Journaling and meditation

Today we wrap this season up with Mikita Smith who is a fellow podcaster and the voice behind the "Thym 4 Tea with Mikita Podcast," where she invites us all to embrace the beautifully messy aspects of life.

As a nurse, motivational speaker, and certified meditation instructor, she's not just talking the talk; she's walking the walk, daring others to live a beautifully unbalanced life.

Her approach to self-care is refreshingly real, advocating for a life that finds beauty in the chaos and to dance in the rain. Mikita's down-to-earth conversations and insights challenge us to break free from the conventional, celebrate our imperfections, and discover our true selves in the beautiful imbalance.

We had a great conversation about:


Her journaling journey


How she encourages herself through her journaling


Her first solo writing retreat - the gift she gave to herself


Her meditation journey 


The impact that meditation has on her journaling, and how these both impact her life


How this also contributes to her fiction writing, and to episodes for her podcast


Tips for starting a journaling practice


Take a listen to her guided meditation here (and check out her entire podcast - it's amazing!)
