This is not a guide to journaling, but a few tips on how to make it fun and how you can use it as an aid to your wellness. Journaling works because it helps to remove yourself from situations and view them objectively.
1. Give Thanks In all things, give thanks. Practicing gratitude is an act of self care. Being thankful shifts your mindset from one of scarcity to one of abundance.
2. Make it unique to you
3. Use your journal to explore your feelingsWe all have off moments, or in some cases, off days. So many things that have happened to us stay with us for a long time. It is important not to internalize these negative, heavy feelings. What better way to observe than to put it all out before you and examine. This is the time for you to be yourself. You're free of judgment.
4. Clear your mind
We're not talking about the time Spongebob tossed out file cabinets of material in his mind.
We're talking about quieting the noise! Write down your to do lists and ideas running though your head and just shelf all that overthinking. Silence is beautiful.
5. Don't forget your dreams!“What would you do if you weren’t afraid?” Write about things you want to accomplish. No, it's not pointless! With time, manifesting your dreams will help you to grow the confidence you need to accomplish your goals!
