Mindfulness, Gratitude and Healthy Living – Journaling with Caroline Gardner
Mindfulness, gratitude and healthy living have all become part of our daily lives, especially living through a global pandemic! We don’t know about you but, it has made us realise that we should be grateful for every little thing no matter how big or small. It has taught us not to take our health for granted and that our mind is the most powerful tool in our body!
Over the years and especially in the last 6 months the art of journaling has been on the rise. So, what is journaling? If you don’t already know it involves the practice of keeping a diary/journal that explores the thoughts and feelings surrounding the events in your life. At the start of the pandemic when people started experiencing their lives being flipped upside down and experiencing emotions they had never felt before, many took pen to paper and started writing down how they felt. By putting pen to paper it helped build control and structure in a time when many had lost their sense of ‘normal.’ By writing thoughts down it helped to break down even the most daunting of tasks. It taught us to take the time each day to write down what we were grateful for and focus on goals we may have put on the back burner. Many realised by doing this and taking time to focus on the good things, helped them have a positive outlook on life.
So, with that in mind we are so excited to launch our Caroline Gardner range of journals and notebooks. Within the range are three different journals all dealing with different areas in your life and two notebooks with motivational/inspirational quotes on the front and plenty of room to write down your thoughts and feelings each day! So let us take you through each one!
Say hello to the ‘Sleep Easy’ journal. Although many of us are still working from home, routine and sleep are even more important and journaling is a great way to monitor this. The ‘Sleep Easy’ journal includes diary pages to set goals and clear your mind before bed. The idea of this journal is to clear your thoughts so you can get a good nights sleep and start the next day with more energy and a fresh approach ready for the day ahead!
The ‘Live Well’ journal features three guided sections for mindful thoughts, fitness goals and meal planning. It is structured and helps you to try new things in little steps.
The ‘Year of You’ journal includes 366 diary pages for daily notes, reflections and thoughts. This can be used as a day-to day to-list or you have the freedom to write all your thoughts down for the day.
Make notes, keep on top of tasks or doodle away with the ‘Make Your Own Magic’ notebook. This small chunky notebook filled with lined pages is the perfect place for you to write down your thoughts, ideas and tasks. Secured with a gold elasticated strap it will help keep your life organised. Also available in green with the slogan ‘Perhaps the Grass Is Green Enough.’
