The world is in an uncertain place. With many of us in some form of quarantine, we have been given a measure of time to nurture our spirits. Journaling is one way to do that. Psychologists believe that journaling can reduce depression, improve cognitive function, and bring a measure of calm into our lives. But can journaling aid in our spiritual well-being?
In a word, yes. Terry Hershey, author of a journal called The Gift of Enough, is a big proponent of this activity. Through suggestions for reflection and creative prompts, Hershey encourages readers to pause, to discover the grace of the present moment, and to appreciate the gift of enough.
