When I started the Inspajournal, I wanted to create Inspirational Journals but it became an inspirational journey.⁣ ⁣ God had other plans and although He did not give me postpartum depression, he allowed it to happen to me. ⁣ ⁣ Depression tried to keep me. But, God, said to it, ONLY this far ! He kept me. So often, we ask God why? Instead of, what now? ⁣ ⁣ He had given me the answer years before my struggle with depression...”Heal a multitude of people”. ⁣ ⁣ I just didn’t think, I would help heal others through my own pain. ⁣ ⁣ This has been the most amazing year of my life. Full of so many challenges and nonstop disruptions. And a bunch of less than ideal situations. ⁣ ⁣ But, it’s given me gumption and a boldness! It’s given me true joy that doesn’t come from circumstances. It’s given me purpose! It’s given me Faith! ⁣ ⁣ I’m unstoppable now! ⁣ ⁣ What has this year given you ? ⁣ ⁣ #wvpraisereport⁣ ⁣ #Selflovequotes #Selfworth #Selfcaretips #Strongertogether # Selfcareroutine #selflove #dailylove # Findyourself # selflovery #selfloveclub #selflovejourney #selfcompassion #selfcarecoach #selfimage #radicalselflove # mentalhealthawareness #grateful #dailycalm #youareenough #selflover #mentalhealth #scientificallyprovenmentalhealthtips #Care #Confidencequotes #dothework #selfhealing #womensupportingwomen #spirituality #writers #blackmentalhealth

The Overwhelmed Planner will be available as a digital download & soon the physical planner will be available on Amazon ! ⁣ ⁣ Ya’ll! ! ! ⁣ ⁣ This is Gigantic for me and my family. ⁣ ⁣ I went from being so depressed, overwhelmed and anxiety driven that I barely remembered to do the basics for myself like, drink water, eat and laugh. ⁣ ⁣ I am still working through some things and I was able to move forward because⁣ ▫️ I humbled myself and asked God to help me everyday⁣ ▫️I went to therapy⁣ ▫️I had several break downs, but still have faith that healing is coming⁣ ▫️I dedicated myself to doing the work ⁣ ⁣ That led me to create resources like The Overwhelmed Guide and the new No Longer Overwhelmed Planner to supplement my therapy sessions. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Being a full time Wife, Mom, Employee and Entrepreneur, I really needed a book to help me organize the million and one tasks I have. So, using the Productivity Brain Dump Book by @mindfulproductivityblog it was a Heaven send and truly helped me organize my thoughts. ⁣ ⁣ Amazing !

⁣ A study shows that after just ONE session people said they felt, serene, relaxed, happy and overall well-being. ⁣ ⁣ My experience was similar, after just one session my responses to chaos was improved. My creativity spiked and I got some of the best sleep that night. ⁣ ⁣ It’s perfect for this season where there’s a lot going and and sometimes lots of pressure. If you have been wanting to try it, gift yourself a session for Christmas or gift it to a loved one. Or a Mom ( always my first choice 😊) !

⁣ I had the opportunity to visit @urbanfloatwestu In Houston. ⁣ ⁣ I first heard about float therapy when researching different remedies for depression. ⁣ ⁣ Flotation R.E.S.T ( Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy) reduces sensory input through the act of floating in a pool of epsom salt water. ⁣ ⁣ It is proven that people who experience anxiety and stress related symptoms saw reduced symptoms AND experienced improved moods. ⁣ ⁣ These are the proven benefits of float therapy.⁣ ▫️Reduces pain⁣ ▫️Reduces depression⁣ ▫️Improves sleep⁣ ▫️Reduces anxiety ⁣ ▫️improves moods⁣ ▫️Reduces stress⁣ ⁣ A study shows that after just ONE session people said they felt, serene, relaxed, happy and overall well-being. ⁣ ⁣ My experience was similar, after just one session my responses to chaos was improved.

When you are feeling stuck. ⁣ ⁣ Try a simplistic approach, write your plan down & drink water. ⁣ ⁣ Then set your 20 min playlist or timer on and tackle one task at a time. ⁣ ⁣ Your body will thank you and so will your mind.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Do you sit most of day ? ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #mindbodysoul #Femine#choosehappy #selfcareisforeveryone #joy #gratitude #boundaries #mentalhealthblogger #Houstonblogger #Growth #Dothework #Energy #Blackgirlmagic #motivation #wordsofwisdom #feminine #wellness #Dontquitdaydreaming #Dreams ⁣ ⁣ ⁣

I want them to see me be service based and generous. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ▫️I want my husband to be proud of me and his biggest supporter. I want him to see me as the person he can talk to and trust.

Practice the Pause⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ▫️Pause doesn’t mean stop. It means take a break and maybe come back. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I know, for sure I need this at times. I wish, I was further along in my journey to be able to react and adapt the right way all the time but.... feelings and habits.⁣ ⁣ I noticed, it seems almost impossible to change your habits and yourself. One step forward two steps back. But, that’s normal.⁣ ⁣⁣ When is the last time you needed to practice the pause? ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #mindbodysoul #Femine⁣⁣ #choosehappy #selfcareisforeveryone #joy #gratitude #boundaries #mentalhealthblogger #Houstonblogger #Growth #Dothework #Energy #Blackgirlmagic #motivation #wordsofwisdom #feminine #wellness #Dontquitdaydreaming #Dreams ⁣⁣

Here’s a nice essential oil blend I can’t wait to try tonight, after yoga class! Diffuse with caution, will cause drowsiness. 💤
