Let Go Paper ™ Pathway to Better Mental Health
Introduction to Mental Health
Good Mental Health means striking a balance in all aspects of your life: social, physical, spiritual, economic and mental. Reaching a balance is a learning process. When we find ourselves deprived of a certain aspect, or off-balance to a significant degree, the resulting affect could adversely affect our mental health and, if ignored, could sometimes lead to mental illness.
People display signs of their mental well-being in different areas of their lives, in a variety of ways. Although we may function well in one setting (ie: at home or with family), we may have problems when exposed to other settings, such at work, at social events, with our peers, or even when we are alone.
From time to time we all face anxious moments, sadness, grief – it is part of being human. When these feelings or emotions burden us to the point that it affects our daily lives, our daily routine and becomes impacting our decisions and the lives of our loved ones we should recognize the need to seek help.
Mental health is not simply the avoidance of serious mental illness, but maintaining good health. Your mental health is affected by numerous factors from your daily life, including workplace stress, relationships, children, parents, peers, financial pressures, sicknesses and so on. Maintaining good mental health means having a positive, healthy means of finding an emotional release from the factors that hold us down, hold us back and cause us internal suffering.
Often much of what is holding us back, holding us down and affecting our mental health, is a result of emotional baggage we have withheld for long periods of time; experiences and memories we are not able to share or be open about; feelings we are simply unable to or comfortable enough to express.
A Pathway to Better Mental Health
Each persons’ situation is different, as such their needs, especially their mental health needs, might be different. However, when given an opportunity – to positively express outwardly the feelings that burden us inwardly – science and psychologists have shown the results are dramatic on both the individual’s short term and long term health.1
Writing or journaling has been a means of mental health relief for centuries. Recent breakthrough studies by Harvard Medical School and UCLA Neuroimaging have proven that putting feelings into words produces a therapeutic effect in the brain. The process of expressive writing has been proven to help better regulate emotions, reduce stress and anxiety, increase relaxation, increase confidence, increase physical health, improve work habits, and most importantly let go and move beyond experiences that cause emotional distress or inhibition.2 It is proven to help us let go, and get back to living the life we want.
Let Go Paper ™ is a system, based on a 2500 year old Buddhist teaching of “mindfulness”, designed to help people express themselves through a means of personal reflection, expressive writing and, most importantly, a unique means of peacefully and soothingly letting it go.3
How Let Go Paper ™ works?
Mindfulness is a technique, practiced through meditation and self-reflection, in which one pays attention to his or her present emotions and thoughts, without passing judgment or reacting. An individual simply releases his thoughts and “lets it go.”4
The Let Go Paper ™ system gives any person easy access to the process of mindfulness meditation and self-reflection, allows them to write down their feelings in a safe environment and let go of these emotions, in a healthy manner, by wilfully, peacefully dissolving Let Go Paper ™ in water.
Why it works?
While journaling and writing down inner feelings has been a well-practiced means of therapy, the knowledge of that someone might read our most sensitive, private and often hurtful thoughts, emotions and memories leads to either constant fear or the need to destroy the evidence. Fear only burdens us further, and destruction through burning, ripping apart or shredding only increases stressful, and destructive, and therefore further negative emotions.
Let Go Paper ™ is specially made paper that has the ability to instantly dissolve in water. Unlike regular paper, which turns to a mushy pulp when wet, Let Go Paper ™ dissolves without a trace. The Let Go Paper ™ system, allows individuals to face their fears, insecurities, emotional baggage, write it down and personally and therapeutically dissolve it in a bowl of water, while stirring it themselves till it disappears. It helps them let go.
Water signifies life, purity, calmness, forgiveness and cleansing. Our mission at Let Go Paper ™ is to help people find this calmness, forgiveness and cleansing – find a positive emotional release.
The entire system, from the reflection questions, process of expressive writing and the emotional release and therefore letting go, of what holds us back has been proven to help people let go of negative emotions and begin the healing process.
Some of the known benefits include:
- Improved emotional and mental health
- Reduced stress
