Journaling For Mental Calm and Clarity

Journaling For Mental Calm and Clarity

When we’re battling demons or feel stuck trying to resolve a situation that seems unsolvable, life can become stressful, and our emotions can run high. Journaling is one of the methods that will bring calm and clarity to chaos. 

Let’s look at how journaling can create more clarity in your life:

Give voice to your feelings: Journaling is a judgment free activity that doesn’t talk back. It’s there to “listen” and not offer unsolicited advice. Your journal is there to “listen” and will never offer unsolicited advice. It won’t meddle or get bored. A journal simply provides a safe space for you to process what’s happening in your life—an excellent way to free yourself from your burdens and reduce chaos. 

Mental work to solve problems: Our psyche wants to figure out how to do whatever needs to be done. This is how innovation and technology have changed the world. The best way to solve a problem is to work on it. Imagine your mind twisting and turning the colors of its own Rubik’s cube until you get the pattern that unlocks the door and fixes the dilemma. 

Define your next steps: As you journal, express yourself, and work through your issues, your mind experiences the release of dopamine and starts to feel calm and competent. Ideas start to form as to what your next steps are and suddenly you have an epiphany that changes the game. Your sleep improves, your confidence improves, and you become more focused. 

Allow yourself to work through your issues by journaling and experience the satisfaction of solving your problems. There is something magical about releasing your chaos and confusion into a journal and discovering the calm and clarity within those pages.
