Uses of journaling include:
*Figuring out problems
*Working through stressful situations/writing to heal
* Documenting positive events to refer to later when needed, i.e., when you’re feeling down
*Tracking progress in various endeavors, e.g., dieting, forgiveness
*Visual journaling for wellness/stress-reduction
*Consolidating learning and enhancing creative thought
Journaling is free, you can do it almost any time and it doesn’t require any physical exertion or special equipment. People have all sorts of admonitions as to how it must be done: daily, 20 minutes, keep it private, buy a pretty journal, a new pen, etc.
There are just two things I think might actually be important. First, to try not to self-sensor. Your journal is your opportunity to say what you think. Next, if you want to really give it a try, you’re going to have to commit to doing it for a few weeks.
