As a teacher, I encourage my students to keep a journal. They write about daily activities and record the dates for each entry. This helps students practice writing and self expression. It doesn’t matter which topics are written about; the most important thing is that a person writes consistently, perhaps even daily, about anything. Writing helps to exercise the mind.
