Sometimes we need a little boost to lift our mood so that we can keep growing, move forward or nourish our souls. Writing or journaling can be part of an effective self-care routine because it can give us time for reflection and goal setting.
Giving pause to think about things in our lives can be a great way to remind ourselves how far we’ve come or how impactful certain moments/people are to our journey. Journaling can be a way to share openly with others or privately to ourselves all the things that add to who we are and what we want out of life.
Journaling can be a way for us to tap into mindfulness and gratitude or help organize our thoughts and responses around events that are important to us. It can also be a way to acknowledge or share part of our lives with others and create space for cognizance and reflection.
