Journaling helps to get rid of thoughts, or remember ideas. Sometimes it's good to write these thoughts and feelings down, either as a way of getting them out of your system or jotting down ideas in order to remember them.

It doesn't always have to be a journal - it can be just jotting down thoughts, or maybe poetry.

Any form or writing appears as being a healthy coping mechanism and is a great way of sustaining your mental health.

So, if you're stressed. Writing down how you feel will be beneficial. Whether that be in a journal, as poetry or even on your phone. Writing down thoughts can also help to improve your mood.
