I was caught off guard the other day when in my FaceBook group, I asked them to journal about a specific topic, and someone wrote that they didn’t know what journaling was. So let’s talk about journaling. What is it? How is it helpful? Are there specific problems where journaling is particularly helpful? What might make it hard to do? It’s a great tool in many instances, but there can be problems and we’ll talk about what to consider as you might choose to begin.

SelfWork’s listener email today is from someone with perfectly hidden depression who reached out — and didn’t quite know why. She simply followed her heart and her gut — which can be awesome to do.

You can hear more about healthy mental health habits and many other topics by listening to Dr. Margaret’s new podcast, SelfWork with Dr. Margaret Rutherford. Subscribe to this website and receive her weekly blog posts and podcasts!
