Its true that as the worlds changed, people writing personal diaries has become less popular. This article shows just what people are missing out on by not doing it, and how writing a diary can enrich your life.

Diaries are less popular

As times have changed and the way in which people live in our world is becoming different. One pass time is no longer practiced as much as it used to be, and that is the pass time of keeping a diary. A lot people used to keep diaries, but these days thing's have changed and for a number of reasons most people are no longer doing it.

People just don't have the time any more, busy work schedules and surviving in this fast new modern age, has slowed down the old custom of writing a diary. Also some people use diary writing time to instead write for blogs or other online writing sites, forgetting altogether about keeping a personal diary. And the truth probably is that most these days just see writing a diary as a task not worth doing.

Why you should

There are still some out their who see the benefits of keeping a diary, and these people truly understand what an enriching experience keeping a diary can be. It has many plus points for you and your life, and can even help others. Some diaries have blew up into famous books, teaching readers a lesson in history, Anne Frank being one which springs to mind. There is no stronger literature in my opinion, than a well written diary. The bare truth and deep emotion of one's life, spread out and revealed on the white pages is truly magical.

Writing a diary also has a very therapeutic side to it as well. They say it is good to talk and get things out, and for me you do just that when you write in your diary. Its away of getting it all out their, and helps to make sense of what ever feelings or emotions you are going through at the time. Also when read back, you often notice where you have been going wrong, then a simple change of thought process is all that's needed to set you on the right road.

More great benefits

Another fantastic benefit when writing a diary is how it helps you reconnect with your own past and history. Our past and everything which came with it, can fade off in the distance as we get older. But with a few year old diary, you will have written documentation regarding your activities, emotions and feelings, so you can revisit them times when ever you wish to either analyse or enjoy. For me writing a diary is very enriching experience, and one which I wish was more popular these days.

I write regularly in a journal and in that way I develop ideas for other kinds of writing. I think rather than write in a diary, blogging is more popular now. It's just a modern version perhaps.
