    Do you think that art journalling gives the same benefits as writing? So instead of expressing what happened during the day – you basically just express your feelings in the form of your art

    Journaling often degenerates into merely a recap of how one feels, which, ultimately, achieves neither insight or relief. Are there specific journaling methods that avoid this unproductive pitfall?

    I used to write all the time. I began keeping a journal in elementary school. I guess in my late twenties, I am 40, I stopped. I find keeping a journal makes relive the bad memories too. I try to explain it to people. I feel like this image that pops up in my head, The scary girl from the ring is bent over throwing up word, like ugly word. That is how I feel about writing about unhappy events
