Thinking constantly does nobody any good. Keeping things piled up inside your head can lead to some pretty messy and organized thoughts.
Half the time, it can be difficult to keep track of your train of thought.
Journaling helps massively with clearing up space in your mind. By putting your thoughts down on paper, not only can you now visualize your mind, but you free up space for something better.
It can help you remember things that you ideally wouldn’t if you just pushed it into the back of your mind.
Journaling doesn’t have any rules. As long as you feel free and like a weight is off your mind, then you’re doing it right.
