Effects Of Traumatic Events

Journal Writing As Healing

Expressive writing, or daily journaling of life events, feelings, emotions and thoughts, is a kind of therapy that improves our mental health, as we do not let life pile up, giving it space, distance and shape while reflecting on it. It acts as a vent to our sadness and deep-rooted pain, providing acceptance, and eventually healing.

Life writing can be a diary, journal, oral testimony, memoir or an autobiography, though personal essays or memoirs prove to be the most therapeutic.

Start Journaling Your Life Now

Start Journaling Your Life Now

  1. Identify a key theme or topic that you want to write about, addressing a certain emotion, challenge or trauma, giving it acceptance.
  2. Develop your topic keeping it real, raw and personal, helping you gain metacognition and awareness through the process of reflection. You are talking and listening to yourself now.
  3. Reading what you have written, helps you reconnect and review your thoughts and feelings that are on paper. This can then optionally be shared with readers who would like to read, or you can yourself play the role of an objective reader.
  4. If you decide to publish, know your genre and do not go for click-bait or sensationalism.
