Journaling can be an excellent way to increase self-awareness, discover and change habits.”

I find the act of writing my thoughts out both frightening and healing. I am appalled at what is shackled in the depths of my heart, but I sense a release when it transfers from this inner depth of me to the page beneath my pen.

Over the last four decades hundreds of papers have demonstrated the power of writing for a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, chronic pain, trauma, etc.
Thousands of people throughout the world have taken this research on board or discovered for themselves the huge benefits that can come from having either a regular routine for writing or even just from a single session.
Currently there are a variety of options that can help with journaling and everyone has their favorites. For some it is a physical paper journal, for others it is the more secure environment of a computer file, and for others it is one of the online journaling tools.
Our aim, as writers ourselves, is to create a tool specifically designed to assist with journaling and expressive writing.
