Coming home after a long frustrating day has become the norm - the story of our lives. For those with children, their day continues on with the "Mommy, I need" or the "Daddy, Johnny hit me" cries. How do we not implode?
What would you say if I told you that writing can help calm your nerves after a long day?
Well it can!!!! Grab a nice piece of old-fashioned paper (yeah, writing paper still exists! They still have those ancient books called Journals too!) and a pen or pencil and write whatever you feel like. Writing can quickly become the solution to some of your problems (I highly doubt it's capable of fixing all your problems). Be warned, this type of free writing can release the creativity that you thought you no longer had, or ever knew existed.
Don't know what to write? Let me help:
- Daily To Do Lists
- Bucket Lists
- Letter to an old friend or a letter to yourself to be opened in 5 years
- A mini story
- Begin a daily journal to document the things you are thankful for
- Learn hand-lettering
Writing has the ability to bring down your stress levels and help you forget about the hectic day you had. Don't be surprised if you wake up well rested the next morning still holding on to your pen.
