Write your cares away

February 23, 2018

 

I've never been a big fan of journaling. Not sure why. Maybe one of my sisters read my diary when I was little and it scarred me for life. (Just kidding ;-)

 

So, I write today's post admitting I've never really journaled. I've tried it a few times, but it never quite clicked. But that doesn't mean YOU shouldn't have a go at it.

 

There's a LOT of research that shows journaling has a positive impact on physical well-being. Here are some of the proven impacts:

 

1. Stretches Your IQ

2. Evokes Mindfulness

3. Helps you Achieve Goals

4. Fosters Emotional Intelligence

5. Boosts Memory and Comprehension

6. Strengthens Your Self-Discipline

7. Improves Communication Skills

8. Heals

9. Sparks Your Creativity

10. Builds Self-Confidence

 

So, to quote the famous words, "do as I say, not as I do," give journaling a try. It may be wonderful for you. Just remember to start easy. Patience and consistency are crucial in forming new habits. Begin writing perhaps three days a week, first thing in the morning or before sleeping.

 

And if you don't want to try journaling, try tapping instead. Not sure what tapping (or EFT) is? Google it. It's a wonderful tool, too. 

 

So write, write, write or tap, tap, tap!

 

 

P.S. Tapping is not a dance step ;-) Although I find it funny that my very first dancing recital when I was little was tap dancing to "Put on a happy face." Maybe even back then I knew tapping was connected to happiness?  ;-)
