Using a daily wellness planner can be a huge mental health boost. First, it can help you to stay organized in your personal and professional life. Having a place to write down to do lists and other things that you’re tracking is a big stress reducer.
Wellness planners can also be very useful for women with chronic illness who have even more things to keep track of like lab work and other test results, tracking symptoms, food intake, bowel movements, specialists, bills and prescriptions.
Even with all I have going on with my own diagnoses which include IBD, cervical dystonia and chronic fatigue, I’ve never gotten myself organized like I should. And not only that, I’m a special needs mom. My youngest son has Down Syndrome and is a heart patient. There is LOTS to keep track of and we all know how important it is to document everything. And as I get older, I know I can’t rely on memory for everything!
I’m really looking forward to FINALLY getting my health care organizational act together once and for all. Having everything organized and in one place is an enormous time and stress saver. Health isn’t just about your physical health, but mental and emotional health as well. Planners offer many mental health benefits, from reducing stress to diminishing anxiety. As you get organized with important information organized and planned out, you’ll feel so much better and have more time for your own self care.
