National Stationery Week 2020

One of my favourite weeks in the year is National Stationery Week. It’s a great week to find likeminded people, passionate about stationery. This week tends to fall towards the end of April. Since National Stationery Week 2020 is actually their tenth year anniversary, the team are going big. They have already lined up a huge range of sponsors. I am really looking forward to seeing how it goes. However, I wanted to share this with you today for a few reasons. First, I wanted to share all of the brilliant sponsors they have. And second, the National Stationery Week team launched their #12DaysOfStationery today. This is twelve days of giveaways, for stationery lovers everywhere.

A Year in Field Notes

Every single quarter, Field Notes release limited edition pocket notebooks. Their annual subscription fills you with plenty of notebooks to get writing, wherever you are. I love their notebooks – and I’ve raved about a few of the different editions every so often here. But as it’s almost the end of 2019, I took a moment to look back at the last year’s release and it hit me how apt each and every one was. For perhaps the first time, the Field Notes limited editions all symbolise something related to the season they were released in for me. I am keen to see where they go from this.

Christmas Planner and Planning for Christmas

For any event or holiday, planning in advance can make things a bit easier and less stressful. Christmas is no exception to the rule. It’s a very widely celebrated holiday that does take up quite a bit of time, effort and money. Planning – and budgeting properly – can make a huge difference to your mental wellbeing throughout the month and afterwards. Everyone’s Christmas Planner will look different, based on what you do and how you celebrate the holiday but I wanted to share mine in the hopes that it might give you some ideas. I have also included a free downloadable template that I used in my planner, in case you wanted to do the same.

Three Good Things

Writing down three things that make you happy, that you’ve accomplished, that you’re proud of or just made you smile a little can make a difference on your mental wellbeing. Since mid August, I have been practicing this technique every night. It’s gotten to the point where it feels strange if I don’t do it. I have a dedicated notebook for it and I wanted to share why writing three good things every day is something we should all do.

I intend to carry this on, all year around as I think it will be helpful. However, since the festive period can get very hectic or stressful, I wanted to share this now. The holidays, whilst meant to be full of joy and happiness, can easily become a bit overwhelming. It can become costly, or just busier than usual. So this idea is very simple, minimal cost method of allowing yourself to rest, relax and recuperate. To find the joy in the smallest moments and remember what is important to you or makes you feel good. Because despite how busy life gets, it can also be wonderful.
