Benefits of Journaling

Unleash the Inner You

Journaling can be one of the greatest meditative, therapeutic, and revealing things one will undertake in life. You may find you are not who you really thought you were and decide to live the life you always wanted, all because you take the time to write broken scattered thoughts that may reveal a pattern to yourself. Yes, you may discover the inner you.

Journaling gives you a way to process your thoughts. When you take the time to write them down, you may see patterns that are not clear most of the time. You may find that you are a really caring, kind, concerned person even if you appear brash to people. Maybe there are things in life that have hardened you and you are not really aware of them having so substantially affected you and your personality.

Journaling is a good way to uncover yourself, as it is your primary private look at yourself. You can record the Good, the bad, and the Ugly yourself and change what you don’t like, come to terms with what you cannot change, and accept what you are really about even if it is a little nasty.

Journaling is a super great way to analyze yourself, your emotions and your feelings towards life events, other people and their reactions towards your attitudes whether good or bad. You can temper yourself from this and become a whole new you based on your self study. This will help you find your place in life for yourself, because of yourself. This will increase positive flow of energy and unleash the inner you.

Positive Mental Health

Journaling can positively affect your mental health for many reasons. If you have mental health issues, it can be a great way to track moods in detail so you can reflect at a future point or predict slides becoming critical and nip them in the bud. It’s a good way to free your thoughts and concretize them so you can think freer and not worry about forgetting what you think is important at the time, whether it is or isn’t.

You can delve deep into your feelings and emotions and have a safe place to do so where you can feel judgment free to express yourself whether others see it as absurd, selfish, or otherwise negatively lighted. This allows you to identify a theme to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours and take appropriate actions for yourself in your own life.

You can act on your emotions, feelings, and problems safely by imagining what you would do in any given situation you may encounter in life. You can replay an unpleasant scene that you have undertaken and learn from where you went wrong, or reassure yourself that you did what you had to do. Either way, you will be miles ahead of yourself just for the extra effort of having written it out.

If you happen to have racing thoughts, pour them out on to paper, or a ‘puter as may modern journalers do. You will find your thoughts slow down as you spill it out… Your mood elevates and you lose depression for having another panic attack averted just by writing down all the dribble that won’t stop messing you up.
