Creating Awareness By Putting Pen to Paper

AD | Gifted

When you stop and think about everything going on right now in the world, it can be downright hard to deal with and even more confusing to try to process and understand. People all over the world are trying to comprehend and deal with their thoughts and emotions without coming to any type of conclusion. 

One answer that can easily be started today is to put pen to paper and write out your thoughts. You’ll be amazed at how much better you’ll free just by allowing yourself to be open. 

Creating Awareness By Putting Pen to Paper

Sometimes our thoughts are hard to process because they’re stuck inside of our heads. What this means is that we need to find a creative and useful way to get them out of our brains and down on paper. 

Using the Joy of Mindful Writings and the Writer’s Creative Workbook can help you understand your thoughts and keep your hands and minds occupied at the same time.

Even if you aren’t a writer, you’ll be able to find great benefits by using these two writing companions in a way that creates mindfulness and calmness.

Writing out your thoughts frees up your brain

If you feel like you’re just spinning your wheels over and over again on the same thoughts, it’s time to “let them go”. Putting them down on paper is getting them out of your brain to make room for something else.

Writing prompts can help you figure out where your emotions and thoughts are coming from

You might not even realize what you’re feeling or thinking right now, and that’s okay. Having some help from writing prompts can get those thoughts and emotions to pour right out of you. 

There is no right or wrong way to write out your thoughts, feelings, or to even create a story. Your writing is just that…your writing. If there are limitations that you feel, try and let them go and allow yourself to be creative in any way that you can. 

Writing allows you to create anything that you want

Sometimes writing doesn’t have to be about what’s going on in the real world at all. You can literally use your writing to create an imaginary place in your mind that you’re passionate about or that you’re looking forward to. Hope in writing is a great way to look forward to the future as well. 

Above all else, understand that whatever you write is something that you can keep privately for yourself. This doesn’t have to be anything that is going to be showcased or shared with others.

Your writing can be as open or as private as you want in the hopes that it helps you come to a more mindful and happy place than where you currently might be. And if you decide that you do want to share with others, do so and be proud of it.

Being courageous to write out your thoughts and feelings is something that not everyone can do. Your words matter and they’re deserving of your time.

    I relax by having a long hot bath and thinking about things I want to write down. I like poetry so I write down what I want my poem to say and then work out how to put it into verse.
