As the old saying goes, practice makes perfect. This is especially true when it comes to writing, an activity that many young students find intimidating, tedious or just plain difficult. However, developing strong written communication skills is a vital component of your overall success in primary school, high school and university (as well as in the adult workplace).
This is a skill that is important for you to have. In many ways it can help you say the things you want to say, which makes it an excellent way to communicate your feelings or just simply get things off your mind.
It can also be a fun activity you do to relax. By creating a journal you are allowing yourself to be as creative as you want to be. There is no right and wrong. You are able to express your inner thoughts in any way you desire to.
All that's left for you to do is to get started and make it a habit by including it in your daily or weekly timetable depending on how much time you have to spare for relaxing.
