There are many benefits to start journaling as a self-care habit. You can read some of the benefits here. But, one of the most significant obstacles of being able to write a journal is, when you sit down to write, your mind tends to go blank (Mind gets confused, I am sure because when I try to meditate, it starts overthinking)
A great way to give a jump start to your thoughts and emotions, you can take a little help of #journalingprompts. Once you start using these prompts, you will see that finding your thoughts in that maze of a brain becomes easy, and your emotions find a way towards you.
I would recommend you to start answering these in small bites, maybe 4-5 at a time. You can bookmark them and visit them later as well.
