Writing in your journal is more powerful than simple meditation for the same reason that writing your goals down is more powerful than leaving them in your head.*
It’s the same inward journey we’ve seen before: the plunge inward and then the expansion outward.**
Writing is an incredible gift: when we write something out then we are more likely to be consistent.
Try it: think of something you want to accomplish this week.
Now try writing it out: spot the difference?
