Do you scribe?
I really hope you do.
I recently started writing in the cursive style that comes naturally to me. In my past, I was scolded for the way I wrote cursive because to this one person, it took a little more effort to read and they preferred to read block print. It had nothing to do with me or my cursive of course. I wrote this person, and myself, a forgiveness letter and reveled in the flow of this long forgotten cursive style of mine for a whole page, and wrote at an angle because I felt it looked better, more feminine.
Is there a story in your head around writing, that you believe, just because someone else mentioned it in the past? Just in case you need it, I give you permission to let go of a belief about yourself that someone else put on you, especially around writing, you are now free to be imperfectly you.
Here are 5 reasons to keep up or start journaling today:
*It Reduces Stress Expressive writing (like journaling) for only 15 to 20 minutes a day three to five times over the course of a four-month period was enough to lower blood pressure and improve liver functionality. Plus, writing about stressful experiences can help you manage them in a healthy way.
*Improves Immune Function. Believe it or not, expressive writing can strengthen your immunity and decrease your risk of illness.
*Keeps Memory Sharp. Journaling helps keep your brain in tip-top shape. Not only does it boost memory and comprehension, it also increases working memory capacity, which may reflect improved cognitive processing.
Want more sunshine in your life? Try journaling. A unique social and behavior outcome of journaling is this: it can improve your mood and give you a greater sense of overall emotional well-being and happiness.
*Strengthens Emotional Functions.
Related to mood is how journaling benefits overall emotional health: As journaling habits are developed, benefits become long-term, meaning that diarists become more in tune with their health by connecting with inner needs and desires.
Truly, journaling fosters growth, and one of the attributes of longevity is a lifelong learning mindset, ….and 2 TBS of VERITAT a day ;)) (I couldn’t resist!!) Link in bio.
