Writing to Heal

By Healthweb | January 15, 2014

The wheels of 2014 are rolling along. A New Year gives us all the chance to let go of inefficient life practices, negative emotions and thought processes.

An awareness of what is important to each of us can only be found on the inside.

Journal writing can be an effective way to clear the fog, helping the individual to seek clarity and a positive life direction.

Research by Dr. James Pennebaker, at The University of Texas at Austin and author of “Writing to Heal” shows significant health benefits appear with just 20 minutes of writing over four consecutive days.

Give yourself the time to read about how to start your own journal and writing assignment.
