How to: Start Journaling Every time we start a journal we have great expectations of how it will go, but it becomes too tedious and the activity stops because it's too much work. However, with a few simple tips your journal can become a healthy outlet for your thoughts with no pressure!
GET STARTED IN AN EASY WAY Think small and aim for a minimum of jotting a few things down per day
SET TIME LIMITS FOR YOURSELF
WRITE AT A CERTAIN TIME
Write at a particular time every day in order to build the habit
CREATE A SOUNDTRACK Reinforce journaling with positive music that you like to help keep the habit
10 minutes each day is enough, it's consistency that counts
DOESN'T HAVE TO BE JUST WORDS
DON'T WORRY ABOUT PERFECTION
Don't stress over grammar rules or spelling, just write how you truly feel
If you don't feel like writing one day you can always draw a picture or doodle

With Mother’s Day coming soon, I’ve spent some time thinking about my grandma and my mom, and reflecting on the impact they’ve had on me. I’m from Chile - a traditionally patriarchal place, with men being the head of the family. This wasn’t the case for me though, my own family is filled with strong women who have helped shape me into the person I am today. My grandma raised 9 children on her own, moving from city to city trying to find a better life for all of them. She also helped raise her grandchildren: me, my brother, my cousins, we all had a place to call our second home with her. I’m never going to forget her "magic pot” of food because, anyone who went inside her house would always have a meal. She taught me all about kindness and resilience and providing. My mom, for lack of a better word, is my hero. I could write a thousand essays about her and how much I love her. She is the reason I’m here, going to OCAD, pursuing a dream that couldn’t be possible back in Chile. She has never once given up on me and her strength keeps me going every single day. We are all surrounded by amazingly strong women in our lives and sometimes their impact might go unnoticed, but it shouldn’t go unappreciated. Mothers and motherly figures come in all kinds of different ways - whether it's your grandma, a family friend, or a counsellor. So make sure you show them some love this Mother's Day! -Carol Rodríguez, OCAD, Floor 11
