The First WLC Lifestyle Practice Announced: Journaling

During the first week of the Whole Life Challenge, journal 10 minutes a day to earn your five points in the Lifestyle category. This will start this Saturday.

Here’s an excerpt from the Whole Life Challenge blog about this week’s challenge:

“Simple Instructions:

* Each day, sit down and write in a handwritten journal.
* You can use any form of journaling you like. Choose something that suits your need and personal style. Two simple examples are a diary-type reflective journal or stream-of-consciousness writing.
* Don’t worry about the content. This is not art. It doesn’t even have to be legible.
*All thoughts are fair game. Don’t censor. This is for your eyes only.

Why Is This Practice Important?

Taking time to get uncensored thoughts out of your head and onto paper can free your mind for other things. If it’s important stuff, you’ve recorded it and can move on. If you don’t need to remember it, you can even burn it and be done with it! The simple act of releasing the thoughts can give you the freedom to take your own mind back.”

Also, you never know what these scribblings could turn into – maybe an idea develops and becomes organized on paper then turns into a project or a passion. Journaling is a great way to help sort out what you might really want out of life. Or simply help you deal with what you already have.

Journaling can be a valuable practice, and it’s a great first WLC Lifestyle practice. You might want to give it a shot even if you’re not doing the Whole Life Challenge
