I love journaling and it’s one of the best things I’ve added to my life. Not to mention, it’s one of my go-to remedies for self-care. Personally, I use journaling to mind dump things that could be blocking aspirations and happiness. We all have things that seep into our minds and distract us. When I started journaling a couple of years ago, I used to do it almost everyday and I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, the hustle and bustle of everyday life made it hard to journal everyday. Well, I recently found an easy way to help me journal everyday; guided journals.
Actually, one of the reasons it was hard to journal everyday is because there were times when I didn’t know what to write. Who gets writers block when trying to journal? This girl, but this is no longer an issue thanks to guided journaling. Keep reading if you’re interested in finding out more about guided journals and their benefits.
I spent this past weekend attempting to get my life together and prepared for 2018. I did some deep cleaning, light organize, and had an abundant amount of self-care. One of the self-care things I did was engulf myself in reading articles and books related to some of my goals for 2018. Reading is a great way to help clear your mind of mental fluff and get your priorities in check. So, I’ve gathered a list of books to read to help you flourish in 2018.
If your interested in some awesome and aspiring reads to get you together this year, keep reading for my suggestions.
“Good Morning, Lovely!” is what should’ve been the first thing you saw when you open my revived newsletter that I sent out this morning!
Yes, after an extra-long hiatus, I’m back to send out weekly newsletters. They have a name; Monday Minute and they should hit your inbox every Monday morning. Keep reading for more reasons to sign-up and a peak into what was in today’s newsletter.
I hope you all survived and enjoyed your 3-day weekend, because I did. Also, I survived not staining any clothes with barbecue sauce this weekend. I celebrate all successes. Although we still have a few weeks left until it’s officially summer, I’m already preparing for it. One thing I already have ready for summer is my summer reading list.
So, if you are looking for summer read suggestions or just a good book to slowly chisel away over the next few months, keep reading for my picks.
Books have always been a love of mine, even when I stopped reading as much as I used to read. However, I always have a book within reach. For example, I usually have between 4-5 different books on my nightstand. Some of these books are books I’m currently reading, next in line to read, and books that I read for moments of motivation. So, I decided to share my current nightstand books.
The book I’m currently reading and almost done with is the Anti 9-5 Guide: Practical Career Advice for Women Who Think Out The Cube. That’s such a long title for a small book. I’ve been slowly reading this book for the past few months. However, don’t let that deter you from thinking that this book sucks, because it’s pretty good. It gives straight the point tips and ideas on how you can break away from you everyday 9-5 job. This book is loaded with advice from different women who have been able to break out away from the cubicle life. I only have a couple of chapters left, but I think I’m actually going to try to finish this up by this weekend.
