Doodling in a notebook, writing in a diary…what if I told you that those schoolkid activities were actually really powerful for your brain?
When we put pen to paper and let our hand go, we are able to access our subconscious mind in a truly incredible way. Journaling also connects us to our inner child and pulls in the energy of our Adult, bringing clarity to our lives and helping us connect to who we are, what we need, what we feel and what we want.
It’s absolutely incredible what can happen when we get a stream of energy flowing through our words!
In this episode, I’m sharing with you why journaling is such a powerful tool for transformation and the many benefits it can bring into your life. Journaling is a big part of The Adult Chair® – from the annual 30-Day Journaling Challenge to the self-discovery work in the membership – and today’s show is all about the WHY behind it.
I also give you some practical tips for how to overcome blocks and get started with a journaling practice + some free tools if you need extra guidance.
Listen to discover:
- What journaling is
- The many benefits of journaling
- Why journaling can be a powerful tool while doing parts work
- How to journal and get started with a journaling practice
- How to protect your privacy while journaling
The important thing is not how or when you journal, but making a commitment to journal! There are so many different ways and places to journal, but it’s when journaling becomes a practice that true transformation begins.
Remember, it is self-loving to take 15 or 30 minutes a day to reconnect with and care for yourself. So, get yourself a pretty notebook (if that’s your thing), leave your phone in the other room and find a writing ritual that makes you feel refreshed and loved. I promise that your life will transform!
