I agree, it's an excellent time to get a journal going. I write 3 8x11 pages almost every day and have done it now for just over 7 years (I have quite the catalogue) and it gets your mental trash out on paper. It helps to clear your mind because you release it via your fingertips. Typing it doesn't work, it should be longhand.
I got started doing this by doing Julia Cameron's The Artists Way. I just kept at it and think it's great therapy. I recommend getting the book and working through it, it's an excellent way to get in touch with why you think the way you do. It really helped change my life.
