Is there a ‘right’ way to practice mindfulness? I don’t believe there is. Instead, there is plenty of room to customise it to meet your own needs. If you’ve struggled with meditation, then harnessing your imagination could transform your practice time from a dreaded chore into something more personalised, nurturing and appealing.
Mindful journaling can be a powerful tool for growth, especially for those times when meditation doesn't feel like an accessible practice. It builds not only awareness, but also self-compassion. In my own practice, I value my journaling space just as much as my time spent in meditation.
