Journal Writing Comes Alive At Belle Isle Library

Most of us think of keeping a journal as a means of recording our own personal histories, but there are more benefits than that.

The Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, is presenting a workshop called “Journal Writing For Everyone: Journal to the Self” on Saturday, August 10, at 1:00 p.m.

“The workshop is based on the work of Kathleen Adams, Center for Journal Therapy,” said librarian Ann Meeks. “Using a personal journal can be a useful tool for many reasons, including recording memories and clarifying thoughts. You know how you sometimes get a better grasp of a situation when you write down what you’re thinking? But one thing that people might not be aware of is that writing in a journal can actually reduce stress.”

The session is free and good for both beginners and experienced journal writers, who will pick up some tips and ideas.
