Everyone goes through difficult experiences in life. As a pilot, you’re no stranger to challenging times, especially the times we are currently living in. But dwelling on tough episodes can stop us from enjoying life and achieving what we want. Writing is a highly effective way of processing these episodes and our reactions to them, and at the same time, it frees us from the associated negative emotions. Putting our feelings into words produces therapeutic effects in the brain. In fact, medical research offers scientific evidence of the power of writing to maintain health and increase your physical wellness!

To get started, choose an issue or event that you want to deal with and write about it. Or simply record how your day went. Only minutes a day of writing can lead to better health, so set aside the time to write on a regular basis. If you just remember to journal once a week, you can still reap the benefits. Remember, all you need is a pencil and a piece of paper. Also, write something that you’re thankful for. When you focus on the positive, you’ll find the number of things you’re grateful for will increase.
