Starting a journaling practice
Journaling is not only for the young. Therapists, counselors, teachers, and psychologists recommend journaling to heal and recover from traumatic events. The power of writing your thoughts on paper can have the same benefits as talking to a close friend. Simply admitting your mistakes, writing about painful conversations, and recording experiences can take a weight off. Journaling, combined with regular talking sessions is known to lower stress and improve overall happiness. Journaling is a wonderful way to define and reach your goals. Writing down your goals makes you accountable. Seeing goals in print can have a powerful effect as you turn your dreams into an action plan.
I love going through old journals to see what I struggled with and what my goals were. I delight in knowing I succeeded over the years. I also enjoy noticing how my dreams have evolved. What was once important to me has shifted to another dream. I can piece together connections that show me how one step led to the next.
When suffering from depression or anxiety, journaling your daily moods can be a way to acknowledge them. Sometimes simply admitting that we feel agitated or sad can cause a change in our outlook. “Hello sadness, I’m done with you. Thank you for coming but our visit is over now.” By writing down our daily mood, we can see a pattern over time. This may be an effective form of therapy when working with a therapist.

When experiencing anxiety, journaling can help you to release the specific emotions you are feeling. Write down every worry you are having in a given moment. When seeing your fears written, it may be easier to pinpoint your triggers as well as helping you put things into perspective. Worries and fears are not rational. When people are having an emotional reaction, they need to release all of those feelings before they can move through them. Journaling can help move a person through the process instead of stuffing feelings down deep.
