Many people wonder why they should invest in a quality leather journal compared to a paperback one. Some of the reasons include: a sturdier journal, a more professional journal for note keeping, and a journal that you can count on to not bend and flex when you throw it into your bag. Not only does it look infinitely better than the average composition notebook, but it is an elegant medium of journaling that has become a time-honored tradition.
Your Leather Journal Is More Than A Diary
Journaling has been shown to have a positive impact when it comes to one's physical well-being, with a study by the University of Texas at Austin noting that regular journaling can actually strengthen your immune system. It has been shown to reduce the symptoms associated with asthma, and external stressors.
An area where journaling tends to shine, is when it comes to emotions and introspection. At any given moment, you are grappling with trying to organize a maelstrom of emotions that you might have a difficult time deciphering – journaling allows you to jot down your emotions and quickly get in touch with your internal world. It's a practice that allows you to know yourself a bit better, with the routine providing clarity in murky situations. It is very normal for toxic people and stressors to suddenly become evident once you jot down your emotions onto paper. Regardless of what you write about – it can be anything from an annoyance or painful memories – writing can help you reduce stress and allow you to feel calmer and be better able to stay in the present.
Journaling also gives you the unique benefit of pinpointing patterns and trends in your social life. Some may not be cognizant of long form trends that may not be obvious to them right now. Journaling and writing down what you feel will allow you to go back into the past and potentially find patterns that you might deem toxic, ineffective, or poisonous to your emotional wellbeing.
Evoking and Inspiring Mindfulness
You might've heard of "mindfulness" and the unique vantage point that it can give you when it comes to assessing your current emotion. There is a very strong connection between happiness and writing down your thoughts, with journaling bringing you into a state of mindfulness that will allow you to defuse past anxieties and frustrations so it won't affect you in the future.
Journaling on your leather journal is you actively participating in a mindful practice. Regardless if you jot down a few ideas in the morning, or defuse at the end of the day with a few journal passages, it can help release current and past anxieties, and tensions that might've gotten in your way of social prosperity.
Taking Care of Your Leather Journal
Even though a lot sturdier than a composition notebook, be cognizant about where you store your leather journal. They may make a statement on your bedside table, but try to keep it away from prolonged sunlight, as it can potentially dry the leather.
Routinely wipe down the journal with a spray designed for leather goods. Many of these cleaners are formulated with water repellent properties to resist the effects of high humidity, as it can potentially make the leather extremely pliable, to the point that it may start to fray.
Most importantly, make sure that you leather journal stays clean. Dirt and food crumbs will only jeopardize the beautiful leather interface, with some stains being particularly difficult to remove and lift off of the leather journal.
