Journal Writing Benefits

I started journaling over 18 years ago and soon realized the wonderful benefits journal writing can have.  When I started this blog, it was with the intent to share my own experiences and the incredible health benefits I was experiecing through my journal writing practice.

As things have evolved and I've continued to experience the impact journaling can have on overall  health -  including physical, mental, emotional aspects -  the content here has expanded to cover all the ways individuals can benefit from their own journal writing.  

In addition to sharing my own experiences with journaling, this blog now includes guest articles from other writers - including health practitioners, coaches, psychotherapists and others.

Whether you are an exerienced journaler or new to the practice of journal writing, this blog will provide you with many different voices, insights and ideas to inspire your journaling journey.  

In addition to the personal stories of other journalers and contributors, you'll also find journaling writing tips, prompts, videos and more. 

We publish blog articles throughout the week!   So come back often!
