SELF CARE: Journaling Guide

Minority Mental Health Month has come to a close, but that doesn't mean we have to stop taking care of ourselves and others. 

Now that we are aware, it's time to take action. We've talked about journaling before on Thoughts Caught in My Fro. If you want to journal, but are not sure where to start - try using our journaling guide. 

I will join the 21-Day Journal Challenge *

Thought Starter

Journal Starter Guide. Download the full version below.

You can download this tool to help you develop the habit of journaling. If you don't know where to start, this will help! Lots of people find keeping a journal useful in understanding feelings, stress, and making decisions or life changes. Remember: there are no right or wrong ways to journal; the key is to write regularly. 

Your journal is personal; you do not have to share it with anyone. However, you might want to bring your journal with you to therapy to help you describe how you have been feeling and functioning over time. 

Use the questions and checklist as "thought starters" on the days when you aren't sure what to write. You can download the guide below. When you enter your email address, you'll get access to other self-care guides from us. No spam, just tools to help you be the best you. 

21-Day Journal Challenge

It takes 21 days to form a habit, so that's what we are going to do. I've never been able to commit to journaling consistently, so I am hoping this accountability challenge will help me do this. Would you consider joining me? For 21 days, we will try to write at least half a page using the journaling guide. You don't have to share what you've written - only that whether or not you were able to commit to writing that day. If you want join, just fill out the form at the top or bottom (you do not have to fill out both) of the page and select 'Yes'.
