For many people, putting thoughts and feelings into words helps relieve stress and anxiety. Over the past 30 years, hundreds of scientific studies have shown expressive writing can help improve mental and physical health.

It can help you to better understand what is happening in your life. Once you have a handle on what’s going on, you can start to move forward.

Expressive writing is not a substitute for therapy

The expressive writing exercises are meant to be learning experiences. Although writing can be a powerful coping tool, it is not a substitute for professional therapy.

Expressive writing is not recommended if you are currently highly distressed or depressed.
