Stay Sane and Centered with Journaling
The current world crisis caused by COVID-19 has everyone in a state of unease and uncertainty. Quarantines, lockdowns, social distancing measures — all of these have turned our way of life upside down. Schools are closed, employees are told to work remotely, and everyone is advised to stay at home whenever possible.
Fear and anxiety rule our day-to-day lives. Being isolated from our friends and other family members doesn’t’ help either. More than ever, we need a way to stay centered and sane to be able to weather out this storm.
This is where journaling comes in. It’s a great tool that can help you deal with stressful situations as it provides you an outlet for whatever negative vibes you’re feeling. Stress and anxiety are normal, especially during these times. However, dismissing these emotions and not working through them can raise their levels.
When you journal your thoughts, you’ll acknowledge your negative thoughts and emotions in a non-confrontational way. You won’t just be writing them down, but you’ll unconsciously sort through them at the same time. This will allow you to face whatever it is that’s bothering you.
The Beneficial Effects of Journaling
Numerous studies have been conducted on the effects of journaling. They show that recording one’s thoughts and feelings helps a person process emotions better and alleviate their anxiety.
Journaling can help you confront emotions that you’re consciously avoiding and process them accordingly. Writing them down is a way of putting those emotions in a more controlled state.
Researchers from the University of Minnesota conducted a study on interventions made to improve the mental health and social-emotional functioning of individuals. They found that one of the most effective ways of coping was writing one’s thoughts as it helped decrease mental stress load and served as a way to release pent-up feelings by putting them into words.
Note, however, that journaling doesn’t always have to be about negativity. You can also use it to express feelings of gratitude, happiness, and empowerment.
Sure, this pandemic may have us all cooped up inside our homes. However, do try to look at the glass half-full instead of half-empty. You now have more time with your family. You don’t have to deal with stressful commutes, and you now have more time for your hobbies.
Use journaling as a way to remind yourself of the many positive things in your life.
