Keeping a journal and developing a regular journaling habit can be a rewarding practice. It can hone your deep reflection and patient introspection skills, something that’s both insightful and calming. But what does it mean to journal like a philosopher? Any journaling practice is partly philosophical because it encourages us to slow down and dedicate some time to purposeful, focused thinking. It can be and do more, however.
In this short video – How to Journal (Like a Philosopher) – Jared Henderson, a YouTube creator whose content on philosophy and intellectual life I thoroughly enjoy, shares his experience with journaling that incorporates some philosophers’ view of humans as narrative creatures. As a bonus, you will learn about a book you may be interested to read. Enjoy!
Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, I hope to share an insightful and thought-provoking article, podcast episode or video every weekend. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling to find meaning. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” posts are an online version of sharing meaningful stories.
keep exploring and storytelling!
