An important part of practicing body awareness is documenting what helps and what doesn't.   Tracking symptoms, coping mechanisms, and food sensitivities can help give you a clearer picture of your body over time.   I highly suggest downloading a symptom tracking app, printing one, or making your own in a journal so that you can practice awareness of your body.   Whatever you choose, make sure its somewhere easily accessible so that you don't forget to use it.   I am currently using Daylio to track my mood and activities, My Calendar to track my cycle and mySymptoms Food Diary and Symptom tracker. I keep them on the home screen of my phone near my thumbs.   ~Caitlin
