3 hidden benefits of journaling for self care

The benefits of journaling for self care

Journaling for self care will help you reveal your thoughts, stop hiding from yourself, identify unconscious beliefs that stop you from dressing better than you do, and challenge your brain’s acceptance of your life status quo.

If you are not looking your best every day and hiding from yourself, if you know you could look and feel much better than you do, but feel stuck, or overwhelmed, I really recommend you develop a journaling practice and learn the benefits of journaling for self care.

Specifically I recommend, wardrobe journaling, a journaling practice which focuses on your clothes: what you wear, what you think about what you wear; what you might like to change.

Rather than rushing into buying clothes you don’t need or want in an effort to stop feeling like you do I recommend that you stop.

Stop, sit down, get yourself a drink a notebook and a pen.

And start to write.

How to give your brain a rest from negative thought chatter

Give yourself a rest from the incessant brain chatter

We all have so many thoughts a day, some estimates are around 60,000 thoughts a day. And we know that not all of those thoughts are positive, self affirming thoughts. If we leave the brain to its own devices the thoughts that come out of there are not always the most positive.

I think we sometimes have this idea that the brain is the brain and thoughts come out of it and there is nothing we can do. So, some people have positive, happy thoughts and great lives. And other people, like you or like me, have negative, sad thoughts and have lives that we have to put up with or endure. And that’s just our lot in life.

VISIBLE magazine

VISIBLE magazine

Do you remember what you wanted to do and what you loved doing as a child? I do. I remember seeing Karl Lagerfeld on TV a long time ago and wanting to be a designer. I loved ballet and wanted to teach it. And I have always loved magazines. And real estate. But back to the magazines.

My mother used to buy, and still does, women’s magazines. I grew up reading her magazines and then when I was old enough, I started to buy my own.

Why delayed gratification might be bad for you

We know it’s good to wait for what we want. To delay getting something. We know that patience is a great thing. But for some of us, delayed gratification is hiding another issue which is low self esteem. We think we don’t deserve something and so we create situations where we continually don’t get things or achieve things. This proves to us that we don’t deserve things in life ‘like everyone else does’. And so the cycle continues.

Read on for how to spot the signs that delayed gratification might just be hiding your self esteem, and how to stop this cycle with a simple method.

It doesn’t apply to me

Are you stuck in dull, negative thoughts patterns?

Do you stop yourself from having what you want because of low level, sometimes unconscious chatter in your brain that tells you, “It doesn’t apply to me.”?

Do you look at someone else’s life and see areas where they are successful, the kind of success you yourself would like but think “Oh that kind of success, that kind of luck, it doesn’t apply to me.”?

The best version of you

What do you need to be the best version of you?

The answer to this question may lie in how you think about yourself and how you think about life.

Do you think life is about achievement, doing, working, getting? Or do you think that life is about experiencing, feeling, being?

Setting personal goals with Lose 5, Stylise, Organise

Lose 5, Stylise, Organise

Setting personal goals, and then achieving them, can be hard work especially with everything else that clamours for our time. It’s easy to deprioritise ourselves in order to prioritise others: work; family; responsibilities.

Building momentum, through continually achieving goals you set yourself, can be impossible if you don’t have a framework that will ensure your success.

New Year, New You – How to implement and maintain a “new you”

Here we are at the start of a new year. If there is one time in the year when we make goals, plans and dreams it is this time of year.

Exercise, diet and financial goals are big topics for new year’s resolutions.
We start with the greatest of intentions but statistics show that the majority of people forget their new year’s resolutions after about 3 weeks and then return to their old pattern of behaviour.

Creating your own personal clothing protocol, maintaining an organised wardrobe and understanding your own unique style are empowering resolutions to make and here at Working Frocks we are designing systems and courses for you to join which will help you design, create and implement your “new you”.
