Only authors, journalists, students, and researchers don’t write. Anybody can write as it is considered to be a great stress-reliever and mood-enhancer. Whether you are depressed, angry, or just pensive; penning down your thoughts can act as a therapy or counseling. Here are the top 10 ways you can use writing to solve the complex problems of life.
10. Deal with anger
When you are mad at something or someone, just pick a pen and a paper, and vent out your anger on it. You may also analyze the situation and decide about your standpoint. Slowly, you will realize that the mind is back to its calm stage.
9. Manage stress
Just write “feeling stressed” in the paper and start writing why you are feeling so, what made you feel so etc. Once your mind stops concentrating on ‘stress’, it will start finding out a solution.
8. Fight depression
More than 4 billion people suffer from depression worldwide. If you are going through depression, try this. Make a journal about your depression; update it regularly; pen down all your thoughts, worries, and frustrations. You will slowly realize that you are overcoming it unknowingly.
7. Beat anxiety
By penning down the reasons of your anxiety and what you are anticipating, you can easily beat the anxiousness out of your mind. It will help you concentrate on the core issues and find a way out instead of spend time worrying.
6. Cope with confusion
Confusion happens to everyone, so don’t think that you are the only one fighting with it. Being confused is a normal human nature and if you are too worried about your puzzled self then use writing as your weapon. Once you start writing, you will notice that the air of confusion is slowly thinning away.
5. Face your fears
We do anything to not come face to face with our fears. But if you can point them out in the paper and stare at the words for a moment, you will feel that it does not seem that much horrifying or troublesome. Try to bring back your control power over your mind.
4. Get over your grieves
Grief in life comes in different ways, at different moments, and every time when it comes we least expect it. So suddenly we are in a shock of great loss. If you have lost someone close then writing down the memories, expressing those times spent with that person, can help you overcome the sense of loss.
3. Get rid of bad mood
“It shall pass.” Remember this quote whenever you feel overjoyed or overshadowed. Whether it is happiness or sadness, it will move on one day. Write that down every time you feel bogged down.
2. Cope with physical sufferings
Whenever your health or body upsets you, it’s good to write about that in detail. Apart from its impact on mind, it will help your doctor too.
1. Fight back low self-esteem
