Guided Journaling for Self-Reflection and Stress Relief
ABOUT THE TEACHER:
I've loved to write since I was a little girl. I think my mom still has my first published work lovingly entitled, "Help, I Got Stuck in the Trash Can!" I have a bachelor's degree in public relations and have spent more than 10 years managing communication and marketing efforts for large corporations from healthcare to higher education. After becoming a mom I returned to writing for fun after I realized that writing through my struggles and successes helped me process my emotions. In 2018 I founded a lifestyle blog, Daylight to Dark, where I share personal reflections and meditations in a sort of public-facing journal. In less than two years I have grown my platform to more than 70K followers, and have been published nationally and internationally on outlets like Good Morning America, The Today Show, ABC News, The Daily Mail, Scary Mommy, Love What Matters, Kidspot Australia among many more.
ABOUT THE CLASS:
Journaling is shown to positively impact depression, anxiety, and stress. In addition to improving mood, easing symptoms of depression, and boosting a personal sense of wellbeing, journaling also bolsters memory, comprehension, and creativity, and can help broaden perspective, aid in problem-solving and goal-setting, and enhance self-reflection.
So we know that journaling has many health and wellness benefits. But where do you begin? That's where most people get stuck. The good news is that journaling is for everyone. You don't have to be a writer to start journaling and begin reaping the benefits of this therapeutic outlet.
In this 45-minute online class, you'll learn:
- How to get started with journaling
- How to use journaling as a reflective tool and stress-relief
- How to access deeper levels of self-reflection
- Creative writing tips and techniques
- How to connect self-reflection to concrete action steps
MATERIALS STUDENTS WILL USE IN CLASS:
Journaling is an intensely personal process, so the materials you use are completely up to you. You'll need a physical or electronic means of writing, which can be as simple as a scrap piece of paper and pen, the notes app on your phone, a physical journal or notebook, or your computer.
While no specific materials are required to participate, I personally love and often recommend this journal: https://amzn.to/3mQqkvb (affiliate link)
