The Top 11 Scientifically-Proven Benefits of Writing and Journaling

Writing down one’s disquieting thoughts in a journal which one never wants to share with anyone has a cathartic effect. Plus, most people have a tendency to express their inner thoughts better in written words than in verbal ones.
