#JournalChat Live 4/19/12 Topic: Your Journaling: Stress Busters! Part I

@4Rms @JournalChat ...it loses its drama, its heat so I can be more objective about it. And usually more sensible. #journalchat
4Rms3:33pm via TweetChat
I do find that there's only a certain length of time I can go without writing before feeling off balance, more prone to stress #journalchat
JournalChat3:32pm via HootSuite
@4Rms Yes, life patterns...they have something to tell us if we'll pay attention. #JournalChat
journalinabox3:32pm via web
@4Rms Agreed - love the art expression of emotion #JournalChat
4Rms3:32pm via TweetChat
@JournalChat I always mean to include more drawing/collage in my journals.Not as common a habit for me,but love it when I do it #journalchat
ninimpb3:32pm via Twittelator
@4Rms @JournalChat I find sometimes I might be upset about something, but once it's out there on the page,....#journalchat
4Rms3:31pm via TweetChat
@LorelieJ I love lists. They are so neat & tidy and yet can expose new insights so unexpectedly!#journalchat
4Rms3:30pm via TweetChat
@JournalChat art is so great at relieving emotional pressure;some people really enjoy other art forms as well.I use poetry most #journalchat
LorelieJ3:30pm via web
@JournalChat Similar to free-writing/dumping, I like to do a quick list of what's bugging me to get it out and move on. #journalchat
DawnHerring3:30pm via HootSuite
I'm a huge fan of this one since I love collage; I'm a visual person and an artist, and image speaks to me. #JournalChat #Journaling
journalinabox3:30pm via web
@4Rms @juliejordanscot Writing and then letting it go...Great advice! #JournalChat
4Rms3:29pm via TweetChat
@JournalChat @ninimpb having that view of your own life at a remove is really helpful in recognizing patterns & changing things #journalchat

I love this approach, Melanie: "expressing your strong feelings artistically, in a poem or a sketch or a collage." #JournalChat #Journaling

@JournalChat I think that "cause no harm" is a good rule in many areas of life, & applies to our writing as well #journalchat
JournalChat3:28pm via HootSuite
@ninimpb I agree, Niamh. That's a great way to put it, "The Big Picture" #JournalChat
JournalChat3:27pm via HootSuite
@4Rms I think that's a brilliant way of getting rid of the stress without harm to anyone. #Journaling#JournalChat

@4Rms That's a lovely image. Journaling lays it all out in front of us so we can stand back and see the big picture. #journalchat

@mscator Love that quote... it's always an inspiration to me. #journalchat
JournalChat3:25pm via HootSuite
@ninimpb Welcome to #JournalChat Live, Niamh! That's right! Write it out! :)

@juliejordanscot I say tell them off! Let off steam & still salvage a relationship/situation by writing & then letting it go #journalchat

@easyjournaling Welcome to #JournalChat Live, Sam! Good to see you! :)

@juliejordanscot I find that freewriting , an emotional "dump", when we trust our journal practice is such a stress buster #journalchat
JournalChat3:19pm via HootSuite
That whole approach can really open up the pathways to our intuition and to our understanding of what stresses us. #JournalChat #Journaling
