Keeping a Diary

In CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) clients are often recommended to record their anxious thoughts and their daily activities in a diary.

This can help to distance you from the experience of anxiety or depression if you are feeling negative and it can also give you a more objective record of how your day goes - of any good points as well as the negative things that you may have a tendency to focus on if you are feeling stressed or down.
