5 steps to boost your mental health through journalling

In case you don’t know already, I am somebody who likes to journal. I have lots of different types of journals which include an affirmation journal, a gratitude journal, my creative journal and my reflections journal.

Journalling is a great way of capturing the essence of life, it’s precious moments and helping us to understand ourselves better.

Like me, you might even see it as an extension of yourself.

It’s a great tool that offers answers, insights and clarity and I find it particularly useful to refer back to, especially if I’ve forgotten how I reached a particular conclusion.

So, I thought that I would share some tips with you here on how to boost your mental health through journalling.

1. Journal daily for best results – consistency is key! By making it a daily habit you are not only creating a consistent self-reflective process and gaining greater self-awareness and personal growth but it helps to create a space to unload, reduce stress and gain clarity. All helping to gain overall improved mental well-being.

2. There is no need for you to create a novel – a few sentences will do. A masterpiece isn’t necessary. Just jotting down a few sentences that capture the essence of your thoughts and experiences will do.

3. Try finding quiet moments to journal when your mind is relaxed and distractions are minimal. This helps you to focus and be really present.

4. No censorship allowed, and we’re certainly not inviting the grammar police! This is a place for you to freely express your thoughts and emotions without censoring yourself. Embrace the authenticity of your words. Most of all your journal is a judgement, free space for self-expression .

5. Celebrate your successes no matter how big or small and learn from your failures. In doing, so, this helps to gain valuable insights.

Hopefully you have found this useful and by following the simple steps, you can embark on a fulfilling journalling journey. So, grab your pen, find a quiet moment, and let your thoughts flow onto the pages of your journal. Happy writing!
