Research has shown that journaling practices can have a range of health benefits including reduction of inflammation, promotion of mental wellbeing, and even improved ventricular function. Whether it be through a focus on gratitude or expressive writing, journaling allows you to have an uninhibited discussion with yourself, oftentimes leading to an “aha” moment that was hiding under the surface all along. In this mini-episode, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Leonard Calabrese, Dr. Andrea Pennington, Matthew McConaughey, and Dr. Rangan Chatterjee about the psychological and mental benefits that various types of journaling can have on our overall health and wellbeing.
