The best way to ask yourself questions is through journaling. Journaling can help you make sense of how you're feeling about a certain person or situation that is troubling or inspiring you. It can also help you understand your triggers. The process of writing down your thoughts as honestly and with as little judgment as possible allows for self-discovery. Helping you prioritize problems, fears, and concerns. Tracking any symptoms day-to-day so that you can recognize and learn ways to better control them. Providing an opportunity for positive self-talk and identifying negative thoughts and behaviors. Journaling helps keep your brain in tip-top shape. Not only does it boost memory and comprehension, it also increases working memory capacity, which may reflect improved cognitive processing.
