Journaling for Mental Health

I knew it. I mean, I knew it because I’ve experienced this, but there is a wealth of scientific research supporting how much journaling can help you. And that’s just if you’re left to your own devices writing your thoughts down. Imagine the power if that journaling was a guided experience. The results on your self-esteem are EPIC!

where they say:

Journaling can help you:

  • Manage anxiety
  • Reduce stress
  • Cope with depression

Journaling helps control your symptoms and improve your mood by:

  • Helping you prioritize problems, fears, and concerns
  • Tracking any symptoms day-to-day so that you can recognize triggers and learn ways to better control them
  • Providing an opportunity for positive self-talk and identifying negative thoughts and behaviors

That says it all. Time to get your own journaling journey underway.
