The Many Mental Health Benefits of Journaling

Did you know that there are so many mental health benefits you can get from journaling? At Avalon Malibu, we strongly believe in the importance of journaling and we even use this tool in some of our therapeutic settings. In this blog, we’re going to go over the mental health benefits of journaling.

The Benefits of Journaling

Let’s dive in and go over some of the mental health benefits that you can get from journaling. Before we get started, it’s important to remember that everyone’s mental health situation is unique and what works for one person may not work well for another. Let’s go and discuss why you should consider journaling!


Finding ways to relax can be hard, but journaling is a great way to take your mind off of things and focus on the task in front of you. If you’re struggling to relax lately, then you should consider buying a journal or finding a journaling app. It can be a great way to unwind at the end of the day and help distract your mind if you’re feeling stressed, so consider adding this step to your bedtime routine.

Stress Reduction

Reducing stress can be beneficial for both your body and your mind. Have you considered journaling for this great purpose? When you’re journaling, consider writing about the things that are causing you stress. You may find that this is a welcome release and that it helps you work through any complicated emotions you may be feeling.

Symptom Tracking

Keeping track of mental health symptoms can be difficult. Did you know that journaling is a way you can do this? At Avalon Malibu, we encourage our clients to journal because it can be a great way of keeping track of how you’re feeling. When you’re speaking with your mental health provider, you may be able to reference your journal when thinking of a specific date or time.
