The Science behind Journaling and Mental Health
Journaling allows you to HEAR your inner thoughts through words. You may have words that are stuck behind feelings, and you can’t access them. You are in your own way. Allowing yourself to SEE your feelings by writing them down will allow you to begin to deal with them.
