Write a short paragraph about something you have always dreamed of doing. Write why it is important to you and how it would make you feel to do it.
At the end of the five minutes, reflect on what it feels like to see your dream written down in front of you.
Some people may find this exercise challenging as they perhaps have limited their options due to being diagnosed with a mental illness.
This is an opportunity to encourage you to dream big and if you feel any discomfort to think about how that feels for you and encourage you to keep going – this is what we call ‘sitting with discomfort’. The more of these reflective activities you do, the less discomfort you will feel – and remember at any time you can stop if you need to.
