Journaling for youth
. Gratitude . self discovery . empowerment .
Writing is a great way to express our feelings in a meaningful way while exploring who we are and sparking creativity. Keeping a journal is a wonderful way to record our ideas through writing, drawing and collage.
Journaling is a great way to express ourselves while helping to better understand our feelings. It can help clear out our mind "clutter," while allowing us to feel relaxed and calm. In a sense, it transfers our thoughts and feelings from our busy minds, onto paper.
There are many ways to use a journal and there is no right or wrong way to do it. While some people may wish to just start writing whatever is on their mind others may rather have a theme or topic they are writing about.
You can use your journal like a diary and write whatever is on your mind at the time, you could write a story or a poem, create a collage or piece of art or use your journal like a sketch book and doodle!
The Possibilities are endless! Remember... It is just for you...
