Combat Your Chaos, Journal Your Way Out:

Being a joy expert in such a time as this can come with some stigma attached to it. People assume because I am joyful it means I have no chaos in my life. I am here to report that is not the case. The good news, there is a simple yet powerful way for you to combat your chaos, inside and out. 

My favorite way is to put pen to paper – to journal. Here are 4 Journal Tips for you to choose from. I recommend you pick one. 

1. Write Daily For 5 To 15 Minutes:

The thing about putting pen to paper that is important is you need to do it daily long term for it to really work. It takes a lot of writing and insight to figure out why you’re dealing with chaos and how to overcome it. 

Journal Every Single Angle:

2. Write About Your Worries:

“If it’s generalized chaos, try to make a list of things that might be contributing.”

Go straight to the problem and write about your worries. Describe them from every single angle you can come up with. In addition, the more descriptive, the better. Go back to the first time you felt this feeling regarding this topic. So that you can get to the bottom of it.

3. Describe What’s Happening Now:

Put out of your mind what you did, what someone else did, or what can be done. -Right now write about precisely what is happening at this moment and where you stand with the issue causing your chaos. If it’s generalized chaos, try to make a list of things that might be contributing. 

Overcome It:

4. Document The Best That Can Happen:

Let’s get serious by thinking about and writing about the very best (realistic) outcome of the situation you’re thinking about. Journal potential steps and tactics to achieve this best-case scenario so that you can see it to fruition if you so choose. 

It’s surprising that writing can accomplish so much, but if you go into putting pen to paper to help with chaos under the right attitude and with a goal in mind, you can achieve a lot including calm. The important thing is that you need to be honest with yourself so that you can find out the true causes of your chaos. In this way, the actions you take to overcome it really are effective.
