What does the research say?
"People who engage in expressive writing report feeling happier and less negative than before writing. Similarly, reports of depressive symptoms, rumination, and general anxiety tend to drop in the weeks and months after writing about emotional upheavals."

Hi, I'm Josie.
After years of being the World Champion of burnout, I finally decided ENOUGH. Life with workaholism, perfectionism and self-neglect wasn't working for me anymore.
I needed to do something about it. I needed to change. This was when I definitively chose to drop old priorities and pick up new priorities. I dropped old habits and picked up new habits.
Through the ups and downs, I saw and felt the power of positive self-talk. I wanted to share that with the world and today I have The World's #1 Affirmations Podcast.
Journaling Pod will help you understand the tools, techniques and timing for establishing an effective and consistent journaling practice.
There's eight sections, each features video lectures and worksheet to help you apply the material. And it's interactive so feel free to share your questions or comments in the comments section.
And all the lectures total 70 minutes so you can get through it in just one morning, afternoon or evening!
