Can you believe it’s the last week of Summer??? The first day of Fall is just a week away – the last three months have absolutely flown by!
Journals And Journaling
Keeping journals and journaling frequently has many benefits. For example, some of these benefits are therapeutic. Documenting thoughts, dreams, and other ambitions can help you realize your potential. The written word has a way of contributing to our mental health. Did you know that it can help you overcome writer’s block? It absolutely can. Stream of consciousness writing brings out thoughts and ideas you never knew you had. In addition, it can increase your I.Q. and boost your memory and comprehension. Likewise, keeping journals and journaling will often improve your communication skills. Studies have also shown that the emotional release from journaling lowers anxiety, stress, and induces better sleep.
