How I Practice Self Care

It is currently a Sunday afternoon when I’m writing this and it has been one of those days where I’ve switched myself off from the world, done my own thing and my body is extremely grateful for that.

I may have woken up at 6am, this may be the fifth blog post that I’ve written, I may have done a full food shop at ASDA and read a few chapters of my book but everything that I’ve done, I’ve done it because I wanted to.

Doing what you want to do is very important.

Self care is very important.

A Mental Health Update And How You Can Donate

I am so pleased that discussing mental health is no longer a stigma.

Around six years ago, I suffered heavily with panic attacks and anxiety due to a traumatic previous relationship during University as well as my Mum being diagnosed with Cancer. It was a lot to deal with in a very short space of time.

I didn’t know what panic attacks were. I honestly thought I had extremely bad indigestion which was making me feel dizzy and suffer from a mouth that had been transformed into a dessert.

My Goals For The Rest Of 2019

At the beginning of each year, I tend not to set myself any resolutions for the simple reason that I tend to either break them after two weeks or I’m not motivated enough.

But for a number of years, I’ve had goals for the first part of the year and once we hit the middle of June, I tend to set myself some more until the end of December.

During January to June, I told myself to continue working out weekly, read more books, find a career I truly want and to focus on my mental health.

Life Update: A New Job, Books And Travel Plans

Life has been a little bit crazy during the past month or so.

I’ve shared some little slices of news over on my Instagram, but I’m yet to share any sort of news with you all on my blog.

I’ve been meaning to do a catch up style of blog post for a few weeks now but in an evening, my brain is mush so here I am at 7am on a Saturday morning, trying to put a proper blog post together for you all…

A New Perspective Of Liverpool

One thing you should know about me is that I love seeing a city from above.

When we went to Bath in July, we visited the top of the Abbey and the views were absolutely breath taking but for a very long time, I’ve wanted to see what Liverpool had to offer from up above.

Recently, the Royal Liver Building have opened their doors to the public for a 70 minute tour of the iconic building and so, I jumped at the chance to book tickets for my Mum and I during a day off.

The Truth About Being Unemployed

The current unemployment rate in the United Kingdom is 3.9% and even though that number may seem small and irrelevant to some, it is still an outstanding percent of people who are out of work.

I was one of those people.

I have been one of those people multiple times. I am grateful that I am no longer one of those people. I’m pleased to say that I am no longer unemployed.

The Five Year Plan: Do I Need One Or Should I Go With The Flow?

As Phoebe in Friends once said, “I don’t even have a pla-”

Life is unexpected.

You can plan a road trip, you can plan your education, you can plan which TV show you’re going to binge watch but can you really plan your life?

There is such a thing as a five year plan; setting yourself goals, directing yourself towards the right path and eventually, you will hopefully get what you wanted.

It sounds easy, right?

Life is unexpected. Do I need to say that again?

Why I Prefer To Have A Small Friendship Circle

When I was younger, I had no issues in making friends.

During my primary school days, you were friends with the entire class and you wouldn’t even think about not inviting someone to your birthday party.

In high school, you try to remain within your group of primary school friends but due to your separate classes, you spend less time with each other and more time with people who you begin to call friends.

What happens when you go to a completely different college with only one friend and they leave two weeks in? You’re forced to make new friends, the ones who you share classes with and you quickly become friends with their friends.

But then University happens and they say you make your friends for life there, but what happens when you only speak to one of them almost ten years on?

None of this bothers me. I have three friends in my life and I’m happy about that.
