The Weather Inside Me

A sample page from Notes to Self: a journal for self-care. Use as a calming moment to check in with how you’re feeling and notice any internal weather patterns throughout the week.

Note: Try observing your feelings with curiosity rather than with judgment. When a new feeling simmers up inside you (especially an uncomfortable one), take a few deep breaths and try to name it. “I’m feeling ___”. Then continue on with your day. Most feelings will pass by quickly like a light shower. If you find the weather inside you is relentlessly stormy, what might help? Step away from what you’re doing for a moment. Get some fresh air. Move your body. Reach out to a friend. Take a nap, if you can!
