Journaling - An easy way through the complex mind


Did you ever wonder how things work inside your mind?

It's a whole new world in there. One day, the birds are chirping, melodies in the background, butterflies all around, rainbow in the far end, sun shining, sky clear, and perfectly planned train tracks all over for the trains that carry your random thoughts.  But the next day, the trains keep colliding making it a wreck, there is chaos all around, smoke and screams fill up your head, the sky gets cloudy, vision goes blur, you don't know what to do, you feel helpless and so you feel like giving up. The mind is a complex structure that works in mysterious ways. It's important to understand it. This is where journaling comes in handy.

People all around the world have been journaling for a long time now. Data Journaling, Food journaling, travel journaling, etc. But what we are talking about is Mind journaling. Basically, it is writing down all those overflowing thoughts in your head to clear up the chaos in your mind. There is no particular format or structure for journaling. All you gotta do is get a pen and a paper and write down everything that's in your mind so when you look back at it, you will be able to figure things out now that your mind is a little clearer. Today so many people around have adapted this method because it helps in a lot of ways like

  • Dealing with anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relieving stress
  • Track down your thoughts
  • Clear out your mind
  • helps you think better
  • Helps you analyze things better.

 

The best thing about journaling is you can be yourself. You can just write with a simple black ink or you can color code things and make it bright and colorful. You can just write or add in some drawings and make it artsy. You can take a stack of papers and start writing or you can get a dot-grid journal so your thoughts can be safe.

Journaling is an easy way to understand that complex mind of ours. But remember,

  • keep a pen and paper always handy because you never know when those random thoughts will start a havoc.
  • Write everything down, even if it seems silly.
  • You don’t have to share your journal with anyone unless you want to. It’s your choice.
  • Don’t forget to come back and read what you wrote. You never know, you might find some answers in there.
  • Write whenever you feel like writing.
  • Be true to yourself.
  • Finally, write to your heart's content. Write until you feel free and your mind seems to be at peace.

Remember, for your body to feel great, your mind and soul needs to feel good. Mental health is very important and journaling can help with that.

Until next time.

Keeping loving yourself and spread love.
