Hello World. It’s the start of a new week & possibly the start of a new attitude.
These past few months have been difficult for me, I find myself being anxious all the time & having angry outbursts. Starting a new high pressured job, putting pressure on myself for my blog to reach certain goals, beating myself up because my Instagram doesn’t have a theme, constantly worrying about one thing or the other,comparing myself to my peers & just general “adulting” it’s just all too much tbh. And it’s not just me, my friends are experiencing the same feelings of anxiety , which begs the question how do we make it stop.
So in between my outbursts this weekend,popping calmettes and trying not to lose my shit, I knew something had to change. This week I have promised I will take better care of myself. This starts by getting back to basics, going back to doing things I enjoyed doing because of how it made me feel. I started blogging because I needed a creative outlet, it’s never been about all the other stuff. I’ve been getting so wrapped up in the noise of social media that I’ve forgotten my soul purpose.
Getting back to basics also means concentrating on my breathing. I find this breathing exercise helps defuse the situation:
- 1. Inhale, count 5 heartbeats
- 2. Hold breath, count 7 heartbeats
- 3. Exhale, count 9 heartbeats
Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves?! If you find yourself overwhelmed or pressurized this week just STOP for a second! Remember that our timeline is not God’s. Breathe! Then go get some ice cream. In the end the only thing that matters is being the best version of you.Take care of yourself in which ever way you need. As always Thank you for reading , with all my love F xx
