We experience stress every day. And although some stress is helpful to stimulate our body, left unchecked it can have a damaging effect on our mental health.

Journaling is a highly recommended stress management tool. The benefits of journaling on mental health are well researched and documented.

Using CBT techniques, mindfulness exercises and developed on an “Action-Focused Journaling” technique, this journal with self-analysing and prompts will help you to write yourself out of stress by better understanding your anxiety and its triggers, while shifting your thoughts from anxious and ruminative to empowered and action-oriented, and it will take only a few minutes of your day.

review by Littletinakblee – Anxiety Journal by Olga Gibbs

Last year I was given this anxiety journal to review for free for an honest opinion.

I won’t lie. When I was approached by this author with this great opportunity I was both delighted and eager to read and record through this new journal. I’ve held off on reviewing it right away as I wanted to really try it out and get a real feel for it before posting my review. Not only that but Olga has to be one of my favorite authors that I got lucky enough to discover back in 2019 when I came across Heavenward and was lucky enough to become a member of the blog tour for Hallow the second installment in Ogla’s Celestial Creatures Series.

Heavenward just so happens to be my very first book review, EVER, on my blog! You can check it out HERE.

If you follow me then you already know that anxiety is a huge obstruction in my life and has been for far too many year and so I’ve started working on helping myself push through the anxiety and I’m ALWAYS looking for other management options for my anxiety.

Writing is a HUGE part of my life. Its how I was taught to best express myself and its how I do best express myself. So an anxiety journal that helps you Record, Analyse, Manage your anxiety? That just sounded like it would fit perfectly into my lifestyle. I have (I still do) use The Anxiety Journal by Corinne Sweet – which you can read my review on this HERE.

Olga Gibbs, anxiety journal gives you an easy clear cut guidance in helping you record, analyse and manage your anxiety.

Has it helped me?

In a few ways, yes. It has helped me.

My anxiety Journal has arrived!

When it first arrived, I was filled with a lot of optimism for many reason. Again, because my best form of expression is writing but for some reason it never occured to me to write down and record my anxiety. 2nd, because I have already come across and use an anxiety journal, it was exciting to see how these two would differ. Would it help me in the same way? Help me in a different way? I couldn’t be sure, all I could be sure of was that I could give this journal my best attempt in the hopes of being able to help myself further.

I love how this journal doesn’t tell you how your anxiety feels or meant to feel, but rather it lets you explore how your anxiety affects you and ways on how you can manage how it affects you. This journal lets you explore and see from a different point of view what YOUR symptoms towards anxiety is as everyone reacts differently and deals with things differently – the same applies to those suffering from an anxiety disorder.

And with how easy it is to record your moments of anxiety, I’ve been able to look back on the first month I started writing it in my anxiety journal by Olga Gibbs and reflect on the triggers, the reactions and find a different solution or technique to change my reaction to my anxiety.

CBT is a HUGE factor when taking yourself on this journey with Olga’s anxiety journal, as a lot of what you write and a lot of the prompts that you read are there to help direct your thoughts into a different way of thinking.

This anxiety journal eases you into focusing on the good, on reminding yourself of the positive and to help drag your mind out of that icky inky darkness that swallows you when your anxiety starts to creep up or an attack comes on.

I’m aware this review isn’t very long, and perhaps it may even be a tad short on information but that’s because as I continue to use my anxiety journal I will also be updating this post along side that. My hopes for doing my review this way is that my viewers can better see how writing through this journal changes my way if thinking, my own view on anxiety and how I react to it. If anything, I hope by doing it this way I can give you a better in depth review on this anxiety journal.

With the recent pandemic and placing going back into yet another lockdown I believe this journal could benefit a LOT of people right now and I feel as though anyone who comes across this journal will be able to take something really amazing from it.

So Until Next time, I hope you all stay safe and I can’t wait to have you back for my next post!

Synopsis


“I am Uriel: The Harbinger of Chaos, The Keeper of the Gates, The Begetter of Life, The Dam of The Ends, and I’m coming to take what is mine!”

The clash with Baza and his angels had demonstrated to Ariel that Earth (Apkallu) is not the safe heaven she hoped it would be, and it is only a matter of time before she is hunted and dead.

The only way to survive is to accept her destiny and to fight back.

But upon her return to Uras, Ariel is rejected in her own domain and has to suppress the revolt against her reign. The angels refuse her and her lead, abandoning her and Uras in favour of another ruler.

She knows that without an army of followers she won’t stand a chance against Baza or Mik’hael, so now she needs to go into the most unexpected places to find it.

My Review


Harbinger is the third instalment in this addictive and heavenly quadrilogy (a four book series – that means we’re lucky enough to get another incredible read after reading Harbinger!). Heavenward is the first instalment of the Celestial Creatures Series, and the first book that had me instantly hooked onto the Celestial Creatures Series. Why not check out my review of Heavenward?, and don’t forget to check out my review of the second instalment Hallow.


I’ve been left wanting more ONCE again after reading one of Olga Gibbs amazing books…I was left speechless after putting down Heavenward, and left even more speechless after getting to the end of Hallow. And after reading Harbinger, I’m left the same. More speechless than the last.

I’m not sure how Olga has manage to do it yet again but she has left me speechless and hanging on the edge of my seat wanting to read Halo already! And it was a no brain-er to give Harbinger its more than deserved 5 stars.

From page one of Harbinger you are drawn into the chaos that is Ariel’s life, fighting for the life that was thrust upon her, a life she now has to learn to navigate through while saving those close to her. Harbinger is a short but just as action packed and full of surprises as Heavenward and Hallow.


Her return to Uras was less than welcoming for Ariel. With most of her army against her, Rafe seemingly loosing control of his sanity, caring for her younger sister Jess while trying to control her own inner turmoil, it doesn’t look as though Ariel’s life is about to become any less complicated or chaotic.

Harbinger By Olga Gibbs – Book Review by Littletinkablee.com

Without an army at her side Ariel knows she will never stand a chance in a fight against Baza or Mik’hael and time has never been on her side. How do you win back an army that doesn’t see you as an equal let alone a leader?

Preparing for battling is going to test Ariel in ways she has never been tested before and with her attention split between a torn Rafe and beloved little sister Jess. Gaining her army back is just the first of her battles.

But as always Ariel isn’t one to give up nor is she someone who backs down when life gets tough. Too much is riding on her, she can’t give up just because most of her army has hate for her and for what she once used to be. Figuring out how to convince a bunch of arrogant angels to follow her lead is just the first of her battles.


Whenever I open one of Olga Gibbs books I am instantly sucked in the mind of Ariel and the new world she’s found herself in. Olga manages to capture Ariel’s character and paint her in a certain light while still allowing room to grow and change through each book.

Ariel is a young girl who like many young girl makes a lot of mistakes however Ariel is placed under a lot of stress and responsibility that she’s constantly aware is hanging over her head.

It’s exciting seeing Jess’s character come more to life in Harbinger. fascinating to find out how Rafe’s new change affects his relationship with Ariel.

As in any young woman’s life there are potential love interests, there are everyday problems/emotions that Ariel has to deal with or figure out and fight through. Personally I’m team Rafe (there’s just something about his loyalty that’s attractive about his character) but have to say that Sam’s character is somewhat…arrogant, intense and interesting.

Harbinger by Olga Gibbs – Book Review by Littletinkablee.com

With a memorising and beautiful cover, you are instantly drawn to Olga Gibb’s book Series ‘The Celestial Creatures’ and once you’ve opened it up, after you’ve flipped over that beautiful book cover and dive into the first chapter you will find yourself instantly addicted to this well-crafted, beautifully written series.

As much as I enjoyed reading Harbinger, as much as I am looking forward to reading the final book to the Celestial Creatures (Halo), I am also very much dreading coming to the end of this phenomenal dark fantasy series full of adventure, emotion, turmoil, danger, challenges and a new world with angels that I am going to be sadden to see the end of. However, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and we’re lucky enough to be one book behind from the end.

Harbinger is an absorbing, fast-paced, action-packed book that will have you absorbed from the very first page. Olga Gibbs world for Ariel is as dangerous and gruesome as it is magical and beautiful.

Harbinger is a short, well-written fast-paced book that will leave you hanging on the edge of your seat. Olga’s writing style is unique, engrossing and easy-to read, with her unique writing skills she is able to transport her readers into Ariel’s world, allowing us to feel and experience what Ariel is going through. You really feel as though you are apart of her whirl-wind thrilling and intense adventure.

I’d forever recommend the Celestial Series to everyone and anyone I know, as I believe this is one fast-paced, spellbinding, action-packed and Intense series is a series that anyone can get into and enjoy. This is an unforgettable series you don’t want to miss out on!

Thank you so much for reading my review, please don’t forget to check out Mel’s blog ‘ FraserFunHouse.com ,’ Olga Gibb’s links and the link to Harbinger.

And of course whenever I am participating in an incredible blog tour I won’t just ask you to take my word for it, but to also check out the other incredible review’s for Harbinger.
