The Journaling Lifeline

A daily habit of writing or Journaling can be beneficial in a number of ways. Some individuals are self-conscious or have difficulty expressing themselves and may find it uncomfortable to talk to friends or relatives about specific emotion-laden problems. Anxiety producing situations or people can be easier to write about than to discuss.

Written thoughts can be reviewed later, enabling one to organize ideas and make changes to avoid repeating past mistakes.

The Letter Writer

Journaling can also take the form of writing a letter to yourself. It can include maintaining a diary, log, and even writing poetry. Letter-writing provides you with the ability to ask questions about a current crisis. If you are facing important emotional obstacles writing a letter allows you to pause and give it some thought before writing a response. This detachment can be a great problem-solving method. There is no need to rush. With some thought, you can offer more than one solution as if you are trying to help an old friend in distress.

A Journaling Lifeline offers you favorable and rational resolutions to a current crisis or problem, thus strengthening coping mechanisms so you’re better able to deal with problems as they come up.
