Journaling is such an underrated way to incorporate self care into your lifestyle. Often times we think that journaling MUST be done daily. Not necessarily. Whether it's journaling 10 minutes per day, every couple days, or once per week journaling can be a great way to focus on your self care.
Using encouraging prompts can really help you get your "journal life" going which is why we love the Self Care Made Easy 52-Week Journal. Not only does it include prompts, but also affirmations that you can use each week to set the tone.
You can discover so much about yourself when journaling. In fact, when you look back over a journal you have completed, you can see the growth & patterns that your life takes on.
Journaling has also been known to aid in overall mental health.
- manage anxiety
- reduce stress
- celebrate yourself
- ...and more!
Write in a place that's relaxing and soothing, maybe with a cup of tea or outdoors. Look forward to your journaling time- schedule it if you need to. And know that you're doing something good for your mind and body.
