    How Writing Therapy Can Help You Heal

    Have you heard of writing therapy?

    Whether it is a book you are working on, or maybe an article source in a publication, people are usually writing to impress others, and to meet deadlines. Did you know, however, that writing can be therapeutic?

    That’s right, writing therapy can be healing both physically and mentally. When you write to heal, you develop more self-awareness and empathy. You can markedly improve your sense of well being.

    By having an outlet to express unresolved emotions and baggage, you can help yourself heal from past traumas. In order for writing therapy to be effective, you must allow yourself to feel any emotions that come up when writing.

    The process of writing about trauma can help you find some meaning in the experiences. Science has shown that expressive writing, a form of writing therapy that involves writing about traumatic experiences and worries, can improve both mental and physical health.

    Studies show that those who engaged in expressive writing experienced lower resting blood pressure levels, improved lung function, and a boosted immune system. Subjects who lost their jobs were able to find jobs quicker after unemployment after participating in expressive writing. Writing about your worries allows you to set them down so that you need not ruminate on them in a circular fashion.

    Expressive writing can be intense, and it should not be done if you do not feel ready to deal with a trauma, especially a recent one. Gratitude journaling can be done by anyone at anytime, and can make you feel good quite quickly. It is a method of writing where you write down a few things that you are especially grateful for each day. Studies have shown that those who kept a gratitude journal were able to sleep better, experienced more motivation, and felt a profound improvement on their subjective well being.

    Poetry writing can be therapeutic when you allow your self-expression to be sculpted into a poem. Feelings of sadness, unresolved trauma, and unhappy memories can thus be dealt with in a philosophical and metaphorical way.
