The List: A New Look at an Old Journal Writing Technique|
We were three generations--from 65 years old to 4 years old--spending a few late afternoon hours paddling in kayaks and canoes on Sarasota Bay. Miren, the granddaughter of a close friend, is very curious and observant and I love to spend time with her when she's in town. She's keenly aware of her world. As we walked around the yard, she smelled the herb rosemary growing by the back door. Miren wanted a sprig of it to carry around so she could sniff it whenever, which when she did, a radiant smile rippled across her face. And as we headed to the nearby beach edge to put in our small watercraft, her face wrinkled painfully with the sulfur smell of low tide mixed with a splash of rotting seaweed.

You schedule three hours over the weekend and make note of the time on your calendar as if it were an important appointment. And it is. . . .
Writing to Heal: Can I Write Myself Well?|
Wellness and writing are connected in ways we are only beginning to understand and use. The literature of several healthcare professions suggests that for many people wellness and writing can be closely connected, and that writing is useful for obtaining and sustaining emotional, physical, and spiritual health. . . .
Reflective Journal Writing for Social Worker Well-Being|
During my first ten years as a social worker, I worked in high stress and often high trauma roles: an intake and after hours child welfare social worker, a crisis response counselor with at-risk youth, and a medical social worker within the emergency department and intensive care unit of a hospital. I did my best to consistently practice self-care as a way of managing stress and mitigating the effects of exposure to both direct and indirect trauma that were "just part of the job." . . .
I enjoy using “Trance Writing” sometimes when I journal. Trance Writing is writing with eyes closed, in a relaxed, even trance-like state (Ira Progoff . . .
Think of Journal writing as an
