No, you can just write on a piece of paper every time you start ruminating. I wouldn’t recommend it, it’s pretty pointless. You know when you’re ruminating or not and the more you’re tracking it’s likely to become a new compulsion
Interesting I heard that tracking it helps reduce it and helps you see progress
@Anonymous I don’t see how that could help you reduce anything. I can see how it can help you recognize it but for me after about a month it became a compulsion then I just obsessed about all the times I ruminated and didn’t write it down. About a month after I stopped writing it down I finally recognized when I was doing it and was able to stop
@Justmesadly I just asked my therapist about and she said it’s really important to track your rumination time because it holds you accountable. Everyone is different though.
@Anonymous That’s great
