I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Blogging is great therapy

on April 8, 2013

writing on paperWriting is a powerful tool that can help you move forward in life.  When you write down your thoughts down on paper it can have a positive effect on your well-being.

Research shows that journaling can help you:

  • reduce stress
  • keep your brain active
  • understand yourself better
  • clarify your thoughts and feelings
  • effectively solve problems
  • keep focused on daily tasks
  • reach your goals

Blogging is journaling that is shared with others.   There are definite benefits to blogging.  It helps you:

  • get your emotions out by putting them down on paper
  • think and listen better
  • practice your creative writing
  • connect with others who have similar interests
  • become motivated
  • expand your knowledge base
  • learn how to research topics
  • develop ideas

In my opinion, blogging is great therapy.  When you share your thoughts with other people and get positive feedback, it certainly can help boost your esteem.  Of course, you may get some negative feedback, but you have to accept that others may not always agree with you and you should consider it a learning experience.   Just keep your blogs informative, interesting and considerate of others.   Happy blogging!
