Self-Love is Organizing Your "Gorgeous Chaos"
From running to my West Village spa to managing staff meetings, handling a press interview, and caring for my newborn, the day was a flurry of constant buzzing and pinging from my phone.
Over a glass of wine that evening, my friend looked at me and said, “Your life is gorgeous chaos. A lot of business chaos, but what emerges is that you focus on the gorgeousness of your life. I have no idea how you do it. I would drown in this.”
This chronic busy-ness of business is unsustainable, yet it taught me a vital lesson: to focus on the "gorgeous" in the chaos by organizing and compartmentalizing for peace of mind.
The beauty of inner peace is that it radiates calm, contentment, and a glowing, nourished aura. Stress and turmoil not only leave visible marks on our body and face but also impact the quality of our relationships, both with ourselves and others.
Finding inner peace is soulcare at its finest. This can be achieved through various methods such as meditation, self-reflection, therapy, journaling, yoga, and practicing gratitude.
I created the Savor Beauty Planner as a practical method of soulcare to bring inner peace to my creative chaos from juggling life and work responsibilities.
The planner includes "Organize Your Gorgeous Chaos" pages, a powerful visual tool to compartmentalize your tasks into boxed containers, similar to a well-structured closet. This organization creates a serene space in both your mind and your schedule.
If you look at your life like one big closet, you can imagine opening an unstructured wardrobe filled with crumpled bed linens, scattered hair accessories, and expired makeup. It's understandable that the chaos would drain your energy!
Similarly, our life energy can feel chaotic if we don’t structure our days. We transform chaos into gorgeous productivity by organizing these "closet items"—AKA tasks and projects—into containers.
This reduces anxiety and provides a soothing structure, supporting our momentum. If you're ever feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or disorganized, it's the perfect way to remedy these feelings and send some much-needed self-love your way.
Tailor these pages to fit your lifestyle, ensuring each day is an opportunity to savor beauty and success.
Circle the day at the top of each box. Think of the Week Plan as your priority page and the Gorgeous Chaos pages as the extras.
If you have multiple clients, you can write their names at the top and do a brain dump related to each project.
Batch your thoughts together into one box for each project. For example, we've been doing a lot of training at our spa lately, and the Gorgeous Chaos page was an excellent place to dump thoughts, sticky notes, and scribbles!
Need to track a lifestyle change such as your water intake or exercise schedule? This is a fantastic page to see your progress at a glance!
Here's to your skincare + soulcare for self-love radiance. 🥂
