    Who am I?

    Cassie Journigan


    My Experiences with Who Am I?:

    In answering the who, perhaps you’ll uncover the why “I’m Nobody! Who are you? Are you – Nobody – too?” It may not be what reclusive poet Emily Dickenson meant when she wrote those lines, but I’ve always seen a child hiding behind her hands, hoping no one would see her.

    Men Matters: Journaling as Stress Relief for Men Who Care

    Lynda Monk

    This article originally appeared on

    We often don’t talk about men as caregivers.  The focus is often on women as caregivers, and indeed, women are caregivers, often at higher rates in both the personal and professional realms.  However, men care too!

    Many men are stay-at-home fathers, are caregivers to aging parents, raise special needs children, or are partners to someone who requires care due to illness or other health-related needs. Some men are in caregiving professions such as healthcare, social work, long-term care, education, counselling, and are change agents where caring is at the occupational core. 

    All caregivers need tools and practices that can help them prevent caregiver stress and burnout, common risks that can result from the other-focused nature of caring that might leave an individual depleted and overwhelmed themselves.

    Health Matters: How to Design a Cozy Journaling Space

    Stacy Fisher

    Journaling can take place anywhere, but designating a special space could make your journaling ritual more enjoyable and effective.

    Hygge (pronounced “hue-guh”), is a Danish word that means cozy, homey, warm, and tranquil. And it’s been gaining popularity in recent years. In hygge-inspired designs, special attention is given to elements that bring joy and a sense of coziness. The idea behind it is to encourage the savoring of small joys in life.

    In this article, you’ll learn how to design a cozy journaling space that enhances comfort, maximizes joy, and boosts creativity.

    Money Matters: Do you feel financially secure?

    Michelle Cornish

    How To Create Financial Security Today

    I’ve been thinking about security a lot lately, although maybe not in the way you might think. After a crazy heat wave earlier this summer, the area where I live, BC, Canada is suffering from drought and forest fires. Many of the neighboring communities, including where my parents live have been put on evacuation alert or been ordered to leave their properties.

    One day, the smoke was so bad that it blocked out the sun and it was dark in the afternoon. I felt like I was in an apocalyptic film. Of course, I’m a writer, so I may be a tad dramatic, but this got me thinking about safety and how nothing else really matters when your physical safety is threatened.

    How Millennials Can Use Journaling as a Stepping Stone to Home Ownership

    Frankie Wallace

    Millennials today have lower homeownership rates than any preceding generation. Data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau shows that millennial homeownership rates fall 20% below that of previous generations. 

    In a world where inflation and higher costs of living make achieving financial independence increasingly difficult, homeownership can feel like a pipe dream. This is especially true for the growing number of millennials saddled with low-paying jobs, student debt, and other financial stressors. Studies show that 70% of “adults ages 18 to 34 received financial support from their parents in the last year, including more than half of those in their early 30s.” 

    All hope is not lost, however; an age-adjusted comparison reveals that at 30 years of age, ownership rates tally at “42% for millennials, 48% for Generation X, and 51% for baby boomers.”

    Janie Kelley

    Do you remember the last time you sat down with a pen and a paper to write something down? What did you write in the last few days except Instagram captions, tweets, Facebook posts or work-related stuff? Do you remember how it made you feel?

    How to Prevent Healthcare Fraud and Abuse

    David Lukić

    Healthcare fraud is costing Americans untold billion dollars per year. Committed thousands of times each day, it continues to grow in popularity. Rank novices and career criminals alike are relentless in attempting to milk honest taxpayers of healthcare benefits, making it impossible to quantify the full impact of this crime.

    If we consider that healthcare premiums and out-of-pocket expenses are now several times what they once were, everyone is a victim of this fraud. Besides, our coverages are lower than ever, and medicare continues to outperform its worst lows.

    As healthcare fraud continues to traverse our country like cancer, it makes a mockery of comprehensive efforts to improve healthcare. Even though policies exist to curtail its spread, it appears that taxpayers need to play a primary role to prevent healthcare fraud effectively. This article probes the significant issues in healthcare fraud and how anyone can avoid becoming a victim.
