There are many benefits to keeping a journal, but one may surprise you.

According to the Harvard Business School, setting aside 15 minutes a day for journaling will increase your productivity by almost 23%!

The researchers put new employees into groups where people either reflected on their days or didn’t. In the reflection group, employees were given a paper journal and asked to spend 15 minutes at the end of their workdays writing about what went well that day, which they did for 10 days.

The result: The journaling employees had 22.8% higher performance than the control group.

So, tell your boss you need to leave work 15 minutes early, so you can concentrate on your journal entry.
