Often we reflect in writing or meditation. There are many forms this can take. However, merging movement and art-making can allow us to tap into another form of our inner reflections. Here is a simple technique that can be applied at the beginning or end of the day that can help us document the contrast of our feelings:
Paper/Sketchbook and any preferred material item (eg. colored pencils, markers, watercolors).
This is a simple way to check-in, and allow our movement and creativity to guide us into recognizing our energy levels. Like if we are in need of more rest, or need to go out for a walk! This is one of the many methods to develop and deepen our self-awareness on a busy day.
