With a new year can come new stress and maybe some old anxieties that stuck around after the holidays. Health and wellness isn’t all about physical well being, it’s also all about mental function as well. One method for staying on track with resolutions for the new year is journaling. It’s not only a good way to stay on track with healthy eating and exercise, it’s a great way to track emotions and stress levels. Reflecting on past posts can help pinpoint the cause of anxiety and emotional difficulties which can help in creating a plan for dealing with stress before it becomes out of control.
If you’d like to give journaling a try this year, don’t go out a pay a fortune for an expensive journal. You can either make one, like our sister site, Crafting a Green World shows us how, using recycled materials, or you can try one of these ideas.
