You do not have to be a writer to journal. The goal of our journaling process is to get you out of your head. You know that place where you don’t stop thinking? Getting thoughts on to paper is a way to remember how you are feeling, remember events or things people said, to set goals, and to coach yourself through life.
Journaling doesn’t have to be a narrative. It can be drawings, maps, words on page. The most important thing is that they are not just thoughts.
- When your do not know what to write – start with the phrase, “I do not know what to write today because…”
- Try to use one emotion your are feeling in the moment.
- Try to describe a situation that recently occurred, a video you watched, a new song.
It won’t be long until you are actually writing fresh thoughts in the moment.
