Tresa Leftenant and her guest Michelle Kaplan, Author, Self-Discovery Coach and Corporate Poet discuss how expressive writing can reduce stress and anxiety, particularly when we’ve gone through, or are going through difficult times or a traumatic event. Michelle describes how she was drawn to writing as a way to help her figure out difficult life events in her life. One day, as she was looking at the chaos in her mind reflected on paper, certain phases seemed to rise off the page. Those phrases became a poem. Her first book of poetry “and: a love story within” was recognized as Amazon’s #1 Hot New Release for Inspirational Poetry. Her second book will be released mid-summer. Listen to how you can use writing to reduce anxiety, explore your core genius and expand your creativity with Tresa Leftenant and Michelle Kaplan.
