Writing a diary at any period of life is always a very useful tool to reflect and keep track of our thoughts and details that are important to each of us and that we do not want to forget.
In stressful times such as the period of socially distancing and self-quarantine caused by the coronavirus pandemic, writing and journaling also becomes a very powerful tool to help us work through emotions and care for our mental health.
Sitting at home watching Netflix may not feel like you’re doing much, but you’re actually living through a major historical event that people will learn and talk about for generations after this is all over. Writing a journal will help you not just preserve your memories but will also help you process your feelings about this time.
We are living through a historic time, and by journaling, you can preserve a first-hand account of it.
