Silk + Sonder is a monthly planner subscription that makes planning, reflecting, and achieving easy and fun by delivering a new pen-to-paper experience every month. Each planner features new layouts that are "inspired by positive psychology, bullet journaling, and self-help books." For an annual plan, the cost is $15.75/month. There are also quarterly and monthly plans available.

This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Silk + Sonder June 2024

I am one day away from twelve weeks of summer vacation, and I could not be more ready! While our schedule is already pretty full, I am all for the baseball games, camping weekends, and sleeping in (hopefully until at least 6!) While it sounds like all fun and games, I have a to-do list a mile long, and staying organized is the only way I feel I can try and keep up. 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.

Thrive: Grow or develop well or vigorously. prosper; flourish.

June is here, and with it are all of the summer vibes, lush green landscapes, and warm starry nights. Though busy, I do feel this month's theme of "Thrive" fits beautifully with the newness of summer, and I love that I can focus on this theme and feeling throughout the entire month, causing me to be more purposeful in my everyday life. Now, let's dive in!

One of my favorite aspects 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, baseball!) Staying organized is a huge help in managing my anxiety, and being able to quickly reference this calendar at the front of this planner is exactly what I need.

On page 6, we open up to a "Future Log." This includes two small calendars for the upcoming months. With just enough space to write small notes, I tend to use this for the big things we have planned, but keep it pretty open. On the opposite side, you find a page of graph paper in which you can do what you choose! I typically write notes, lists or random information down in these spots, and appreciate the inclusion.

Page 8 offers a space to reflect on the previous month. With an area to write down your wins, challenges, and favorite moments, this is a great way to learn what works and what doesn't. This page is one of my favorites, as it shows all of the month's accomplishments. It also features an area to write things down that you want to start, stop, and continue. May was a bit stressful, but really had some fun moments. Featuring the last day of school, it probably is the most exciting month of the year, and we did get to spend a lot of time together as a family, which is always great.

I love the inclusion of the monthly intentions page. Here, you set intentions for yourself, and re-read them throughout the month. With six categories and six boxes to complete, there is plenty of room to jot things down. This isn't necessarily a to-do list, but a place to get yourself off to a good start and remind yourself of things that you would like to work on. This month I had a few easy things to accomplish, but also added some harder ones. It's all about balance, people!

As I have 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. I love the fact that these are customizable to track exactly how you want in such a pretty way! Silk + Sonder typically ships a week and a half before the next months starts, so I haven't started tracking June yet, but fill up these entire sections by the end of the month. I find this to be a great way to hold yourself accountable, and while I keep some of my goals the same, tend to switch things up once in a while for excitement!

Page 12 offers another tracker, this one being for sleep. I have no trouble in this department, so I usually skip it. The opposing page, however, is another one of my favorites. Page 13 offers a Gratitude Jar that has a ton of space to fill. It's amazing how many things we have to be grateful for each and everyday! Looking back on this throughout the month is a reminder for those extra hard times, when it's difficult to keep a positive mindset.

Because this month's theme was "Thrive", we received three thoughtful prompts regarding this topic and how it resonates with us. The prompts this month were pretty low-key, and I appreciated that. Because I typically fill this out in the morning, sometimes my brain isn't fully awake, and I need something easy - this month was just that, but in a very effective and meaningful way! Page 15 offered a "Free Write" activity in which we write openly and freely about what thriving in every area of our life would look like. Thought provoking, huh?

The next activity was interesting, and fun. This "Routines" activity featured space to write down our current routine for morning, evening, and weekend. This brought me to the basics, and reminded me what really is important in a time when things get a little overwhelming, which was extremely helpful. The opposing side features a beautiful poem all about thriving. So incredibly true, this poem was one of the most inspiring I have ever read, gearing me up for a productive and wonderful month!

Page 18 and 19 offer two more fun activities: an adult coloring page, and a "Vision Board" page where you draw, sketch, and stick pictures of things that remind you of your goal and how you will achieve it. I love the adult coloring page, but haven't quite gotten to it yet. As far as the vision board goes, I haven't added much, but like the idea of adding a small doodle everyday to create a really neat board by the end of the month.

Every Silk + Sonder journal comes with a recipe, and though I typically don't try them, do appreciate the thought. This month's "Chicken Katsu" looked pretty tasty, but I need to hit up the grocery store first before trying. Has anyone given this recipe a go yet? How did they turn out?

On the opposing page, we received a "Create Your Own Bingo" board, and I had a lot of fun filling out all of my "self-care" activities I need to complete to get a Bingo! My son has a reading board similar to this he needs to complete this summer, so we are planning on doing these together (though mine sounds more fun!) 🤣

Blank sheets are always helpful and a great place to do some long division, write notes, and jot down addresses!

Each month we are given some sort of mind puzzle, and this month it was a word search. I enjoy these puzzles, and found it pretty easy to complete. I didn't figure out this month's riddle though. Did you?

The opposing side features an expense tracker. I've mentioned before that I use a google doc, so I don't fill out this page, and that's okay! Feel free to use this planner as you see fit!

While all of the activities are really useful, helpful, and great, I tend to put most of my time into these calendar pages. With sections for meal plans, to-dos, habits and activities, shopping lists, and specific day sections, I write everything here. It keeps me on schedule for each day and feeling accomplished, and there is NOTHING more satisfying than crossing out an item on my list.

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, though these last two weeks have been without that! This quiet time happens before the kids are awake, and I can snuggle Scout and Buxton all to myself! School is almost out, so I will have more time now, but feel keeping a consistent schedule is very important in managing my anxiety, creating much more positive life.

The Verdict

As we head into June, our schedule is busy, yet more relaxed, and I feel a wave of relief. Because I need to stay organized, Silk + Sonder has become a necessity, and without it, I'd definitely be lost. This month's planner was designed beautifully, and I loved the "Thrive" theme. I continue to be impressed with this subscription, and can't wait to see what's in store for July.

I typically 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.
