  3. Keep it in sight.
  4. Having the journal where you can see it will remind you to use it.

  5. Make small entries.
  6. No need for long entries, so long as you get down the essence of what you experienced, felt, saw, etc.

  7. Write in it daily.
  8. Even if you only write a sentence or two, this will help build the journal habit.

  9. Create a ritual.
  10. Maybe you do it as part of your bedtime routine. Or, you set aside a special place and time each day to write. It doesn't matter, as long as you do it.
