Article Summary:

“When you think of “journaling,” you might picture a tween girl, laying on her bed with her feet waving lazily through the air and writing about her crush in a diary.

The word often has that connotation for adults: the sense that it’s for young people who are trying to figure out who they are and deal with raging hormones and middle school drama.

While it can certainly be helpful for those purposes, journaling is not exclusively for “girls,” teens, and tweens—it’s for anyone who can write! It is a form of self-expression that can lift and empower people to understand they’re complex feelings and find humor with it.

Simply putting words on a page will probably not get you all the benefits of journaling, but effective journaling can result in many positive outcomes and improvements to your quality of life.”
