Journal Through the Days of Corona

Journal for Joy, 5 Minutes At A Time

Can journaling 5 minutes at a time help you navigate the stress, worry and uncertainty of corona virus and social distancing guidelines in effect across most of the US until at least April 30? Join me April 1-30, 2020 to find out for yourself — and help me gather some data.

I am passionate about showing others how to get words out onto their journal pages for clarity, stress busting and personal growth. These days of corona are the perfect time to discover how to:

  • Leverage the 5-Minute Sprint to quickly identify and shift your energy.
  • Honor your inner wisdom as you fill the pages of your journal.
  • Hear the whispers of your heart guiding your thoughts and actions.
  • Harness your own voice to create positive change.
  • And above all, love your life and feel joy in the days of corona.

Participants have immediate access to the classroom where I will share video lessons, prompts, and a short questionnaire for completion after each journal write. Participants will be part of a research project to assess the benefits of journaling during the stressful days of Corona virus. The good news: you don't have to be a writer or devote a lot of time to reap the benefits of journaling. All you need is a pen, a journal, and three 15-minute sessions per week that are all about YOU.

Inspired by my 20 years of journaling, my training with Kathleen Adams, a journal therapy pioneer, and seeing what works for writers and non-writers alike, Journal for Joy offers a proven format to help you face a blank page, jot down your heartfelt thoughts, and discover your own way to clarity, stress busting and growth.

The videos and journaling prompts will be based
on my handcrafted inspiration cards, which have
proven to be a very creative way to explore life
transitions, shifts and new priorities.


This is something special... to be part of a research study designed to help you explore the whispers of your heart during the days of corona virus. Click on the Enroll in the Course for FREE at the top or bottom of the page. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me HERE.
