We know sometimes you feel as though you’re stuck in an endless loop where every day feels the same and on the other, the months move especially quickly and you’re confronted with questions about the uncertain future. Journaling evokes mindfulness and helps writers remain present while keeping perspective. It presents an opportunity for emotional catharsis and helps the brain regulate emotions. It provides a greater sense of confidence and self-identity while we dig deeper into our goals of breastfeeding, of recovering from our loss, or just wanting to write the happiness we want to bring to our love ones. 

Even if you never re-read what you've written, the simple act of writing something down increases brain development and memory. Neurologically, when you listen to something, a different part of your brain is engaged than when you write it down.
