Creative Writing - Good for Your Health

"By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be." -Mark Victor Hansen

How do you find your way toward Good Health?

There are many ways to move toward good health. There are also many different kinds of health. The most obvious type of health is physical health. Creative Writing can help you figure out ways that you can improve your physical health, maybe not directly, but indirectly - you can write lists of the different aspects of physical health that you can work on, such as exercise, nutrition, finding time.

Spiritual good health is certainly helped by using Creative Writing. You can explore you own spiritual beliefs with your writing, using poetry, essays, stories. Many people write their way to good Spiritual health through their journalling, which is a non-threatening and non-judgmental way of exploring your ideas.


Emotional good health is also helped with journal writing. Working your way through issues that are causing emotional strife can lead you to solve these problems, and so show you better ideas for your emotional health.

If you follow Mark Victor Hansen's idea of recording you dream and goals, you will be putting in place plans that can solve so many issues that have been causing you trouble.

Once you start getting your thoughts down on paper for yourself, you are on your way to overall good health. If you keep a journal, those thoughts will always be there to show you what you've been doing wrong, how you worked out ideas to make things better, and the good results of your work.

Begin a journal today, and you will be on your Personal Path to Better Health.

Journalling definitely has helped me when I had no-one to listen to my pain & problems, it's a coping tool for sure...these days though, I'm working on finding who I am beyond thoughts and old pain. Meditating on that is helping me find real inner peace -I am not my pain or my identity...
