Journaling is one of the most popular self-care practices, and for good reason. It's low-pressure, easy to do, and can be one of the most therapeutic things you can do for yourself. Set yourself up for success by making this process as enjoyable and easy as possible. If you are struggling with a blank page and are not sure where to start, try using a writing prompt as a jumping off point. Pinterest is a great place to look for ideas:) I like to set a timer for 10 minutes and write fast for the entire time.
If you want to create and maintain a regular journaling habit, try writing a little every day. Although there are many ways to journal, and there is no right or wrong, it can feel a bit like a big deal when you're new. Celebrate your gains, no matter how small, and consider where you can improve. Research shows that journaling can help you achieve your goals, boost your emotional intelligence, boost your self-confidence, and even heal difficult experiences.
