Welcome back to the monthly journaling series! If you’re on my email list then you heard that between my husband and I building a house from the ground up and welcoming our son, Henry, in to the world last August, our hands have been full trying to juggle all of the things. Ever since becoming a mama, I’ve been trying to figure out how to build a business all while still being present for my son.
With everything swirling around, it can be easy to get caught up in it all and forget to breathe. This season of life has been a tough one emotionally, and I haven’t picked up my journal at all. Which could be part of the reason everything feels so jumbled in my head!
I’m truly looking forward to getting back in to a routine of journaling. It really is an amazing place to confess struggles, express fears, and explore thoughts or emotions in a judgement free zone. Getting your emotions out of your head can help you gain clarity of current and past life situations.
Feeling in control of your well-being and life is vital when it comes to mental health. I highly encourage you to make journaling a priority in your life too.
And remember, journaling can take on many forms – it doesn’t have to be just putting pen to paper writing down your daily thoughts. There isn’t any one size fits all method when it comes to keeping a journal. Here are a few ways you can switch it up:
- Use the bullet method
- Paint or draw
- Take photographs
- Skip the pen & paper all together and go digital by recording yourself
Explore different mediums and see what speaks to you.
