Logging can be as simple as tapping in the Notes app. But I recommend pen and paper. A simple paper planner can serve as a journal as well as help you keep track of your tasks. Here are our favorites. I also like it Michelle’s notebooksbecause the paper is so wonderfully soft.
The Thoughtful Blue Sky Magazine ($ 35) good for figuring out what to write. It offers clues, including intentions and aspirations; weekly highs and lows; places to describe the perfect day or favorite paraphernalia about yourself; as well as simple pages for free writing.
Gabriela Hirstick Embody Your Magic: A Magazine for the Modern Witch ($ 15) it’s a great option for witches among us to guide you through your spiritual practice and learn a little better about yourself.
Read, read, read
I flipped through a few books a month until my phone and then college and work started to take longer. But there is nothing like discovering a new one the book and settle into another world. Plus, filling bookshelves is an easy way to decorate and make warmer a little warmer.
I prefer real books, but I recently appreciated it Kindle. Many e-books are cheaper than paper copies, and if you have a library card (and if not, what are you waiting for?), You can check e-books for free.
It is important during this time to focus on your mental health, but taking care of your physical health can also boost your mood.
Some people work to relieve stress and feel relaxed. I’m not one of those people, but I take them at their word. WIRED Reviews Editor Adrienne So compile a guide on how to practice at home that will help even the most lazy and non-standard (me) move.

Clear your mind
Meditation is an extremely useful tool for calm. We are constantly connected to what is happening in the world, and especially now it makes it difficult for us. Allocating time for meditation with a silent phone, you will give at least a few minutes of rest.
All you need for meditation is you and a quiet place. But it is difficult to exclude your thoughts and focus on the task at hand. We have some tips on how to get the most out of a simple meditation app. Some that we like are these Headspace app (iOS and Android) which has a simple course for beginners, a decent free library of guided meditations and a soothing British voice by Andy Pudikomba. Disconnect the network (IOS and Android) has a seven-day free trial. Both have super short courses that are perfect if you desperately need a mental break.
