I am such a huge believer in using crafting, journaling and art as therapy. It’s such an awesome way to help you process your thoughts, life, emotions, preserve the highlights and memories, celebrate moments and work through allowing your mind and body to metabolize the stresses and events that aren’t always the shiny happy moments of life.
I have really found through the art of scrapbooking and journaling that it truly helps me regulate my reactions but not ignore my emotions. It helps in developing and responding in resilience instead of becoming more rigid in physical reactions.
I have been going through really tough emotional, physical and mental traumas the last few years and now more than ever taking 5-10 minutes several times a week to scrapbook highlights, journal thoughts and emotions and get quiet and intentional in this way helps more than ever. So quick 5 minute scrapbook pages whether of happy moments or challenging ones change your brains way of looking at and thinking about situations.
So here, is a 5 minute layout idea you can replicate to help you on a regular basis enjoy this hobby, but also enjoy the moments of your life!
