Journaling for self-care: What do you need?

purple plant, words: free journaling for self-care workshop offered by Patty Bechtold therapist for women wiselifetherapy.comWhat do you need at the end of one year and the beginning of another?

I know the new year often brings with it a kind of “fresh start” energy. But in 2021 and now in 2022 I’ve noticed that energy seems quieter and sometimes even absent.

Of course it’s not surprising, given what’s happened during the last two years and the toll it’s taken.

You may sense there’s something more you’re longing for right now.

Something to hold you as we cross the threshold from one difficult year into one unknown year.

Let’s harvest, savor and give hospitality and welcome to what’s here now and what needs space.

Let’s take some dedicated time for journaling for self-care.

We’ll make time for exploring the season ahead with some gentle, quiet and deeply meaningful journaling.

It’s exactly the kind of self-care journaling we need right now.

It’s a time to connect to your inner life too. So we’ll focus on journaling practices that open up the conduit to your deeper wisdom about what needs to be savored right now and what parts of you need your welcome and hospitality.

For this journaling workshop I’ve gathered together some lovely images, poetry and quotations to help us along the way. I’ve also cued up my favorite guided meditation.

So let’s gather together on January 22nd to ask the question: What’s Ripening for You in 2022?

I’m looking forward to a little self-care journaling with a group of wise women. Because: you are wise and there’s nothing like a good session of journaling with kindred spirits to bring you back to yourself and your deep wisdom.

One more thing: journaling is like paradise for your mental health

words: journaling for mental health,

Have you ever picked up a notebook and a pen and just started writing?

There you were, spilling your thoughts and feelings on the page. Then, almost before you knew it, you felt better.

Well, that was a form of journaling for self-care, even though you might not have realized it at the moment.

Journaling can be easy too, really just a pen and paper. And starting. Over the years I’ve discovered that it’s relatively easy to live it and practice it. And when I do I feel so much better.

So if you need a little nudge to join me, remember that journaling…

  • has the capacity to heal and increase well-being
  • helps your brain lay down new neural pathways
  • revives your imagination and creative wisdom
  • awakens your sensing and savoring muscles

See you on January 22nd!
