Merry Christmas! 🎄

Hey everyone, I hope your day has been well.

This year has been very eventful and its finally coming to an end, but not before we celebrate Christmas and the New Year. Although December is a time of food, drinks, and general indulgence, it is important not to over do it.

Here are some tips to staying (somewhat) healthy:

  1. Stick to a daily workout, something you enjoy and will look forward to.
  2. Cut out the added sugar in your drinks.
  3. Don’t feel forced to eat everything you are offered
  4. Eat more vegetables and salads in your meals to avoid snacking throughout the day.
  5. Opt for low sugar, salt and fat varieties.

I’ve really enjoy posting recipes again on WordPress and it’s been a great challenge for me to keep consistent and remain creative in the kitchen. Thanks to all of my new followers 🙂

I probably won’t be posting on here until the New Year, so I’ll see you in 2021!!

Soothing Anxious Thoughts

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by my blog today.

In these uncertain times, it is likely that everyone has felt a sense of anxiousness throughout the recent weeks. Whether you are working from home, social distancing or a key worker, it’s a good idea to just let yourself feel and be in the moment (but try not to stay down for too long). Even if you have always been an anxious person remember, every day is different and it’s always useful to try new things. I think anxiety is something that will pop up at different stages of our lives however, learning different coping mechanisms may help you to keep it under control and ignore the negative voice in our head. Also, when we wake up each morning, we have the chance to start again and live a new day.

Try my simple tips below to hopefully ease your anxious thoughts:

  • Read a book: fiction or non fiction, just read something and get captivated by each page.
  • Go for a walk: it can be down the road or to the park and spend a little time in nature.
  • Journal your thoughts: all you need is a pen and paper to write down how you are feeling, you might even look back on it and be surprised with how you were feeling. Its also a great tool for reflecting and seeing how far you have come.
  • Listen to music: sing the lyrics out loud to your favourite artist or turn up the volume to a relaxing genre.
  • Have a little cry: sometimes we just need to let all of the emotions out.

Comment below how you soothe your anxiety.
