Studies have shown that journaling can change your mind, your habits and your life. Journaling (or keeping letters or diaries) is an ancient tradition, one that dates back to at least 10th century Japan. Scientific evidence supports that the act of writing accesses your left brain, which is analytical and rational. While your left brain is occupied, your right brain is free to create, intuit and feel. Journaling also allows you to track patterns, trends and improvements and growth over time.
Begin journaling today to clarify your thoughts and feelings, know yourself better, reduce stress, and solve problems more effectively. Forget spelling and punctuation - it's your journal so there are no rules. Just write from the heart; it could be the cheapest therapy you will ever get.
