We get a lot people not really knowing where to start when it comes to journaling 📝
Freewriting is amazing for clearing your mind and stopping ruminating, no rules, no structure just flow and enjoy the feeling of flow and making space.
If that’s too much too soon just start simply asking yourself questions like these ☝🏽 and notice how you feel afterwards...💫
I’m curious how do you journal and what do you get out of it?

***I've had an idea, but need you help*** I'm looking at the possibility of getting my cards made into little positive pillows, so they can be carried them around with yourself and get that bit of positive reaffirmation whenever you need it .... So 3 Questions:
1. Is this a good ideas?
2. What designs would you like to see? I'm thinking 2 possibly 3 to start with but there are so many I love to choose from?
3. Do you have a better name for them than positive pillows?

‘Not a Patient but a Person’ follows artist Mark Titchner in the creation of an artwork working with @_hospitalrooms
for the Jasmine Lodge, a mother and baby mental health unit that provides care for new mothers who experience serious mental health episodes and keeps them together with their babies whilst they recover. "The process that the charity goes through, with the workshops and the care of the installations and the effort the artists put in, very much validated me as a human being or individual, with permission to need and want a nice environment and made me feel like I was not just a patient-but a person. It felt very inclusive, when sometimes suffering with mental illness can be very isolating.” - Cat Lee, Service User Representative.

gestern habe ich den Mietvertrag unterschrieben und meine Schlüssel bekommen! Ich habe mein Zimmer das erste Mal ohne fremde Möbel gesehen und ich liebe es einfach 😍
Morgen ist dann der richtige Umzug.
Kisten sind gepackt und jetzt kann es los gehen. Endlich.
Aber natürlich bin ich auch traurig mein Zuhause zu verlassen. Mein erstes eigenes Zuhause. Aber ich kann ja jeder Zeit wieder nachhause kommen 🙈 Das Wohnheim ist nur 10 Minuten zu Fuß von mir zuhause entfernt. Trotzdem wird es schwer. Gestern war auch WG Versammlung und dir Situation mit der einen Mitbewohnerin ist leider nicht besser geworden. Mein Zimmer ist auch direkt neben ihrem und ich stelle mich darauf ein, dass es stressig und laut wird. Mal gucken ob ich damit umgehen kann. Es gibt tausend kleine und große Dinge die mir Sorgen machen bei der ganzen Sache. Aber trotzdem freue ich mich und bin gespannt, was für ein Leben ich mir nun aufbauen werde. Drückt mir die Daumen, dass alles gut wird. 💗

Oh hello there! It's Friday introductions time.
I'm Catherine, I'm training to be a nurse in London and I'm in the midst of a year that's revolving around being more deliberate about things.
I started this year knowing I was anxious but not recognising quite how anxious I was. I saw my GP (please start there if you're having any worrying mental health symptoms) who sent me for some CBT which really, really helped.
I felt as though I was running late for my life, which as someone who suffers from chronic punctuality was pretty distressing. But, instead of getting on and living that life, I was paralysed. Paralysed by my finances, by bad habits, by never settling anywhere, by my body image and self esteem.
I've been at it for almost 6 months, this gentle unravelling of myself and my thoughts. I've built up an emergency fund and taken control of my finances, I've taken some proper time off and rested and I've come back to myself a bit. I feel calm and content, which is a world away from where I was. 6 months of focusing on my brain have set me up really nicely for 6 months of focusing on my body. I didn't realise that's how this would work out but that's where we're at.
I'm thinking about how best to take care of my body, which is something I've never really done before. If you have any tips that don't involve me standing on weighing scales, let me know! I'm thinking keto-ish and running/yoga but I've never successfully achieved that so I need those tips!
The brain stuff will continue on, I've got a philosophy degree, I'm brain over body any day of the week, but hey, bodies are important too and people keep telling me that a healthy body will help me have a healthy mind and that's what I'm here for.
Goodness, that's long eh? Sorry. Love ya. Thanks for following along.
