Write it Off your Chest

When I feel I’m losing control over my thoughts – whether my brain is swirling with too many ideas or fears and anxiety get a grip on me, or if there are just things I don’t want to forget – I write them down. My notebook is always with me, wherever I go.

Writing down thoughts helps process them and sort them out. It is also a great way of confronting anxiety and fears.

Although I have not talked with anyone about what I wrote, I was finally able to deal with it, work through the pain instead of trying to block it out. Now it doesn’t hurt to think about it.”  https://www.verywell.com/journaling-a-great-tool-for-coping-with-anxiety-3144672

Sometimes, when I have to meet someone for a talk and I’m not exactly sure how to begin the conversation or I’m afraid I’ll forget to mention the important points, I sit down before and compile the relevant information and arguments in writing. Putting the thoughts to paper helps consolidate them in my mind.

Whatever it is I jot down, writing always leaves me with a feeling of relief and accomplishment.

Writing gives form to your ideas and gets them out of your head, freeing up bandwidth and preventing you from crashing your browser like a late night downward spiral on Wikipedia.” https://www.helpscout.net/blog/benefits-of-writing/



  1. Hi Heila 🙂
    What a good idea to write things down. I cannot use a pen, but jot things down on my laptop Notepad which I keep on my desktop.
    I do hope that you are well and happy my friend.
    Take care. Hugs. Ralph ❤
