Suara.com – Talking about pregnancy and motherhood, apart from the joy of waiting and caring for children, a first-time mother also often experiences various mental problems such as anxiety. This is also experienced by supermodel, Gigi Hadid.
Since the arrival of her now 10-month-old daughter, Khai, the supermodel has gradually opened up more and more about her journey to motherhood. On the new cover of Harper’s Bazaar, she discusses pregnancy anxiety and more specifically, how her old habits save her from her nagging thoughts.
“During pregnancy, I had one journal which I called my good journal and one journal which I called bad journal. They are not so literal, but one is more for memories, for Khai,” Hadid told Harper’s Bazaar.
She writes in a lousy journal as she calls it for the days when her anxiety flares up, causing her to doubt whether she’s really fit to be a mother or not.

“[Itu untuk] my anxiety and days where I feel like, ‘Am I good enough to be a mom?’,” Gigi said.
On the other hand, she wrote a good journal on her best days during pregnancy.
Sitting, thinking and writing are Gigi’s favorite ways to deal with her thoughts and emotions, as well as hobbies she took up long before quarantine. Having a channel to release her anxiety had a positive effect on her giving birth to Khai. He became more in control and calm.
Meanwhile, there are many studies showing that journaling can be beneficial for both physical and mental health.
“Journaling is a meditation practice that can help you sort out your emotions and prioritize the parts of your life,” explains Melissa Divaris Thompson, a licensed holistic psychotherapist.
