Writing in a journal every day takes discipline. There is no better way to learn the nuts and bolts of good writing, however. Daily journal writing not only helps you unwind and figure out your feelings, it also gives you that practice time needed to become a skilled writer. So how do you start this habit of daily journaling?
Daily journal writing can be an excellent tool of self-expression and self-discovery for preteens and teens (actually for kids of all ages!). Journal writing helps them to process the myriad of thoughts, feelings, and emotions they experience and becomes an invaluable tool for understanding their many life experiences. It is also an excellent form of creative self-expression.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by complicated or confusing emotions? In order to increase your self-awareness and gain an understanding of why it is you feel the way you do, or react in certain ways, journaling could be the answer for you. Through journaling, you can expand self-awareness by identifying and expressing your feelings in writing.
