Social Psychologist Dr. James Pennebacker is a leading expert on the power of journaling. Wikipedia notes that “over the course of his career, Pennebaker has studied the nature of physical symptoms, health consequences of secrets, expressive writing, and natural language, and has received grants from the National Science Foundation, The National Institutes of Health, the US Army Research Institute, and other federal agencies for studies in language, emotional and social dynamics.”

So there mounting evidence that regular journal writing POSITIVELY impacts your mind, body and spirit! Daily stories of things that happen in your life each day are worth jotting down in a notebook to keep forever.

Today we’ll talk about specific topics you can write about and how to organize your thoughts into sections or categories for easy recall.

As I discussed in last week’s show...How you can capture your own stories, your joys and sorrows won’t take you more than 20 minutes each day. It’s the basis of my fourth book, My Personal Journal, Chronicle Your Life One Day At A Time. Listen to today’s show and find out how scientific data proves you should journal for long lasting health!
