Journal For Your Mental Health – Sixteen Miles Out

Journaling can be a great way to improve your mental health. It can help you to:

  • Unclutter your mind and reduce stress
  • Process difficult emotions
  • Track your progress and goals
  • Reflect on your life and make positive changes

When journaling, it is important, to be honest with yourself and to write about whatever is on your mind. You may want to write about your thoughts, feelings, experiences, or goals. You can also use journaling to brainstorm ideas, plan for the future, or simply relax and de-stress.

There are many different ways to journal. You can write in a traditional journal, or you can use a blog, an online journal, or even a voice memo app. There is no right or wrong way to journal, so find what works best for you.

If you are new to journaling, it can be helpful to start with a few prompts. Here are a few ideas:

  • What are you grateful for today?
  • What is one thing you are proud of yourself for?
  • What is one thing you are looking forward to?
  • What is one thing you are worried about?
  • What is one thing you want to change about your life?

Once you get started, you may find that journaling becomes a regular part of your routine. It can be a great way to connect with yourself and improve your mental health.

Here are some additional tips for journaling:

  • Find a quiet place where you can write without distractions.
  • Set aside some time each day to journal, even if it is just for a few minutes.
  • Don’t worry about grammar or spelling. Just write whatever comes to mind.
  • If you get stuck, try writing about something that is bothering you or something that you are grateful for.
  • Reread your journal entries from time to time to see how you have grown and changed.
  • Journaling can be a great way to process your thoughts and feelings, so don’t be afraid, to be honest with yourself.

If you find that journaling is not helpful for you, there are other things you can do to improve your mental health. Talk to a coach, counselor, or therapist, join a support group, or try other relaxation techniques such as yoga or meditation.

Teal Journal Writing

One of the best ways to relieve stress and process emotional issues is actually free, easy,-and it’s something you learned how to do in grade school. We’re talking about journaling.

The simple act of describing oneโ€™s feelings helps people to clear their minds, makes them less anxious, and makes them happier. So to make 2020 the year you pick up a journal again, here’s what you need to start.


Find Your Journaling Routine

When it comes to creating a self-care ritual you’ll actually stick with, establishing a routine is key.ย 

*Have a specific set time of day

*A place where you writeย 

It’s about creating the rituals that work for you-there really is no wrong way to do this. There’s no bad, there’s just do. You have to be your own scientist and try to experiment with what works for you.

Focus on Feelings

When researchers talk about the benefits of writing for stress relief, they’re actually talking about something called “expressive writing,โ€ putting down on paper positive or negative life experiences, rather than creating stories. Expressive writing is aimed at trying to understand and come to terms with difficult events in your life. Creative writing, in my mind, is playing with new ideas. While beginning to write may very well get your creative juices flowing, for maximum health benefits, focus your journal on events in your own life and explore your feelings around those events.

Carve Out 15-20 minutes

Simply write for 15-20 minutes to get a handle on the event, and your reactions to it. If trying to understand the stressful event isn’t helpful, you can work to look for some positive features of the event, or something positive that may come from it – There are lessons in everything we go through in life. I would also recommend using a timer to provide some structure to your free-writing.

Try a Prompt

Some people find it easier to begin writing when they are given a prompt that directs them to a topic, like writing assignments in high school when the teacher asked the class to describe their happiest or saddest childhood memories. I will sometimes use prompts to get my creative juices flowing, you can find plenty of websites dedicated to writing prompts.

Peace Harmony & Happy Journaling!
