Hi there! I’m Allie and I started Bliss’d to help fellow moms live more connected, joyful and fulfilling lives through journaling and self-care. Because as a mom to two toddlers, I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed and stretched too thin, and crave a deeper connection with myself, my husband and my kids.
My love for self-care and personal growth started in high school (I would use my money from my part-time job to buy self help books!). And it never stopped. For the last 20 years I’ve tried it all - from facials and massages to meditation and energy work to book and courses - and what I’ve come to realize is that self-care is a lot more than looking and feeling good on the outside, it's everything you do to feel your best from the inside.
One tool I use to help me feel my best on the inside is journaling. I discovered my love for journaling after the birth of my first child when I experienced PPD. My therapist suggested journaling (and meds) to help work through it. Both helped immensely - and journaling stuck (long after the meds finished)!
There are so many benefits to journaling for self-care. Benefits like: reduced stress and anxiety (over the longterm and immediately), an improved mindset, a greater appreciation for all you have, a deeper connection and knowing of self, and an overall boost in well-being. I've experienced these benefits (and more!) firsthand.
Since I couldn’t find an easy-to-use, 5-minute inspirational anytime journal - I created my own - the Anytime Reflection Journal. Plus, I wanted a place to share the (easy!, approachable!) self-care tips that have helped me feel my best (or, better!), in hopes that they help you, too!
Welcome to Bliss’d - I’m so glad you’re here!
