Here’s a quick fact: humans never stop learning. Even when you’re long done with formal schooling, there are massive amounts of information that comes your way from pretty much every direction—the news, social media, our emails, and even your friends. With so many things running through your head like everything is on fire, it can be really difficult to focus. Your brain is practically crying for an outlet to unload everything—there’s only so much you can remember!
This is why writing things down regularly—or journaling—can be extremely beneficial to you and your health. Not only will you give your brain a break from trying to contain and process everything you’ve encountered, but you’ll get to permanently record it in your favorite notebook! It’ll also give you something fun to read a few years down the road.
Some things are easier said than done—and others are easier written rather than expressed verbally. Starting a couples journal with your significant other can serve many purposes when it comes to enhancing your relationship. Sometimes, you may be too nervous or embarrassed to tell them your thoughts out loud, and other times, you might just be feeling sentimental. Here are some of the ways you can use a relationship journal.
