*FYI: I was given a complimentary copy of the 52 Lists Calm for the purpose of this post. As always all thoughts and opinions are my own.

52 lists for calm

This week has been crrraazy for me so I’m really happy to be sharing with you Moorea Sea’s latest journal release, 52 Lists for Calm. This Moorea’s second release this year as her 52 Lists Planner dropped during the summer.

If you’re not familiar with Moorea she’s a Seattle boutique owner and the author of the bestselling 52 Lists series. You may have seen her journals floating around here a time or two or three. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since her first journal, The 52 Lists Project. It was the first creative journal I’ve ever purchased, and I’ve been buying them ever since.

52 Lists for Calm was created cause Moorea could see my life and knew I needed help calming the fuck down. Okay, maybe she can’t see me personally but she did see there are women like myself who are stressed and gave us a way to get peace of mind and serenity through the art of mindful list-making. Split into four sections (Be Present, Look Back, Move Forward, and Release) this journal features prompts, exercises, and strategies for soothing anxiety and placing you in a relaxed state.

But don’t mistake it, this journal is NOT about diagnosing anxiety it’s about providing you a space to find your own meaning of calm. It’s to help you develop a positive internal voice, teach you how to live in the present, and release your thoughts each week you start a new list or activity.

4 Things I Love About 52 Lists for Calm?

First, transparency. Moorea doesn’t beat around the bush on how this journal came to be. She talks about her struggles with anxiety and shares a little about her past and what lead up to her being diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. She also talks about how there is no one reason why someone develops an anxiety disorder.

Moorea wants you to take the time ground yourself in the present so that you can get to know the world around you on a deeper level. This is what I, and you need. I don’t know about y’all but I’m always running and I can honestly say I am hardly connected to the things around me. This journal will force us to slow down to enjoy the people and things around us.

Second, it’s undated. Y’all know how much I love an undated planner. This means that you don’t have to work in order. If you want to start List 1 then jump to List 20 it’s fine the choice is truly yours. There are no rules here, with the exception of enjoying yourself.

Third, I love the design. The journal is very peaceful with its combination of images and simplistic illustrations. It’s made to put you in a relaxed mood. It makes you wanna settle in wherever you are so that you can thoroughly and truthfully answer the questions and complete the exercises.

Lastly, like all Moorea’s journals, you can decorate it in whatever way you want. Want to make a list? Cool. Make a collage of images and drawings? That’s fine too. This journal is yours and yours only for you to express yourself how you see fit. Here are some examples of different ways you can work in ANY of the 52 Lists journals.
