Mental Health TIP OF THE DAY

For many of us, the practice of keeping a journal or diary is a lost tradition. Though many of us turned to blank pages as children to record our daily events, most of us gave it up as we got older. As you age, life tends to get more complicated and everyday tasks fill most all of our time.

When was the last time you wrote in a journal? Actually, let's start here: Do you even have a journal? Set a goal for yourself in which you get a journal and record one entry per week. There are no 'right' ways to write in a journal - write whatever you feel like writing.

The practice of journaling is a great way to sit with your thoughts at the end of the day and put the day's events into perspective. It also provides endless entertainment for the future when you can look back and read old entries. Try keeping a journal and you will likely find that you love it once you get going!
