Welcome to Unchained Literature…
Have you ever found your mind stuck in what feels like an endless loop? One thought follows another rapidly and yet you find yourself standing or sitting in the same space, unsure of how or why things haven’t changed when you’ve exerted so much energy?
Chances are that all of us have experienced the pressure of mentally drowning at some time or another. We are living in a wave of thoughts ever moving and adapting. As we find ourselves restricted and feeling powerless to effect as much change as we would like, it is important that we find ways to ensure our own mental health and stability. It’s important that we learn to live in harmony with our thoughts and with the flow of being a perceiving, thinking, and feeling kind of being.
Unchained Literature believes in utilising the power of reading and writing to support mental health improvement and maintenance. This blog comes to life to support and empower others, encouraging them to read and write in a way that can support mental wellbeing across the lifespan.
The Unchained Literature Tribe works to provide practical advice for using literature and various writing styles to support positive mental health.
These aims are in conjunction to supporting and encouraging the use of literature and writing in therapeutic practice. Unchained Literature is also excited to offer promotional camaraderie for success and wider exposure (concerning publishing authors).
