The power of personal writing
Do you track your garden from season to season? If you don't, you should. A tracking system is a valuable tool that can help increase your garden's yields - and its beauty.
Whether your garden is producing right now or you're dreaming of the day the snow melts, it's a good time to start a gardening journal. Gardeners are planners at heart. If we're not drooling over seed catalogs while the snow flies, we might be mulling over when to divide perennials or getting ready to dig that pond we've always wanted.
A dedicated notebook can help you create the garden of your dreams. So why not choose a cute notebook with a gardening theme - like this Tree Diary from SohoSpark - and start creating the garden you've always dreamed about?
What do you do with your ideas? I often get my best ones when I'm walking my dogs. With my phone stowed away and the sun on my face, my brain whirls. The problem is, by the time I get home and unhook the harnesses, those ideas are often gone forever. The solution: an idea journal.
Now, if you’re thinking that idea journals are for fully-formed, brilliant, world-changing ideas, stop right there. Idea journals are for all kinds of ideas, from home decor inspo to trip itineraries to holiday gift ideas. As a bonus, idea journals are great incubators. Big ideas often grow from smaller ones.
Do you have a vision board? If you do, is the kind that you hang on the wall or is it inside a writing journal? There are a lot of terrific reasons to use a blank notebook for your vision boards:
Starting this year, I’ll be doing something else to recharge and destress: journaling. Both Bullet Journals and writing journals can help you manage the chaos of the holiday season - so that you can focus on the joy.
