Keeping a self-care journal helps you gain a real-time understanding of your daily habits. Tracking your sleep, physical activity, nutrition, stressors, and goals can give you a better understanding of how you are feeling and why. Knowing your routine helps you figure out what switches are actually working for you. In a recent study, people who kept a journal that included nutrition lost twice as much weight as those who didn’t. Also, journaling can not only help you achieve your goals, you can also share the same information you have accumulated and what you’ve learned with others on the same journey!
