The act of writing what's in our stressed-out minds allows a feeling of calmness and mindfulness to wash over us. When we read back over our notes, we are able to get some distance from our actions and begin to see things with new eyes. Problems become challenges and solutions begin to present themselves. Self-analysis and positive self-talk are much easier when you have first clarified your experiences in words written on paper.
