Daily activity for healthy mind: JOURNALING to process your thoughts and emotions

IMG_2655Journaling is a great way to express your personal thoughts and emotions, when it is difficult to express them to someone or if what you feel is not so clear. It will help you to organise your thoughts and identify confused feelings. Gain control over your emotions. Lower or suppress overthinking and relieve stress and anxiety. It will help you to bring awareness to your concerns and what you are going through. Once your thoughts are on paper, your mind will clear out and you will feel lighter.

  1. Choose your favorite support: a nice notebook, your note app on your phone, your computer, etc.
  2. Use freewriting: simply note the date of the day and start writing anything that comes to your mind: emotions, feelings, fears, ideas, memories, etc. Question yourself and dive deeper into self-reflection allowing yourself to write freely, don’t judge what you are writing, sometimes it won’t make sens, and that’s ok. It can be a difficult émotions, or something positive you are experiencing. Each day is different.
  3. Add gratitude: each day, list 5 things you are grateful for. It can be things (small or big) or persons (friends, family or strangers).
  4. Add goals: list 2 things you want to improve  (regarding your lifestyle, your routine, your social life, your relationship, your work, etc).

Timing: choose a timing that works for you, each day at the same time or whenever you are having thoughts you want to lay down on paper. First thing in the morning or before going to bed usually works well. Try do it at least 3 times a week. Don’t ask yourself too many questions and go for it!

*You can also use journaling to write down ideas, goals or projects you want to achieve this week, month or year, describing each step you will need to go through in order to succeed and how it would feel to be there.

Mandala meditation

Fun and creative meditative practice, we use drawing as the object of attention.

A mandala is a complex abstract design that is usually circular in form. In fact, « mandala » is a Sanskrit word that means « circle ». Mandalas generally have one identifiable center point, from which emanates an array of symbols, shapes and forms.

In essence, mandalas represent the connection between our inner worlds and outer reality. Colouring mandalas can be both inspirational and therapeutic.
