Journaling requires the application of the analytical, rational left side of the brain; then while your left hemisphere is occupied, your right hemisphere (the creative side) is given the freedom to wander and play. 🧠
Journaling has been found to:
Boost your mood/affect.
Enhance your sense of well-being.
Reduce symptoms of anxiety before an important event (like an exam).
Improve your working memory.
There is no "correct” method to journal. Write in any way you feel comfortable – on paper, on your computer, even jotting notes on your phone. I recommend writing every day, if possible, for 20 minutes. Write quickly, write what feels right, and don't stress over grammar, spelling, or punctuation.
