My Favorite Self-Care Practice Right Now

My Favorite Self-Care Practice Right Now

Hi dear friends! 

I want to talk to you about the importance of care and the practice that I am heavily relying on, right now, in these very turbulent times.

Now more than ever, it’s crucial that we embrace the concept of self-care. Our health; mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually, matters greatly. Life is presenting stressors, curveballs, and uncertainties, and we must take responsibility for ourselves and do as much as we can to stay grounded, calm, and centered.

There are so many ways that we can care for ourselves on a deep-rooted level, but lately I’ve found journaling as the practice that soothes my soul, connects me with myself, and helps me to release anxious thoughts and worries.

What I love about journaling most of all is, it’s the practice of giving your thoughts a home. We have over 60,000 thoughts a day, many of them repetitive, and most of them negative in nature. When we do not find a productive and tangible place for those thoughts to go, either in action or in practice, our mind will hold on to them tightly, and they will repeat as often as possible.

Placing your thoughts onto paper allows your mind to release the tightly held grasp of your thoughts. The practice of being cognizant and mindful of what you’re thinking when you’re thinking it, and releasing it onto another medium, can bring a sense of clarity and newly found meaning.

These days, I spend a few moments before bed, reflecting on my day. Putting my pen to paper and allowing myself to release thoughts that are taking up too much space and not serving me, so that I may cement the hopes and desires that I wish for my life to become a reality, while honoring all that has happened in my life thus far. It’s the perfect practice to encapsulate who I am in this moment and to propel me to become who I wish to be.

If you’re an avid journaler, (not sure this is a word but I love it!) I would enjoy hearing more about your practice and how it benefits your life. Let me know in the comments below!
