Respect and love – tough post to write.

hi all.

Really strange post for me today and I’ve been putting it off for sometime, as it’s taken me quite a while to process.

Family means everything to me. My family is a small family made up of myself, my brother and my parents. On the one side of the family we are super close and the other side, like most families we simply do not talk. Family to me is not just blood but it’s who is there for you, who is there for you to pick up the pieces when you’re feeling down or when you’re celebrating.

But this post is all about my blood family, especially my nan.

Chill out zone – remember to look after your mental health

Every once in awhile, we just really need to sit back, relax and take our mind elsewhere.

I definitely have those moments and still have them, where I just need to walk away. I do it at work, when I am stressed I take 5 minutes and just stand outside, look up at the sky and remember how minuscule you are in this small world of ours. I think in this quick paced environment we live in nowadays, where anyone can contact you with a press of a button, we do need to take time out for ourselves.

You will see at the top of my blog there is the menu section, if you’re ever feeling this way and just need to chill, hover over the “Chill out zone” link at the top.

What’s in the chill out zone:

Here within this little space of heaven are a number of links that I have found over the years that have really helped me relax. Anxiety attacks are bloody awful, I know. But we only have 1 body, we need to learn to love it more. (If you’re on your mobile, click the menu button on the top and you’ll get the links lovely).

  • Quiet place – take a few minutes out, no music, no distractions and just focus on what you can see
  • Rainy mood – I freaking love the sound of rain, so this always chills me out
  • Do nothing for 2 minutes – what is says on the tin, please just use this if you need a quick fix. But if you don’t do what it says, it’ll take longer, just relax and go with it. It works
  • The thoughts room – don’t know what to do with your thoughts, put them here
  • Intotime – a relaxing interactive colour website
  • Silk – have a play with some interactive silk
  • Headspace– a great website and app to help relax and meditate
  • Calm – a lovely meditation app which helps you fall asleep
  • Emergency compliment – sometimes you just needa pick me up
  • Liquid particles – what it says on the tin, go and play
  • Stress analyst – see how it can help you!
  • Cat noises – meow – for those who feel like they need a cat purring in their life
  • Cute overload – hey who doesn’t love looking at cute animals!!!
  • Mind UK – a great charity, available for you to talk to
  • Young minds – a charity for children and adolescents
  • Time to change – a list of mental health organisations that you can talk to
  • Headspace – a calm environment where you can listen to chilled out relaxing techniques
  • Apps for well-being and mental health – the lovely mind charity have put together a list of wonderful apps for your mobile or tablet for managing your wellbeing and mental health.

✌🏻🖤

What I have learnt about myself recently.

Hey you lovely people, I thought I would write a post about learning about yourself. Learning what you like about yourself, what you stand for and how you can develop as a person.

Someone’s personality can either happen in a single night, a week or over the course of a year. But a lot can happen in a year, and from what you learn you grow . I therefore thought I would take you through the year and maybe you might take on board somethings…

Why do I fear being in a relationship?

So, this is a post that I have been putting off writing for years, and I literally mean years. I’m hoping that by writing it, it will clear away so many thoughts in my head, or even just some weight off my shoulders.

I suck at relationships/ people liking me.

There I said it. I’m so bored of it. I thought I would write down all of the thoughts in my head… here we go: Continue reading “Why do I fear being in a relationship?”

10 things I learnt about growing up 

I am getting to the stage in life where either most of my friends are engaged, married, going to have babies, are parents or going through relationship breakups because they haven’t lasted since the start of their 20’s. I am in my late 20s now, and it is a bit of a strange age, for me personally I still feel like im 21 and it still feels as though I left Uni last year and not nearly 10 years ago. It made me realise what the hell have I learnt really, and what I could have said to myself all those years ago. Continue reading “10 things I learnt about growing up “

Day 18: what I like about being a female

The recent women’s marches across the world really made me think about how great women are as a sex and how we fight for and support each other. Now I have already wrote about what like most about men, so don’t say I’m being biased!
I therefore thought I’d put together a collection of what j like about being female.

So, here we go:

Day 15: what makes me happy

Hello lovely readers, so first of all…. IT’S MY BIRTHDAY week (5th Jan)!!!!!!!! I am of ripe old age of 28. Yes 28, I did think that my life would be very different right now, but hey that’s life.

Today’s blog is all about happiness and what a great day to do the blog as I am feeling extra happy.

Happiness is a feeling, a thought, a smell, a memory and a sensation. If you can think of one happy thought a day, it really does help.
