Carrying on from my last blog, did you know that keeping a diary lightens your mood and reduces stress ?
Studies have shown that people who keep diaries:
- are admitted to hospital less often and spend fewer days when they are admitted, than those who do not
- have better liver function and blood pressure
- have improved immune systems.
Also, besides the positive effects of writing something about yourself every day, people who regularly keep ‘gratitude diaries’ (which are exactly what they say on the tin …. a place to record things that you are grateful for) report increased satisfaction with their lives and relationships.
So put pen to paper and feel better !
