Madeline shares in her article: "Make lists of accomplishments or things you want to do in your day as you write."
When we are stressed, it's easy to focus on what is stressing us. Of course it's important to get that all down in our journals. But we can also use it to focus on the good stuff, like what we did well that day, or something that made us smile.
I think it's important to keep a balance between the negative and positive as we journal. This way we don't get overwhelmed by the stress and feel good once we've put pen to page.
