Writ­ing thoughts and feel­ings down in a jour­nal builds bridges to self-un­der­stand­ing, in­ner strength and mind-body aware­ness. Through the years, fa­mous artists and pub­lic fig­ures have used jour­nals to re­flect on their pri­vate lives and record his­toric events. The ther­a­peu­tic po­ten­tial of re­flec­tive writ­ing though only came into pub­lic aware­ness in the 1960s, when psy­chol­o­gist Dr Ira Pro­goff, be­gan of­fer­ing work­shops on his In­ten­sive Jour­nal method, fol­lowed by the pub­li­ca­tion of his book At a Jour­nal Work­shop. In re­cent years, due to ex­ten­sive re­search, med­i­cal and ther­a­peu­tic com­mu­ni­ties have be­gun util­is­ing jour­nal writ­ing as a holis­tic non-medic­i­nal method for well­ness. Here, we look at seven types of jour­nals that can trans­form nearly ev­ery area of our lives and how to get started.
