Health Tip: Create a Food-and-Activity Journal

(HealthDay News) -- Jotting down your eating and exercising habits helps you track healthy habits and foster new ones.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests:

  • Logging what you ate and drank, starting when you woke and ending when you went to bed. Include how much of each food you ate or drank.
  • Writing down what you did to exercise each day, and for how long.
  • Making a commitment to daily journaling, and thinking about what you've learned from your journal.
  • Keeping your journal with you throughout the day, so you can stay on track without forgetting key activities.
