Our emotions and memories are encoded and stored in our bodies in such a way that often times the only means of bringing the information to the surface for clues and resolution is through some form of imaginative expression such as Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Writing/Journaling or even Scrapbooking.  

Creative therapies can play a major role in revealing our inner most thoughts and emotions and can benefit us with all types of health problems. 

Most people don't think of keeping journals until they are faced with a major crisis in their life, such as separation or divorce, illness, or death of a loved one.  It's usually during time of crisis when we feel compelled to do a little soul-searching as we work through our feelings of pain, loss, grief, anger, or confusion.

Stress, worry, depression and anxiety have an enormous impact on our health and are implicated in a number of conditions such as migraine, asthma, digestive disorders, headaches and more.

In a therapeutic sense, keeping a journal or a scrapbook allows the mind-body to heal itself by restoring internal harmony.  Journaling and/or scrapbooking is a very pleasurable way for us to set aside time to relax and release mental and physical tension while at the same time preserve our photos and memorabilia to pass on to future generations.

I journal the way I do most things, as I am moved too Smile

When there is something which comes up for me that I need to sort through, I journal.

Perhaps that would be choice E. As the spirit moves me ...LOL

I used to be an avid journal keeper, but then life got in the way. Now, like you, I journal whenever I feel inspired to. Sometimes it's in the form of posts on the forum... sometimes in my journals.... but always I seem to write for public consumption. But... I don't know. More and more I'm getting to the point where I don't care what people read in my journals because they're not supposed to be reading them anyway.
