Benefits of journaling
  • Can help us find meaning in our feelings, improve sleep by getting thoughts off our chest, and even improve relationships.
  • To just write them down is not enough. Taking time to think through the structure of your writing and the details you include is a good way to do this, psychotherapists say.
  • You can free write, keep entries very structured, or wander somewhere in between as you see fit.

Mental Health Journal Prompts For Calm and Self-Discovery - Ink+Volt

If you’re journaling for self-improvement, you can:
  • Track goals, your mood, and habits. This is a good way of understanding what triggers you may have in your life, what’s working for you and what’s causing anxiety or stress. 
  • Document your decision-making process. I’ve often found making decisions to be stressful. Having a place to organize thoughts can be helpful.
  • Use a stream of consciousness writing session to better understand yourself and emotions. You might be surprised to uncover how your thoughts connect.
