If you are not doing this yet, then this is the time to start.
There is a huge list of benefits to incorporating journaling into your mental health routine. But starting a journal is just too scary for some.
So here is an easy way to begin any day you need it.
- Find a piece of paper, your note pad on your mobile, a notebook, a blog post… anything will work so don´t get caught up on this part.
- Grab a pen, pencil, crayon, keyboard, lipstick…
- Now dump every thought swimming around in that brain of yours in point form, sentences, doodles, CAPITAL LETTERS…
You don’t need to share it with anyone. You don’t need to make it into a piece of artwork. And there is zero need to judge anything that comes out.
Just take this first step in allowing yourself to vent.
Once it becomes a habit, then YES, there are many things you can do with the info but just start with giving yourself permission to do this.
Dare yourself to do it once and see how it goes.
Note: To my clients who are sending me PMs with their dumps right now… you are amazing!
