If you are currently experiencing anxiety or depression, you may be looking for simple ways to help you manage and better understand the various emotions you’re be feeling. Although everyone’s experience is different, some professional therapists recommend journaling as an additional way to process and cope with your feelings. If you’re interested in journaling to help with your anxiety or depression, we spoke to licensed professionals on how to get started. Please keep in mind that journaling is not meant to replace any treatments you are currently partaking in, and instead is an additional way to potentially help improve your mental health.
