    Ease Life’s Transitions in 22 Days

    Kay Butzin

    My  Experiences with Ease Life's Transitions in 22 Days:

    Last October, two months after my 74th birthday and after living single for over twenty years, I listed my condo with a realtor in South Texas and moved to Northern Michigan to live with my partner Ron. At the same time, I won a self-paced journaling course from the CreateWriteNow store, and I chose a most apt title: Ease Life’s Transitions in 22 Days.

    My Review of Love Your Body In 28 Days Journaling Power Challenge

    Self-Love Matters: The Wiley World of Self-Sabotage

    Billie Wade

    Self-sabotage can derail your most prized endeavors and set you up for devastating, life-altering failure, damaged or destroyed relationships, a decimated reputation, and contribute to low self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. Missed opportunities are the most common result. Just as stressful is the disappointment you may feel about a letdown of yourself and others. And, of course, the critical comments of others contribute to your discomfort and disillusionment. To overcome self-sabotage can feel ominous, like an insurmountable rockface. These patterns are breakable with practices you can use anytime with any task or project.

    Health Matters: Whole Health Journaling Challenge Review

    Michelle Cornish

    I've journaled off and on for several years now, mostly at random times. As much as I've tried to make journaling a regular practice, it's more something that I lean on when I need to work things out with pen and paper. Completing the 24-day Whole Health Journaling Challenge has opened my eyes to the benefits of journaling regularly.

    During this challenge I experienced a deeper understanding of my own thoughts and feelings, improved mental clarity, enhanced self-awareness, greater insight into my relationships with others, and increased motivation to pursue my goals.

    Health Matters: Journaling for Whole Health

    Stacy Fisher

    When you hear the words “whole health” what comes to mind? Healthy food? Physical fitness? Getting enough sleep?

    Whole health is just one of many terms used to describe your overall health and well-being. Wholeness implies that you are tending to your unique needs in a holistic way, giving each aspect of your life what it needs—physically, emotionally, spiritually, etc.—to keep you at your best.

    The problem is that most of us tend to our health in a fragmented way, only focusing on our needs when we’re suffering symptoms of an illness, strained relationships, or some other consequence of self-neglect.

    Instead of giving our health the attention it deserves, we put our needs to the side so we can support and manage the needs of others. That’s not inherently wrong or bad (especially for parents and caregivers who are in a particular season of life), but if we consistently shrug away our own needs, we’ll eventually run out of steam. And that means we aren’t able to show up for others the way we want to either.
