Identifying stress that matters is the first step for dealing with stress that increases resistance and makes it difficult to stay on course.

In our experience, the best way to perform a stress inventory is by journaling.


As you’ve probably guessed, journaling requires you to be mindful. Journaling creates a snapshot of how stress is affecting your life. 

Meditation is mindful work too—and is another option—but it takes time to learn how to meditate. With journaling, you can start today.

We understand that not everyone wants to write stuff down, but we’d like you to give it a try.

A stress inventory can be tremendously helpful for gaining insight into stress that matters.
