Hello everyone! I was away last week and I missed World Mental Day. However, I’ve wanted to post this for a while and just to empathise we can talk about mental health anytime!
Hello everyone, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday! It is currently a miserable day in Oxford (what a surprise, it’s England), and I love how much these flowers just brighten up my day. I am currently recovering from my week off and preparing to start work again tomorrow (so sad about this). You know that feeling of dread when you’ve been off for a long time and you just don’t want to return to the workplace.
I spent the beginning of the week in Amsterdam and I had a fantastic time! I relaxed, explored and indulged in so many sugary delights. I would recommend going to Amsterdam and I will do a blog post about my travels later on this week!
I’ve been finding it hard to reset and get back to normalcy. I am slowly getting back into my routine and preparing for the week ahead.
Does anybody have any tips on how you can get back into a routine after a holiday?
I am hoping to post a bit more this month and finally do my about me page. I really enjoy blogging thus far and I am grateful for anyone who has spent time to read my posts!
Anyway, hope everyone has a lovely week ahead and I will see you in my next post!
Oh, podcasts, how I used to diss thee.
We’ve all been through this. The person who we love and adore whether it be a partner, family member or a friend hurts us. This could be because they said something or did something we did not like. In this post, I’ll go through steps on how you can forgive and move on from this hurt.
Before moving in with my fiancé, I lived ‘alone’ for 9 months. By alone, I mean I moved to a different city from uni/home and shared a flat with people I did not know. This experience was a lot different than starting at university for me, which something I was very naïve about. Not a lot of people talk about these experiences and how hard it can be. I hope this post helps someone struggling with loneliness to realise that you are not alone.
Gratitude is one of the most amazing and powerful things in this world. Your life can be instantly turned around by just saying thank you. However, what even is gratitude and how does it achieve this?? In this blog post, I’ll be exploring this and then giving tips on how you can incorporate gratitude in your life.
This blog post is something that has been quite personal to me. Being in a rut is not great and being unhappy sucks. I do hope these practical tips could help somebody out there as they have worked for me. I do want to say that if you’re still feeling unhappy and especially if you’re feeling suicidal or having suicidal thoughts, please talk to someone a relative, friend, healthcare professional.
This photo was taken during my weekend in the countryside visiting my in-laws (future in-laws). There’s something about being in the countryside that’s so relaxing and calming! It was nice hanging out with my in laws doing wholesome things like going to a garden centre and a flower show in one of the local churches. My 9-5 job sometimes doesn’t give me the time to unwind and really live in the moment, but this weekend I did get that chance! It was great to have an easy weekend playing with the dogs and going on walks. I loved the community feel the village had and there were a lot of things going on. Most of the people in the village were older, retired and living their best lives (I hate this saying but it’s very true). It was quite inspiring to see and knowing I could do this too. At times it does feel I don’t live the life I know I can, but this is something I am working on.
I think it’s very important to have breaks away from your normal life and relax. I feel super refreshed and ready to crack on with this blog. If something is important to you, you should make time for it. Whether this is spending time with my family and friends or keeping up with my blog. I’ve recently moved to a new flat and started a new job. It has been hard to adjust to everything, but I am ready to be more consistent with my blog! I guess this blog will give me a chance to see my journey in improving my life and spending time doing things I love. Hopefully I can help people along the way too.
Thank you for reading, hope everyone is having a great day!
Hi everyone, my name is Ange, welcome to my blog. I have a
little confession to make…this is my second attempt at a blog. My first attempt
was horrible and did not last long. I found it very hard to find time to do it,
and to sum it up, I wasn’t committed to it at all. I did feel like I had ‘failed’
at blogging, but I should have stuck out the hard times.
Just a little bit about me, I am 23 years old and I currently work in healthcare in the UK. The reason why I have started this blog again is because I just want an escape from my 9-5 job. I do love writing and would love to improve. Also, I want to use this platform to connect with other people and help others. I guess this will be a lifestyle, promoting self-love, productivity, self-growth blog (is that even a niche?)
I am very excited to start this adventure of blogging again and can’t wait to see where it takes me!
