"Writing Saved My Life” with Alex Elle

Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra

Science & Medicine

On this week’s episode of Looking Up, we embrace the therapeutic qualities and emotional benefits of writing with successful poet and published author, Alex Elle, who has overcome a number of her own hardships throughout her life by way of writing. You may recognize some of her work from the widely popular “Notes to Self” series, where she posts thousands of self affirmations and quotes as a reminder that we are human and capable of healing. Not only do we talk about the importance of writing, but also the importance of reparenting ourselves, teaching our children the necessity of mental wellbeing, and allowing space for joy. Grab a pen and some paper, this episode will inspire you to simply want to write.
