Why & How You Should Journal (If You Don't Already)

In the third grade at a parent teacher conference, my teacher told my Dad that I needed to start keeping a journal to develop my writing skills. That very same evening we stopped at Staples and bought my first black journal that would be the beginning of a new habit. 

Now, here we are and I'm still keeping journals. Not only are they interesting to look back on, but they also provide a new form of utility on this journey of adult self-discovery. This one activity, if done intentionally can be so impactful. 

Make Your Schedule Your Sidekick

There are two dueling spirits living inside of me. One is the Type A Control Freak who schedules and plans everything. The other is the procrastinator who loves to do things based on how she’s feeling. On any given day there’s no telling who’ll win. While I’d love to leave it up to chance, I’ve realized that I had to find a way to appease both parts of me.
