Grief Journal Printable To Help You Heal In A Healthy Way

grief journal for healthy healing from hurt and loss

I can’t lie…

I got emotional while I was creating this grief journal and I’m not even grieving the loss of a loved one.

That’s how powerful these prompts are.

I looked them over and it tore me up thinking about how I might need these prompts one day when I experience the pain of loss.

If you or someone you know is grieving, I truly believe that journaling is an activity that will help them heal.

That is why I created this journal…to help people heal in a healthy way.

You see what many of us want to do when we are wheeling from losing a loved one is bury the pain.

Maybe then the pain will go away.

Maybe then you won’t hurt so bad.

But let me tell you.

That don’t work.

When you are confronted with the pain of a searing loss you will deal with that pain one way or another.

It will either be in a healthy way or an unhealthy way.Continue reading

7 Anxiety-Reducing Activities To Help You Cope With Stress (Unique Method)!

Top 7 Ways To Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Have you ever lived with something so long that you begin to think it’s normal?

Then you get a clue and you’re like wait I’m not meant to live like this!

I had that realization this week about anxiety.

Although I’ve overcome depression completely and given anxiety more than a few punches, I still am not completely free and I’m guessing you’re not either.

I guess I thought hey as long as my anxiety isn’t paralyzing like it was before then it’s ok to have some anxiety.

But why though?

The goal should be to beat anxiety in the face and win the fight, not settle for being less anxious.

There’s a reason why Jesus said don’t worry over and over again.

He doesn’t want us to use precious brain cells and time worrying when we could be praying to the Father and getting real results.

So in today’s post, I’m going to talk about some anxiety-reducing activities and tips to start beating stress for good.

These are some of the ways that I’ve used to help me at least get a strong grip on anxiety.

But first I’m going to tell you HOW to use these tips because that’s equally as important.

3 amazing benefits of online therapy vs traditional therapy 

Online therapy is a tool that I give major credit to in my mental health journey. 

I promise you, I would not be writing this blog post without having done online counseling many years ago. 

I was too depressed and anxious to actually start a blog and too self-conscious to put myself out there. 

Truth is having a healthy body but an unhealthy mind, so to speak, just won’t cut it y’all. 

I’m nowhere close to where I want to be physically, financially, mentally, or spiritually. 

But I do understand fully that all of these aspects work together to create the healthiest person possible. 

Your mind is a big component of why you do what you do. 

If you feel like everything is a huge struggle and you haven’t tried online counseling yet then I’m going to share with you 3 true benefits that online therapy has vs traditional therapy and which site helped me the most. 

Please stay tuned because I really want you to move the needle from where you are now towards where you want to be. 

Change is possible with online therapy and I’m going to show you just a glimpse of how it can help you!Continue reading

5 Unique Places To Find Friends When You Have None & How Loneliness Affects Your Mental Health (Free Printables)

5 Unique Places To Find Friends When You Have None

Being lonely is one of the most universal and isolating emotions in the world. But you don’t have to feel this way. In this post, I’m going to show you that you are desperately needed and loved. 
I saw a heartbreaking video yesterday.

It was of an English woman who would go to the grocery store just so she could talk to the cashier.

She said that If she didn’t do that she said she could literally go months without talking to another person. What’s even sadder is that she’s not alone.

Loneliness is at an epidemic level. In the UK, an estimated 9 million people are as lonely as this woman.

Are you stuck at home and wondering is there anything life-changing I could be doing with my time? Well I have 19 amazing ideas for you to try while you’re stuck at home on lockdown or whenever you have long stretches of time at home.

I couldn’t pen down one emotion to describe this period of quarantine if I tried.

Bittersweet comes to mind but that’s such an anemic word that I dare not use it for it doesn’t even come close to grasping the depth of this situation that is 2020.

2020 basically just took a wrecking ball to all of our lives. Whether it’s a lost job or a lost loved one or the fear of experiencing either, no one has gone through this period unscathed.

Signs Of An Emotionally Healthy Woman

Does it sometimes feel like the world has gone stark raving mad and they are trying to drive you to crazy town with them?

Sometimes it’s people trying to pull you into their drama at work (“Girl, did you hear what Susie Q said to me?”)…

Or your husband saying stuff (“Why aren’t my pants ironed yet”)…

Or your kids tripping at school (“Mrs.So&So, This is the principal at Central High School. We need you to come down here right away”).

Or it’s the news or social media (News Headline: “The Worst Thing That Has Ever Happened In The Existence Of The World Has Happened Just This Morning“).

Of course, I’m being a little tongue in cheek but there does seem to always be something or someone that is trying to mess with our emotional and mental state.

So if you’re able to have these 23 signs of an emotionally healthy woman in the midst of all the dramas of life and constant state of outrage that the media seems to claim we are in you’ve got it going on.

If only I had a dollar for every time a news headline said something or someone “sparked outrage” I’d have at least $5,000 dollars by now.

So let’s get into it but first, if you want to dive even deeper into this topic then you can get a free copy of my Emotional Health Inventory where you can take an emotional health quiz and then I give you a little analysis of your results. Continue reading

Does anyone else geek out over planners?

I’m not sure what it is.

With me being so scatterbrained, perhaps it’s the idea of having all of my thoughts, plans, goals and dreams neatly tucked away in between brightly colored pages & organized boxes.

Whatever the reason, I am instantly drawn to a row of planners when I go to Target or whenever I see them online (esp. Etsy).

Do you use a planner? Perhaps you don’t. If not, let me school you on some of the life-changing benefits of using them.

But hey before we go on, are you struggling with your morning routine? I know I used to but I’ve started doing some things in the morning that have totally revolutionized my entire day.Continue reading

5 Tools For Christian Women To Conquer Their Day and Be Amazingly Productive

Does it feel like every day whizzes by faster than the day before it? And like our to-do lists get longer and longer no matter how many items we check off of it?

As Christian women, we want to be a good steward of the time God has given us.

We know how precious it is and it can be frustrating when we aren’t able to use time as wisely as we know we should.

I’ve always felt like time was getting away from me.

Like I never had enough time. Like I was always running behind and always late.

But lately, I’ve been really getting into learning about productivity, time management, and goal setting.

It’s really helped me look at time in a different way and I’ve made some changes that have really made a difference in my life and I’ll be sure to share some of that in upcoming posts.

I really hope that my tips will help.

Since learning more about productivity, I’ve been on time (more often than not), I have more time to work on my blogs and pursue my goals, and I feel like my time with my family and friends in more enjoyable because I don’t always feel so behind.

If any of that sounds like a good deal to you and you are intrigued then be checking back in the next few weeks as I will be talking a lot more about these subjects.

In fact, I do have a little freebie in my resource library called Chaotic to Calm where I share a bit about my morning routine hack that has revolutionized my morning routine.Continue reading

Powerful Bible Verses To Overcome Anxiety As Christians 

An estimated 40 million Americans are suffering from anxiety.

And while there should be no Christians counted in that number I know for sure that there are (I am one of them).

Why shouldn’t any Christians that struggle with anxiety?

Because Jesus told us about a million different times not to be anxious ( give or take a few times).

Yet so often we still can’t overcome the constant worry and doubt that plagues so many of us.

So I thought it would be good to have a devotional and remind ourselves of 9 major things the Bible says about overcoming anxiety.

Let’s Define Some Words First…
