ever wondered how to make a journal from scratch? If so, you're in luck because that's exactly what you'll learn in this lesson. And if that's not something that interests you, fear not because you'll also discover other playful ways to customize your journal, such as decorating your journal's cover and myriad ways to incorporate art and scrapbooking techniques into your journal's pages.

Journaling for Self-Discovery

One of the most important reasons why people journal is to discover themselves. Are you ready to discover who you are? In this lesson, you'll discover your thoughts, feelings, and values, and demonstrate how to explore all three in the safe space of your journal.

Journaling for Emotional Well-Being

In the previous lesson, you learned about the difference between emotions and feelings and why both are so vital. In this lesson, you'll build on that foundation by delving into emotional intelligence, which is your capacity to work effectively with your own emotions, as well as the emotions of others. You'll learn how your journal can support you in learning the critical skills necessary for true emotional well-being.

Journaling and Creativity

Are you a creative person? If you're breathing (and hopefully you are!), then you most certainly are creative. This lesson will share with you a liberating definition of creativity and guide you on a tour of the three-step creative process—conception, incubation, and birth. You'll enjoy collecting new ways to express yourself and your creativity in the pages of your journal.

Journaling Through Chaos, Crisis, and Change

A lot of people begin journaling after some significant life change that upsets the applecart of their existence. Has that ever happened to you? In this lesson, you'll explore the Cycle of Change and rediscover your life's true story in the process. You'll also discover how your journal can aid you in weathering the chaotic and unexpected winds of change. Afterwards, you'll learn about how journaling can ease the stress of unwanted change throughout the course of your life.

Journaling Your Dreams

Are you fascinated by your own dreams? If so, you'll really enjoy this lesson. After learning about the major types of dreams and dream themes, you'll delve into the power of symbols. Then, you'll learn about a dream journaling process that you can implement as frequently as you like. If you're having trouble remembering your dreams, the lesson will even show you how to turn that pattern around!

Journaling to Develop Your Career

Of all the types of journaling that will be shared with you in this course, this is the one you probably know the least about—and need the most! You'll begin this lesson by looking at the career-development process so you can see for yourself how journaling can help you do everything from choosing a career or college major, writing a resume, preparing for job interviews, or even advancing your career to the next stage.

Evaluating Your Journaling Habit

So far in this course, you've gained a wealth of knowledge about journaling, discovered more journaling prompts than you can count, and begun to journal regularly. Now it's time to learn how to evaluate your journaling to see if it's helping you in the ways you hoped. This lesson will teach you how and when to examine your journaling habit and suggest ways you can keep your journaling habit fresh as the years go by.
