Kati, could you maybe do a video on journaling? How do you start, what do you write about? Is there any direction, or just what's on your mind? What if your mind is blank?
Journaling doesn’t have to be like keeping a diary. It could just be tracking your mood or symptoms or even just bullet points of things you did that day. I usually have my patients do it to either see how well the tools we are trying out are working or to give them a place to vent all they may be feeling or going through. However, it doesn’t work for everyone and if you find it making your ruminating thoughts worse, you may want to stop and try something else. There are also books/journals you can buy with writing prompts. I will link some good ones in the description! If you don’t find writing about things to be easy or even possible, it can also work to create art while you process through your day in your mind. Like painting, working clay, or making music. Like I said before, the whole goal of journaling is to either track symptoms, but when it comes to using it as a way to vent how we feel and what are going through you may need to try out a few options.
