Here are some things to think about as you get ready to journal. Keep in mind, there really is no right or wrong way to journal.
Choose a space where you can write down your thoughts undisturbed.
Choose to write using a paper and a pen or pencil. Put these in a place where you can easily find them later.
If you like to write with music, choose some songs that help you reflect to write and are not distracting that make you get lost in singing along with the lyrics!
Give yourself at least 15 minutes to respond to the prompt or free write.
Take a few moments, maybe time yourself for 5 minutes, close your eyes and think about the prompt. Write down what comes up for you with the remaining time that you have.
Write what comes to mind or what is coming up for you. If you’re not feeling the prompt, choose to free write or re-word the question so that it feels better to you.
Grab a pen, paper, your mug or water, and #writewithme.
What does being grateful look like, feel like, and sound like to you?
