@Er3mos @mike @hillarymcbride I've journalled on and off since my teens. Mainly for thinking things through rather than organisation. Last year I tried bullet journalling because my memory and focus really seemed to take a nosedive for a period. It's stuck and I've found it very useful and flexible. Easy to incorporate unstructured things like morning pages and more structured self-reflection, study, book summaries etc. I'm analogue because I'm a stationery and pen fiend.
@luminesce @mike @hillarymcbride I've just started this past year. When my family and I ended up homeless last September I knew I need a running list of things. I starter with physical journals since getting back on our feet I have migrated to apps. Day one mostly but there's also a video one I've been using too. That puts live photos or 3 sec clips into a calendar for me.

@Er3mos @mike @hillarymcbride I’ve been keeping pretty intense journals since my twenties (late forties now!). Usually hardcore journaling during difficult times, then I have very little record of the good stuff. Oops! For me, physical journals are best. There is something to the mind-body stuff of handwriting, it’s uni-tasking + most importantly gives me an excuse to sink deep into my obsession w/ paper & fountain pens. I have to like how everything feels & looks, that’s part of the whole thing
@Er3mos @mike @hillarymcbride ...that said, I do also have and use the Day One app, which I LOVE. The design is aesthetically pleasing to me, offers just the right amount of features, and I can use it across all my iOS & OS devices. And it has nice touches like option of including the weather and location at the time of your entry, and you can add tags for searching, easily add pictures. I think it even has some journaling prompts if you find that helpful and aren’t sure what to write.
