Self-Love Journaling Prompts for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! Regardless of your romantic status it can be a difficult day. I really really want to encourage you to have a wonderful day, even if it’s only because you’re being super kind and loving toward yourself. How do you feel about Valentine’s Day? Are you looking forward to it? Dreading it? Completely ambivalent towards it? First I want you to check out the completely free and utterly awesome Be Your Own Valentine ebook (it will be sent out on February 13th!). It’s full of ideas to help you celebrate in a way that nourishes you. This will be my first ever Valentine’s Day where I’m head-over-heels in love. And let’s not forget that I’m 33. I’ve spent my fair share of Valentine’s Day single and lonely, in a relationship and lonely, and generally miserable. Until I changed my mindset. I am an eternal optimist, even…

Bullet Journaling: Inside my Self-Love Planner

Four days ago, my mother passed away. She was in and out of the hospital quite often in January and as things began to look really grim I found myself in full-on freak out mode. I was already dealing with a stressful life situation so when all of this happened I felt myself spiraling out of control. I’ve talked about anxiety here, and here, and here. And the last month and a half was probably the most intense and unrelenting period of anxiety I’ve had in my entire life. It was complete with the anxious tummy with no appetite and periods of intense morning anxiety. I often felt on the verge of having a panic attack, and most days I stayed on that edge, if not crossing over it. I was dealing with obsessive intrusive thoughts. Let me tell you how fun that is. Imagine that someone makes a 10-minute movie…

Inside my Self-Love Workbook (September)

Happy September you lovely people! As is my ritual every month, I pull out my Self-Love Workbook and I start writing, planning, and creating goals. It’s a way to organize my thoughts and let go of everything that happened in the month before (Ye Gods, August was tough for me!) and plan for all the things that I want to do in the coming month. (If you’re interested in the pens/stickers/washi tape I use, check out this link) Like I said, August was a hard one. It started with the eclipse and then my birthday and I felt so many things in my life crumbling but in ways that feel like they are meant to be. I feel like there’s some unveiling happening within me. It’s heavy stuff. It’s good stuff. I’ve also been keeping track of my moods and I saw a lot of anger and frustration at first and…

Bullet Journaling For Self-Care + Mental Health

When I created the Self-Love Workbook I really wanted it to be a tool that you could use not just for self-care, but for all areas of your life. That’s why, instead of just being your standard workbook full of questions, it also has coloring pages, a day planner, and a monthly review section. I was just getting into bullet journaling when I created the SLW so I really wanted something that had space for you (and me!) to just go with it. You can customize it to your heart’s content! What is bullet journaling? Bullet journaling is quick and easy free-form journaling. It’s less about writing paragraphs of your thoughts and more about getting them out however they come, specifically making bullet points to keep track of your thoughts or to-do lists. Traditional bullet journaling is all about lists. Each bullet point represents something different. Your average dot means…
