Self-Care Challenge Day 2: Writing It Out
By: Amy Maricle
I have found that if I don’t want my feelings to completely run my life, I need some outlets for them. Sometimes five minutes is all I need to purge my worries, whether before bed, first thing in the morning, or in the middle of the day. Being able to them on paper let’s me set them aside and focus on the moment.
Try this exercise:
PIck a time today when you are feeling a bit overwhelmed or confused. Find a quiet spot and write uninterrupted for 5 minutes about what’s on your mind. When you are done, read what you wrote and underline words and phrases that stick out to you. Pay attention to any needs that arise, and take care of them as best you can.
