Keeping a daily journal is an excellent source for stress relief techniques using natural resources and good common sense.

Because success in any activity reduces drastically when stress takes over, understanding these stress relief techniques is useful for most people.

But also, for those of us who live with high anxieties on a regular basis, every little bit helps and is a most welcome relief.

12 Essential Reasons to Journal for An Amazing Lifestyle

    1. Clear Your Thoughts and Feelings.

    Do you ever feel like you are just jumbled up inside? The truth is, people with anxieties often feel jumbled up inside. Journaling is a great way to perceive things more clearly and in a different light.

    2. Get To Know Yourself Better.

    Do you have a hard time figuring out what makes you happy and content? Tracking your emotions and actions through journaling is great way to figure out what makes you tick.

    3. Help Eliminate Stress.

    Stress has been known throughout history to have major negative effects on humans in addition to the fact that we pass them on to our children in our DNA.

    4. Learn To Handle And Solve More Problems Effectively.

    To become a better problem solver, you need to train your mind. You must cultivate and preserve the right thoughts and proceed with the right action. Why not try journaling and see if your ability to handle difficult situations improves?

    5. Become More Empathetic to Others.

    There is probably nothing worse than feeling down on yourself and you often times feel this way after a disagreement with a loved one. Journaling allows you to diffuse these confusing emotions and feel more empathy towards not only others, but towards yourself as well.

    6. Be More Creative. Have you ever heard of someone keeping a dream journal?

    Many famous authors and writers practice this tactic from time to time. Dream journals can be both fascinating and revealing.

    7. Improve Your Outlook On Life.

    Journaling also helps you improve your outlook on life by becoming more in touch with the world around you without undue stress. In fact, stress is diffused when you journal, so naturally, the world becomes a more beautiful place.

    8. Better Identify Your Problems.

    Pretty much everyone is going to have problems in their life. You’re no different. So, instead of focusing on what others might be doing to you, why not focus on your own behaviors and see what good things come of that.

    9. Become a Problem Solver.

    You are most likely already aware that problems in your life spiral out of control if you don’t deal with them. Journaling is a fantastic way of getting on top of problem solving in your life.

    10. Overcome Anxiety.

    One of the most common reasons people start journaling for mental health is because they’re dealing with anxiety. So, naturally, turning to a daily journal to work out these mental health issues helps reveal behaviors in yourself that are contributing to your anxieties.

    11. Put Things in Perspective.

    People with anxieties naturally blow things out of proportion. There is a good chance that you do the same. For example, if you find yourself over-exaggerating in response to stressful events, you know it’s time to journal!

    12. ‘natural’ is preferred over pharmaceutical

    Personally, I’m not interested in become a guinea pig for modern pharmaceuticals without many more years of trials. That’s why it’s important to continue to pursue natural stress relief techniques and I believe you will find that journaling is one of the best!
