There are so many tips I can give you in regard to journaling. But I think narrowing it down to these 7 will get you off to a good start. Journaling was a safe haven for me. It allowed me to express, release, discover, expose and embrace so many different things about myself during my time of grieving. So, I put together a list of a few tips to help you if you decide to journal through your loss, grief and healing. Hopefully these can be of use to you. Be free, go journal.
-Find you a space in your house, grab pen and journal, or whatever you will journal with, and get ready to release
-If you are unsure where to start, look up journal prompt to get you going
-Write, drawl, doodle, doesn’t always have to be words on a page
-Don’t focus on editing or spelling things correctly, the goal is to release with nothing holding you back, so editing is the last thing we will worry about
-Remember if an emotion comes up, embrace it and ride the wave and allow it to let you flow
-If and when tears begin to fall, do not wipe them, let them fall freely
- There’s no set time limit for journaling. But if needed, set a timer for yourself and journal in that time frame.
