The world is a complicated place to live in. At any given time, there are a lot going on. Whether it be your personal life or work life- there are responsibilities you have to cater to and the constant ups and downs of life going on. Sometimes all of this can get too overwhelming. In moments like these, all you want to do is sit in a comfortable corner, one you have to yourself and is secluded from the hustle and bustle of daily life. If you can have this, that is amazing! But chances are you will be forced to leave this comfortable and secluded place because you need to do life. So, how can you process everything around you and fight that overwhelming feeling, which is constantly weighing you down? Journaling.
Writing down your thoughts, pouring out anything and everything that has been bothering you or causing you to worry, or making you feel overjoyed- note it all down. This may seem like a simplistic process, but it does wonders for how you are feeling. Sometimes there is just too much going on in your head, and it can become too much for anyone. Being able to pour it all out helps take the weight off your shoulders, it helps you breathe deeper and before you know it, you will be feeling much better!
Gratitude journaling is also an excellent way to feel better. Instead of focusing on all the bad parts of life, it helps shift the focus towards all the good in your life. No matter how small it is, if it brings a smile to your face or makes you feel warm, it is worth it and it is something good in your life. Writing it down gives it more importance and it directs your brain to focus on the positives too! Make sure to write something down, it has a magical impact on your mental health!
