How Writing Helps Boost Your Mood During COVID-19
As we navigate the next few weeks, practicing these writing exercises will boost your mood and allow you to explore your thoughts and ideas.
Let’s talk, Journaling!
Journaling allows you to process and analyze your issues and concerns. WHY? It is a free flow of your ideas, your thoughts, and your worries. As you practice journaling, you will begin to feel reflective, introspective, and you will start to familiarize yourself with your thoughts.
Journaling is developing a relationship with your mind.
How does it help with anxiety and depression?
It is a window into your inner thoughts. Once you begin to “hear” your thoughts and you see the patters that may develop over a few days or a week, you can identify what triggers certain emotions, and the hope is, you will begin to discover things about yourself that you didn’t know were inside you! Words don’t lie – let your words flow freely, and you may be surprised at what comes out.
Daily Journaling Practice:
- 20 mins of journaling a day
- Find a private place where you can write uncensored
- Use a pen, pencil, crayon, marker – whatever makes you feel creative
- Write in pink, green, purple – experiment with color as it will encourage creativity
- Allow your mind to wander, frolic and get a break from the day-to-day
Journal writing is a form of meditation. It allows your mind to adopt a trans-like-state where thoughts run through you. You may discover some new thoughts you didn't even know you had!
