Screenshot Capture Is A Super Easy Way To Journal

Let’s end 2011 with a simple and amazing tip for your smartphone journal or diary app, okay? A few months ago I made a goal to include a picture with every entry I wrote, which is usually every day.

Journaling Is Statistically Proven To Make Me Happier and More Productive

The title of this post sounds a little funny, but it is actually kind of true. It all stems from something that has been referred to as “life hacking” which is when people devoutly and statistically track some aspects of their life and try and gain results and make improvements from the data.
