Journaling has been found to be a powerful, yet easy way to change your life for the better. Our storage Wandsworth can help you find the space to do it consistently.
Journaling may seem like something that you do when you are a teenager, filling a notebook with your teenage angst. Actor Matthew McConaughey has been very open about his journaling practices and is trying to get more people to be open to journaling as he believes there are many benefits to doing it.
And he is right. Having a consistent journaling practice can be life changing and can greatly benefit your mental health.
How can journaling change your life?
Writing down your thoughts and feelings is beneficial to you as you will be able to understand them more clearly. You are able to dig deeper into what is really causing you to feel a certain way. Journaling is also a great way to manage anxiety and stress as it can help you find what has triggered this feeling within you.
Along with helping you gain some control over your mental health, it can also help your mental health by helping you to bring more gratitude into your life. Many studies have shown the importance of gratitude with it bringing about increased levels of happiness but also increasing exercise and improving sleep. Journaling allows you to reflect on all the good things in your life as they are all written down for you to see.
Journaling can also help you to see what you desire from your life, allowing you to set goals and begin taking action to achieve them.
There are not only mental benefits to journaling, there are also physical benefits. Journaling has been proven to improve a person’s overall immune function.
A study conducted by Karen A. Baikie and Kay Wilhelm showed that people who journal 3-5 times a week, for 20 mins, saw improved immune system, lower blood pressure, improved lung function and improved liver function.
Journaling can also improve memory function. The practice of journaling can enhance the brain’s intake, processing, retaining, and retrieving of information.
So, why aren’t we all journaling?
There is an idea that this is something that you only do when you are younger or something only women do but, many people and studies are trying to break down this thinking, as journaling is so beneficial to us all.
Another issue is finding the space in which you can sit quietly and reflect and look inward on how you are feeling. You won’t feel the full benefits if you are trying to squeeze it in at the table, whilst you are getting ready for work and/or getting the kids ready for school.
You need to give yourself the time and the space to allow yourself to dig deep and feel the life changing benefits of journaling.
