Why I’m Learning a Second Language and How I Began This Journey

As an adult, I can make an effort to learn a second language like I’d always wanted. The global lockdown provided plenty of time to devote to this daunting task, and the Enneagram 8 within me was up for a new challenge. After all, when else will I have time to undertake an enormous journey…

Bailey’s 2022 Reading List

Before I get too ahead of myself, here’s my list of 14 books that I read throughout 2022. Nine of these fourteen books are considered part of the self-help genre. Three of these books are autobiographies and the remaining two books are fiction – one that I chose to read on my own and one…

My 2021 Reading List

For the year 2021, I set a goal to read 15 new books once again as 15 was my goal last year that I didn’t quite hit… I came so close again this year by finishing the year with a total of 14 new books read! While I tend to be an over-achiever, not reaching…

Healthy Habit Helper – Guide and Tracker

Research shows that it takes 30 days of doing the same thing over and over again to form a habit. Some of our habits aren’t the healthiest and therefore are not very beneficial (like picking up a Starbucks Frappuccino before work each morning or smoking cigarettes daily), while other habits are incredibly healthy and beneficial…

60 Days Stronger Challenge

Back in August of 2020, I was talking with a friend and catching up on life. She mentioned that she was doing this online health and fitness challenge called 75 HARD. Being the challenge-lover that I am, I asked for more details and my jaw literally dropped as she spoke of it’s components. This challenge…

Why is Good Sleep so Important?

If you read a recent post of mine titled The Bedtime Routine That Regulates My Sleep, then you got all the deets on what I do in order to be able to fall asleep at a decent hour. And you’re also aware that I wake up feeling great BECAUSE I get enough sleep each night……

6 Amazing Books for Healing

If you’ve tuned into my podcast, Distressed to Joyful; Bailey’s Way, you’re probably fully aware that I am no stranger to trauma as well as the work it takes to be able to heal from it. Alongside working with my therapist, I’ve read many books to help me better understand the things that I’ve been…

The Bedtime Routine That Regulates My Sleep

The problems with my nonexistent sleep routine really started to interfere with my life when I accepted a full time position that allowed me to drop my second job. I was free from working late into the evenings, although now I was often required to be at my desk by 7:30am. At first, that was…

My 2020 Reading List

For the year 2020, I set a goal to read 15 new books. I came so close by finishing the year with a total of 14 new books read! While I tend to be an over-achiever, not reaching this goal ended up being a very important life lesson for me…. Sure, I could’ve spent my…

Give Thanks, Every Day

With Thanksgiving being this week, I’ve had the word “gratitude” on my mind quite a bit more than usual… Not going to lie, I used to be the type of person who only gave thanks on Thanksgiving Day because, well, that’s what everyone else did. What I didn’t realize was that giving thanks everyone single…

31 Journal Prompts for Self Discovery

I’m not going to lie, I used to HATE journaling. My therapist has been recommending it for years now as a healthy coping mechanism in order to help manage my bipolar disorder. Being an Enneagram 8, I decided that I didn’t need to take her advice and that journaling just wasn’t going to help me.…

I Track My Moods – Here’s Why

That photo up top may look a little familiar, eh? That’s because it’s one of the few that I’ve posted on Instagram and Facebook to give you a visual of what my mood journal actually looks like. I even hand out freebies so you can make one for yourself. But I’ve come to realize that…

My 2019 Reading List

I’m going to start out by saying that I am completely aware that 2020 is now halfway over and I bet you’re wondering why I’m just now getting my 2019 Reading List out, am I right? First of all, I started this blog in June 2020 sooo I kind of feel like that’s almost “’nuff…
