It is well documented that the daily act of writing a diary or journal can have a huge impact on personal development. Although for most of my clients, the prospect of HAVING to write something every day-ideally for 28 days to start with-can be pretty daunting. Yes, I do insist that they do it because I know how powerful a daily habit or ritual of writing can be and once they get into it-they generally love it and if they have a day off from journaling they actually miss it!
So why is writing such an effective tool in our personal development kit?
Here are a few reasons:
It focusses our minds and gives us a chance to write about what we are grateful for, how we feel and what we would like to be, do and have.
It gives our brains a rest from the digitised world we now live in.
It has a great meditative effect-helping us to stay calm, centred and in the moment.
My clients are introduced to my Write Your Life creative personal development coaching in the first session, and are given a lovely notebook to take away and start scribbling in. There is something special about a new notebook-full of possibilities, a place to jot down ideas, scribble illustrations and document how we feel.
Here are a few reasons I use the words CLEAR and WRITE to help my clients move forward:
