Have You Ever Heard About The Fear Journal?

Updated: Oct 15, 2021

Journalling has become quite popular as a self-care tool; although, have you ever heard about the fear journal? If you feel stuck and love writing things down to organize your thoughts, a "fear journal" could be a great addition to your writer collection.

What is a fear journal?

A fear journal might sound a little hideous, but it's not. Exploring your fears and where they come from is the first step to make them less daunting.

When is it helpful?

While experiencing some degree of fear is considered normal, if it stops you from enjoying activities or progress in life, it is time to take action and put your fears into perspective instead of allowing them power over your life.

Writing your fears on paper can help you reduce the anxiety stemming from them and develop alternative thinking patterns.

Taking the time to explore and identify what's hidden behind your fears enables you to see things from a different perspective.

"One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises,

is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do." Henry Ford
