Writing is the best way to talk without being interrupted ✎~Jules Renald
When you were a teenager, you might have kept a diary hidden under your mattress. It was a place to confess your struggles and fears without judgment or punishment. It likely felt good to get all of those thoughts and feelings out of your head and down on paper. The world seemed clearer.
You may have stopped using a diary once you reached adulthood. But the concept and its benefits still apply. Now it’s called journaling. It’s simply writing down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly. And if you struggle with stress, depression, or anxiety, keeping a journal is a great idea. It can help you gain control of your emotions and improve your mental health.
Are there people among me who still write something down to their notebooks and use handwriting？
I am one of those who likes to write down some tips by hand or even pour out my feelings, thoughts, emotions on a sheet of paper.
Why I am doing this？
It’s not a secret that writing is one of the therapy forms. What does this mean？ This means that in times of crisis, depression, or other stressful situations, writing helps to overcome pain and reduce sadness or anger, even other emotions or feelings. 🙌
I usually write when I have hard times or feel stressed, and the writing is varied: from a letter to myself, a letter to an inner child, a letter to parents, a loved one, a letter of thanks, love, and affection. letter of support – depends on feeling. It is best when we do not think about writing, but simply sincerely and openly pour out the feelings, emotions, thoughts and state we feel. 🙏
It really helps to calm the mind, deal with suddenly overhelmed emotions and get back to yourself, also to look at the situation differently 🌍
✔️Did you know that:
- Writing therapy helps release “steam” to vent tension and anger.
- The written thought takes shape.
- By writing your feelings, thoughts, you get closer to yourself.
- Manages anxiety.
- Reduces stress.
- Copes with depression.
- Writing therapy promotes gratitude and a brighter outlook on life.
If you feel emotional sometimes just try to write everything down, I believe this will reduce your pain. You don’t need to be a prolific writer, or even a writer at all, to benefit from writing therapy. All you need is a piece of paper, a pen, and the motivation to write 😊
Keeping a journal helps you create order when your world feels like it’s in chaos. You get to know yourself by revealing your most private fears, thoughts, and feelings. Look at your writing time as personal relaxation time. It’s a time when you can de-stress and wind down. Write in a place that’s relaxing and soothing, maybe with a cup of tea☕️. Look forward to your journaling time. And know that you’re doing something good for your mind and body.
