Hello, and welcome back to my blog. It has been ages since the last time I posted on here, and got to say that I truly missed writing so I decided to start again.
Before we get to the main topic, I want to say that I truly appreciate every single one of you who decided to click and read this blog post.
Now let’s talk, and this time we are going to get a bit personal, but not too personal lol
So, why have I stopped writing ?
To be honest I have few reasons, but I will only be discussing one of them because I feel that you might be able to relate to it.
I have a severe anxiety and in case you don’t know what that is you can read about it here. The past couple of months were very tough and that’s because I let the negative thoughts control me.
You don’t know know how many blog posts I have written in the past and never hit the ‘publish’ button just because I got super worried about them not being up to standards.
Until I’ve made a decision of learning how to deal with my anxity, but I also want to help you overcome the negative thoughts in your head and give you a couple of things that I have found to be effective.
Here are some tips on how to manage or cope with your anxiety:
- Get yourself a diary.
Start writing about how you feel, it will help you reflect on what’s going on in your life and to get to know to yourself a bit more.
- Draw or paint.
You don’t have to be talented, the process itself is very soothing and relaxing to mind and soul.
- Speak to someone.
Talking to someone else can be helpful, I advice you to try to pay attention to what you’re saying, this can help you come up with solutions, and realize that some negative thoughts seem way bigger than they actually are.
- Go to the gym, do a sport or dance
My lovelies, never underestimate the importance of being active, as this can improve your mood and help your mental health, and it will make you feel more energised as well.
- It’s okay not to be okay!
You’re not supposed to feel all happy and confident 24/7 but do try to make yourself feel better by doing things that you love and enjoy. I would personally eat my fave dessert, or spend some quality time with a loved one. Sometimes I do both at the same time haha.
Last but not least, remember to enjoy the moment, live it and accept it, because things will get better. So take your time into finding the right mindset, smile and relax because you deserve to be happy.
Sending you lots of hugs, and wishing you all the best.
Till next time my lovelies.
