Do You Scribe?

DO YOU SCRIB?


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.

 
*Boosts Mood.


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. 

 
Are you ready to start scribing today?

 

COOKING WITH VERITAT

 
WHILE HERE IN COSTA RICA, I'VE BEEN ENJOYING THE AMAZING TROPICAL FRUIT AND THE PASSION FOR SUSTAINING THE ABUNDANCE THAT THE EARTH GIVES TO US, THE ANIMALS, TO THRIVE HERE. 
TODAY'S RECIPE IS REALLY SIMPLE (SINCE I'M ON VACAY)
 
VERITAT FRUIT DESSERT COMPOTE
 
DICE UP YOUR FAVORITE FRUIT COMBINATION OR SINGLE FRUIT VARIETY, AND PLACE IT INTO THAT BEAUTIFUL BOWL THAT YOU NEVER USE, POUR VERITAT OVER TOP, TOP WITH A PINCH OF SEA SALT, TOSS AND SERVE. 
 
*WHEN COMBINING FRUIT, ITS BEST TO STAY IN THE SAME FRUIT FAMILY, NOT ONLY FOR BEST FLAVOR, BUT FOR BETTER DIGESTION. 
 
*FOR EXAMPLE, ALL CITRUS (PEELED ORANGE SECTIONS, GRAPEFRUIT AND TANGERINE-I LIKE TO ADD FRESH MINT TOO)

*BERRY COMBO - RASBERRY, STRAWBERRY, BLACKBERRY

*TROPICAL COMBO - MANGO, PAPAYA, PASION FRUIT AND A BIG SQUEEZE OF LIME OVER EVERYTHING. 

*GRILLED CANTALOUPE -  FOR EXTRA PIZAZZZ, SERVE IT ALONE, TOP WITH VERITAT AND SALT.

*STONE FRUIT COMBO - PEACHES, PLUMS, APRICOTS AND MINT. 

ENJOY AND SHARE YOUR FAVORITE COMBO HERE.
