Is journaling for you? It can be. You do not need an excuse or reason to journal, you just need to want to. Journaling can help you feel healthier and less stressed. Journaling can also be therapeutic or a way to bring your thoughts into order. Choosing to journal is a decision that a person can make for themselves and take for as long as they feel they need it. It may be for a day, a month, or an entire lifetime.
