Do you ever wish you could just take a second at the end of each day and wipe out your mind so that it’s clean and comfortable and void of all the mental chaos and confusion you encountered throughout your day?
Some people achieve a form of this by quietly meditating. Others engage in a self care routine by using things like spa products or guided visualization. But for many people, it’s not quite enough to erase the pressures of your day temporarily.
You may want to work through them over a period of time, and making them disappear from your mind for a few moments means they’ll just resurface once you’ve stopped engaging in your peaceful routine.
Blogging is one way you can get the thoughts from your head and heart into a space where you can then work on them objectively. At the end of each day, you can come home, log onto your blog and get it all out.
Your frustrations with work, your worries about family, your struggles with your health – you can work on whatever it is tugging at your heart and soul and causing you distress during the waking hours.
By downloading these thoughts and emotions into your blog, you’re removing them from your mental space and giving yourself a platform where you can work on them actively over a period of time.
You’ll be able to see patterns unfold. Your behaviors and reactions to things can be very telling. You might realize someone is taking advantage of you and that you need to implement boundaries with that person, for example.
When you do this on a regular basis, it helps you strategically alleviate your stress and achieve a feeling of peace and calm. You no longer have to go to bed with a heavy heart and a racing mind.
You’ve gotten everything out in your blog and you’ve discussed it and worked on a plan to remedy anything that’s gone wrong. You might even be lucky enough to capture the attention of a dedicated and loyal audience who can offer guidance and camaraderie through your struggles and help you achieve great things, including contentment with your life.
A blog is more than a journal. It’s an evolving record of your evolution as a human who has to deal with outward influences, internal emotions and a flurry of ups and downs in life.
