Expressive Writing

I was recently in a car accident. Nothing too serious but I have been having back and neck problems because of it. I have also been in a bit of a rut ever since. It has been 3 weeks now and I still don't feel like I'm back to my bubbly self. I have been sleeping in late and haven't been in the best place mentally. I read a while ago that writing for 15 minutes everyday is really good for your mental as well as your physical health.

I am going to dedicate 15 minutes everyday for the next two weeks to writing. I encourage you to do that same. You can write about anything. Here are some idea:

  • Something that you are thinking or worrying about
  • Something that you have been dreaming about
  • Something that has been affecting your life
  • Something that you have been avoiding
  • Write about how your day was
  • Write about how you want your day to go or your ideal day
The options are endless. 

You can write by hand or type it on the computer. You can save what you write, to look back on it later, or you can throw it away. 

I will be writing by hand. I could post my entries, but I think some of them will be too personal. If I write something that I feel comfortable sharing I will post it. 

Here is a video explaining the expressive writing method:
