How does blogging help my mental health?

Keeping busy!

Blogging really helps my mental health because I am able to distract myself and it is something to keep me busy. I find that keeping myself distracted is really good for my mental health!

Connecting is really good for your mental health! Having friendships and relationships can benefit you massively! Therefore this is another reason as to why blogging helps my mental health. This is because, ever since I have started blogging, I have made so many more friends and connections which has made me feel really happy!

Helping Others!

I absolutely love to use my story to help others. Using my story not only helps others, but it helps me express myself and sometimes let it all out. It is also something I am considering job-wise as I love to take care of everyone.

Positive feedback!

Hearing feedback from my audience really helps with my mental health and self-esteem. I love hearing that I have helped someone, it makes my day!

  13. I couldn’t agree with you more! I started my blog last November when I was unable to walk for a 4 month period and it really helped me mentally and emotionally. Little did I know that I was going to need to blog even more in 2020. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Awh so glad it helps you too!!

  14. Yes! I started blogging just over 11 years ago to help me navigate the stress of being apart from my husband as we navigated the visa process for me to move to America. Now my writing helps me through many other stresses and I find it helps me make sense of the things going on around me, etc. Thank you so much for sharing this β€” really great!

    1. That’s so great to hear!! X

  15. Blogging is so good for my mental health πŸ™‚ I think it’s the fact that I can meet so many like-minded people, and when my posts do well I definitely get a kick! I think as well during lockdown it’s been nice to forget my own world, and enter the world of blogging as a kind of escapism! Thanks for sharing these thoughts, I might have to do a similar post in the future x

    1. So glad to hear blogging helps your mental health too! Thanks for reading xx

  18. This is awesome Demi, I am so glad that blogging has been helping your mental health! I started blogging during the first lockdown as a way to stay busy, and it has really helped give me some purpose! I have talked to quite a few other blogger since then that have similar stories to us!

    1. Yes me too I started around the same time x

  19. Blogging helps my mental health so much too!

  20. Totally agree with all of this. I love having a creative outlet, and even though there’s so much too it, I feel like I can switch off slightly with it.


  21. I love this because I can relate to it so much! Sometimes I wonder if having a blog is worth the cost and the time, and I have to remind myself why I started blogging in the first place. I had so many things I wanted to say filling up my head that I couldn’t focus on anything. I was so depressed and angry because I felt like I was never heard. Blogging let’s me be heard even if it’s only by 1 person. It’s given me the voice my community took away.

  22. Thank you for writing this post, Demi! Blogging becomes so addictive for me in the beginning so it affects my mental health. I took a few days off and back! I love being creative, creating useful content, connecting, etc. I thought it’s because I keep pushing myself until I feel so overwhelmed. Anyway, thank you for this positive insight x

    1. Yes, sometimes it’s good to take a break too< however it does really help me as well. Thanks for reading x

  23. You’re totally right! As I blog as a hobby, I find writing helps me take things off my mind and I love brainstorming ideas on what to write next, hoping my experience can help others! Great positive post! 😊


    1. Thank you for reading! Glad it helps you too x

  24. I connect with so much of what you say here! Writing helps me stay focused and it is wonderful to think sharing my experiences can often help others. Next to the writing, sharing is my next favorite aspect of blogging. πŸ™‚

    1. It definitely gives me a purpose and something to focus on! Thank you for reading! x

  25. This is great! I thought you were going to say blogging serves as a way to reflect, sort of like an online journal. Definitely can relate to all of the benefits of blogging you’ve listed, though. I’ve made so many online blogger friends! It also feels good when I get feedback that something I’ve written about catching-up retirement savings after a late start has inspired or helped someone else.

    1. Awh bless, thank you for reading! Sometimes blogging has negatives to it and can make my mental health worse, however, most of the time it is pretty good! πŸ™‚ x
