Many times, the blank page induces fear. It’s not always easy to know what to write or how to begin, but we can assure you keeping a journal is a worthy endeavor. As you regularly spend time journaling, you will begin to experience the many associated benefits. Below are 3 of our best tips for conquering writer’s block.

Change Your Scenery
Sometimes the best way to spark creativity is by changing your scenery. Something as simple as venturing outside with your journal could be just what you need to start writing.
