Publishers Notes

Do you find that you often go through your day without taking the time to review it as a whole, and so have little connection or justification for your own decisions and direction in life? If this sounds like experiences you have had, you are not alone. The good news is there is a simple way to begin to work on and improve these aspects of your life. The simple practice of keeping a daily diary has been proven to provide an extensive mental health benefit, especially as it relates to anxiety, stress, and dealing with traumatic events. In addition to the positive effects keeping a journal has on mental health, there is also research to suggest physical health benefit to the practice as well, and writing for five minutes each day is much easier to commit to than the gym. If you have ever wondered how keeping a journal might help you in your life, then this book will answer exactly that. In this book, we will explore:
