Relieve Stress by Journaling

Dr. Small By Wednesday, 21 August 2019 04:17 PM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

Writing a diary or keeping a personal journal is a good way to relieve stress.

A study in the publication Psychotherapy Research demonstrated that when psychotherapy patients kept a journal, they experienced less anxiety and depression compared to a control group that did not write in a journal.

Other research has shown that journaling can reduce worry in people with generalized anxiety disorder.

Writing a diary allows people to reflect on their experiences and feelings over time, and to put them into better perspective.

It also offers an opportunity to express feelings, which usually reduces stress.

To get started, find a quiet time and comfortable place where you won’t be interrupted for several minutes, and start writing down whatever comes to mind.

You don’t have to follow any strict rules or be concerned about spelling and grammar. Simply date your entry and let it flow.
