How useful are ''mental health journals''? Cuz they are pricy as f


Recommended Posts

20 euros for 75 pages (2 months)! **** YOU CROATIA!

 

Though, if I got my hands on that one and the anti stress one, I'd shamelessly photocopy them because I'm not paying 20 euros every 2 months for a ******* journal.

Have you ever used those?

Are they of any use?

 

If you know me, I had a big of a oopsie last year on exhale and I got scars from that night...Maybe 20 euros of investment isn't that bad. But its 20 ******* euros.

No, I dont have a psychiatrist so I cant ask anyone else about this.

I'm doing prayers, meditation, contact with friends, having a tourmaline crystal in my hand before going to bed (I got rid of headache and fever during illness many times thanks to it), trying to feel only love for others and possibly neutrality towards bad people and being able to forgive.

Pricey journals can definitely sting the wallet, but I've found mental health journals to be worth their weight in gold.  It's like having a safe space to dump your brain on paper, sort through your emotional laundry, and identify any recurring patterns.  Sometimes, just the act of putting pen to paper can be incredibly cathartic.
MentalHealth.com has some free printable templates you can use if you don't want to buy a fancy journal.  But even a blank notebook can work wonders!
The key is finding a format that works for you.  Bullet points, mind maps, whatever helps you unpack your thoughts and feelings.

Yeah, I know, mental health journals can be pretty expensive. In my experience, though, they can be really helpful if you're into journaling or find writing therapeutic. They can help you track your moods, thoughts, and behaviors, which can be useful for identifying patterns and triggers. If cost is a concern, you might want to look into online resources or apps that offer similar journaling features for free or at a lower cost. Also, consider reaching out to nationalrehabhotline.org or other mental health resources for more affordable alternatives or suggestions.

I suck at journaling but the one you see on TikTok and You Tube- full of stickers and tapes, in 100 colors per page.

I just slam text and don't give a single **** about the aesthetics of it.

 

An example I'd never be capable of (due to laziness, lack of creativity, being naturally messy and all over the place): 

 

 

Even if you have me 10 boxes of colors and stickers, I'd still be to ignorant to do it. It looks nice though. Not sure are those useful. I feel like they are doing this crap for aesthetics only.
