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!

As a student I have experienced my fair share of exams in the past. And as exam season is upon us, or rapidly approaching for some, I thought I would share my top tips on how to stay as relaxed as possible at this stressful time! Now as I’m sure some of you may know if you read my anxiety post I suffer with anxiety. Therefore I’m not always cool as a cucumber when it comes to exam day. However, this has allowed me to come up with my own little list of what I do to help reduce my stress. Now this is what works for me, so it may not work for everyone!

Now this is a post I’ve wanted to write since the idea of starting a blog came to my mind. I can tell it will be a long one so I’m going to split it up a little into a few posts so you’re not too overwhelmed! I wanted to be able to share my own experiences with you in the hope of helping even just one other person. As I’m sure you’re aware, May is my ‘Mental Health Awareness’ Month so this post today is about my own struggle with social anxiety. I’ve mentioned before in previous posts about having anxiety but never really divulged much information; so that is what today’s post is for.
