A bit about me
Hey all, I’m Jess!
Welcome to my blog. I really hope you enjoy your time here.
A bit about me. I was born and raised in Melbourne but have spent the last 3 years of my life on the extremely remote Christmas Island, WA
I move here to be with the love of my life who is now my fiance and father to our beautiful toddler, Luna.
Below you can see a map of where we live (That red marker in the middle of nowhere!)
Although we are close to Indonesia, we are still part of Australia.
When Luna was born I struggled a lot with the isolation that comes with being a new mum, especially while being on a rock in the middle of the ocean. This coupled with my pre-existing anxiety and depression was not a fun time. But I survived and that’s why I’m here now.
The aim of Mindful Galaxy
For a long time I considered a blog to share my passions, thoughts, struggles and successes, and then in April 2019 I finally took the leap and haven’t looked back!
The aim of my blog is to show everyone, not just women and mums, that they are not alone.
Your struggles are real and that is okay.
Through this blog, I will share with you everything that has helped me become a stronger and more organised person.
The Two Key Sections of Mindful Galaxy
Mindful Galaxy has two key sections, which all come together to help us create the life we deserve to live!
I love organisation and all of the systems that we can put into place to help us achieve our goals – no matter the size.
Through my battle against anxiety, I have found that eliminating the unknown helps a lot with finding a balance. So that is where organisation comes into the overall aim – helping you achieve a clean, organised environment to find your balance!
My main passion is Bullet Journals, however, we don’t just stop there.
Here at Mindful Galaxy, we look at all of the ways we can clean, organise and excel in not only our lives but the lives of our families as well.
Organisation topics you can find on MindfulGalaxy.Com
- Bullet Journal Essentials
Our bullet journal series that will guide you through what they are, starting one and how you can use them!
- Printable Pages to get you organised – both free and premium
Health & Wellness
We all want to achieve wellness, but most of us struggle. Whether it be mental health or physical health, we tend to put it on the backburner and deem our lives “too busy” to take care of ourselves.
Wellness topics you can find on MindfulGalaxy.Com
- Anxiety / Mental health
- Essential Oils
- Physical Health – Coming Soon!
Ever since I started using oils, I have discovered that they really do have a lot of important benefits that are overshadowed by modern living.
My main use of essential oils is using it in my cleaning and mood management. These are two vital parts of what makes Mindful Galaxy the blog it is today.
Essential oil topics you can find on MindfulGalaxy.Com
- What they are
- How they can benefit you, your lifestyle and your moods
- Safety information
- Recipes and blends
- Where to purchase
- How to join an essential oil membership program
Mindful Galaxy looks at ways that Wellness and Organisation can come together and create an effective, everlasting healthy lifestyle for you and your family.
We also have a few sub-categories that are linked to our main areas, but are not fully part of them.
Due to the uniqueness of my living situation, I like to give people a glimpse on what it is like living in an isolated paradise.
It isn’t all beautiful beaches and warm weather!
As a mother of a gorgeous toddler, I know how hard it can be. Especially when you have your own personal struggles.
It’s okay to have bad days, and I want to help you through them!
I.love.giving.gifts! It is honestly a huge passion of mine. I am always looking for the perfect gift to suit an individual, as well as something that isn’t straight off the shelf!
So I have dedicated a sub-category to this topic!
Blogging isn’t as easy as a lot of people think. It comes with so many unique challenges, learning curves and skills. So while my blog is not about blogging, I have some posts here to show you what it is really like trying to build a career as a blogger.
Fabulous DIY tips, tricks and ideas. The key area of DIY is currently based around the use of Essential Oils, but I am looking at expanding that in the near future.
I can’t wait to get to know you better and help you build your best life!
