If you enjoy journaling, you’ve probably noticed a few benefits that come along with it. Writing can help clarify one’s thoughts and feelings, understand one’s problems, and reduce stress. Sometimes, though, journaling can get into a rut when you feel like you’re writing about the same ol’ stuff all the time.
