I love Netflix. Orange is the New Black, Gossip Girl, Jane the Virgin, if its trashy TV I’ve probably seen it! BUT, and this is a big but, not all of Netflix is your addictive rubbish TV; theres a film on there that has literally changed the way I look at life and it’s really worth a watch!
I’ve decided to write a gratitude journal. For those that have no idea what this is, I will explain! I’m also going to give you lovelies a little insight in to why I’ve decided to make this addition to my life and why I think you should give it a try too! Gratitude journals are a great way of adding some positivity into your life!
Ooh what’s this you may ask! The Law of Attraction? Hmm… Some super awesome law that helps you find your perfect partner? The perfect way to be attractive? Something to do with magnets? Nope! This is about how you can get what you want by believing in it!
Now I know the weather isn’t the best but it is still technically summer, so the question all over the media is “Are you bikini ready?” I say hell yeah! And here’s why everyone of all sizes, races and genders should be body positive this summer!
Okay so this happened the other day…
I was talking to someone about my blog and what I do and how I like to promote body positivity and self-love. This is a standard conversation for me as I love talking about what I do, however, they asked me for my dress size.
Sometimes the stress of life can just get a little all too much. You could be working ridiculous hours in your job, studying day and night for exams or even just having so many little jobs and hobbies that you seem to just lose all your free time! Sometimes life can get all too busy for all of us so one thing I have been doing a lot more recently is going for walks.
I have a black and white mind. For those that don’t know what this means, it means I see things as right or wrong – yes or no. I find it difficult to sometimes see the grey. Sometimes I can’t always see where the rules don’t apply. The characteristics, of this way of being, I’d always acknowledged but I never really understood what it meant.
I have more or less recovered from my anxiety by applying a variety of techniques and practices into my life. Even so, I’m a long way from the end. Since at university I’ve suffered from two panic attacks but it hasn’t hindered me – it’s helped me grow. I see my journey as exactly that: a journey. It’s a process of development and acceptance of myself as an individual.
After realising I couldn’t go it alone anymore, I sought a variety of ways of helping myself to deal with my anxiety and even went to counselling. Despite the negative stigma around it, without it, I wouldn’t have made progress so quickly. It’s one of the main reasons why I want to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health issues as you should never be too embarrassed to ask for help!
Are you beach body ready?!
Um, yes I am actually because guess what? Having a so-called beach body means that I have to put a swimsuit on my body. Done.
