Download a transcript.

In this next installment of my Hungry for More series, I talk about a practice that is near and dear to my heart: journaling. Pulling from both personal experience and scientific studies, I discuss how journaling has been shown to have numerous mental and physical health benefits. I also make recommendations for how you can get started with your own journaling practice and experience the awareness, self-healing, and transformative change that can come with it.


  • Learn how journaling can help with behaviors like rumination and brooding.
  • Explore the impact that journaling can have on your mood.
  • Find out what physical benefits journaling can offer and how the mind and body are connected.
  • Take away some of my recommended journaling prompts.
