This teen went viral for his genius way of tracking mental health
If you’re anything like us, you’re currently obsessed with bullet journaling. It’s the perfect combination of a dairy, a planner, and a to-do list, all in one compact notebook. Since discovering the concept, we’ve been all about this way of organizing our life and thoughts — but we’re still learning some of the most effective ways to use the mechanism. Case in point, this teen has found a new way to use bullet journals and it’s actually an incredible way to track your mental health over a long period of time. Sixteen year-old Kyra Bailey told Buzzfeed that she was inspired by a post on Instagram encouraging people to “track their year in pixels.”
Kyra’s 21 year-old brother Markale stumbled across the tracker and loved the idea so he posted it on Twitter.
The post quickly went viral. Markale told Buzzfeed that he simply wanted to share his sister’s creativity with others but is inspired by how many people are following suit and making their own trackers.
Kyra told Buzzfeed that using the tracker has made a positive impact on her life.
We love how much attention this tweet has gotten. There is still an incredible stigma surrounding mental health and mental health issues so it’s so heartwarming to see people speaking out about looking out for their mental health.
The idea is such a colorful idea in tracking our mental health! We think it’s a fabulous idea and can’t wait to give it a try.
