Journaling What is journal therapy? I strongly recommend journaling in addition to your therapeutic process. Journaling is a place to express your feelings and in a private, safe manner. Journaling is a tool for personal discovery and growth and for people who want to heal themselves. There is not a right or wrong way to keep a journal, it doesn’t matter if you can spell or you are not a writer. The purpose is to have a place to express your feelings and emotions uncensored. What are some uses for journal writing?
Taking time for yourself
Recording personal history
Getting over a relationship
Feeling what you are trying to verbalize
Anger you are trying to work out
Keeping a record for your future
Track cycles, patters, and trends in your life
An extra therapeutic tool
How can I get started? Here are a few ideas.
Find something to write in and a comfortable writing utensil.
Find a comfortable place to write
Start with a meditation or a prayer
Date each entry
Just start writing- write quickly
Tell the whole truth
Write naturally, do not be concerned with grammar or spelling.
More information to come shortly.... PRIVACY- please protect your privacy!! Your journal is only to share if you choose to. KEEP YOUR JOURNAL IN A PRIVATE PLACE OR LOCK BOX.
