4. Keep a journal
Regularly writing for yourself, without any other readers to keep in mind and try to please, is a really healthy, beneficial thing to do. It's a great way to release stress in a productive and safe way, to avoid you burning out at work or letting your responsibilities get on top of you. You can write about anything you like - things you're grateful for, a record of amusing anecdotes, little events you witness that restore your faith in humanity, a simple record of what you've done that day or how you're feeling. Literally anything can be scribbled down, because it's your private space, and all of these ideas can be crucial ingredients to remaining positive and optimistic. The retrospective quality that much journaling has also means that you can review ideas or events in a safe, uninterrupted space, often leading to a better understanding or realisations about things that have happened, opening up doors for new and better ideas. Your journal won't only be a tool for reflecting though, it's also a great way to plan things, write goals, keep organised and make a record of your inspirations.
