Be it burnout from work, mood swings because of hormonal challenges, triggers at home or anxiety because of relationships—there is a need of healthy coping mechanisms to avoid being overwhelmed. “No matter what you are going through in your everyday life, journaling has proven to be very effective to cope with everyday challenges and stressors and also has a positive effect on mental health,” says Meghna Karia, senior psychologist and outreach associate at Mpower.
