For quite a while now, I have had a bit of a creativity slump. I’ve not wanted to create; it’s like I’ve become tired and bored with it almost. I feel like I’ve lost a limb because my creative side is huge part of who I am. So, I’ve been trying different things to re-inspire myself. If you’ve been feeling the same, these tips might help you too.
A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. This is perhaps one of my favourite quotes, because it’s so true!
Although I love vegging out on a Sunday, it’s also good to get a few of those pesky chores done before the new working week starts. Here are some things I do on a Sunday to make my week run a little more smoothly.
Over the past 6-7 months, I’ve had to seriously think about my own happiness.
Writing a post about anxiety is always a tough-y. I don’t want to come across weird, and I do worry about what potential and current employers might think, as well as what my family and friends might think. However, I have learnt a lot about ways to combat anxiety through social media, blogging and YouTube. Knowing that someone else feels the same way that I do.
I tend to stay away from the topic of mental health bar the few post shares on facebook and the odd post because I get anxious (ironically) that it will upset my family or give people the wrong impression of me! However, if I can share a few tips and tricks here and there and keep the conversation going about mental health I feel like I’m ‘doing my bit’ as it were. I find reading other people’s tips and tricks really useful so it’s only fair that I share my own.
Basically my Pick Me Up Box is just box that I filled with treats and ‘pick me ups’ for days when I’m not feeling too great! You simply just grab any box (shoe boxes work fab for this) and fill it with whatever makes you feel great! I was lucky enough to attend the HBAlporto Hull Bloggers Summer Meet this year so I had a lot of samples and products lying around however anyone could still fill a box with things they love and consider a treat – it does not have to be expensive!
Hope this little tip helped some of you! What would you put in your box? Have you got any tips for quick pick me ups on bad days?
I originally wrote this post in January 2015, and I thought I’d review it and add bits in that I have learnt over the past 2 years. It’s funny really because, although my worries were probably quite different back then, it’s scarily similar to how I am feeling now. I think January is a time when everyone feels down in the dumps. Christmas is over, and it’s time to get back to normality. A lot of people feel quite motivated by the start of a new year, but I always seem to feel down and anxious about the year ahead. And 2017 is no different.
