Writing Can Help You Heal
[Approximate Reading Time : 3 mins]
Whether you’re stressed out from a long week at the office, dreading an upcoming deadline or dealing with a recent tragedy, it can be hard to find ways to cope. If you need a way to heal from the past or de-stress, consider writing.
For many, writing can be therapeutic. A study published in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology found that writing, including expressive writing, journaling and many other forms, can have a positive impact on your emotional and even physical health. Here are just a few emotional and physical benefits that have been documented from writing:
- Improved immune functioning
- Decreased stress
- Improved overall mood
Improving Your Writing and Your Mood
Of course, there are some caveats to this. When writing about a particularly difficult or traumatizing subject, the initial writing sessions can cause even greater levels of stress and anxiety.
A good way to not only amplify how your writing helps your mood but also improve your writing ability overall is to look for meaning in your content. Continue to practice your writing, work to create clear and concise content and focus your experiences or ideas to a meaningful purpose.
