Ah, on to our next tip.
To yourself, to others, to imaginary people. Writing, for me, has helped me curb a lot of frustration and anger I've had in my life. I honestly think that if I had never written for myself, I would be more anxious, stressed, and pretty much completely insane. (I mean, I still am, but, at a more decreased level than if I wouldn't have..) You don't even have to be good at it, which is why I like it so much. Just express what you feel, and as accurately as possible on that piece of paper. Write letters to family or friends- the letter is now an act of kindness and is surprising for the people who receive it, and they appreciate the time it took for you to write it.
Here's some activities that you can do:
- Write a letter
- Keep a journal, write in it daily
- Write a short story, or novel
- Just write for a minute straight, never letting your pencil come off the paper
- Write a poem, song, etc.
