I journal frequently in order to balance my emotions by letting them go on paper. Journaling involves writing you thoughts and feelings on paper. Generally journals are for our eyes only, and we do not share them with others.
How does journaling work for me? I ask myself questions, for example: why am I so angry about a particular circumstance or situation? Why does it make me feel so sad? Then I write down my answers. I do not filter my thoughts; I just release them onto the paper. This practice significantly lightens the burden in my head and heart.
There are many ways to journal, and the benefits are vast. Here are a few journaling techniques you may want to try…
• Look for things during the day for which you are grateful
• Make a list each day of at least 5 things you’re grateful for at the end of the day; this may be a list or it may be in paragraph form
• You will look at things more positively because of this, and even obstacles become opportunities to appreciate
• When you wake, write everything you can in paragraph form
• Clear your mind by getting rid of negative thoughts or fears
• Liberate yourself to allow the goodness of the day to enter your heart
• Keep track of all the small victories in your day
• This builds self-confidence and enables you to make bigger actions for bigger victories each day.
• Keep track of all your hopes, dreams and aspirations
• By having these in writing, your attention will be on achieving them
• Your dreams will become your goals and then your successes
