One of the biggest problems I have always run into when trying to journal has been sitting down to do it. When there is something I have to do, I tend to put it off. When it comes to journaling though, I have always felt a lot of resistance to doing it (Hey, I have TMS of course I resist exploring my emotions). One idea I recently came across was to just give myself five minutes instead of a longer chunk of time. I think this can really be helpful to people, who like me, have difficulty putting pen to paper. If you just set a timer for five minutes, it seems like it will be more manageable. It seems a lot easier to fit five minutes into your day then a 30 minute chunk. The other idea - if this is too much - is to just right down 6 words describing your day. No sentences just six words about your idea or how you feel. This seems much more manageable to me. It may be short, and it may not really get deep into your past, but I think we can express a lot in six words. I will start trying this and let everyone know how it goes.
