Have you seen this?

BuzzFeed had four peopleĀ journal for 10 minutes a day for a month. The results were less than thrilling.

The journaling was lacking direction, forcing a time constraint, and felt “like homework” to the participants. (Let’s be honest – 10 minutes a day can drag on if you’re not rushing out the door…)

The news wasn’t all terrible – journaling allowed the participants to get to know themselves a little better. One user even said “Journaling is the opposite of Instagram”… that’s pretty charming, don’t you think?

If you redid this experiment, what would you change?
