✒Start by writing 3 things you are grateful for every day. That’s it. If you want to write more, great. If you don’t, no worries. A gratitude practice is the easiest to start with, plus it’s got a lot of benefits!
✒Use journalling prompts to give you that extra boost and channel your writing in a specific way.
✒Try free writing for fun. It’s like word vomit on a page. It’s an excellent tool if you need to get out of your own head. It will often give you some coherent thoughts on the page in hindsight too.
Most importantly, have fun with it. There’s no pressure, no one is going to see this journal except you and if you are scared with what’s going to come up on the page..that’s usually an indication that you need to give voice to the thought that scares you anyway! Face it head on and you’ll move past it sooner.
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
