If you don’t journal on a regular basis, you absolutely should. Here are a few major benefits.

Patterns — Are you more cranky on Tuesday’s? Your journal is a great place to notice any patterns. Does your diet affect your mood? When are you most productive?

Self Talk — Most of us have pretty bad self talk. Your journal can show you areas to improve. Are you too hard on yourself? Are you holding back?
