Keep Your Thoughts to Yourself
“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” St. Augustine
We love that we can beautify your personal expression.
Journaling has now entered a new renaissance. If you’re an artist like myself, then I’m sure you’re no stranger to Julia Cameron’s “Morning Pages.” In her book The Artist’s Way, Cameron insists that free forming words without judgment long before you day begins allows your day to creatively flow with passion. According to Natalie Goldberg, talks of the importance of relaxing into the writing. The mere act of writing is physical exercise.
Dr. James Pennebaker talks of how journaling is meant to help the person writing feel better and reduce performance anxiety. In a study conducted at the University of Texas by Pennebaker, reveals that journaling can help relieve stress, thereby lowering blood pressure and increasing health. Using a journal as a means of self-expression can be a link to increased good health when examining and expressing very deep, troubling, and traumatic events.
So, when you pick up the book of blank pages, use it as an tool for self-expression utilizing mindmapping clouds, doodles, or even symbols. Forget about good handwriting, lines, spelling, punctuation, or grammar. Writing or illustrating during the journaling moments is about expression and breaking through to what is really going on inside, revealing our finest selves.
