(Emmons & McCullough, 2003).  For example: Journal writing can assist you in dealing with intense emotions, improving your problem-solving skills, and reducing feelings of anxiety. Emmons, R. A., & McCullough, M. E. (2003). Counting Blessings Versus Burdens: An Experimental Investigation of Gratitude and Subjective Well-Being in Daily Life. Journal of Personality & Social Psychology, 84(2), 377 – 389.
