FIVE THINGS YOU DO BETTER WHEN YOU HAVE A JOURNAL

How to heal that lockdown brain one entry at a time, so you can
power through.

2020 was a year of uncertainty and consecutive challenges. We spent most of our days in isolation that we’ve almost lost track of time. As we try to regain some balance and slowly recover from how the lockdown has affected our lives, we turn to building good habits that can help us cope and emerge stronger than before. One of them is through journaling.
Medical experts and psychologists have reminded us that keeping a journal may actually help us boost our mental health by helping us gain control of our emotions and plans. Here, we have listed down five more things that you can do better when you have a journal.

It helps you acknowledge and process your feelings better. We are coming from a time of emotional rollercoaster and situations that we are not really built for. Close interactions now scare us. We feel fear the moment we envision what the future holds for us. Some days, we feel grateful and moved by the possibility of caring from a distance. We miss the beach, we long for get-togethers.

Wring short notes per day can help you acknowledge and embrace those emotions as they come. Somehow, we don’t get too overwhelmed when we have a personal avenue to express ourselves, giving us more time to reflect and breathe.

We love how the The Belle De Jour Power Planner Earth concept and empowering designs remind us that we’re in the process of being whole again. It’s perfect for those who are still learning more about themselves, and eager to thrive amidst the chaos.

This is the reality we have to work with now.

My children often say that I have the attention span of a teaspoon (similar to Ron Weasley) This is partly true. I get bored easily. Aside from work I have started falling for Animal Crossing, a Nintendo Switch game and the color PINK.  I will write about my love for Animal Crossing in a separate post for now, indulge me with my new love for Pink.

I just turned 50 this year. A golden year for my generation and then bam! COVID happened. We are all locked up inside the house.  CABIN FEVER !

I did not really intended for everything to match but it ended up that way…
