Journaling our thoughts and feelings can have a positive impact on our overall mood and mentality. Likewise, journaling about our habits, cravings, food intake and activity level can help with improving our overall healthy lifestyle.
Suggested questions for your daily craving and habit journal:
Why am I doing this behavior? What need am I trying to fulfill? When did I first have this need? Is this habit or behavior congruent with my personal values? What feelings am I experiencing and why? Who or what does this remind me of? Is this feeling or behavior something that I could question or reevaluate? Am I willing to allow myself to hold onto this belief, habit or feeling now that I know more? What action can I take right now to change this?
