My personal invitation to you; For years I did not know that I had anxiety and depression, and I most definitely did not think much of myself. Lucky for me I had a Creative Writing-English teacher in grade eleven who began my journaling days. This helped support me when there was little else.
Journaling changes the neural pathways in our brain. Writing “it” down, is a way of lessening our burdens. There is much research backing up the benefits of journaling. There are also proven theories of positive thinking, especially with gratitude journaling. With this practice it is possible to enhance your life.
Over the years, as a therapist, I have learned that we need to check in with ourselves, our body, mind, spirit and emotions every day. I learned that we need to be consistent in order to be successful.
Make your daily practice your own. Every- body is uniquely, beautifully different, so that means different strategies work for different people.
Whatever your “combination” is – make it your own and practice it daily. You will see a difference and this will help make you feel better, as many others before you.
The more connected you are to yourself, the more connected you are to your world.
Warmly, with love from my heart, Elke
