Journaling is simply writing down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly. If you struggle with stress, depression, or anxiety, keeping a journal can be a great idea. It can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health. 

A journal can act as a time capsule you can look back on in months or years to come and writing in it regularly may improve your memory. Having a paper journal can reduce screen time too, and give your eyes and brain a break from the info you are bombarded with every day that may affect your mental health.
