No matter what our health challenges, we all need to be able to take charge of our lives. But what we need even more is a practical way to gain insight into our health issues and then gauge how our lives are really going.
Chrystal Benson is a nurse who relies on her own life experiences and those of her clients to share a three-month diary that will help anyone track daily life activities, discover what is missing, recognize patterns that both serve and disrupt health and life, and then develop a plan to get back on track to better health, improve well-being, and maximize quality of life. Through a comprehensive diary, Chrystal guides others to accurately measure five aspects of living—diet, sleep quality, exercise, mood, and social contacts—and then ultimately repair or repeat patterns and habits accordingly. Included are Keeping Well and Relapse Prevention Plans that encourage others to ensure that their voices, beliefs, opinions, and attitudes are heard not just by themselves, but also by others.
My Complete Diary is a self-directed tool that encourages anyone to develop insight into how health issues impact their lives and then readjust behaviors, habits, and patterns to improve well-being.
