Can journaling change your life?

Let’s face it, self-care can get expensive. With all the latest therapies and gadgets, it’s easy to get lost and confused.

You’ve likely heard a lot about the practice of journaling and perhaps wondered, what’s all the fuss about?

Keeping a journal is one of the easiest (and cheapest) forms of self-care, and you don’t even have to do it daily. Even the odd 10-15 minute free-writing session can have a positive impact. Journaling is a great tool for improving your mental health and shifting your mindset to a place of abundance and gratitude.

Some Benefits of Journaling…

~Lowers Stress & Anxiety: acknowledging your emotions on paper allows you to move on faster and with a clear mind
~Helps to reframe negative emotions = improved mood
~Increased happiness through acknowledging gratitude
~Heightened Creativity: unleashing your deepest thoughts and ideas
~Better Sleep: free your mind of your distracting thoughts before bed; writing down what went well that day sets the tone for deep and peaceful sleep

If free’ writing from your stream of consciousness isn’t your thing, here are some prompts to consider when writing in your journal:
~who makes me happy
~what went well today
~what are two things I am grateful for
~what is something you love about yourself
~how are you feeling right now
~what is a cool idea you had today

Pro tip- if you want to take your journaling to the next level, try writing with your non dominant hand and tap into your inner child.
