Believe it or not, I've been journaling since I was small and began filling my mind with dreams and ideas of where I wanted to go and what I wanted to accomplish. And when you think about it, journaling allows you to have a moment to yourself to reflect on how your day went, how you want it to go tomorrow and where you want to be in the future. It also allows you to air any grievances so you can reconcile your emotions and store those feelings or negativity in a place outside of yourself in order to approach activities with positivity and with a fresh perspective.
You're never the right or wrong age to journal. It's a health activity to provide calmness and to build a better relationship with yourself. The more you understand who you are and can reflect on your behavior, whether its good or bad, the more you can improve how you interact with others. Or better yet the more you can plan out your goals while I'll also learning to accept any failures or challenges you might experience along the way.
