WCS | Using your 5 senses for journaling
When we sign up to blog on the WCS blog we get to choose from the different topics; write, click and scrapbook. I usally sign up for the two last, but this time I thought I´d challenge myself and take on a write post. You see, journaling is one of my weaknesses in memorykeeping. I love seeing all the layouts and PL spreads with lots of words and stories on them, but I am not good at it at all.
In the recent months I have been attending a mindfulness class. I deal with anxiety quite a lot and the pratice of being here and now can really help with that. For my post today I did just that, I sat down in my back garden and was mindul of my surroundings and I had a little help from my five senses: sound, sight, taste, touch and scent. I made my layout based on that.
I have a 6x8" personal album and opted to make a pocket page for it. I choose one of the multiple pocket page protectors from Simple Stories that I had on hand and it fit my journaling perfectly since I divided it up for each sense.
Have you tried this before? Perhaps you can do a sound collage, sit down somewhere and close your eyes and just record the things you hear. It feels great and can make a great jumping point for a little memorykeeping at the same time!
