It's Time to Write Your Own Story
Let’s stop saying “New Year, New Me” and start appreciating who we are. Now wait, that doesn’t mean we can’t make positive changes and grow – in fact, it’s part of the self-love process.
Here are three awesome tools to help you reflect, be mindful, set goals, and hold yourself accountable.
Did you know that 40 million adults in the United States combat anxiety disorders each year1? So many times, we get caught up in our busy schedules and don’t seem to notice the anxiety we build up internally until it all comes bursting out. Sometimes, we don’t even realize that the stress we are experiencing has manifested into anxiety. The Anxiety Journal is designed to help you address and overcome these anxious obstacles through its 30 journaling prompts and worksheets.
It is so easy for us to get stuck in our own ways. If you’re like me, you know what you like and stick to it, because anything unfamiliar may be a bit intimidating. However, there is no comparable rush to the intrinsic reward of personal growth. No matter what areas in your life you’re hoping to improve, the Growth Mindset Journal can help you through its 30 journal prompts and worksheets designed to help you change those self-limiting beliefs so that you can adopt a growth mindset and actualize your potential.
Sometimes my iPhone and Google Calendar fail me. Well, it is also my fault that I’m not double-checking my meetings and events in my phone, but it’s just so easy to have the intention of checking your calendar when a text pops up and reminds you of something you saw on Facebook which makes you think about what’s happening on Instagram and now we completely forgot about checking our calendar. The Happiness Planner is a beautiful planner designed to help you not only plan and manage your schedules & to-do lists, but also live a truly happy and fulfilled life by creating a life in alignment with who you are and embracing the power of positive thinking, mindfulness, gratitude, and self-development. This physical planner allows us to stay mindful and won’t have windows popping up to distract you.
Now that we have discovered three awesome tools to help us write our own story, we’re gonna need something to help us literally write.
Inspirational Pencils and Pens
Team Thaimae: I know I am not perfect and neither is my writing, which is why I prefer the option to erase. The Inspirational Pencils are my style in that it’s also easier for me to write or draw in different shades and thicknesses depending on how sharp or dull my pencil is. These old-school-style pencils also have a nostalgia factor because I used to write stories in my free time as a child (before mechanical pencils took over the world!)
Team Tammy: I love the sleek classy look of the Inspirational Pens. I can use them when I am journaling and carry them around when I go to business meetings. Each pen has its own unique phrase, and they serve as nice little uplifting reminders throughout my day in whatever I am doing. Plus, who cares if you make a mistake? You can scribble or cross it out!
