No one can determine the nature of your pain better than you. When you’re living with chronic pain, it may be hard to remember exactly when you felt pain, what you were doing at the time, and what medications or treatments you used to ease it.
According to a 2019 survey from the American Cancer Society, 1 in 3 cancer survivors reported experiencing pain.
Using a daily pain diary is an effective way for cancer patients to track the details of pain. This is valuable information for your health care provider to understand the cause of your pain and help you manage it.
Whether you want to better understand chronic pain, establish healthy habits, or conduct a mindful body scan, these printable journals will help you stay organized.
Healthy Habits Tracker: People who incorporated five healthy habits into their life increased their life expectancy and decreased their risk of chronic illness, according to a January 2020 study published in the journal BMJ. Logging healthy habits is an effective way to ensure they stick. Record sleep, exercise, healthy eating, sufficient water intake and medications and supplements are taken each day.
Mindfulness tracker: Pain is a physical and an emotional sensation. Research shows that mindfulness and meditation don’t necessarily reduce the intensity of pain, but it does reduce the unpleasantness. Use this mindfulness activity to conduct a body scan. Start at the top of your head and scan down to your toes, noticing any unpleasant sensations and marking them on the diagram.
