Journal Prompts for Anxiety Part 2

One anxious thought often leads to another, and then another, until the person is surrounded by these thoughts. It becomes difficult to revert to a worry-free state of mind once these anxious thoughts take over. In moments like this, journaling can help reduce anxiety. Studies have shown that writing about how a person feels has the potential to ease anxiety in people who have suffered from traumatic event.

Here are some journaling prompts for you :

  • Make a list of people with whom you have a poor relationship and the reasons why.
  • What brings you peace and why?
  • Where do you feel the safest and the reasons why?
  • Who loves you truly for who you are?
  • Make a list of 3 things that you want to change about yourself. Then, write action points how you could accomplish this.
  • What are your talents? What are you doing right now to nourish these talents?
  • Describe your biggest accomplishment.

  3. These are amazing prompts! I used to journal a lot, but recently stopped as it’s difficult for me to figure out what exactly is bothering me. I will use these prompts to get me started.

      Way to go Desiree. The idea is to write in detail what you are feeling, why do you feel that way, what you think the cause could be, some solutions for those problems, and so forth. It is important to explore all aspects of your emotions and evaluate different perspectives of the situation.

      The practice of writing can enhance the brain’s intake, processing, retaining, and retrieving of information, it promotes the brain’s attentive focus, boosts long-term memory, illuminates patterns, gives the brain time for reflection, and when well-guided, is a source of conceptual development and stimulus of the brain’s highest cognition.
