Other Journal Tips to Try

Pen & Paper Journaling
Now many people feel that they do not have time for journaling, but it does not have to take long. You can journal for 10 to 15 minutes or even just 5 minutes. Another concern is privacy and worry that someone will read your journal. If you have a physical “book” type of journal, you can keep it in a safe place or lock it in a filing cabinet or other secure location. Alternately, there are hard cover journals that you can buy or order online that come with a lock and key.

Electronic Journaling
Another option is writing in the notes section of your phone and ensuring that others do not have access to your passcode, email yourself to your personal email or writing in a word document on a password protected computer, laptop or tablet.

The Land is a Natural Healer

As Indigenous people, we know that the land is a natural healer and that the land will always heal us and protect us. If you are able to, an even better alternative is to go for a walk in the bush and talk to a tree. If you live near a lake or river, you can also talk to the water. You can also offer sema (tobacco) to the water or a fire and talk to these elements if you practice traditional ways. Regardless of your religious or spiritual background, you can always access the land as a natural healer. If you go to church, consider going to the church sometime when you can be alone and just speak to God, our Creator or just spend some quiet time journaling there.
