Silk + Sonder February 2024


Life is a continuous cycle of ebb and flow. At this stage of my life, I have two elementary-aged boys, and honestly I sometimes can't tell if we are coming or going! Pair the stresses of parenting with some generalized anxiety, a stressful (and emotional) job, and sports schedules, and sometimes I feel like I am drowning. These reasons (and more) are exactly why I need Silk + Sonder in my life.

While Silk + Sonder is a journal, it is also a planner, stress reliever, focus improver, mood booster, and productivity increaser! Centering around a new theme each month, this book has it all, and aligns with my needs perfectly. With 60 pages of amazingness, I look forward to opening this journal each day, and have found it to help keep my anxiety under control.


February is here and with it are 29 days of awesomeness! This month's theme of "Confidence" is exactly what I need after these past few weeks of parenting. Working on reflecting on what makes me unique, knowing my worth, and owning my strengths is what's in store, and Silk + Sonder is here to assist! With this, I find myself embracing my qualities and reminding myself that confidence is a journey, not a destination. Now let's dive in!


One of my favorite parts of Silk + Sonder is receiving a new planner each month. Starting "fresh" has been really helpful, as yearly planners make me feel overwhelmed. While this does feature an entire year calendar, it is too small to start filling, but big enough to reference for the future. To start my month, I fill in my calendar with dates I already know, and watch the month fly by! (Thank you, basketball!) Staying organized is a huge help in managing my anxiety, and being able to quickly pull this calendar at the front of this planner is exactly what I need.


On page 6, we are greeted with a "Future Log." This includes two small calendars for the upcoming months. With just enough space to write small notes, my calendar generally stays pretty open, but March is a big, busy month for us, so I am finding filling up rather rapidly! On the opposite side, you find scratch paper, which is a great inclusion! It gives me space to write random lists, reminders, and other things I just can't lose or forget.


The next page offers a space to reflect on your last month, with a spot to set your intentions for the upcoming one. There's even one to reflect on your challenges. This page is one of my favorites, as it shows all of the month's accomplishments. Going through the wins, challenges, and favorite moments is a great way to be intentional regarding time and opportunities. Looking back helps me realize just how much one can accomplish in 4-ish weeks! Going forward, I would like to say "YES" more, stop being so negative, continue listening to my daily podcast, and my low-carb diet. What did you list in this section?


Setting intentions for February was a really helpful activity because of how overwhelmed I have been feeling lately. This isn't making a to-do list, but a list that asks something of yourself, and then gives you the strength to do it. With 6 boxes available to meditate on yourself in specific categories, it truly is helpful to write these down. Life is so much more than waking up and going to work, and being intentional really proves that.


Like I mentioned above, this is more than just a planner, and these trackers are proof of that. Page 10 and 11 offer a mood tracker and habit tracker. We are given space to fill in what our typical moods are, and fill it out throughout the month. This is great for tracking patterns especially for me and my anxiety. If you don't like to do a ton of writing, these pages are definitely geared toward you. When I first started this planner, I felt the need to complete every page perfectly, but in finding myself, have realized I can do whatever I feel on each given day. This is YOUR planner, and you can fill it out as completely, or not completely, as you feel necessary. This same response goes for the habit tracker. Wonderful when you are starting a new habit, I write mine down and sometimes forget to fill them in. Is that okay? Yes! Do what works for you. As you may know, last month I didn't fill out these trackers, but have also been feeling a little more negative than usual, so decided to ramp it up for February. So far I am starting out really strong - I'm hoping this pattern continues, and maybe just "checking off that box" will help set me up for a positive mindset!


Page 12 offers another tracker, this one being for sleep. Because I typically go to bed and wake up at the same times I don't generally fill this out, but it's here if you need it. The opposing page, however, is another one of my favorites in the entire book! Page 13 offers a Gratitude Log to list 29 items I am grateful for. While this is meant to list an item everyday, because I am really focusing on gratitude and positivity this month, I filled the entire list up in just a few days, and go back and read it each day as a reminder of all of the blessings we are offered.


Because this month's theme was "Confidence", we received three prompts regarding this topic and how it resonates with us. These prompts were very thoughtful and had us write down what exactly confidence means and what we are currently confident in. Page 15 offered a Duality Exercise, which is new. This prompt had us jot down what our strengths are, along with things we are working on. Writing this down was actually a little hard, but also empowering, as now that I've owned it, I can build on it.


The next activity was a gratitude letter. This letter is supposed to be written to someone that has inspired you to feel confident in who you are. I actually just did this in a continuing education class, choosing my mom, so felt it was a bit redundant, but may circle back as it is pretty powerful. On the opposing side, we were given a poem by Maya Angelou, which encompasses confidence throughout the entire thing. "Still I Rise" is not only beautiful, but impactful as well.


Page 18 and 19 offer two more fun activities: an adult coloring page, and a "Sketch" page where you fill in what people in your life make you more confident.


Each month we are gifted a recipe, and this month's recipe was for "Rose Petal Brownies". These were just a little far out for my husband and kids' taste, so we are skipping this one, but I am interested in any reviews if anyone else has tried them?

On the opposing page however, we received a "Create Your Own Bingo" board, focusing on self-care! I love filling these out and completing them, and am also at a double bingo - I just need to get time to do some sewing!!


Onto some more fun stuff, page 24 debuts a Labyrinth, with answers to last months word search,  along with the monthly riddle. Another nice feature is the Monthly Expense Tracker on page 25. I don't typically fill this out because I have my tracker on a google doc, but could see how this might be useful to others.


The most helpful part is the weekly planner. This area shows a calendar, weekly to-dos, habit and activity trackers, goals, and meal plans. Adding notes to each day, this is where I spend most of my time. I love that it condenses some of the other pages into a summary here, and it really helps me stay organized. I especially like being reminded how I want to feel, and what I am loving, because sometimes looking at everything going on gets me a little anxious!


Tidying up with one last quote, the dictionary definition of "Sonder", and the back cover, that's all there is to it. I have come to find that a key part of my day is when I sit and fill out my planner with my cup of coffee. This quiet time happens before the kids are awake, and I can snuggle Scout and Buxton all to myself! Now that we are in the 3rd quarter of our school routine and things have settled down a teeny tiny bit, I am able to carve out time to stay intentional with this journal. With that, my mindset has shifted, and I am leading a more positive life.

The Verdict

With an entire month of 2024 behind us, we are still as busy as ever, but I feel a lot more organized with the help of this journal.  Silk + Sonder is a lifesaver, and without it, I'd definitely be lost. This month's planner was especially beautiful, and the theme of "confidence" was perfectly chosen. I continue to be impressed with this subscription, and can't wait to see what's in store for March! 

I tend to allocate about 15-20 minutes a day to this journal and flip from front to back reflecting, adding to, and processing what I have previously written. By the end of the month, my brain feels much more organized and stable. The beauty of this planner is remarkable, and the packable size means I can tote it around in my purse. Being extremely impressed with all aspects, I am really looking forward to discovering more about myself, all while staying organized and offering myself a little daily quiet time and important self-care.
