Writing helps you cope with turmoil
Writing about a distressing or upsetting experience can help you cope better.
Putting feelings into words is cathartic, scientists have found.
The findings, from a research team at theUniversity of California, Los Angeles, suggest that one of the main reasons we write things down – from keeping adiaryto composingpoetry– is that it brings peace of mind and relievesstress.
‘When people sit down to write, they may not know exactly why, but there seems to be this benefit,’ head of the research team, Dr Matthew Lieberman told theAmerican Association for the Advancement of Scienceconference in Chicago.
The research suggests that writing therapy could help people suffering from psychological conditions such associal anxiety disorder, phobiasorpost-traumatic stressand even be developed into therapies for sufferers.
Dr Lieberman explained: ‘What it boils down to is the right ventrolateral prefrontal cortex, which seems to be involved in self-control and self-regulation. Putting feelings into words is one of the things that turns this region on, and therefore has regulatory benefits.’
The researchers warned, though, that the success of writing things down depends on the way in which they’re written about.
