Health & Wellness

The benefits of personal informal writing to health and wellness are indisputable. There is an increasing body of research that has measured positive outcomes and real change when people write for themselves. Published studies indicate improved recovery time from illness and trauma; reduced anxiety, stress, anger and other strong emotions; improved self-awareness and clarity; and more. Our favorite source for these studies is through James Pennebaker, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Texas, Austin, and author of Writing to Heal and The Secret Life of Pronouns. Please visit his website for a list of studies that demonstrate the postive outcomes of informal personal writing, which is also called journaling, reflective writing, or developmental writing.
