The Healing Power Of Journaling
Journaling sparks your mindfulness and helps you remain present while keeping a clear and true perspective. The healing power of journaling is different for everyone just like not all journals are the same. Each journal is as different as the person who wrote it. That is the best part of journaling. There is no right or wrong, just you, a pen, and your journal.
- What effect does reflecting on my workday have on my professional development?
- How confident am I in my general decision-making process?
- How important is it to share my reflections with others?
Respiration is an element of meditation. In many meditation practices, careful breathing is necessary and is, therefore, a valuable tool for people who regularly perform this task to be awakened.
When meditating, the practice of regular breathing lets an individual relax when doing the meditation. By inhaling through the nose, allowing the diaphragm (not the chest) to expand and exhale through the mouth, proper breathing is achieved. Doing this slows the heart rate of an individual, resulting in a relaxed mood.
Breathing also plays a major role in increasing a person’s focus. This is achieved by concentrating the mind on the act of taking air through the nostrils until the air is eventually exhaled through the lips. While this may sound easy, when done for the first time, it can be quite challenging.
Then there is a way to raise awareness of an individual. Like the above-mentioned method of relaxation, this involves paying attention to one’s breathing. But instead of concentrating on inhaling and exhaling air, where the person trains his / her mind, it is the sense of breathing. The feeling that the air passes through the nose fills the lungs and expands the diaphragm is the feeling a person should look for.
