You may be surprised to learn that a journal can actually help you to maintain your wellness. The benefits of journaling are numerous - from easing stress to sparking self-discovery. When it comes to improving your mental and physical well-being, recording your thoughts and feelings matters, whether you're a chronically stressed-out out-of-town workaholic or a laid-back beach bum.
Here are 5 other wide-ranging benefits of journaling:
1. Gain self-confidence
Seeing your progress can also boost your confidence. Looking back at the challenges you faced and seeing how far you've come can make you feel proud.
2. Reduce stress and anxiety
It is common for negative thoughts and emotions to run on a loop in our heads. When you are facing a challenging situation, this can be stressful - it can even worsen your current situation. But if you stop and put your emotions down on paper, it can help you release negative thoughts from your mind. Writing may even help you come up with a solution you didn't know existed.
3. Keep track of progress and growth
The more regularly you keep a journal, the more you'll be able to see your progress or growth.
4. Achieve goals
Your journal can help you keep track of your intentions when you write them down. This will serve as a reminder of what you need to accomplish and help you stay accountable. Don't forget to be specific.
5. Keeping a journal is a good way to process emotions
Keeping a journal allows you to process your emotions safely. The more specific emotions you name and accept, the less powerful they become. This makes dealing with difficult emotions easier.
Journaling is a great way to get honest with yourself, discover what you need from life and become more aware of your own needs and wants.
