  • Plus, actor Matthew McConaughey wants guys to take a little time to meditate on their hopes and dreams. On Tuesday, the Oscar-winning actor, 52, opened up to his followers in a video about the virtues of journaling, imploring men to be more introspective about their feelings through the power of writing. “Look I’ve had a lot of my male friends, dudes, say, ‘Nah I don’t want to journal, man. Dudes don’t journal.’ Yeah we do and I’ll tell you why,” he begins the video message. “Any of you dudes out there who work daily to be better men, have places you want to go, things you want to achieve in life, be better fathers, be better friends, be better at our career, write them down.” McConaughey goes on to argue that when we begin to jot down the aspirations we have for our lives, we become “objectively aware of what we’re trying to achieve and what we’re chasing.” “It’s like a personal contract with ourselves that we can look at — or not look at — to keep us on track and get us where we want to go,” he says. “So there you go, dudes. Get yourself a journal and pull a pen out.”
