Hour of Power

writing-pad-950 x 550

Taking time out for quiet reflection daily can be an incredibly powerful practice. Self-time helps us sift through mental noise, find clarity and build the coping stores we often need on a regular basis. So, pretty critical to take time out, right?

Absolutely, it’s obvious to most, however finding an ‘hour of power’ daily might seem like a big (and overwhelming) ask for many of us who are living life at top speed. It’s a relief to know that even 10 minutes a day can make a major difference.

Journaling (writing stuff down in a book) at the very start or very end of your day is a neat little practice to help you quiet the mind and a few minutes of peace daily.

Feeling comfortable with a regular writing practice takes time to begin with, but one simple technique to get you started is to sit down with your journal and ask yourself one question. Give yourself 2 minutes to answer it – just writing whatever comes to you, writing for the whole 2 minutes. There doesn’t have to be anything poetic about journaling, it is simply a tool to free your mind, to make space for more lateral thinking and allow creative expression.

Some great questions to get you started:

What am I grateful for today?

How would l like to feel today?

What am I reluctant to look at today?
