The practice of getting to know yourself isn’t always one of deep, spiritual soul-searching, sometimes it’s as simple as exploring the things that make you who you are.
This week, I encourage and inspire you to give a little time to yourself. For 10 or 15 minutes a day, use your journal to explore and appreciate what it’s like to be you.
Have fun with these easy list-making prompts and remember these three keys to a powerful journaling practice:
Hold space. Journaling is a mindful practice, so hold space and honor this time for yourself by being free from distraction and willing to listen to your heart and mind.
Write freely. Don’t judge or hold back from what pours onto the page. Let your thoughts flow unedited, trust your truth and channel your intuition.
Be creative. Express yourself in the pages of your journal and use your creativity to calm your mind.
