I’ve been journalling over the last few years, it started as fitness goals and how I was going with working out but it soon became a part of my daily routine to keep my feelings, frustrations and behaviour in check.
Here are the benefits of journalling that have improved my mental health:
- Journaling will allow you to process and make sense on how you’re feeling in given situations that pose threat or difficulty. For example, if you’re annoyed at a loved one for their actions towards you and you can’t figure out why.
- Journaling allows you to have a place to pour your emotions into that isn’t a person you love. Annoyed and frustrated by dumb people? journal it. Sad about something? Journal it.
- Journaling acts as a weight reliever; writing it down takes away the weight of your feelings and puts them into something constructive and positive.
- Journaling helps you to move forward by looking back at all you’ve overcome through written expression.
- Journaling enforces healthy mindfulness by helping you check in with yourself mentally and emotionally.
- Journaling helps you solve problems better because you’re writing them out logically.
Are you interested in how to start journaling after reading the benefits? It’s easy, grab yourself a plank book and a pen. Date the corner and get to it. It’s that simple.
