How to Use Past Journal Entries
to Help Solve Problems Today
Journaling can help you work through stress-causing problems
in your daily life, your relationships, your family and friends
and even in the workplace.
Journal writing isn't just about feeling better today. It
can also help you solve problems and understand situations
by looking back on your life and your past entries.
After you have been journaling for any length of time, you
will be able to see how you can look back on past entries
and observe your own personal growth. Many of your early entries
may begin as stress-filled, snippets of complaints and confusion.
As you continue writing, you will discover ways to work through
the stress in your life and you will find yourself solving
problems as you are writing them down. You will begin making
plans for taking control of situations in your life.
Reading over past entries can help you in different ways such
1. Lets you see how you have grown over time.
2. Reminds you of how you have handled a similar situation.
3. Gives you a different perspective because with each new
day, you are no longer the same person.
It can be beneficial in times of stress to look over your
past and see that you have overcome other obstacles. It can
help give you hope that you will get through your current
situation. This helps reduce the stress that you may be feeling
over the situation.
