- How Do You Feel Today? "This is possibly the most common prompt also called a feelings journal. I often recommend to clients that they keep a feelings journal between sessions and to spend a little time each day drawing how I feel today using colors, shapes, lines or images." I like the idea of drawing your feelings instead of writing them down.
- Spontaneous Imagery. "Spontaneous imagery can mean many things; most often it refers to creating a scribble or free-form lines and looking for images within those lines." This is a great pressure-less exercise - no need for perfect sketches - just scribble away.
- Dream Journal. "If you have time first thing in the morning after you wake up, try keeping a journal of visual images recalled from your dreams. Try writing down some key words or phrases first, followed by drawing of the main elements of your dream." Again, similar to the above feeling exercise, you sketch your dream images.
