Power of journaling

by

Many people journal to pass the time, relax or keep a log of their accomplishments, but did you know that it can benefit your mental and even physical health?

Writing has been linked to increased diligence, memory and communication skills, while studies by the American Psychological Association show that expressive writing can provide physical benefits to patients suffering from terminal or life-threatening illnesses, such as HIV/AIDS, arthritis and asthma.

According to psychologists Dr. James Pennebaker and Dr. Joshua Smith, to experience the healing power of writing, one must use it to better interpret and learn from their emotions.
