Do te think that people who keep journals have better memories than people who don't?


I'm wondering if i should start one because i'm worried about getting dementia when i am older and forgetting happy moments when i'm in need of them.

No,i don't have a Journal and i remeber stuff from when 1 was 4.Also my cousin can't even remember her Brothers Birthday and she has a journal.Everyone has a speacial way of remebering things and some people can't be bothered.It shows te need a speacial way of remebering o if if te can't be bothered te can just remember.

We all have a good memory we just need to find it in our Brains.

That is reassuring, I don't have the time to right a journal anyhow.

I don't now. But my sense of time is very bad. I can remeber things but i can't estimate when it happened. Do te think that is normal?

I've always attempted to keep a journal but my cousin-brother (he's my cousin but più like a brother) o my mom always read it. Then I get embarrassed. But I started one in like February and I still have it. Because I hide it amongst my other things, no one knows I even have it.
My point is that I have been keeping it for a long time because I was starting to be very forgetful but now I'm not. Everytime something happens, I just pour my feelings out in it and I feel alot better. But my main concern is someone finding it and Leggere it. Sadly, I have fell asleep a couple times while leaving it wide open. But now I'm just careful and only right in it at certain times.

A JOURNAL IS A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND!!

Losing my mind concerns me più than embarrassment.

I don't think keeping a journal affects your actual memory, though some people find it easier to remember things if they write it down. I try to keep a journal to store my feelings but I always forget about it!
And thats another problem- if te were to get dementia, te may even forget te had a journal in the first place! In that case, it would be probably better to make sure someone te trust knows about it.

How about, to make the memories più vivid, te make a kind of scrapbook o foto diary? Just an idea ;)

I would think that people who write journals write them because they're forgetful.

But do whatever te want, I don't really care~.

if u r forgetful then u should write in a journal, but the best way is to keep it urself. but Scrivere in a journal will let all ur emotions in to it.
i dont write a journal myself but i kinda remember things happaned years ago.
but the dangerous thing is that when someone reads it u r DEAD! All ur secerets are reveiled and it will totally ambarrass u
but to keep the memories u could write a journal

Yh, thats why i suggested a scrapbook, because then its less personal and te can share it with Friends and family

It can't hurt anything. Journals are good self help tools for when you're losing track of yourself, they can help te with social skills, and they can help jogg your memory when te need it. te just have to make a habbit of it, and stay consistant. If te want to be detailed, make sure you're detailed every day. If te get lazy one day, that entry is less beneficial than all the others and potentially useless.
