In studies with PTSD and cancer patients, expressive writing i.e. journaling thoughts and feelings, has been shown to not necessarily alleviate symptoms of the respective diseases, but to be instrumental in improving mood, sense of well-being, and outlook on life.
I am not a therapist, and if you have PTSD, anxiety, depression, or another significant illness, always consult your medical or mental health professional. But I am a person with a lot of love in her heart for the human condition, a desire to serve, and a wish for you to be well, happy, and as free from suffering as possible.
I’m working on resources to help explore how to bring expressive writing into daily rituals and mindfulness practices.
