It helps you see things in a different perspective, a more positive perspective.
Write down your thoughts and feelings to understand them more clearly.
If you're struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, keep a journal and write down whatever comes to mind.
Don't worry about style or form. Just write, even if it's for few minutes. It will gradually increase as you get into the habit.
It will help you gain control of your emotions, improve your mental health and also help abstain from negative thoughts and feelings.
By comparing your writings on an ongoing basis, you will see the progress you made in healing, mindfulness, spirituality, or anything you're focused on.
This is the best method to expose yourself and feelings. It will help you get rid of any unwanted situation, help you find inspiration, motivation, solace, and become a better person.
You can even include a gratitude section in your notebook. Everyday, write down a few things that you're grateful for. This will make you more aware of God's blessings upon you, it will humble you, and make you be content with yourself, your possessions, etc.
So, get a notebook and start writing down whatever you feel, whenever it comes to mind .
