Journaling can help bring you clarity, awareness, and relief. Journal writing can be a powerful way to discover, explore and release stuck emotions and beliefs from your past. These journal exercises are designed to help you tune in to your inner world of thoughts, emotions and beliefs.
Understanding our beliefs and labeling our emotions helps us to communicate more effectively, release stress and tension, minimize compulsive behaviors, and create healthy coping strategies. Journaling for self discovery can help you make the most out of your counseling experience. If you are working with a therapist, share your journal exercises in your therapy sessions. Completing them in between sessions will help accelerate your progress in therapy.
