One of the things, no – the most helpful thing my young NYU students like to do is journal.

  • Many of them have done so in the past but have stopped along the way.
  • Journaling allows us to actually see our obstacles and how we deal with them.
  • If it’s not your thing that’s alright, just being able to see your growth, remember your progress helps change things in a big way.
  • Progress is best assessed by ourselves – in our own words – rather than relying on observation of others.
