Studies have shown that journal writing has many physical and mental health benefits including: decreased anxiety levels, better immune function, and feelings of greater psychological wellbeing. Journaling can be used to help us to clarify thoughts, process feelings, reduce stress, solve problem more effectively, explore creativity and to discover the writer within. In this experiential workshop, participants will practice a variety of journaling techniques, and learn meditation exercises that can be used as tools to center one’s self before writing or anytime, to cultivate a sense of ease. The workshop takes place on February 3, 2014, in E23-501. No writing experience necessary. Sharing is optional. Led by Lauren Mayhew, Certified Journal Instructor.
