"In its therapeutic meaning, expressive writing involves telling a 'story' about traumatic, emotionally charged, or stressful events and personal reactions...expressive writing is useful in disclosing and processing emotions, and in measurably improving physical and mental health" (Horowitz, 2010).I'm glad blogging is more than a time-consuming hobby. Hooray for improving my physical and mental health, and hooray for my happy, rabbit-eating boy!
