It’s good for your mind and body.
Posted September 18, 2017

Scientists have long agreed that writing down your thoughts and experiences is good for you. It may sound crazy, but it’s true. In fact, Scientific American says the physiological benefits are many and in some cases healing:

Researchers studied individuals who engaged in expressive writing before having a minor surgical procedure. Eleven days after the procedure, “76% of the group that did expressive writing had fully healed as compared with 42% of the control group.”1
