Since I was a kid I have always loved to write. I had everything from the diary to the calligraphy pens. I loved that I could change the style of my writing and I could write about anything that I wanted. I had full control of the words, fonts and style of writing without explanation.
Journaling is a great self healing technique that allows you to release feelings,good, bad and/or indifferent, that have been pent up inside. The great thing is that there is no right or wrong way to journal. You can write words, draw, or whatever you need to express yourself. Journaling has become an universal way of helping people to change their behaviors. With writing things down being a proven way to remember and tackles goals, I don’t understand why more people haven’t started writing more. It seems, the more we write the better we become. Here are 4 benefits of journaling that everyone can use.
