As someone who suffers from clinical depression, it can be extremely hard to stay motivated in anything I do for a long period of time. The thoughts and emotions running through my mind can be debilitating, chaining me down to my bed, and keeping me shut out from the world. When a full time graduate class schedule and a job is added to the load, it can be near impossible to feel motivated. Some people have that and more. Whether you're a student, a parent, a business owner, suffer from depression, or don't know what you're doing with your life, I've compiled a few tips that can help you stay motivated through it all.

Hello fellow students!
If you're a student heading into the Fall 2019 semester, the nerves surely have started to accumulate. By now, you've read through your syllabi, if it was available to you. You've purchased your textbooks and supplies. You've read your required readings. You've made sure your new supplies are in place and ready for the first day of class. You've attended orientation and met your future classmates. You are equal parts excited and anxious. For me, I have experienced all those things.
With the onslaught of due dates, projects, exams, and papers from your syllabi, it'll surely drive you crazy. To mitigate the stress that comes with all that pressure, I try to stay very organized. How will you be staying organized this semester? Here are some of my favorite ways!
The month of July marks a halfway point in the year. Here we are, already halfway through 2019. How crazy is that? If feels as though the year has begun just yesterday!
As you know, one of the ways I stay organized in my busy life is my bullet journal. It is my primary organizational system. I also keep a calendar book and a white board calendar, but these days I use them scarcely.
While June has ended, so has my previous bullet journal. Each journal I create is divided for every six months; this allows me to use as many pages for spreads as I need. I get to start fresh and try out new layouts and themes!
Happy Friday buds! I greet you with a fat dab in hand! I have returned after a protracted three month hiatus. It was long for you, even longer for me. A great deal changed in my life the last three months and now I have reached an equilibrium. It's good to finally share with you! My life update leads into today's topic; self care!
