Self-care has been a huge focus for many amidst the existenstial crisis of apocalyptic proportions that the pandemic has brought about. With life seemingly at a pause, danger and uncertainty lurking (literally) outside our doorsteps, and panic ensuing with each shocking new headline, many have turned inwards, hoping to find new ways to cope with these trying times. Meditation is a popular option for mental decluttering while exercise is also a great habit to boost endorphins and maintain health and wellness. Another way people have been practicing mindfulness and self-care is through journaling.
As with many self-improvement practices, consistently keeping up a personal journal is easier said than done. If you've been having trouble maintaining the habit or figuring out the best way to jot down your thoughts, we found something that might help: Local brand SKIT Books offers a wide range of journals designed to help you immerse yourself in your favorite hobbies, get more out of your daily activities, and better understand the things you enjoy doing the most.
