Everyday can sound tedious and never ending. But doing something everyday can bring forth a lot of improvement and self empowerment. I love to write everyday. Each day can be different- a thought here, an idea or observation there. It helps my mind make sense of the day and gives me satisfaction once I completed my task. It can also be uplifting and beneficial to go back and read my entries later. Adding to these entries later can also keep the same process going and who knows what kind of great things can stem from them! Once you get into the habit of writing everyday your mind sees things differently and wham! You might just become the next philosophical thinker. But really, give it a try. Keep a pen and notebook by your bed or a place you see everyday and it becomes a lot easier.
Let’s do it together! Write something everyday. Create a sentence journal, and keep it simple!
Make a kit to get you out of your writing rut. Writer’s fear it all everywhere- the inability to connect your mind to your hand. But don’t worry, there is always a solution!
The environment you are in can be your friend or your foe. Make sure it is a pleasant space for you. Have a list of go to places to visit to muse and sit- hopefully it will spark some inspiration.
You know yourself better than anybody, so when writers block hits make sure you have the necessary stress relief. Whether that be taking a bath, doing a favorite hobby or opening up a bottle of Tylenol. Do what your body needs.
