I find getting things out of my head and onto some paper can be really beneficial to my state of mind. It means I don’t need to use precious brain space remembering it or fretting.
I’m a bit compulsive about keeping lists, to-do lists, shopping lists, things to remember etc. I can pretty much make a list about anything.
But I tend to forget to write down my thoughts and feelings because it takes a little more effort than simply writing a list. And for some reason I always think I need to be formal when I’m journaling, as if anyone is going to read it but me! 😀
How many of us have a special place at home or in the garden to relax, read, jot down your thoughts, listen to some music - or just daydream? I guess not so many, so lets change it! Give yourself a special gift and create your own cosy corner.
