Honey Bee Print is passionate about teaching our customers how to create a lifestyle of memory keeping.
A part of that lifestyle is journaling! Not only does this help with adding a description to your photos (when you get ready to create your Honey Bee photo book), but it allows you to recall the memory much quicker. The more senses you involve in recalling or learning something, the better you will be at recalling it.
It doesn’t take much to start a daily journaling habit – a pen, paper, and 10 minutes are all you really need.
Having a hard time knowing what to write?
Here are 20 Daily Journal Questions to help you get started, along with Questions to Preserve Your Photos to help you recall the most precious memories. Not all questions will be relevant for your photos or maybe some of the daily questions don’t ring true with you, that’s okay, use what you can to get that pen to paper, and JUST START writing!
