Journaling offers a wealth of health benefits supported by scientific research. In this webinar, we will explore the essence of journaling, delve into the insights provided by scientific literature, and explore three distinct journaling methods that you can readily incorporate into your life. During the session, Dr. Bob will guide you through various journaling exercises at different intervals. 

Rest assured that your journal entries are entirely private, as this is a personal journey of self-discovery and reflection. Be sure to join with a pen/pencil and paper/journal. 

This webinar is designed for faculty, staff, residents, fellows, and postdocs. No prior journaling experience is necessary; all UCSF employees are welcome to join to experience the benefits of this transformative practice.
