How does journaling help manage mental health?

Journaling is the practice of writing down personal reflections on any topic, theme, or idea.

The journaling process is significant: sitting down, giving yourself time, and trying to be as open and honest as possible.

Here’s how it helps manage your mental health:

1. A safe space to be yourself

Journaling is like venting to a friend—but with fewer interruptions.

2. A quiet space for reflection

Instead of instantly sharing your thoughts on social media, journaling gives you a space to take a step back and make sense of it all.

3.  A record of the good

Journaling isn’t always about working out your negative emotions. You can also use your journal to document positive events in your life.
