Reflecting and clarifying… Enjoy a tea moment while journaling, it’s a great way to relax and reflect about what is going on around you and inside you.
How can Journaling help?
- relieve stress – let it all pour out
- understand your feelings and reactions more clearly
- shed awareness on how the past is colouring the present
- clarify your thoughts, generate an alternative perspective
As children, our teachers often had us practice our penmanship by writing in a daily journal. Or perhaps you had a diary where you wrote your private thoughts and then hid it under your mattress to insure no sneaky sibling or parent would read.
Did you know? Journaling has been scientifically proven to help with asthma, arthritis, and improve your cognitive function and immune system.
What do you need to start journaling?
- Pen and paper or computer
- 10 to 20 minutes a day (start with a sentence or 2 daily & soon your thoughts will easily flow – just write what comes to mind – you might be surprised)
“It’s not in the rereading that one finds solace but in the writing itself. It’s like crying—you don’t know why, but you feel so much better afterward. Everything pours, streams, flows, out of you aimlessly,” writes Samara O’Shea
Why not make yourself some tea in your Libre Tea Glass and sit down to write your thoughts about the day – How did it start, what did you like, what would you change, what will you do different tomorrow, how are you feeling right now…
These are your private thoughts and your feelings so be sure to find a safe and secure spot to keep your journal.
