Everyone needs time out at some point, always, because if we don’t life has that horrible thing of catching up with us and biting us in the backside. Your health and happiness is so important, so we need to remind ourselves that taking time out is what keeps us ticking over nicely. As someone who struggles to say no to taking on new adventures I am definitely that person who likes to have a full book of things to do, I live by the motto you have to wok hard for your dreams, so that is exactly what I am trying to do! Although over the last few weeks, I have come to realise that if you work hard, you have to give yourself a little bit of a break, just time to rejuvenate. So what are the things that I like to schedule weekly to keep me positive and happy?
Honestly working out helps stop me from losing my mind constantly, I think if I didn’t workout I would literally be lost. It gives me time to focus on myself, if I’m angry, I get a lot of rage and anger out, and not only that once I have finished, I feel like I could conquer the world. Well a world that was drowned in sweat like I normally am but hey ho!
Netflix is one of the best things ever invented, I love being able to binge watch TV programmes, I mean once Pretty Little Liars and Orange Is The New Black is back, you honestly won’t get a word from me, I’ll be too busy on Netflix. I’m probably going to need an arrow above my head saying, binge watching in progress, only bother in an emergency.
Time With My Husband
As you probably know, my husband is my world, I bang on about him enough! So making sure that I spend time with him is so important even if it is just cuddling in bed watching a movie, I don’t care. He works so hard and I am so grateful for everything he does, we both worship the ground we walk on.
My family are some of the best people ever, and I get to spend a lot of time with my wonderful in laws (including the cats – sorry Mumma Cadwallader) which alwys puts a smile on my face because they’re so funny and hilarious! My mum and step dad are both just so kind and caring, I mean they would do anything for anyone if they asked or if they couldn’t do it, they would find a way to make it work. I don’t get to see my dad and step mum very often because of the distance, however, when I do get to see them it is always very special, my dad has been so supportive with my depression, got me to see an amazing doctor, and just genuinely never gave up on me, just like everyone else in my family so I think it is so important to make time for the people who matter and forget the people who don’t.
Having a good face mask on doesn’t compare to anything, especially if you’re left with gorgeous soft skin afterwards and you just have a chance to chill out, it’s one of the most perfect things ever! I always recommend a good lush face mask because they smell amazing, my current favourite is Cup O’ Coffee!
Time Away From The Computer/Social Media
Social media can be such a huge part of our lives, especially with technology right at out fingertips, so making sure that you just take a moment to be away from your phone/laptop or tablet can really help, I know it definitely puts everything into perspective for me! Never feel like you have to post on social media all of the time, recently I’ve been worried that I haven’t been posting enough but it’s important to remember that you’re just a person, you can’t do everything all of the time, life happens!
