A few weeks ago I was honored to be interviewed about the benefits of journaling by writer and life coach Tara Sophia Mohr at Wise Living. Here she blogs about “living more intentionally in order to create a vital, peaceful, joyful life.” I thank Tara for including me in this journey.

Thank you, Tara, it was a pleasure!
P.S. There is one thing I wanted to add to my answer to Tara’s question about why journaling works: When we put our emotions into words we are using a different part of the brain. When we use both sides of the brain we understand and process the event/memory in a way that promotes healing.
“Once [an event] is language-based people can better understand the experience and ultimately put it behind them” — Dr. Pennebaker
