Here are a few of Lauries top tips:

  • The Desire Mapping and Planners Laurie mentioned can be found here.

  • Use time-blocking to help combat anxiety, and don’t try to get it all done on one day!

  • feel your feelings, and give them great monikers, such as nervous-ite-ed: for when you’re feeling specifically nervous and excited!

On letting things go:

  • “learning what matters and what doesn’t matter is a huge thing and I think we all go through our own journey to figuring that out.”

On creating genuine online relationships:

  • “I think we’re lucky….one thing I have found to really help to engage with people’s emotions and more of that body language and realness is through Instagram (or Facebook) stories…It allows you to see the realness”
