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.
Depending on what's happening in our lives, it can sometimes be difficult to reflect on what we're working through and remind ourselves of how far it is we've actually come. We all need moments where we get to pause and celebrate what has gone well and consider any progress made, especially if we're in the middle of some kind of struggle.
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.
