In this months Insta Live for Psychologies magazine I share two journaling tips. The first is a warm up that demonstrates that there is always something to write about especially when you believe there is nothing to write about. The second journal exercise is titled Unfinished Business and helps you to journal about a knotty everyday experience. This month recommended journaling book is Creative Journal Writing by Stephanie Dowrick. Want more on journaling head over to the new column Writing To Flourish in this months psychologies magazine and the monthly journaling prompt Paper Therapy on The Words page. Back next month on Monday 5th October at 5pm. Thanks for joining.
Writing Is A Form Of Meditation Writing spaces no matter how how short are like a meditation. Thank you to Jeannie Wright for this wonderful quote. In this months Insta Live we talk about why and how writing is like a meditation. How writing is a brilliant way of creating time and space to think. How Morning pages rooted my journal writing practice for over thirty years. How walking is an excellent companion to the writing life. How a silent walk gives you head space. And helps quieten the crowd of voices in your head.
