New Year Resolutions – Keep a Journal

In 1998, the Journal of Instructional Psychology published a study about journal writing and how it is able to improve students’ performance in class and lower testing anxieties and psychological reactions.  This is one of the reasons why keeping a journal has become one of the top New Year Resolutions of the 20th century.

Journals help you:

Writing is powerful. When you express your thoughts in writing it naturally enables you to think deeply about topics that are important to you.
