You can journal in time when you want or need to.
So if you are reading a book, you can capture the main ideas in your journal as you are reading.
Or if you come up with some idea during the day, you better catch it in your journal immediately to avoid forgetting it.
Same as the time when you want to journal for your work tasks.
In other cases, there are two particular times during the day when journaling can be the most beneficial.
The first one is before you go to sleep.
Have you ever thought about some life problem or wanted to find the answer to your question but couldn't?
Or maybe you want to come up with some ideas?
Thomas Edison famously said: "Never go to sleep without a request to your subconscious."
At night our subconscious minds continue to work.
The subconscious mind is mighty and responsible for most of the processes in our buddies, from digestion to blood circulation.
While our conscious mind is limited, our subconscious is much more powerful.
Successful people from various fields use their subconscious to find solutions to problems, make decisions and get ideas…
And a journal is a handy tool for this.
