How to Use Wonderful Workbooks

Step 1: Purchase a Philosophical Processing Journal. Step 2: Read the educational material it provides for you on the topic (emotions, anxiety, guilt). Step 3: Use the journal prompts to write in your journal to create some deeper insight into yourself. Step 4: Read what others have written in their journals (scroll down to read the latest posts). Step 5: Email your journal entries to get published: You never know the power of your words and how they will connect with the struggles of others.
