COPING STRATEGIES Chapter 10: Journal Writing 1. Center yourself: before you start writing, take a minute to relax (deep breathing, listening  to a relaxing song, drinking a cup of tea or coffee).  We can’t immediately transition from  one activity to the next, especially when different parts of our brain are involved. Allow  yourself some transition time. 2. Label your journal entries (day, date, year). It’s often helpful to re-read previous entries  because you learn things from them that you didn’t realize at the time of writing. (For  example, you may write that there’s a great deal of tension at home, but your parents  keep saying everything’s fine, so you decide it’s just your imagination. Next week one of  your parents loses his/her job. By re-reading this entry you can see that you were  correct: the tension really was there, and next time you can trust your intuitions.)

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
