Wellness Journaling has skyrocketed in popularity over the past year, thanks to TikTok, where the hashtag #wellnessjournal has now garnered over 1.5 million views. Using Wellness Journals is a mindfulness practice to reduce stress and bring clarity.
It has the following advantages:
Relaxing and clearing your mind, allowing space and time to focus on the positive aspects of your life and increases your general sense of gratitude, which results in a more positive and appreciative mindset
Writing about your challenges and achievements can drive you towards your goals, helping you bring your vision to life
Letting go and reflecting on of negative thoughts, as it creates an opportunity to recover from daily stress factors and leave the insignificant stuff behind
Releasing pent-up anxiety and thoughts
Enhancing your self-awareness and acknowledging your triggers. It can help you recognise things that would otherwise go unnoticed, such as patterns in your thinking, the influences behind your feelings and behaviour
Tracking your progress – flicking back through your journal is a great way to acknowledge your growth and improvements and stay motivated
At Rescript, our latest launch couples the importance of sustainability with mental wellness. Having already released journals with different rulings, we decided to come out with journals with self-help exercises to aid easier development.
We decided to collaborate with Mind Body Resolve, to create a Wellness Journal that is psychologically proven to aid mental and physical health by catering to psychological needs, nutritional guidance, and overall fitness. It contains 4 sections that are proven to positively impact your life:
Helps you express gratitude for the positive influences in your life.
Psychological research has proven that expressing gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity and build strong relationships.
Enables positive habit formation and tracking.
It also comes with plenty of additional space to help you be imaginative and visualise as well as manifest your ideal life.
Dedicated to personal growth and development.
This section contains open-ended activities that allow you to articulate your ambitions and goals in a way that works for you. It’s important that you revisit this section whenever you feel demotivated to help you keep sight of your goals and find ways to achieve them.
Contains tools, activities and interventions that you can use in the event of episodes of mental and emotional imbalance, and helps you overcome them.
In the event of panic attacks, depressive episodes, or other mental distresses, this section provides ground exercises along with plenty of space for you to give form to your stressors- to identify and address them over time.
Ultimately, wellness is a process you make entirely your own. If you feel that a wellness journal with all the bells and whistles, like specific sections, would work best for you, then feel free to put the Rescript Wellness Journals to use. On the other hand, if you believe that a blank journal with a dotted, square grid, single-line rulings or even unruled journals would suffice, check out the Rescript Eco-Friendly Journals here.
There are no rules—cultivate your wellness journaling practice in a manner that feels good to you.
