Do you write down your thoughts when feeling stressed or angry? Not only can this process make you feel better, but when you read your notes back you may find gold nuggets of inspiration which can be used in a writing piece to help others too.

Stressful and difficult situations can influence you into writing some great blog content, for example, you might draft a brilliant ‘how to’ blog after successfully mastering some new software, or getting through a difficult interview. Here are 6 other situations that someone might find themselves in, together with the perfect blog titles that can be born from them:

Situation Suggested blog title
If you are forced to do something you don’t want to do How to say no and mean it
If you are stressed because the plane is late Ways to pass the time at airports
If you are fed up with your job and don’t know how to get out of it. How to love your day job
If you find it stressful completing your tax return How to complete your tax return in 10 easy steps
If you have ever felt guilty about leaving your children with a child minder when you go to work 8 feel good tips for working mums
If you let conflict upset you How to conquer conflict

Remember: Your struggle can help someone else not to struggle, and if you write things down as they happen, these notes can be later shaped into a masterpiece.

Obviously it’s not only stressful situations that you can learn from; equally if something went well, this can give you lots of ideas too. Good luck!

Until tomorrow…
