Personal journal

A journal helps reveal your progress when you stick with a treatment program. Individual achievements may be small, but they can add up to significant changes over time. The journal can be brought to a physician and reviewed. To make the most of a journal, you should note weekly:

  • Exercise periods
  • Joint protection strategies
  • Beneficial dietary changes
  • Methods used to cope with pain and stress
  • Attendance at arthritis classes
