Guest Post: Journaling and Your Health
Motherhood journaling intuitively sounds like a good idea: capturing silly memories of your little ones, processing the triumphs and challenges of motherhood, ending the day or week expressing gratitude for the moments that make parenthood so joyful. But then—dishes. Errands. Emails. Grocery lists. Pediatrician appointments. And on and on. How, you’re asking yourself, could I possibly make time to journal? Right, I will just add that to the list of Things That I Will Get to Someday. You know, things like scrapbooking, getting supplies for all of those adorable children’s crafts on Pinterest, and reading War & Peace. In my private practice, I work with many mothers. Often the first words out of their mouths in a session are: “I’m overwhelmed.” As a mother of two young ones I can, of course, relate to this. Always so much to do! However, like many therapists, I consider myself lucky in that I have somewhat of a personal arsenal of tools for managing stress and maintaining wellness.

This week we’re talking milestones. Where are all my pregnant mamas, brides and grooms to be, families in the process of adoption, or even those looking toward a major life change (moving homes or states or even countries)???

Milestones tend to signify the start or end of different chapters we experience in life. Some close the door on hardship, while others open it up to newness and the arrival of much anticipation.

The Lost Art of Letter Writing (part 1)
We try hard to value people and experiences over things, but sometimes it’s the things we have that sustain our memories, that help keep them very much alive when time has weathered them. These journals can be a treasured thing, an artifact of a life well lived.

Fill Your Well
We've all had those days. The ones that leave you practically crawling into your bed, too exhausted to speak or think or take off your eye make up. A girlfriend and I once shared a laugh over being so worn out from the day that we skipped brushing our teeth and settled for a quick swish of mouthwash. And though it sounds like an exaggeration I know I'm not alone in saying any of this.

A Correspondence Journal; a collection of letters to tell your story
Do you remember the last handwritten letter you received? Or the feeling that came with seeing your name printed on an envelope in handwriting that was instantly recognizable?
