Journaling can be a therapeutic exercise. In therapy, Johanna may encourage you to journal or keep a diary in a specific way, to raise awareness of specific activities, thoughts, or feelings. This monthly journal exercise is in no way individually prescribed, but meant to offer food for thought that may be useful for anyone.
June’s monthly journal exercise:
Write a letter to your past self. What have you learned from yourself? What would you want to share with your past self that you know now? Be kind to your past self. This does not need to be a polished piece of writing, but rather a brief exercise to get yourself writing and thinking about yourself in a new way.
