“Write hard and clear about what hurts.” Ernest Hemingway
Our thoughts can often be all consuming. We can feel locked in by our internal dialogue, unable to escape.
Writing is a great way to process your thoughts, relax your mind and gain clarity. A 2011 study published in the journal of science found that students who wrote a journal were better able to ease their anxieties.
However as simple as it sounds, writing can be incredibly daunting. What should I write? How should I write it? And we often question, is it good enough?
In this workshop we will explore four different writing techniques you can add to your self-care toolkit. Through writing exercises you’ll have the opportunity to explore techniques such as journaling, poetry, cartoons and story writing.
You will leave this workshop to see the benefits of mindful writing such as:
  • Boosting self-esteem
  • Creating “Me” time
  • Relieves stress and anxiety
  • Increasing creativity
  • Letting go of thoughts
The practical techniques you learn in this workshop will help you get pen to paper straight away!

Learning Outcomes:
  • * Select the best writing technique for your self-care toolkit
  • * Compare different writing techniques to support your self-care
  • * Use these foundational techniques as a foundation to create your own writing exercises
  • * Build a writing schedule to Add to your daily routine
