4. Journal or Blog it Out
The key here is to reap one of the main benefits of journaling – and writing in general – a wonderful cathartic release. Letting your subconscious thoughts stream freely into the conscious real through the words on the pages of your journal or an online blog, will instantly provide a sense of freedom, unlike anything you may have experienced before. What’s even more amazing is that this is something that you can do at any time that suits you, practically anywhere thinkable and it can be something that you do just for yourself or display to others. Studies have suggested that writing about traumatic situations and experiences helps to ease tensions in our minds, which aids in psychological and physiological recovery processes.
Again, take 5 minutes out of your day to do this. Let that be a start. Odds are, you’ll increase it no time. Trust us. It’s kind of addictive.
