Journaling is the practice of keeping a diary or journal which explores your experiences in life.

By simply writing down your thoughts and feelings it helps process emotions in a positive way and creates an opportunity for self-dialogue and creates a meaningful connection with yourself.

If you struggle with stress, depression, or anxiety, keeping a journal can be a great idea. It can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health. One of the ways to deal with any overwhelming emotion is to find a healthy way to express yourself without any judgment or rules.

Learning how to keep a diary or journal might seem daunting, but it is quite simple to get started. The way you journal can be completely unique to you, there is no ‘right’ way, draw, write poetry or maybe just bullet points, there are no rules.
