Can you put a price tag on you happiness? ….if you think about it we do on a daily basis.
We pay the price of happiness with stress, food, alcohol list goes on.
Some of us are running around putting others needs over our own (umm yes thats you mums and carers). Others celebrate being “so busy” working long hours as achievement and mistake that as happiness.
Instead, all that is sucking us dry and stressed to our eyeballs.
When the most simplest thing that can boycott all of it in and instant is having the discipline of swapping a crazy moment in our day to pause and do ‘self work’, such as mediation, taking 10 deep breaths, ending our day with a warm epson salts bath or my favourite is journalling.
Hence why today’s episode if dedicated too.
Now firstly let me acknowledge by saying it may at seem easier to reduce stress and numb yourselves from your hectic day by plonking yourself down to watch TV, eat or drink something to help find your happiness.
Though over time you realise that it’s actually creating more stress internally which shows up as weight gain around the middle, poor sleep and more anxiety.
Believe me I’ve been there…and get reminded in stressful times when those habit creep back in.
What I walk you through today seriously is your happiness pill; nothing snaps you back into alignment as the power of journaling.
In todays episode, I walk you through journalling techniques. There are an arms length of benefits too that I share!
I also run through different ways with what you can journal so you can find your own style. Plus I pull the curtain right back sharing exactly my routine and what I write in mine.
Keeping a journal helps you create order when your world feels like it’s in chaos. You get to know yourself by revealing your most private fears, thoughts, and feelings.
Look at your writing time as personal relaxation time. It’s a time when you can de-stress and wind down. Write in a place that’s relaxing and soothing, my go to place is always in my bedroom. What I do promise you once you start is how quickly things in your life shifts for eg better and you will LOVE how much you start to look forward to your journaling time. It’s undeniable the feeling knowing that you’re doing something good for your mind and body.
