OVERTHINKING map in Blurt Buddy Box

Posted on January 11, 2019 by Tina Bernstein

We are so very super chuffed to be able to reveal that our OVERTHINKING: the not-so-fun fair guide was in the Blurt Foundation's December BuddyBox.

The BuddyBox is a subscription box with substance, designed to counter the pressures we face in modern life. Packed full of thoughtful, mood-lifting treats, the BuddyBox comforts, delights and gives you that warm, ‘I’ve been cared for’ feeling inside. In other words – it’s a hug in a box.

ANNOUNCING DISTRIBUTION FOR UK & US

Posted on December 09, 2018 by Tina Bernstein

BIG NEWS!

I'm delighted to share that Mapology Guides now has distribution for the UK and the US (including Canada) with the lovely Sudha and Lee from Goldhawk International Book Solutions - this is a very exciting time and an incredible end to 2018.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. I think it also takes a village to build a business. There are so many people to thank - too many - so I will pick some pivotal moments.

1. My ex-business partner Mike, who said yes to my crazy idea on paper and helped me shape what is now Mapology Guides.

2. The very first stockist - Foyles Books - couldn't quite believe they said yes and put the very first three Mapology Guides by the tills in Charing Cross road.

3. The lovely Eminé Rushton - Wellbeing Director-at-large at Psychologies magazine, who was the first to feature Mapology Guides in a magazine (Dec. 2016).
That was huge and really gave us visibility.

4. The incredible Jayne Hardy, creator of The Blurt Foundation and Buddy Boxes - and author of The Self-Care Project and 365 Days of Self-Care: A Journal, who's continued support means the world.

5. The visionary serial entrepreneur Sidonie Warren of Papersmiths and Two Palms, who's stationery emporium sells 'Goods to inspire & tools to create'. Thank you for believing in me.

As I said, there are many to thank. A HUGE thank you goes to all the incredibly talented illustrators and writers that I've had the pleasure to work with.

Mapology Guides might look colourful and simple, but they are incredibly complex to create. A lot of hard work and love is poured into every single one.

To all my stockists, every single person who has bought a map, everyone on Social Media that has liked a picture or left a comment. A thousand thank yous.

Can’t stop overthinking?
You’re not alone. Most of us worry about the future, ruminate about the past, and get bogged down in concerns or regrets (often both!).
But there is a way to turn down the volume on that busy brain of yours, even if it doesn’t feel possible right now.

This guide will help you discover proven ways to change your thinking and lead a more peaceful

How To Grow Your NO - this tiny word will change your life

Concept and Design Tina Bernstein // Illustrated by Nic Farrell // 
Written by Lottie Storey

It’s easy to think that the ability to say NO - like a talent for gardening - is something you’re either born with or you’re not. But that’s simply not true. Just like you can turn brown fingers green, saying NO is a skill we can all develop and grow. And it can change your life.

This guide will help you figure out when, where and with whom to use your carefully chosen NO. Say goodbye to feeling resentful, weary and put upon! Get ready to stay in control and stand your ground, and watch your life change for the better.
