Creating the habit to write your thought will support your growth. It is a healthy habit for all, healing or opening to your creativity.
Let’s chat about journaling.
Just reading this title and first sentence, I invite you to observe your first reaction:
Which thoughts came up?
Any change in your feelings?
How your body moved or not?
Do not try to analyze your reaction. Stop right now and keep reading before creating overthinking.
Thank you 🙂
I tried it too….many times… and one day I just did it.
I stopped trying and simply acted on my intention to care for myself.
I read so much, so much about intuitive writing, about journaling, about all that people had to say on this subject of “writing my thoughts”. I am grateful to everyone for sharing their own experiences and perspectives on the subject.
Now let’s re-center on you.
First, I am asking you to de-attach from all of that. Allow yourself to be receptive and listen.
My proposition is:
Today you start practicing writing. You as a human body are going to train yourself to write everyday. Here & Now, we are taking the point of view of your body.
Intention : I am training my body to write.
Guidance : One day, one page, one date, one word.
Tools needed : a notebook and a pen (Tools you can find easily and for cheap, no excuses here)
Position: Sitting (so easy)
Timespace: From a few seconds to infinity
Mode of action:
Situation – During your day (morning, evening, mid-morning, toilet time, transportation time, stretch time, bed time, mid-afternoon, whatever), at one moment, you sit, you pick up a pen, you open the notebook to the first blank page available…
Step 1 – Now, wait for it, write today’s date (yes like the school teacher)
Step 2 – Now, write at least one word.
Step 3 – Observe how well you’ve done with yourself today: yeah you did it! what you observe is : “I am writing for myself”
Step 4 – Now that you read it all, why not doing it now? Because reading this article takes longer than actually writing today’s date and 1 word. So yes (I answer your question) you have the time to do it.
Step 5 : Do it everyday.
If you forget, it’s ok. Just observe you don’t remember doing it so help yourself by setting a specific moment for it. During your day there are a few moves you always do: you wake up, you go to the toilets, you wash, you eat, you go to bed. Now add I write before of after one of these obvious day habits.
Be creative in creating your own support.
I love you,
