How journaling healed my depression

Updated: May 13, 2020

Journaling is a way to express emotions, put your thoughts onto paper and to obtain your mind in a clear state. There's nothing that has helped me more than journaling in reaching The Happy Model Mind. Try it for yourself.

In this 21st century, everything goes so fast. And... our thoughts are no different. We are thinking, thinking, thinking - without really reflecting or taking a break and try to see things from a different angle. Journaling works like magic- I promise. Journaling was also a way to get my mind of things. You can accept and express your emotions. It makes you act upon and even improve the situation, rather than over-think about why things went the way they did. You realise what thoughts are really there, and you realise what you could actually do about a difficult situation (and accept the aspects that are out of your hands).

“When a photographer can’t change a scene, he changes his angle and lens to capture the best of that scene. Similarly, when you can’t change a situation in your life, change your perspective to get the best out of that situation. Try to be a filter, not a sponge.”

Some question you can ask yourself while journaling:

- What am I proud of right now?

- What am I grateful for right now?

- What kind of person do I want to be?

- What is not going perfect in my life (yet)? Where can I improve?

- Who do I want to hang around with more often?

- What makes me feel alive?

- What experiences do I want to have today (or tomorrow, when you write this in the evening)?

- What beautiful intention can I set for today (or tomorrow)?

Get yourself a nice little notebook that you can bring with you to castings, shows or shoots.

Try it for yourself. The best is to do it every day for a few minutes. Make it a little habit to write your thoughts down. It's a form of expression and reflection, really.

I hope you have a wonderful day or evening,

Spread the love,
