I have a journal I write in occasionally. I tend to use it in my worst moments because I like to look back later and see how far I've come.My advice to anyone who wants to keep a journal is to not force yourself to write every day. When you try to force yourself to write every day, it makes journal-keeping feel like a chore. You only need to write when you feel like it. Nothing makes writing more off putting than opening the journal and staring at a blank page for a long time.
