Personal Journaling

Write Your Thoughts

Journaling as Therapy

Journaling is good therapy. It is a valuable tool to support healthy lifestyles. What journaling does is not just to heal the physical, but the mental and the spiritual because you connect with your inner self.

It’s the beginning of spring and this season tends to have a positive effect on people. It’s now a good time to document your thoughts/feelings especially if you have emotional things that you are trying to work out. Connect your feelings to spring and think about a new beginning. Spring is a time of rejuvenation and growth.

Since journaling can be a healing tool and spring is a time of restoration, start a spring activity and journal about it. Or observe the colours and growth of the season and write about that. Associate all of spring’s restoration with you being on the mend and see if that helps with your overall therapy.

In writing down your thoughts and feelings you are releasing them from you. You can look at them on paper and make some analysis about the actions you want to take. Just like spring taking you from the dead of winter, you can take yourself from whatever state you are in and start anew.

Remember there is nothing like words in black and white to help you see where you are and where you are going.
