With busy schedules, brain fog and chronic illness sometimes books aren’t the easiest to read or commit to. So I have found magazines to be a calming alternative. The way they are broken down into sections and articles make them much more manageable. I love how the variety of topics always keeps me engaged.
So I have been branching out and trying new magazines over the last few months. I wanted to share some of my favourites with you all!
…is a new magazine collated by Leon Ernest Connell. It features articles, artworks and creative pieces from a wide range of contributors. It talks about pain, perseverance and mental health. They are soon launching an online publication too – so keep an eye out! And the exciting news is… I was lucky enough to feature in their Spring 18 issue that came out this month! So go check them out 😛
I truly love this magazine – it provides insight into the way we live, along with our wellbeing and mindfulness. The articles are a decent size but are easy to read and are always accompanied by incredible photography. I love their ideas for getting creative too.
… a classic magazine. I love the variety of their articles from real life stories to rants, observations and crafts. I especially want to talk about an article from issue 82. They featured a fellow blogger and dysautonomia sufferer. Coming across this article was such a happy surprise because it is so rare and touching to read about someone who has a similar condition to myself. It was lovely to read and really brightened my day. I think raising awareness of chronic and invisible illnesses will help sufferers to feel less isolated by informing others. I am a huge believer in sharing our stories and struggles because I think it is a great way to learn, grow and help one another.
… is a newer magazine designed for adolescents and young adults. I love how they promote the importance of self-love. As well as the effort they make to teach and remind us to embrace our uniqueness and individuality. It is from Toowoomba and I really love how not only is the production close to home but also the stories they feature.
