Write it down to let it go.
Chase your worries away.
Sometimes naming our fears is the best way to face them.
As Mark Twain said, “ I’ve lived through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” Our worries are real, even if they don’t always come true. And with so much uncertainty in our world, it is no wonder that anxiety can drive a lot of our thoughts and decisions. Journaling can help put you back in the driver’s seat as you write down what’s got you worried today.
Sometimes taking time to write down what’s got us worried actually helps us to see it in perspective. Keeping track of your thought cycle and what makes you spiral into worry can be helpful as you become self aware. Check out our Inspire notebooks for freewriting your worries.
Think of your notebook as a place where you leave your worries to rest. So that you can, too.
Anxiety Journal Prompts
Starting in on an anxiety journal can be daunting. Perhaps begin by cataloging your worries. Which are real and which are hypothetical scenarios. What if those possible situations come true? Make a plan just in case. Remember how you’ve met challenges in the past. You may find your fear lessening by taking this action. Let go of what you can’t control. Never be afraid to ask for help.
