8 Benefits of guided journaling

Updated: Apr 14

Journaling shifts the way we look at our behaviours and barriers. It also impacts how we move through our daily life. The act of putting deep thoughts and feelings onto paper is brave and bold. But sometimes the thought of facing a blank page can be intimidating. Instead of being calming and restorative, it can start to feel like an assignment that we want to run from and avoid.


Using journal prompts eases this anxiety by providing meaningful writing guidance. These prompts can be focused on the specific barrier that you are trying to overcome, such as building confidence, reducing anxiety, finding your purpose or healing trauma.


Here are some of the ways that journaling is a really powerful tool in overcoming blocks, barriers and limiting self-belief systems:


  1. Guided journaling helps you explore your inner world and understand how your upbringing and past experiences affect who you are today.

  2. Guided journaling allows you to observe your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours from an objective perspective. With practice, you can learn to select and manipulate them. You can become the master of your own self and your own mind.

  3. Guided journaling helps you become more mindful and intentional about how you live your life.

  4. Guided journaling helps you change your patterns as it provides a framework for you to set goals and follow through with actionable steps.

  5. Guided journaling helps you relax as it takes your mind off the busy-ness of life.

  6. Guided journaling helps you turn life experiences into valuable lessons and wisdom.

  7. Guided journaling helps you gain acceptance of self and love for you and your journey.

  8. Guided journaling helps you grow and expand.
