You probably didn’t know how to express your feeling that is why you are reading this. It’s ok, you are not alone, there are many people who can’t express.
So here are some ways discovered to express your feelings in some creative ways.
Create a sculpture of your feelings
If your feelings are something you let to go off, make a sculpture using clay, recycled material etc. and put it somewhere where you will see it every day. When you feel ready to let go of those feelings, rip it up, stomp on it, burn it, throw it in the trash…whatever you like.
Draw you feelings
Use shapes, images and colours to express how you feel. Our minds have different ways of perceiving things so colours and shapes hold different meanings for us too.
Red might represent love or passion for some while it may be a sign of hate or evil for others. The same happens with the shapes, pointy shapes may represent something dangerous while circular objects may feel more positive.
Paint your feelings
Throw paint on a canvas, use different brush strokes to create different shape and textures. Be free and let the paint speak your feelings.
Dance or Sing your feelings
Use your body movement, rhythm and music to express your feelings.
Write a song, sing a song, improvise different sounds or melodies that reflect your current state.
Yell your feelings
There is something inside which can’t get out and we want letting it out in one gasp of air. It happens especially when we have a big build up of feelings.
If you are feeling frustrated let the frustration out by running as fast as you can on a treadmill. If you are feeling angry, let it out by pushing up those heavy weights. If you are feeling excited and positive, let that energy out as you do a body combat classes or jump that skipping rope.
Write a letter, poem or journal
Express your feelings through a poem. Don’t hesitate to write, it’s not a tough task to do.
Write down what actually you feel. For example, I feel scared, I feel excited, I feel embarrassed, I feel broken.
Write a letter to someone about what are you experiencing and how it makes you feel. You don’t need to send it. Then formulate what you would have answered if you have received the same letter. Now write the reply. By this way, you will gain clarity.
