Journaling brings you one-on-one with your negative thoughts and feelings, allows you to feel them and then get rid of them. Believe me, this can help you stay focused and sharp, become more self-aware, achieve a positive mindset and optimistic outlook,
What Are the Benefits of Journaling/Mindfulness?
Writing down your thoughts and emotions can make your fears and concerns go away. This can elevate your mood and help you be in good spirits.
Strengthens Your Immune System
When you are happy and cheery, your immune system functioning improves. Journaling improves your immune system function by strengthening your immune cells. With a strong immune system, you keep a doctor away.
Makes Your Memory Super Sharp
When you write down your thoughts and feelings, they will likely become your point of focus. Focusing on something makes our brain interpret it as high-priority information. This increases the likelihood of remembering those things in the future.
How Often Should Someone Journal?
As a credentialed therapist, I advise you to commit to journaling for 10 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
What Are the Different Styles of Mindfulness Journals Out There?
While there are tons of mindfulness journals out there, my favourite is The Mindfulness Journal by Barrie Davenport and S.J Scott. What sets it apart from other mindfulness journals is its daily prompts. Believe me, you will never lack what to write in your mindfulness journal. I also recommend the Insight Editions “Gratitude”: A Day and Night Reflection Journal. This is a 90-day journal that allows you to write down your thoughts upon waking up and before going to bed. It also comes with check boxes and writing exercises to help keep track of your emotions, habits and daily activities. What’s more, it encourages you to be thankful and appreciative in your day-to-day life.
