Updated Bullet Journal Spread | June 2021

I meant to post this end of last month, but I figured I wait a little to see if the spread I currently have is working for me. I shared on my Instagram last month that I changed my bullet journal and how I track and write everything on it.

Bullet journaling played a role on my life. I have and still trying to keep doing bullet journal for almost few years. Unfortunately, most of them do not work out – not the journal itself but how they were setup. One thing I like about bullet journaling is that you can customize it the way you wanted it.

Life Lately: Holidays, Festival and BTS

It’s been a while since I last updated my blog with a personal posts and also a way for me to do a mini photo dump.

Happy September! How fast was this year, right? I can’t believe we’re already on our month nine and soon it’ll be Halloween, Thanksgiving then Christmas and New Year! As I was finishing this post, I was seeing light at the end of this pandemic, but because of the new variant, everything has to pause and be on lockdown again. This pandemic made me realized a lot, it’s scary but it’s something. I still get anxious going out even though I am fully vaccinated, the thought of going out and being around a whole lot of people still scares me.

Finding Happiness in Small Things

I was listening to the podcast “The Single Millennial” on Spotify when I felt like jotting down some of the stuffs I have in my heart.

I have neglected myself and the small things that made me happy because the world and environment I am currently at right now feels so tight and full of negativity. To start this month – I vowed to myself that even if life throws a bunch of rocks, I will stay optimistic and staying my head high and trying to find happiness in small things.

Self-Care Tips for your Mental Heath

I have struggled for years with anxiety and depression, and one of the things I’ve learned along the journey is just how important self-care truly is. When you hear “self-care” you may have a negative view or you may not. This has become a hot topic phrase and over time has led to some negative stigmas about what it actually means.

Self-care is defined as “the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health; the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress”. It does not just mean pedicures and spa days, although these are great forms of self-care for some people. When you have any sort of mental illness, day to day self-care is important in both maintaining and improving your overall well-being. For me, this means less anxiety (or responding to it more proactively) and decreased risk of a depressive episode.
