5 Journal Prompts to Help Tackle Anxiety

Wellness Tips

August 25, 2019

When anxious thoughts creep into your mind, it’s hard to shoo them away. One tiny concern leads to another until it feels like you’re buried underneath an avalanche of stress and the clock reads 3 am. Not only is this detrimental for your sleep, but it also causes inflammation in the body, leading to a laundry list of health problems.

One way to get your thoughts back on track when they have gone off the rails is to journal for five or ten minutes. The simple act of putting pen to paper puts a stop to rumination and clarifies your emotions. Kickstart this new habit with 5 journal prompts to help tackle anxiety below.

  1. Write down everything that is spinning around in your head. Don’t stop and think about it. Just write whatever comes to mind. This is your safe place to get everything down on the page without judgment. Once you’re done, take five deep belly breaths and walk away. You can revisit what you have written once you’re in a clearer state of mind.
  2. I remember feeling…..anxiety hides in your past so well that sometimes you forget where the fear is coming from. This allows you to explore your past moments with a more mindful approach so you can understand why you felt or are feeling a certain way.
  3. Write down three things you’re grateful for. Focusing on the positive can shift your mindset away from the negative and into the present.
  4. Describe a place you feel safe. It can be the beach, your grandmother’s house or somewhere you have never visited before. Write down what you see, hear and smell in detail.
  5. Write a love letter to yourself. A lot of the time when anxiety hits, the first person you attack is yourself. Listing all the wonderful attributes you possess is a good reminder of the kick-ass person you are.
