1. Art Journaling – Create a masterpiece to answer the question. Go all out! Use any type of art medium you want: paint, clay, chalk, sand, or anything else you can think of. Let your imagination run wild.
2. Doodle Journaling – Create funky doodles throughout the pages of the journal to brainstorm and answer the daily activities. Use emoji’s, animals or silly shapes to express yourself.
3. Good Old Fashion Writing – This is the most common way people journal, through the power of the pen. Placing words on the paper doesn’t have to be boring or in complete sentences. Use brainstorming bubbles, lists, or word associations to find the right thing to say.
4. Music Journaling – This might be a bit out there but give it a chance. You can write songs or music score to answer a question. You can also listen to favorite songs (or explore new songs) and then use the lyrics to assist in answering the questions.
Whatever way you journal is up to you! Try one style or try them all, just remember to keep going.
