Healing Power of Writing

blog writing

Since I began writing my blogs I have felt this enormous sense of ease that has taken over my life. Still I run into my occasional problem but nothing I can’t come to understand. Blogging to me has helped me tremendously by giving me a different perspective when tackling my problems.

Writing has a profound effect when immersed creatively. As an author of an expressive piece of writing a lot of relevant insight into one’s life can be gathered. Writing can have a therapeutic effect improving mood, well-being and reducing stress. Reflecting and writing about good things can help us to feel more positive and motivated while also balancing the mental tabs of an overcrowded mind.

Writing about certain topics can help an author to gain insight into his/her priorities to better understand his/her emotional reaction. Expressive writing is thought to help enhance self-regulation and facilitate mental health. Whether reflecting on positive aspects of life trauma or visualizing our best possible self, writing allows individuals to examine a previously unexamined part of their lives.

Trauma writing is predicated on the idea we must revisit, re-experience and re-evaluate past traumas to release pent-up emotion and to really let go. When we choose to hold back from sharing our traumatic events we tend to experience chronic autonomic arousal and immune function deterioration. Writing can be an outlet to deal with pain rather than just blocking it out.

BPS or best possible self-based writing tends to bring awareness to ourselves when considering higher-level goals. Writing about our best personal self allows us to clarify our goals while reorganizing priorities and deciding on values. BPS writing appears to offer the same therapeutic benefits as trauma-based writing without the damper on mood.

“I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say” – Flannery O’Connor

Writing is a journey and can be a vessel to take you from point A to point B. If you’re feeling writer’s block remember to just let it flow. Write on whatever topic is concerning you this very moment. Write about where you would love to see yourself in the future. Write about your dream vacations, your dream home and your dream job. Write about writing. Write about psychology, spirituality or health. Write blogs about blogs. For the love of God just write and see where it takes you.

Blogging – Note to Followers

team work

I’ve always been one to want to help another. Growing up I quickly became obsessed with the sport of football. Little did I know this sport taught me principles of success that I would never forget.

Football taught me the importance of supporting one another. It taught me how to be a leader but most importantly it taught me how to work hard for what I want.

Blogging is kind of like football. I can’t do it alone. It will come down to the supportive cast (followers and commenters). All I can do is maintain a positive attitude and do my best working towards my goals. If all goes accordingly maybe I’ll move forward to a bigger and better opportunity.

Although it would be amazing to gain new career opportunities through my blogging my main goal remains to help people and build a following. I don’t want to build a following for any other means than to help individuals through their struggles. Helping others is its own reward and I relic at any opportunity to do so.

Special thanks to anyone who reads my blogs. Remember I cherish your feedback so feel free to post comments on what you like, what you don’t and what you think I can do better.  🙂
