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.

  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

The experience of trauma is heavy on one’s emotional, mental and physical health, leading to complications like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) along with anxiety, depression and other emotional issues.
