Journaling is the practice of writing down one’s thoughts, feelings, experiences and learnings on a regular basis. This is particularly helpful when one is working towards better mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Significance of Journaling
Journaling for mental health is a healthy habit – to maintain self-awareness; to regulate emotions; and, to promote mental well-being. It is the most effective method of talking to yourself for a few minutes, every day. Studies have shown that engaging in regular journaling can help reduce stress, manage anxiety and depression symptoms, enhance self-awareness, promote emotional regulation and even strengthen resilience in the face of challenges.
Particularly significant is the outcome of journaling with our non-dominant hand.
Journaling with the non-dominant hand
Non-dominant handwriting technique, discovered initially and promoted by art therapist Dr. Lucia Capacchione, is a pathway to access parts of you that are not readily accessible. Right hemisphere brain functions- feelings, intuition, gut instinct, inner wisdom and spirituality- can be accessed when we journal with our non-dominant hand.
Journaling with your non-dominant hand is also an inner child healing exercise. This is a beautiful method of self-exploration, finding your hidden truths.
