Why Should You Start Journalling? - The Benefits of Journalling & Recording your Thoughts

Journaling is a powerful tool that can have a positive impact on your mental health. Not only does it help you process difficult emotions, but it can also help boost your confidence by making you feel accomplished.


Here are a few reasons why we love journalling, and how they can positively impact your mental wellbeing

  1. It helps you process your thoughts and emotions: When you're feeling overwhelmed, it can be difficult to make sense of everything going on in your head. By writing down your thoughts and feelings in a journal, you can better understand and process your emotions. This can lead to increased self-awareness and help you work through challenges more effectively.

  2. It promotes mindfulness: The act of journaling requires you to be present in the moment and focus on your thoughts and feelings. This can help you cultivate mindfulness, which is the practice of paying attention to the present moment without judgment. Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.

  3. It provides a sense of accomplishment: Seeing your thoughts and feelings on paper can give you a sense of accomplishment and help you feel more in control of your life. It can also be a great way to track your progress and see how far you've come over time.

  4. It's a safe space: A journal can be a safe and private place to express your deepest thoughts and feelings. It can be a place where you can be completely honest with yourself without fear of judgment.


Overall, journaling is a simple but powerful tool that can have a profound impact on your mental health. Whether you're dealing with stress, anxiety, or just want to better understand your thoughts and feelings, giving journaling a try could be a great step towards improving your well-being.
