Feelin’ a little stressed?

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Take time out for yourself. Put your feet up, grab one of your favorite holiday books, munch on some cookies and recharge your batteries! At this time of the year, it’s easy to get caught up in the mad dash to the mall to buy the “latest and the greatest.” For some people, however, this is a time of great sadness. There are people everywhere who may be sick, lost loved ones, are estranged from family. Taking time out for yourself helps you re-focus on what’s really important this season. Why not bake an extra dozen cookies and drop them off to your lonely neighbor?  A “Thinking of you” card to a person who’s struggling. There are hundreds of ways to cheer up people and guess what, while you’re “paying it forward” that exhausted feeling you had a little while ago is Now Gone!

Paying it forward,

Christmas Writing Prompts

Dear Fellow Journalers,

It’s that time of the year when our thoughts turn to Santa, snow, gifts – you know the drill! Sometimes, though, it takes us awhile to get our creative juices flowing so why not a Holiday Journal? This one can be all about preparing, memories, traditions and family.

Usually I end my journal posts with prompts, but in this case, I thought I’d start with them. So here they are:

  1. Pretend you’re one of Santa’s elves. Write a journal post about your day.

2  Create a Top 10 List of your favorite Christmas songs. Download them onto your device and listen to them while you bake or write out cards.

  1. Pretend that you can choose one gift that will be given to each child in the world. What gift would it be and why.

  2. Write about you favorite Christmas movie or book.

  3. Finish the sentence: This Christmas I hope…

  4. Create a new holiday tradition for your family. Write about what you would do and why.

  5. What was the best Christmas present you ever received?

  6. It’s your turn to plan Christmas dinner. What are you making?

  7. Have you ever ridden in a “one horse open sleigh”?

  8. What do Santa’s elves do on their day off?

 

Enjoy your day,

~Sallie
