Journaling is more than writing in your diary. For many it is a powerful tool for stress management that can clarify thoughts that lie beneath the surface of our conscious mind. While very helpful as an exercise to manage daily stress, it may be particularly helpful in coping with the stress of a new or chronic illness. Participants will be guided with a choice of topic and specific directions to help navigate thoughts on the topic. Participants will not be required to share their journal writing experience unless they choose to.
