Self Care Sunday

Looking after yourself is so important, and that is something that I should make more of a priority in my life.

Today has been very peaceful, I have always loved Sundays. I do wish the weekend could last a bit longer.

Going to try and wake up early tomorrow. It helps me feel better, and starts the day off right.

Being kind to yourself can be so therapeutic and humbling.

A little TLC makes a big difference.

Take care, stay safe and have a great evening.

Tired But Awake

Things to do, no energy but still not able to sleep just yet.

Story of my life these days, it seems.

Frankly, I look forward to the weekend. A time to rest, think less and be more mindful.

Hoping to have an early start tomorrow, to inspire my productivity and energy levels, for that matter.

Have a wonderful evening.

Gratitude List

The week is almost over, and it has certainly been eventful, slightly chaotic and stressful, but still better than the previous two.

Looking forward to the weekend ahead, I can’t wait to rest a lot, eat well and take it easy.

I’ve tried to be more mindful recently, if I’m honest.

Almost midnight here, kind of tired so I might go and sleep shortly.

Have a wonderful evening, everyone.

Monday Thoughts

July is around the corner, literally.

I was going to write earlier in the day, but lost track of time. To be honest, it’s been a long day.

Mondays are always so tiring, as the start of the week usually is.

Hope you all have a great week!

Bliss Of Peaceful Sundays

Think I finally got the rest I needed today, which is great. We shall see if I go to sleep soon. Got a lot of revision to do, places to go on Tuesday, and an exam on the 25th.

I’m honestly nervous, because my memory has been so terrible in the last few weeks.

Studying definitely needs to be a priority, my brain needs to retain all that information.

All I want now is a creativity boost so I can write a bit more. Would love to work on stories later in life too.

But for now, this will be enough. I adore my blog. Hope you’re all doing okay. Have a great day!

Things To Look Forward To

I almost forgot to write today, but thankfully I managed to remind myself in time.

A semi-productive day, with a few tasks to be accomplished yet. Got a lot of revision to do in the next few weeks, train tickets to book and much more.

Despite how unpredictable life has been for the longest time, I’m trying to remain on the optimistic side of things, as difficult as that may be at times.

The one thing I am looking forward to the most, is seeing family members for the first time in almost 18 months.

What I also look forward to is completing more work on this next poetry book of mine. Maybe I’ll complete it this year, or perhaps in the next year or so, we’ll see.

As always, I hope you all have a great day.

We Meet Again, Hello June

It’s a new month, once more. To think six months have gone by already, that is strange yet intriguing.

Had plenty of good ideas on what to write, but when you’ve got the flu, you just need to take a step back, focus on your health and rest, so that’s what I’ve been doing for the most part.

My energy levels might be low right now, but my optimism isn’t. That being said, I’m currently writing this as I contemplate what time to sleep, or if I can sleep at all tonight. Congestion is not fun.

But, I’m not letting that get in the way of a lot, although exercise is something that I have been less focused on.

That’s not a bad thing, of course. I try and listen to what my body is telling me.

Hope you’re all having a good day and I’ll speak to you more on the next entry of the blog.

Paint Monday Blue

When things don’t quite go to plan, your stress levels can go through the roof if you’re not careful. At least, that’s how it felt for me today.

Monday felt particularly blue, so I definitely made an effort to be kind to myself. It can be easy to get overwhelmed by our thoughts in the moment, experienced that one too many times in my life.

I actually found myself buying a self-help audiobook out of curiosity about how to manage emotions in times of feeling this way. That was certainly helpful, hearing other people’s experiences and what helps them balance it all out.

Easier said than done, as I’m sure a lot of people will say about this too.

If the past year has taught me anything, it’s that looking after yourself and your mental health is so important. When you nurture your mind, your body and your soul, everything else will fall into place, eventually.
