Benefits of Journaling for Self Care:

A guided journal is a healing way to check-in with yourself, reflect and work through the challenges in your life. Journaling can also help to reduce anxiety and stress, process your thoughts and build more self-awareness.  Guided journaling can help you to change negative thought patterns and encourage a more positive outlook in your life, including improving your confidence, gratitude and acts of self-care. Plus, it's cost effective - all you need is a pen and journal! A journal that's filled with prompts and activities will also last you a long time and keep you motivated to continue with your self care journey.
