New Year, New You: The Power of Journaling

Journal to Joy, a workshop to be held on Saturday, February 21, 1 to 3:30pm, at Monmouth Beach Yoga & Wellness, 36 Beach Road, Monmouth Beach, is for those interested in establishing an ongoing journaling practice or anyone who simply wishes to enjoy an uplifting and inspiring afternoon within a tranquil setting. Led by Fran McConnell, CPC, ELI-MP, owner of the Balanced Owl, LLC, the workshop will guide participants through soul-searching and intention-oriented writing exercises designed to create a more purposeful, joyful life. A complimentary journal will be provided.

Journaling, a practice rooted in self-care, can be a powerful way to help you make sense of your feelings and validate your deepest intentions. Expressing one’s thoughts in writing has been shown to help people discover or recognize unproductive behavior patterns and specific areas where they may be “stuck.” It also helps participants articulate scattered thoughts to understand how best to accomplish their goals while releasing negative thoughts, fears, resentments, and regrets that may be holding them back. Journal to Joy Part 2 will be held on Saturday, March 7, for additional self-exploration and goal setting.
