(Newswire.net -- March 20, 2017) Wilmington, DELAWARE -- Keeping a diary has been thought to be helpful in keeping track of one’s highs and lows. However, it appears that there are more possible advantages in doing this therapeutic activity.
Diarizing is believed to offer some significant health benefits. People who keep diaries are often able to express themselves fully in writing. It allows one to maintain a sense of optimism and be excited about reaching goals and aspirations.
Professor James Pennebaker, from the University of Texas in Austin, has actually conducted many experiments on the potential health benefits linked with expressive writing. It has been found that regular writing may help to enhance the immune system and help the body recover from certain traumatic events successfully. It has also been found to ease depression and stress.
In this research, the participants who survived traumatic events put into writing the experiences they had for 20 minutes per day. They were instructed to do this four times a week.
It was found that those who kept a diary visited their healthcare provider half as much as those who did not write. These writers of journal also demonstrated a stronger antibody response to viruses and bacteria, as well as, produced less of the stress hormone called cortisol.
The Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that also found rheumatoid arthritis sufferers as well as those with asthma experienced a significant decrease in RA symptoms.
The participants who experienced the improvements wrote about the life events that they found to be extremely stressful. One of the best things about writing is that it can do more than just providing the feeling of being better.
Students were instructed to write about emotional topics, and it was found that their grades improved. The absentee rates also spiraled down in a group of university staff members after writing about experiences and about their emotions.
Experts suggest that this may be due to the effects of sitting down and writing about the emotions and thoughts crammed inside their heads. It forces them to reflect and place these thoughts in some kind of order. Thus, they were able to get a sense of mastery of the situation they were in.
There is no rule of thumb in writing a diary. As a matter of fact, people only need to have a journal and a pen to do it. Using colored pens can also add life to a diary.
