Regular journal writers and diarists rely on their writing to help them keep their emotions in perspective; this book distills the best emotional benefits of regular personal writing into a series of engaging and easy-to-practice writing exercises.

Journaling can help balance and regulate your emotions. This book, a guided journal, combines the benefits of journaling practice with sound and practical advice. It gives you information, ideas, and active exercises that can help you feel more comfortable and directed in your emotional life.

While exploring these writing exercises, you’ll discover how to understand the processes of your own emotional system and how to think clearly about your feelings as they happen. As a result, you’ll experience a greater sense of flexibility within yourself and an ongoing confidence in how you live with your emotions.

Learn and Practice the Seven Essential Skills of Emotion Management:

  • Distance yourself from your emotions
  • Define what your emotions mean for you
  • Release blocked and conflicted feelings
  • Regain focus while experiencing overwhelming emotions
  • Use structure and organization to clarify feelings
  • Regroup after an emotional set back
  • Maintain your new skills and incorporate them into your life

Synopsis:

A psychologist with an expertise in journal therapy, guides the reader through exercises designed to develop skills to manage out-of-control emotions, mood swings, anger, grief, depression, and mania. By teaching the reader to name emotions, use expressive writing to explore the roots of emotion, and track emotional states, the reader learns to express feelings and emotions in appropriate and healthy ways.

Synopsis:

When you've decided you canít take it any more, it helps a great deal to know what it actually is. The process of writing about overwhelming emotions is a remarkably effective means of creating clarity and perspective in your life. Regular journal writers and diarists rely on their writing to help them keep their emotions in perspective; this book distills the best emotional benefits of regular personal writing into a series of engaging and easy-to-practice writing exercises.

This book begins by helping readers explore why they were drawn to journaling in the first place and what their goals are for their writing experiments. Short projects help readers name their emotions, distancing them from overwhelming feelings so that they can react more constructively. Other exercises work to help readers interpret emotions from different perspectives. By learning to gauge their emotional reactions on a 'feelings barometer,' readers will come to understand the perceived strength of an emotion. Further exercises encourage readers to discover emotional triggers, write an emotional history, and connect physical and emotional responses. By practicing these exercises, readers will develop a language of positive imagery that will enhance comfort and peace of mind.
