Journaling Toward Mental Health

I recently found an article on Amy Pohler’s Smart Girls website about journaling and I thought it would be great to share here.

HNCK4555One of the things I really liked about the article was this:

According to a post on PsychCenteral, University of Texas at Austin psychologist and researcher James Pennebaker believes that, “Writing about stressful events helps you come to terms with them, thus reducing the impact of these stressors on your physical health.” A study from BJPsych Advances also found that expressive writing had a powerful impact on both the mind and body, linking journaling to “improved immune system functioning” and  “improved working memory,” among other beneficial things.

Do you think keeping a journal could help your adolescent?
