Stirring creativity through journaling

Creativity promotes innovation. Without it, a person cannot produce fresh, out-of-the-box solutions to every day problems. It is something every individual holds, but not every one practices. Here’s why anyone can boost their creativity through journaling.

Writing (without the backspace) helps people think freely 

Writing without expectations helps people become more creative. While writing with a backspace bar can be quite strenuous, especially for experienced writers, writing freely encourages the creative process without barring one’s thoughts. 

Journaling is a good way to practice one’s voice 

When people strive to write perfectly (or well), they fail to translate their real ideas on their page, which requires their trust to their own voice. While it’s perfectly okay to create great material, the personal voice can only be developed if it is unedited. The voice comes out without edits, and the journal exists to show the writer’s messiness. That being said, the journal is a great place to discover one’s voice. 

Writing on a journal is a record what one wants, thinks, and who they want to become 

While photographs are a record of how people changed physically over time, journals document how much one’s personality unfolds day by day. It is a record of what has been, what is, and what will be.

Park Photography: The Best Places To Visit

If you’re into park photography, then you know the best places to visit are America’s national parks. These places are dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of the country.  Here’s a list of national parks that you ought to visit.

Bryce Canyon National Park

Bryce Canyon is less popular than Zion and the Grand Canyon, and that’s a good thing. The place won’t be that crowded, plus, there are geological similarities to Grand Canyon. The park is located in southwest Utah.

Sagarmatha National Park

This park is known for Mt. Everest. But this park has more to offer.  Sagarmatha has a designation as an Important Bird Area. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to photograph diverse kinds of bird species. Be warned though, the terrain is not easy to trek. So if you’re not used to hiking rugged places, then this might not be for you.

Serengeti National Park 

This park is perfect for wildlife photography. This place is heavily protected due to its wide range of wildlife. It’s also worth mentioning that no humans are allowed to live there, meaning the place is 100 percent home to wildlife.
