Write in a journal
We began using a journal back in 2015 after my mother died. It was a sad, stressful time and I made the decision that I preferred to get my feelings down on paper than live in all the pain. It was the best thing I did at the time. Here are some benefits of using a journal for a life reset:

Journaling Tips for Your Best Life Reset
✓ Write by hand – this has been the most powerful experience for me. Each morning I write 3 pages using pen and paper. At first, I wasn’t sure how this was going to work out and now it has been six months since I began this project. All I can say about my experience is I look forward to my writing each morning. Give it a go and you might find it is the same for you.
