Why writing makes you happier

“Research by Laura King shows that writing about achieving future goals and dreams can make people happier and healthier. Similarly, there’s plenty of evidence that keeping, there’s plenty of evidence that keeping a gratitude journal can increase happiness and health by making the good things more salient.”

Writing is key to me. Although it was not before I gave up that I wanted to be a writer that it gave me pleasure. Maybe there was a kind of have to be in it that made it more a striving to success than being in the moment. These are the three things that a get from writing:

1) It brings me clarity, if I write it down I can see things in perspective, I see what is what and how it can work out for me.

2) It gives me purpose and direction, writing is an act of magic, when you write down you can predict the future, I almost always make these things reality. The act of writing alone gives me purpose.

3) It gives a boost to my creativity, my brain starts to work when I’m writing, it unfolds what was hidden before and creates new perspectives.

The book that inspired me the most to get my writing rolling was The Artist Way from Julia Cameron. The book is set up as a 12-week course to uncover your creativity. After that, I started writing in my journal every day. I write whatever comes up to me. Afterward, I feel lighter and more at peace. And in my case: does writing make me happier? Hell yeah!

Being in Bali: 3 life lessons I learned

Ganesh in Ubud

This year in September I went on a three week holiday to Bali. One of the questions I took with me was: how I could create a better life for myself? I was looking for a life of fulfillment and purpose. These are the three answers I got during the trip:

1) Work where you feel best

The first place I visited was Canggu, a place near the beautiful Bali beaches. Canggu breathes creativity. Everywhere the eye can see are nice coffee places, vegan food, yoga, and art-related places to go. Here I realized this is how I want to craft my life. The Canggu community comes from all over the world, which makes it very inspiring. I realized this is how I want to craft my life: Create beautiful ideas and feel free to work wherever I want.

2) Spirituality is in everyday life

When you get up early in the morning you see women with their offerings going to the home temples. You smell the scent of incense. It’s something you not will easily forget. They perform this act with gratitude and graciousness. When Balinese greet each other they often use the phrase: Om Swastiastu. Wich means: Oh God, I hope all goodness (safety, happiness, and prosperity) comes from all directions. That holiness I could feel in my contact with the people. So I promised myself not to take daily life for granted: every day is holy.

3.) Taking risks is a good thing

Before my holiday I was scared as hell to go on a motorbike. The traffic in Bali is so busy and chaotic that I even got panicked when I thought about it. But I decided to just do it. And I was rewarded. I traveled through mountains, along with the see, and to beautiful temples. I made a trip a thought I wasn’t able to. It gave me confirmation that I am on the right track: taking risks will be rewarded.

So these are a few things I learned in Bali. Traveling made me see my life with clear eyes. There are two things I want to share with you. One is a link to my friend Natalie Dissel who lives on Bali: she, a jewelry designer, is a pure example of someone who lives the Bali life of freedom. The other is a course I did while I was on my way. This free training helped me to see that it’s possible to live the life that I want.
