Journaling is a great tool that I encourage my clients to use. Journaling works sort of like a diary except that you want to in there include all the feelings that you struggled with throughout the day. So for example, if you had a hard day at work, what did it feel like for you? What kind of feelings did it bring up for you? The other thing about journaling is that it's important to develop some sort of routine with it - so maybe it will be something that you do before bedtime. You prepare a nice cup of tea and this will be a bedtime thing that you do. It's part of self-care. The great thing about journaling is that it allows you to process all of the emotions. So for those who struggle with traumatic events, it really allows them to process those traumatic events. So there are a lot of great things about journaling. I hope this encourages you to start one.
