The mind, body, and soul are one in the same. They work fluidly to equip you with the greatest tools you need to be successful, happy, and healthy. What happens when your soul is lacking nourishment? Your body and mind get dragged down, worn out, and weaken. It’s time to revamp your soul with a little journaling!
Journaling doesn’t have to be boring. Part of nourishing your mind and body is ensuring your soul is happy too. Here are a few ways to stay on track to nourishing your soul!
The first step to nourish your soul through journaling is to purchase a journal! Local bookstores will typically carry lined journals as well as unlined blank journals, which are perfect for sporadic thought-jotting entries! It’s all about preference. Choose what makes you happy!
Write in your journal for a minimum of 5 minutes per day. That’s it! Turn on the soft music, grab your journal and your favorite pen, and write what you feel.
Write the thoughts in your mind, project them onto the paper, and gain a perspective that you have been missing out on, a different view into your world. Escape your thoughts, good and bad, and know that your journal is your space, your nonjudgmental ear, and your sacred place. Journaling is soul-food! Feed your soul what it craves- happiness, clarity, nourishment, and peace!
After writing for 5-10 minutes, reflect on your journal entry, send the thoughts away, close your book, and put it up until the next day. Journaling is one of the most effective ways to let go of your problems, release your negative thoughts, and be at peace. Nourishing your soul and sending happiness to your mind will give your body the strength and health it needs to prosper.
What are you waiting for? Grab a journal, a ballpoint pen, and a glass of ice water and start journaling. Your soul will thank you later!
