You don’t have to know what to write to journal. That’s kind of the point. Articulating a stream of consciousness can do wonders. Just set a timer for 5 minutes and don’t stop writing — that’s literally all it takes. Even scribbles are a form of writing. There’s no pressure to write inside the lines, but if you prefer a more structured experience, start with listing these three things: something good that happened (a rose), something upsetting that happened (a thorn) and something you’re looking forward to (a bud).
