Keeping a diary, or journaling (as we refer to it post-puberty), can feel like the territory of pimply, hormonal teenagers crazed with fantasies about their first crush or grappling with their own quest for self-identity.
Believe it or not though, some of the world’s greatest leaders were and are regular journal-keepers, and chances are that Winston Churchill didn’t and Barack Obama doesn’t merely record their brushes with love or musings on the popular clique.
If they did, however, it would be okay. After all, that’s the beauty of keeping a journal: there’s no wrong way to do it. And, of course, there are these ten other awesome benefits that will genuinely improve your life.
