My name is Jaclyn, and like all women, I am many things: a Christ-follower, a wife, a busy mother of four, an entrepreneur and a chronic disease sufferer. Before my diagnosis of autoimmune thyroid disease, I’d never spent much time thinking about holistic wellness. I was young, healthy, and unconcerned about the nutritional value of the foods I was eating or what my beauty products were made of. Years of enduring unpleasant, painful symptoms culminated in the discovery of my illness and forced me to overhaul my lifestyle choices, but as anyone with a chronic illness who is striving for health will tell you, this can be a lengthy and arduous process of trial-and-error.
As I became more concerned with living well, I discovered the benefits of keeping a food diary, a symptom log, a mood tracker and a gratitude journal. I found value in crafting attainable goals, meal planning, setting my intentions and journaling my anxieties - but after a few months of implementing these practices, I found myself reaching for five or six different notebooks and journals every day, and the disorder of it all just added to my stress.
Try as I might, I couldn’t find an all-in-one daily planner that was as comprehensive as I was craving. So as a graphic designer by trade, I built one for myself: and the 16-Week Undated Daily Wellness Planner was born.
A lot of so-called "wellness planners" are just standard daily planners with some space to track your water intake and exercise routine. Creekside Press products are different because your wellness is not an afterthought, it is our purpose. Of course, there are plenty of features in our planner that are designed to help you define your goals and increase your productivity - but we believe that if you take care of your wellness first, with intention and with humility, you will have infinitely more energy, drive and enthusiasm. In turn, even your loftiest goals will become more achievable.
Therefore, at Creekside Press, it is our mission to create luxe, intelligent stationery products that inspire you to take care of yourself and empower you to live a life full of joy, purpose, and good health.
Get well. Soon.
