If you think journaling is just for pouring your heart out or keeping tabs on your emotions, think again. The practice actually can benefit just about any area of your life, including your work and creativity. 

In fact, this Forbes article touts the creative benefits of journaling for entrepreneurs, stating how jotting down ideas can help you remain focused on your goals. But your journal doesn’t need to be all business for you to benefit creatively. Experiment with a gratitude journal, planning journal, bullet journal, even a doodle journal to clear your mind and make room for new ideas.
