Meditation Journaling Exercise

This is a great exercise to try if you’re new to meditation and/or journaling, or if you want to try to merge the two together. 

In your journal or on a piece of paper, set a timer for 10 minutes and begin writing with the prompt: “Today I…” From there, do NOT think about what you want to say. Just write. What you write does not have to even make sense! You’ll be surprised where your mind takes you when you release the desire to censor yourself. 

When the timer is up, reread what you wrote and highlight, circle, and/or underline reoccurring themes, feelings, or anything that stands out to you. 

You can do this for ten minutes or one hundred. Just spend some time with your uncensored thoughts. 

Let me know how it goes in the comments!
