This week, Jill asks about my journaling practice — I’m an avid journaler, and journaling is part of the way I organize my life, not to mention a huge part of my self-care practice. So join us today as I talk about the techniques I incorporate in my journaling — it’s not nearly as complicated as you might think.
Links mentioned in this episode:
- Huffington Post on the benefits of journaling
- A quick video on bullet journaling (it might spark some inspiration on how you might want to use your journal for organization. Mine isn’t this involved, but there’s good here, for sure)
- Julia Cameron’s wonderful book, The Artist’s Way (my inspiration for morning pages)
- Pendaflex self-adhesive clear-front pockets (for adding photographs, fortune cookie fortunes and other ephemera to your pages)
- My current favourite journals (similar to Moleskines, except the pages are numbered) and favourite pens
- The 1000 Journals Project (tons of inspirational art journal pages, to urge you to attempt making a mess in your own journal)
- The Diary of Frida Kahlo (a reproduction of the famous artist’s diary — its imperfection made me brave enough to try art journaling)
- Sunni Brown’s TED talk on the magic of doodling (learning the benefits of doodling might just convince you that doodling is good for you)
