Journaling is a perfect activity for when you are sitting at a café. Sure, we have missed just being out and about during these past months, so just sitting there watching other people will be enough for some time. But then, why not make the most of your visit?
Journaling, what is that you may ask. Well, it’s about writing. There are a few different techniques, depending on what you are after, and here we will explain two. Regardless of which would suit your purposes the best, you’ll need a physical journal and a pen. Make your own holographic stickers to personalize it.
3 Things to Be Grateful For
This is a common practice to train your gratitude. When we are more grateful, we are also happier, studies show. The practice is simple enough: write down three things you are grateful for in your life. They can be small or big things.
Do this everyday. After a week you’ll notice that it will be easier finding things and that you have expanded your gratefulness.
A way to awaken your creativity and your flow is the Daily Pages. Put your pen to the paper and write three pages full of whatever comes to mind. It doesn’t have to be coherent or connected in any way, just write.
This will help you begin writing and get your train of thought to work. One thing will lead to another which will then lead to a third and suddenly, you’ll find yourself in the middle of a creativity burst.
