The Power of Journaling


Everyone is fighting a battle. Often these issues are hard to talk about or when you talk to someone about them it doesn’t help at all and you just end up feeling worse. 

I have recently started journaling my thoughts (in a cute notebook of course to make it more fun). I have found it very helpful in getting worries off my mind. Worrying is counterproductive usually when we worry we’ve already done all we can to help the situation and there is nothing more we can do in this exact present moment so it really doesn’t help to dwell, if anything it wastes energy (which we lack to begin with anyway). 

I find writing things down helps, as it clears it off my mind. I was surprised how much it has actually helped me! After writing in the journal, it is like the mind says ‘okay you’ve dealt with this issue as much as you can for now. Now you can get on with what you need to do’. 

I don’t write in it everyday just whenever I need to or want to – so its no pressure. However, I now write a in a success journal everyday – I totally recommend trying this out. This helps me to focus on the good in every day, even if it is just eating breakfast, having a shower or something big like hanging out with people and going for an adventure. 

I was never a big writer but whenever I do it, its like the words just come rushing out of me onto the paper.  I just wanted to share this because I have found it helps and hopefully will help someone else too.

Let me know if you journal or decide to start, I have found it really helpful and I hope you do too.

  1. I used to journal as a teen, but then became too busy… I should really take it up again, I loved the feeling of being able to "let go" of my worries. Thanks for the reminder and good luck with your journalling!

  5. I have this sort of a journal too. I don't write in it every single day, I only use it when I feel too emotional, either angry, hurt, sad or very happy. It does help me a lot and makes me see things from other perspective 🙂

  7. This is such a great idea! My husband has a worries wall in his classroom. Kids can write their worries on a post it note and stick it to the wall, leaving it there during the lesson. They seem to respond really well to physically writing down and leaving the post it note. You've inspired me to create a page in my bullet journal to offload my worries to help me process them. Xx
