Day #12: Journaling

A Tool in the Toolbox

I began journaling when I was a teenager. I wrote in my blank book when I wanted to express what I was feeling. Writing in a journal would fill large blocks of time for me as I stared at the blank pages of my journal.

Years later while I was raising children and wearing many hats, I had a life changing experience that emphasized the value and importance of each precious day.

I needed to journal again and wanted to feel the comfort of writing in a journal but did not have the luxury of time I once had.

Jiffy Journal was born. I created a unique journaling format that is a quick, easy way to acknowledge feelings, guide behavior and build a history of valuable information.

We are excited to help MHC reach their MHC@Home Fundraising Goal by donating 15% of all Jiffy Journal sales to MHC during the month of May.

Journaling is a wonderful form of self-care.

Jiffy Journal is a great self-care tool.
