For Journaling and task managment
Declutter, Get Organized, and Focus
Spiral Notebook/Journal. I’ve spent a lot of years creating my own custom life design system to stay organized, collect my thoughts, and get tasks done. One of the tools in my system is this notebook you can get on Amazon. What I love: the size (5.7 x 8.3 inches), the spiral bound with a clear cover so I can decorate my cover my way, and the thick dotted paper that doesn’t bleed I use it to record thoughts, inspiration, tasks, and more. See it on Amazon here.
Metallic Markers. I am sort of obsessed with these cool Sharpie metallic markers. They give some elegance and flair to my journaling, and with the journal above, there is no bleeding through on the pages. They have a fine point tip that produces thinner detailed lines. See them on Amazon here.
Notion for file management. I’ve been a long time Evernote user and am even a Certified Evernote Consultant. I recently switched to Notion as it has some powerful features that allow me to keep my life and business organized and find what I need quickly and easily. This is the third piece of my life design system I’ve created with Trello and my paper journal. You can store your files, create templates, and even track your tasks inside Notion.

For Powerful Rituals and Practices
To Help You Feel Peace, Connection, and Love
You Can Heal Your Life book by Louise Hay. This is the first book I read that changed my life dramatically and taught me how to step into loving myself. I even remember where I was sitting when I first read this book, and that was over 20 years ago! I’ve read it several times and will keep this book forever. Louise was an amazing author and business owner who has helped so many people. Check it out on Amazon here. (There’s also a companion workbook.)
Ho’oponopono: The Hawaiian Forgiveness Ritual as the Key to Your Life’s Fulfillment. This is another book that dramatically improved my life and taught me how to truly forgive and let go. It’s a tiny book that is so powerful I keep it out where I can see it on a daily basis to remind me to do the practice of ho’oponopono. It’s a quick read and the practice of doing ho’oponopono is super easy. See it on Amazon here.
My Magical Mermaid Mirror. I learned about mirror work from Louise Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life (listed above). It’s a tool to use to connect to yourself and really “see” you. I wanted to find the perfect mirror to use and found this gorgeous mermaid mirror. I love it so much that I bought a 2nd one! It’s a great way to connect to yourself each day and take time to appreciate and love the uniqueness of YOU. Check it out here.
Love Money, Money Loves You book. This book is another life-changing book I discovered through a friend. It has these short, compelling chapters you can read and re-read to help bring more abundance into your life. It explains why so many people struggle with a lack of money and gives clear, simple guidelines on how to transform your relationship with money so you can be aligned with the way it works naturally.

Lunar Abundance by Ezzie Spencer. One of my recent discoveries of tools to help me create the kind of life I want is the Lunar Abundance book by Ezzie Spencer. This book teaches you about how to harness the power of the moon cycles to help you accomplish your goals and lead a more balanced, peaceful life. I loved the book so much that I purchased one of Ezzie’s courses on using the moon cycles throughout the month. Learn more on Amazon here.
