Journaling has become a great way to relieve the fogginess I sometimes get in my head when I have a lot on my plate. Sometimes I want to discuss things or vent, but I don't want to share these feelings with other people. So I take it to pen and paper in my journal. Reflecting on these questions can help you develop a deeper sense of self-love and create a more positive and nurturing relationship with yourself.
