Hi. After my intentions of getting back to the grind failed and another month passed with few updates from me, I feel it’s time to have a real conversation. Consider this a letter from a friend whom you lost touch with along the way.
Self-care and Sundays go hand in hand, so I thought I would take the opportunity to reflect on the matter. Honestly, at times I can be pretty terrible at taking care of myself emotionally, physically, mentally- just all the ways. I think we all know we should always take care of ourselves, but what does that really look like?
It’s my first blog post of the new year! Naturally, I’ve been thinking about what 2018 will bring, but I’m not on board with the “new year, new me” mentality. Before we’re back to my typical content, I want to share what’s to come and how I’m approaching this year.
A lot of my posts are connected to healthy living in some way, whether it’s nontoxic beauty or a whole foods vegan diet, mental health or self love, but I haven’t talked about exercise. Well, unless telling you what you should wear while working out counts. The truth is my relationship with exercise is on again, off again and I’m so over it.
Happy Sunday! I had a different post planned for today, but sometimes plans are better off ditched. There’s been a resurgence in the My Perfect Imperfections tag on YouTube and I had no intentions of filming a video or writing a blog post about it, but here we are and we’re doing it, so you know I’m a human just like you and not a perfect little blogger alien.
Though it’s a perhaps a bit different from what I typically share, I’m excited to bring this post to you. October 10th was World Mental Day and seeing so many people share their stories and resources was wonderful, but it also made me feel a bit silly because I’ve never really spoken about my experience. I’ve mentioned it here and there, but it deserves to be addressed properly. Rather than droning on without direction, I took inspiration from Rhian HY and will be sharing five things I’ve learned from my mental health disorders.
It feels like I just shared my September favorites, but somehow I already have a few things I’m itching to share. I would save them for an October favorites post, but I have something a little different planned for the end of the month, which I think you’ll enjoy. As for today, there will some products and some rambling because it’s Sunday and on Sundays, we keep it casual.
What. A. Week. I really wasn’t anticipating this week to be absolutely overwhelming and draining. This weekend has been all about recharging because I just had to stop and regroup. The to-do list can wait until Monday! I hope you all get some time to relax this weekend too. Since I’m happily cozied up and will be making the tastiest vegetable stew later, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to tell you why I enjoy fall so much. I know the internet goes crazy for pumpkins and cozy vibes, but for me, autumn used to be a bit of a sad time.
I wish I could tell you the one trick to doing it all, but the balancing act isn’t easy. There have been days where I’m not very active online, nights where I don’t get enough sleep and weeks where I don’t exercise. Not exactly my dream life… I’ve been back to class for over month now and I’m finally finding my groove, but honestly, finding balance in life can be hard! Hard, but not impossible. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with your academics, blog and everything else I hope my tips help you get back on track.
I think the title makes this sound way bigger than it really is.
