There are many benefits to the practice of journaling such as:
Clarifying your thoughts and feelings
Reducing your stress
Tracking your patterns of behaviour, thinking and feeling
Promoting your mental, physical, spiritual and emotional well-being
The benefits to keeping a journal are expansive and can be specialized to the type of journal you keep. At WYN we want to promote mental, physical, spiritual and emotional well-being. We encourage you to tailor your journaling practices to your own needs and goals, whether that be tracking your gratitude, your dreams, or inspired travel plans.
We have provided journal templates to help you get started; Dear Willow Q&A where you can ask questions to our mentors and get advice; and a forum to give you a platform to share and inspire each other.
WHAT IS DEAR WILLOW?
We are supporting your well-being and promoting our mental health initiative by launching Dear Willow! Dear willow is an anonymous forum where you can spontaneously ask us questions about anything you want and receive answers from the mentors on our team.
Even if you aren’t ready to ask your own questions, you can read about issues that other young people in your community are facing and benefit from our suggestions.
