Write About Where You’re In Life Presently

One of the first things you need to do in the process of healing. Accept everything that has happened in the past and currently the way it comes to you. So, start by describing your situation, work and relationship. Think about it deeply if they’re really where you want them to be. It helps you self-reflect and really get to the root of what may be troubling you. 

Avoid Editing While Writing

Many times you may have a lot of thoughts that keep piling up if not let out. So, try to write without editing your thoughts or feelings as it helps you in healing yourself. For once, don’t think about correcting your grammar or censoring your thoughts. Try doing it continuously for five to ten minutes. It builds a stream of consciousness that allows you to express yourself freely and this way you don’t hold back anything. 

Maintain A Log of Successes

Writing about your success, no matter how big or small it is, can be helpful. Start with what are the successes you had in a week and let it become your habit. As you continue writing it, you will see your list will grow and inspire you to do better. 


Also, let’s be honest, we all have bad days and on such days, it feels difficult to look at anything good at all. Whether it is personally or professionally, it is easy to succumb to those thoughts. Maintaining a log of success can be helpful and healing on such days too. 

Jot Down Everything That’s Disturbing You In Third Person

On such days, you need something that allows you to detach from the situation and allows you to see the situation from outside.

When you write using this technique, you will learn a lot about yourself too.
