5 Reasons Why Your Journal Is Your Best Friend…

journalling“If we think too long about what we will write rather than simply letting the words flow out; we probably won’t want to journal”.

When you journal:

1. You don’t need to censor yourself. Your journal will not judge you.

2. Your journal will hold your deepest feelings and thoughts in confidence.

3. You can give your feelings and thoughts away to the paper and feel a sense of relief.

4. Your writing can reveal to you meanings that were unclear until you put them down on paper.

5. Journaling is a wonderful way to keep a record of your experiences and to see your personal growth.
