Are you a writer or someone who enjoys expressing themselves through the written word? Do you journal, or make lists, or use words to describe your day on social media, use written language to make a decision or process your day or your situation or feelings? Then you probably know that writing and language can help lead you toward finding relaxation and calm, to having a voice and feeling heard, to gaining more insight into your thoughts and situation, and releasing some of the stress, worry, or emotion you might be feeling. Writing is good for our mental health on so many levels, and I’m not talking about writing a book or getting published or writing a blog — I’m just talking about experiencing ourselves in this world and then putting words on paper, one at a time.
Some of us naturally love creative writing — writing poems, stories, first person essays, blog stories, and more. Others of us enjoy the writing for journalling, processing our thoughts and feelings, and for the love of being more deeply in touch with ourselves. We might find solace and introspection in the words, or a release of energy. There are so many benefits, and for entire lifetimes, writing has been a tool for healing.
