ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Visual Journaling (Art Journaling/Creative Journaling/Art Diary) has been around for years and is an activity that can help us be more creative, aid in working through issues or promote happiness by having a fun and expressing ourselves. Visual journaling is often rooted in art therapy to work through trauma, loss and as a tool for stress reduction, however, it can also be utilized to express joy, create a memory and/or memorialize something special. Creativity is cathartic.
