This Week's Quick Tip
Writing's always been a therapeutic practice for me.
Whether it’s writing in my journal every night or writing these newsletters to you every week, there’s just something so calming and relaxing about getting all your thoughts and feelings out of your head and onto paper.
There are quite literally times when I feel like I’m going to explode if I keep everything bottled up. So I open up my journal or Apple Notes on my phone and just start writing out everything that’s on my mind.
And ten minutes later, I feel like a completely new person. Reduced stress and anxiety, full of gratitude, and it just really puts things into perspective and makes all my worries disappear (even for just a little bit).
So the next time you’re going through it and just need to let it all out, I encourage you to get out a piece of paper or pull out your phone and write whatever’s on your mind. Because as I always like to think... sometimes you just gotta write it out to work it out.
This Week's Find The Good Story
This week’s find the good story is from an anonymous member of our community. Hope it inspires you as much as it inspires us!
“I recently finished my freshman year of college. I’ve always considered myself to be more of a ‘homebody,’ so moving away from home was a tough challenge for me. I remember the night before I left – I was terrified. I wasn’t sure I could do it, but I knew I had to try.
I had to find the positives in the situation and believe that good things were going to happen to me. It wasn’t always easy to find the good, but I learned that if I do my best, it’ll make a situation a lot better. Yes, college can be really tough and a big adjustment. But by finding the good, it becomes a lot more manageable.”
