LifeJournal™ Newsletter – May 2007

LifeJournal Newsletter – May 2007
I hope you are enjoying the beautiful spring weather. My husband and I were biking last weekend in the Finger Lake region of New York State and we were taken by the magic of spring–tulips and azaleas blooming, warblers singing and flitting about, lilacs blooming and infusing the air with a sweet smell–it was a veritable sensual feast!  Remember to take the time to soak up this glorious time of year and then, of course, write in your journal about your experiences.

This month’s newsletter contains an article about how you can use LifeJournal to help you sleep better if you have insomnia. And there’s an article about some finer features of LifeJournal entries: formatting options and adding links.

Journaling to Sleep Better  

If you suffer from insomnia, keeping a journal may help you get more sleep. Sleep researchers* tell us that some insomnia occurs because people process the day’s unfinished business at bedtime, interfering with their sleep.

One solution is to consciously process your thoughts and feeling earlier in the day, writing in your journal with enough time before bedtime to move onto more relaxing thoughts prior to sleep.

Another form of insomnia is sleep interruption: After going to sleep some people wake up feeling stressed and unable to go back to sleep. When
An Unsolicited Testimonial from a Long-Time LifeJournal Writer

“I have over four years worth of entries with anywhere from a few lines to many pages, but something every day. LifeJournal is a great tool, and although I sometimes fight the urge to switch to Word because of the more sophisticated editing capabilities, I have never found anything that comes close to LifeJournal for the perfect blend of form and function.

It’s about the writing, after all!”

–Russ Lemker

 Journal Entry Feature Details 

Even people who have used LifeJournal 2 for years, may not know that there are other ways to control and modify the formatting of a journal entry than from the journal entry toolbar and menu:  One can change the line spacing from single (the default) to any multiple that you would like.
