Do you feel overwhelmed by the things you need to do? That feeling can bring negative consequences to our lives. But, a technique has helped me overcome this feeling – The Brain Dump! All the responsibilities and social roles we have these days will get us quickly overwhelmed. We keep pushing our brains to remember all the work, tasks, appointments, etc., which can turn into a huge messy pile of chores. These chores will lead to feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and lots and lots of stress! And this will eventually lead to a pretty dangerous state of mind – a mental breakdown, which is obviously notRead More →

Stickers for planning and bullet journaling is always an overlooked tool. While a few use stickers for bullet journals regularly or occasionally, most people don’t even think of the fantastic possibilities stickers could provide to your planning aesthetic. Because they think of stickers as those super childish ones, they played with when they were kids.  Stickers are exactly what to think they are- those cute tiny images that you can stick to anything (paper, notebooks, picture frames, etc.) When I was a kid, I used to be a sticker freak. I love those tiny little pieces of cute art, which I can paste anywhere toRead More →

It’s so great to see some of the modern calligraphy now in bullet journal spreads. Although calligraphy and hand lettering can be tough, even for artists! It takes a lot of practice to get some of these techniques right, so I’m going to share some of my favorite lettering tutorials.    When you are starting off, its best to use something like Crayola Super Tips to practice with.

They are great pens andRead More →
