Benefits of Journaling


I was one of those people who did not believe in the power of journaling – until I tried it. I used to think that it was quite ‘over-rated’. After all, how can simply writing your feelings down on paper make you feel better? It’s not like it can solve your problems, right?

Well, journaling might not be able to solve all of your problems, but it can definitely give you the clarity you need to be able to solve your problems on your own. And that is just one of the benefits. Journaling has the power to change your mindset and your life – if you commit to doing it regularly. And how does it do that? Keep on reading to find that out!

>> It helps you to connect with yourself

Life can be hard at times and no matter how much we want to, things don’t always go according to the way we plan. This can invite feelings of worthlessness and even a disconnection with one’s own self. The truth is, we have the power in us to change our lives and our worth can’t be measured. However, it’s easy to forget this when we’re in a middle of a challenge. Writing down your feelings and being as honest as you can with yourself, can definitely help you lighten the load on your chest and feel better.

>> It helps you to depend on yourself

Imagine having a friend that you can call at any time, without thinking twice and knowing that that friend will listen patiently to everything that you have to say. Feels amazing, right? Well, journaling helps you realize that you can be that friend to yourself. It’s a huge blessing to have people in life who love you. But what helps us receive that love fully is the acceptance of the fact that we’re worthy of it. And that comes from a feeling of connection and trust with your own self. The more you take out time to be there for yourself, the more you can trust and depend on yourself.

>> It helps you make better choices.

Self care is an umbrella term for all those things you can do to make yourself feel loved and cared for. Journaling, as a self-care practice, allows you to learn to be kind to yourself. The honesty that you display when you write your feelings down not only makes you feel better, but it also helps you recognize what triggers you and what calms you down. This realization is very important because it helps you make better choices and helps you realize what, in fact, is truly important to you.

These are just 3 of the benefits that come from making journaling a part of your daily life. More than anything, journaling helps you know yourself better. That, in return, helps you lead a better life. When times overwhelm you, remember that you’re not alone and that help is just a call away.
