First of all, I'm SO glad you're here! Your interest in my designs and the mission of Peel & Heal Studio is appreciated wholeheartedly.
I'm Haley, the owner, artist, and advocate behind all things Peel & Heal! For as long as I can remember, I've relied on a paper planner to stay on top of priorities. Planning became essential to my young adult life, though, when I was diagnosed with mental illnesses and related physical health complications. I quickly gravitated towards decorative planning as a therapeutic and artistic coping skill to deal with my demons and was soon introduced to the benefits of journaling as well.
At a time in my life where the days felt like a blur and hope was fleeting, these tools were essential to my commitment in recovery. Not only did this hobby help me stay on top of all my appointments, it forced me to accept my reality and tackle the REAL issues head-on (which were vastly different from the primary concerns of my peer group at 20 years old).
As I became more involved in the community of planner lovers, I began to notice a lack of decorative options related to health and wellness. Not only that, but I sensed a pervasive trend of perfectionism that overshadowed the amazingly creative minds of these people. I began creating stickers to fulfill my personal need for meal trackers and therapy reminders during recovery from anorexia. And not much later, I opened the virtual doors of Peel & Heal Studio on Etsy in the hopes of inspiring other planners to acknowledge and prioritize the maintenance of their physical and mental health.
The mission of Peel & Heal Studio is quite simple: I want to help others reclaim their authenticity. I know what it feels like to grow up in a world that is productivity-obsessed and superficially driven. I spent years of my life sucked into cycles of self-hatred and self-destruction. As I've gained strength and traction in my recovery, though, I've realized the importance of sharing the tools the helped me escape such an unfulfilled life. This transparency and candor is the backbone of my business. Taking ownership of our realities is the foundation for INCREDIBLE change. You have what it takes to push onward...and I'm blessed to have a platform to encourage people towards that realization.
Recovery from mental illness isn't a random occurrence, just as the journey of self love doesn't develop overnight. Through Peel & Heal Studio, I am proud to provide meaningful planning tools that ring true to YOUR individualized struggles and cultivate a sense of self-worth. Health doesn't look the same for everyone. There is great strength in taking ownership of your life and acknowledging your inherent worth. There is even more power in the ability to take that self-worth and use it as fuel for genuine personal growth.
With the understanding that every single individual is trekking along his/her own unique path to well-being, I strive to create planning tools that honor wherever you are in your healing process & resources that acknowledge the importance and validity of your trials and tribulations. Peel & Heal Studio represents my efforts to help YOU along your wellness journey while simultaneously challenging the misconception that wellness is a one-size-fits-all goal.
Thanks so much for checking out what Peel & Heal Studio has to offer! Your support of my creative venture means the world to me and continues to inspire growth and stability in my own healing process. Wishing you health, happiness, and contentment-- now and always! You are SO worth it.
